a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Graduating into a recession in societies where unemployment is frowned upon, adjusting from school into a shrivelling economy. I want a zine to collect our feelings, struggles, and coping's with transitioning from student life into unemployment, or into unstable employment (i.e. being in and out of work, or on temping contracts). I’m interested in how
this has affected people’s identity, mental health, physical health,
friendships, lovers, families, location, financial stability, sense of
community and belonging, as well as how these experiences relate to class,
citizenship, colonization, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and dis/ability.
Submissions can be personal stories, advice, comics, poetry, artwork, or
whatever else you can manage to get on paper. Submissions should be no longer
than around 1000 words. Anonymous entries are welcome.
Submission deadline: 10 AUGUST 2010/ DEADLINE EXTENDED TBA
Send along your submissions, questions, and thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have materials that can’t be sent digitally, lemme know and we shall work something out via the lovely snail mail. Also, as are the restraints of my dismal budget, bare in mind the zine
will be printed in black and white.
Pass this call out along to your friends and listservs!
