Hello all,

I am seeking submissions for a zine I would like to start surrounding the theme, “Stuttering.” I am inviting anyone who is interested to creatively express your perceptions, experiences, stories, emotions, or information about stuttering through writing and visual art. I am seeking written material including narrative accounts, poems, and stories; as well as drawings, photography, collage, or any other creative means in which you would like to share your experiences, emotional responses, perceptions, thoughts, ideas, observations, commentary, or anything else relating to the theme of stuttering.

Other ideas: If you stutter, what would you like your listeners to know when you are speaking to them? Can you draw a picture of what it feels like to stutter? Do you have tips or techniques to share? This zine is yet-to-be-named and suggestions for titles are welcome by contributors.

The tentative deadline for submissions is December 1, 2013. The zine will be published soon after.

The format of zine will be black and white, 8-1/2 x 11 (half size).

Please email submissions, plus your name and contact info to stutteringvoices@yahoo.com

Also, feel free to spread the word to those who might be interested!

Hi all.  I have epilepsy, chronic daily migraine, and my neuros have been trying to rule out MS for a while now.  Anyway.  I've been working on a piece on body image with a disability, and I'd like to eventually try to compile a zine of pieces on body image from the perspective of people with disabilities, as that's often an ignored perspective in the feminist "love your body"/body positive/body acceptance movement (it's hard for me to simply "love my body" when I could, say, lose bladder control without warning and am in chronic pain).

Hi, ally here, depending on how you're determining disability.  I have mental health issues, would like to learn to be a better ally regarding physical disabilities.

I made a new zine recently and I had a group of stick figures, and I realized I could draw a stick figure in a wheelchair.  That was a big eye opener for me, as far a way to be more inclusive.

Comment by Happylikeafish on March 19, 2013 at 8:14am
@incurable hippie I get what you mean. You're saying that your disability is more of a physical trait ( like eye colour or skin tone etc.) and not a characteristic of your personality, behaviour, actions and overall general way of being. I know what you mean. It's a difficult thing to grasp when society has already defined what constitutes you as a person, without necessarily having felt its affects themselves (itself?)

Anyways I should introduce myself. My name is kristi pereira and I am an cartoonist/illustrator (though not in any official sense- still in art school but only 3weeks left then grad!!! Hooroar!)

I want to start a zine ('twill be my first!) about accessibility, representation and my own personal accounts with disability.

I have had many surgeries (portal hypertension/ esophageal variecies compartment syndrome, tendon transfer, and a splenal-renal shunt),complete unilateral hearing loss ( just got CROS hearing aids 2 weeks ago!!!), CSPD (dermatillomania) a bit of trichotillomania, and am severely ADD inattentive ( just found that out for certain in February). I also work as a Behavioural Interventionist (ABA Therapy), worked for a year and a bit a a care worker with a really awesome lady who was non-verbal and has cerebral palsy, and volunteer-worked at a children's home in S.A. With babies who had HIV, hydrocephalus, cp .

Anyways the one thing I've noticed about all this is the attitudes and lack of resources available for those with a disability. It really frustrates the hell out of me that accessibility isn't usually considered in product/architecture design and that there can be a huge amount of shame surrounding ppl with a disability (both in themselves and with family members or friends) and complete disrespect and cruelty for people with disabilities. Or the way people "nobel-ize" others or themselves for being/working with/living with a person who has a disability. The worst is that I sometimes find myself unintentionally falling "victim" to a lot of these same faults, which shows me there is so much more I need to learn.

So zines. Since I'm new at this any advice would be amazing! Thanks for listening to my rant :) Tweet me if you like @kristipereira

Hi Zinesters!
My name's Dawn. I am a former NYC public high school ESL teacher who taught zine-making to my students. Now, I'm in library school studying to become a community college/academic librarian, hopefully. 


Anyway, I am currently in an information literacy pedagogy course, and doing a research process project with the following research question:
"How do high school teachers create effective zine projects to help students of all learning abilities improve in their writing skills?"


If any of you have/know of someone who has/or know of resources where I can find information related to this question, please reply to me at the following email address- 


senorita.wing@gmail.com
Thanks in advance!
