Have always made fanzines about things Im fans of! Bands and now horror films. I used to love the music ones my friends produced in the 90s: The Exclusive, Organ, Gumdrops and Saturdays (Tori Amos)...so many that I have forgotten the name of! I always have used the cut and paste a5 black and white, I find it so great to put together and it looks great. I use magazines as background to stick writing onto.

Self promo, my horror film zine is out now ;) http://www.etsy.com/listing/76510221/necronomicon-22-uk-horror-fanz...

ONE LAST RALLYING CRY FOR QUEER PUNK: DEADLINE EXTENDED (OCTOBER 31, 2011)

 

You draw lines and you draw lines, and then you shape boxes and boxes and try to decide which ones fit you best. But have you ever stepped outside the line, and think, coming this far, how much farther would you dare? That’s why, people who are openly queer call this term coming out of the closet. Because we close ourselves, and cage our hearts, and throw away the key. This issue, we dare you to come out with us. Cross those lines on tightropes, shrug off gender boundaries, do away with stereotypes. We are who we are, and if we know this then labels don’t matter at all. Because we’ve got to honour the differences, or what’s the same wouldn’t count.

 

And who could be more queer, or more punk than us? We ask you once again to trust us with your submissions. We ask you to explore the boundaries of gender, race, stereotypes, rebellion, and anarchy. We ask you to give us your poetry, your art, and your music, in its most rebellious, most queer punk. Mainstream or underground, gay or lesbian, hardcore or soft porn, and hey, even alpha males are welcome. We want you to colour our worlds queer(punk). Now there are no rules, no boundaries, we’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades (Spandau Ballet).

 

We are interested in works that question, that reveal, that critique, that ask, that makes us curious. We want to see colors, and explosions, and madness, we want works that ignite our passion for equality and justice. We want works that ask for human dignity for all. We want works that make us want to shrug off oppression, and put it aside to forever after never be worn by anyone again. Because Who in the New World does not have a horror of the past, whether his ancestor was torturer or victim? Who in the depth of conscience, is not silently screaming for pardon or revenge? The pulse of New World history is the racing pulse beat of fear, the tiring cycles of stupidity and greed (Derek Walcott). And it need be that no longer. In the dawn of the New Age, we ask you to join us to fight for human dignity for all. Gay or lesbian, man or woman, colored or white; all different, all beautiful. And in this great future, you can forget your past, so dry your tears, I say (Bob Marley).

 

BY GENRE:

 

  1. Literary (English/ Filipino). 500 words or less.
  2. Visual Art (colored/ black and white). JPEG Format.
  3. Music. MP3 format.

 

Send everything to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com until October 31, 2011. Thank you and support the small press!

See a picture of the mini zine under photos on my profile.

I write a horror fanzine in the UK called Necronomicon which mainly focuses on reviews of retro horror films, especially b movies of the 80's. Its upto issue 18 now and available here:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/NecroNeil

I have always done fanzines about things I am passionate about, like bands and films, theres always something a little personal in there but I like being informative and letting people know about rare finds, passing film recommendations on etc
