We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

What are your favourite feminist zines around at the moment? They can be explicitly feminist, written by feminists, anything.. I want to read some new ones, so recommendations please.

Culture Slut is my hands-down fave. Go Amber!
against the flood is a mental health zine written by a feminist and I love the way she writes about mental illness.
three cheers for "culture slut"!
i just read hannah neurotica's "toxic shock girldom" and that had some stuff in it that made me think a little differently about some topics (mainly porn and feminism.) also, i dunno if everyone else would consider "doris" a feminist zine, but i think so. the doris anthology gets me thinking every time i read it.
I've read the first issue and really liked it, but still have yet to read the second, which I'm looking forward to. Do you know of any other feminist mental health zines? I also love Telegraph Ma'am and Ciara Xyerra's zines which also talk about those kind of issues.

Culture Slut is awesome! Amber is so prolific, the quality of the work she produces in such a short space of time (there always seems to be a new issue out!) is inspiring.

Culture Slut! Written by my sister.

(Mine is Telegram Ma'am, by the way.)
I love both of your zines :)

Yeah, I totally consider a zine to be feminist if I can finish reading it feeling really pumped up and tough about being a lady...which is my feeling at the end of each issue of Doris.

Same sort of thing applies to Invincible Summer--not always explicitly feminist, but if I can feel that happy & psyched about everything while still living in a really patriarchal world, she's saying something right.

I'm still working on Beyond Gallery Walls & Dead White Men, a collection of photos of and interviews with women who identify as anarcha-feminists. It's a nice assortment of persepectives, and always rad to see what projects other folks are organizing.

..Also, Bri, I was going to mention Doris. I definitely consider it a feminist zine, not just because of the issues Cindy discusses but mostly because of the validation she offers for the everyday experiences of women, no matter how big or small. I find Doris extremely empowering and comforting.
i LOVE Doctrinal Expletives, but I've never heard of Sassyfrass Circus or An Undead Persona, I look out for them :)

I write Culture Slut. Thank you for all the lovely things you ladies said, it's stuff like this that keeps me going.
I read a lot of zines, but I definitely like to focus on stuff written by feminists. I'm really into Doctrinal Expletives, Sassyfrass Circus, Doris, An Undead Persona, Not Sorry and Brainscan.
