Hi,

as you may or not know the library has an exhibition at Salford Art Gallery running from 15th October 2011 to 29th January 2012.


I am looking to show a film at the exhibition made up of short videos that contributers to the library have made of themselves. The video will explain why you personally self publish and about the zines you produce. To submit please email me your short talking head videos no longer than five minutes. I will compile and edit these together and add captions for the finished film. All are welcome to contribute to this project and I would like an eclectic range of zine makers to participate covering all the genres etc. 


So wherever you are making your zines it would be great to hear from you.
To submit Zines the address is:

48 LANDOS COURT

MANCHESTER

M40 7WT

UNITED KINGDOM

 

Kind regards


Craig

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #5 is now finished!

having worked at in a warehouse for the past month and a half, i’ve spent a lot of time within a “boys’ club” environment. daily struggles with hearing racist and sexist bullshit and making attempts to challenge the mindsets of those around me have left me defensive and drained. this zine, done in 24-ish hours for the dc zine fest, is about resisting militant masculinity on the job, learning how to more effectively call out shitty behavior, and how i have created a safer space for myself (and hopefully some others) at work. b&w, 1/4 size, 20 pages. includes original photography by yours truly! $1 or trade. if interested, please send me a message or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa(at)gmail(dot)com

looking for submissions for the queer feminist compilation zine, hoax, for its 6th issue: feminisms & communication!

potential ideas for material include, but are not limited to:

  • how  we utilize the various creative mediums to express ourselves: ie  art/music/playwriting/dance/zines etc.
  • language: terminology / identifications / labels / who is allowed to use certain terms / reclamation
  • media: various types / their historical & cultural relevancy / effectiveness for social change / the decline of print media / online activism & social justice movements
  • visibility: how we choose to communicate our identities (verbally and non verbally) / how different communication styles “out” us / secrecy / how we talk & to whom / where do you draw the line in sharing certain information (online, at yr job etc.)
  • non-verbal communication: how we “read” and then judge others / body politics & gendered expressions (“passing” and “body work”)
  • consent: expressed vs. body language / legacy of shitty health class information / talking about queer and/or non-normative sex
  • silence: when not to speak / boundaries
  • relationships: communicating different with various friends, partners, family members, strangers etc.
  • emotion: how it gets intertwined with communication & makes it more or less effective / intensity & whether it will hinder someone’s account as being believable (“too angry” “hysterical”) 
  • disagreements: how do and should we communicate our ideas to those who disagree with us? / “tone arguments” / should a person with a marginalized identity have to “play nice” when talking to somebody who has privilege over them? / “call outs” & accountability processes / expressing hate & anger
  • the self: self-care / where the self ends & community begins / expressing yr needs / creating & sustaining personal boundaries
  • accessibility: geographic accessibility / accessibility to language / pretension / the “academic industrial complex” 
  • networking: action / teamwork / friendships
  • space: physical / emotional 
  • legislation: policy / community organizing / the importance of local action

we also totally need lots of artwork (photos, collages, illustrations, drawings, paintings, comics, etc.)! particularly for background designs and things that compliment the written material.

please aim to submit yr amazing material to hoaxzine@gmail.com by october 1st, 2011. if you are interested, feel free to e-mail us yr ideas for topics & artwork!  while we are not totally inflexible with the submission date, we are also not in a position where we can continually push it back like we have with previous issues. the sooner you send us yr work, the better! people of all genders are welcome to submit!

also, we are still distributing back issues of hoax #2 (although we are almost out of our last print!) hoax #3hoax #4 hoax #5. please email us if you would like to obtain any of these issues!

it’s been nearly two and a half years since we first began working on hoax. neither of us can believe how much this project has expanded since then! thank you so much to every contributor, reader, & supporter of this zine!

we are looking forward to seeing yr work!

in solidarity,
sari & rachel

my new perzine, reimagining queer community, is finished!

reimagining queer community is a personal investigation into my evolving relationship to queerness, as well as some of the ways in which i navigate queer spaces around me. some of the topics in this zine include: alienation and estrangement from the queer community, what it means to feel connected, the myth of a cohesive queer community, being a spectator versus being a participant, (personal and shared) queer histories, and potential strategies to build new alliances.  

this was my first attempt at making a twenty four hour zine (it wound up taking three days due to work/life interruptions, but who’s counting?) it is 20 pages, 1/4 sized and text heavy. i am asking for $1 or a trade. if you are interested, please email uniunverse@gmail.com.

'Shape & Situate: Posters of Inspirational European Women' is a zine of posters made by artists and DIY creative folk within Europe, each poster highlighting the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past, the present, and to help us to make sure that there will be a future which contains such creative and pioneering female action and activity. The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire in the present and to visually bring women’s social and political history to life.

Posters by: Erica Smith, Rachael House, Melanie Maddison, Michelle Mendonca, Anna Knowles, Verity Hall, Kathryn Taylor, Nina Nijsten, Peter Willis, Emily Aoibheann, Ed Webb-Ingall, Cara Corden, Patrick Staff, R Clout, Kathleen Teadrinker, Marylou Anderson, Flo Brooks, Charlotte Cooper, Cendrine Rovini, Gladys Badhands, James Clayton, and John Davison.
