The first issue of my zine The Woman Question is currently on sale at Bluestockings, OR I can mail you a copy! The zine is about applying feminist theory to history, the media, and beauty ideals. The issue talks about the flaws of TV shows Girls/ Sex and the City, beauty ideals within certain minority communities and how they intersect, how to cope with body image issues as a feminist, how intersectionality is the coolest thing ever, how Frida Kahlo is a feminist and womanist, and much much more! Email me at glika074@newschool.edu if you want to trade zines or want a free copy sent to you!

Oh hi there!

I'm just putting the finishing touches on my first ever zine! Seeing as it's my first, it's not exactly a fine work of art, but it is pretty text-heavy and I think a pretty good read. 

It's a compilation of diary entries of mine from a recent volunteer trip to Kenya. I critique the role of foreign aid and offer insights into how applicable - or not - feminism is in the developing world. Also I drink cow blood. 

I would love to trade zines. Anyone interested?

I wanted to promote my fanzine so I recently made a tumblr for it but I'm having a hard time finding any zine tumblrs. Does anybody have a feminist tumblr or a zine tumblr or know anyone that does? If so, message me and let me know or just comment back on here. If you have one you should follow me http://muchachafanzine.tumblr.com/ and I swear I'll follow you back! =)

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!!

the theme is pathology, inspired both by my job in a hospital and a giant pathology textbook i couldn't resist buying.  pathology can refer to the study of disease, viruses and bacteria, cancers and infections--but it can also evoke 'normal' or 'typical' reactions or expressions taken to an extreme ('pathological gambling', etc.). 

of course, this definition of what is pathological requires a set standard of what is normal, which varies from community to community--and i would guess many of us don't live up to.  the interesting thing to me is the difference between the definition and how we live our lives. 

thoughts of possible topics that most immediately come to mind:
* disability / ableism / accessibility
* mental illness / intellectual disability / psychotropic medications / alternative treatments
* non-monogamy / choosing to be single / not getting married / getting married
* sexuality / asexuality / kinks / etc
* pop culture / the love of glitter / the love of tattered black t-shirts
* healing / health / the medical system
* the overlap and dischord between different communities / scenes / cliques
* political & community organizing: how it works, how it fails us
* the list could go on and on....

i am looking for writing and art that is easily photocopied in a half-page format (8.5 by 11, folded so the 8.5 ends touch each other).  i'm open to different mediums and formats, although any terrible poetry will be immediately recycled.  i'm also open to varying genres: funny, sad, personal, fictional, etc.... my last compilation zine had poetry, a recipe, memoir, and lists, and i'm hoping to replicate the same eclectic format. 

also, i hope to reprise the "things i love that i shouldn't" and "things i should love that i don't" lists from whatever saves #1, so please send me your thoughts on that as well. 

contributions can be sent to:
megan
po box 22761
seattle, wa 98122

or
whateversaves@gmail.com

deadline is july 1st.

please include contact information so i can send you a copy of the zine(s)

can't wait to see what y'all come up with.
