NEW DISTRO: currently accepting zines for consideration!

Looking for zines about mental health, depression, bipolar disorder, self-injury, and others. They can be perzines or guides/resources zines on how to deal with mental health issues. You can check all the zine topics & other details here.
Message me if you're interested! Other foreign languages (Spanish, French, Portuguese) zines may apply!

Or check my blog post for all the info!
Thanks for reading :-)

hey y'all, i'm tossing around the idea of compiling a zine about girl fights and girl hate; whether is be stories about things you have done or things that have been done to you, general musings on the topic, how infighting between girls can be stopped or how girls can come together and appreciate one another, i'd love for you to be a part of this project!

please e-mail me or leave me a comment if you are interested or have questions! deadline is APRIL 30, 2010!

Hi all,
I recently finished issue #1 of my perzine, Not Lonely. It's 40 A6 (quarter size) pages and has a a mental health emphasis - ramblings about the medications I have taken and why I've decided not to take them any longer, what it feels like to have lived in 5 different places by the age of 25, how I always procrastinate instead of getting work done, how I never seem to say the right thing and a few other wee rants and thoughts.

More info on my page if you're interested in getting hold of a copy (& I hope you will be).

(shamelessly x-posted)

I'm planning to open a distro early March and I am looking for submissions to build the catalogue. I am interested in thoughtfully made and thought-provoking zines, and mental health and self identity are themes that i am very interested in. you can visit the website and view the distro faqs. you can also email me at i_reply@live.com for submissions and other questions.

I have two new issues of my zine, Telegram Ma'am out now.

Issue 19 is the winter survival issue. I made it for those of us who have depression year-round and find Winter especially difficult. This issue of Telegram Ma'am is quarter-sized, 16 pages, and has twenty-seven tips and projects to help you survive the winter. Some winter survival tips include things like knitting your own scarf, getting off the internet, taking evening walks, keeping in touch with your friends via snail mail, setting daily or weekly goals, etc...

I also made a split with Tukru's zine, Your Pretty Face Is Going Straight to Hell!

Telegram Ma'am #18 is a love letter to my bike, a beautiful vintage cruiser. There are notes on anxiety and depression as well, being a weird girl in a small town, going to zine gatherings, and adventures with my local friends. I write about learning how to ride my bike again after the snow melted, late-night bike rides, hanging out at the library, and challenging myself to communicate more assertively.

Your Pretty Face Is Going Straight to Hell #9 is about long-distance friendship and meeting people over the internet in real life, loneliness, and a desire to make more friends or have better relationships with her current friends. Tukru writes about spending time with her family, turning twenty-seven and feeling like an emotional mess on birthdays, playing with her new Blythe doll, and mental health.

Quarter-sized, 72 pages (each half is 36 pages; flip one zine over and read the other!)

My zines are available here: schoolformaps.etsy.com.

Or you can snail mail well-concealed Canadian or U.S. cash to:

Maranda Elizabeth
19 Water Street
Lindsay, Ontario
K9V 2C9 Canada

*SELECTED TRADES ONLY* (For the split zine) Because this zine is super thick, because it costs more to print and costs more to send, etc.
