Hi,
I am collecting submissions for a zine written about and for people who hear voices.  Hearing voices is a more common experience than most people realise, and one that is detrimentally linked to mental health problems and to a negative, stereotyped view of people with mental health problems.  It has been argued that hearing voices is part of the human experience, and can be documented from the very beginning of our historical records.  I am open to any kind of submissions about the experience of hearing voices - whether your story is about yourself, about living with or caring for someone who hears voices (with their permission and/or appropriate annonymisation), about being diagnosed due to hearing voices, about positve or negative experiences of hearing voices, about one-off or ongoing experiences of hearing voices, about experiences of being labelled due to hearing voices.  Both personal and technical/academic writing is welcome in any format from prose to poetry and beyond.  Artwork is welcome.  Any submissions or questions about the project can be emailed to gadfi_um AT yahoo dot co dot uk
Thanks!

Hi Zinesters!
My name's Dawn. I am a former NYC public high school ESL teacher who taught zine-making to my students. Now, I'm in library school studying to become a community college/academic librarian, hopefully. 


Anyway, I am currently in an information literacy pedagogy course, and doing a research process project with the following research question:
"How do high school teachers create effective zine projects to help students of all learning abilities improve in their writing skills?"


If any of you have/know of someone who has/or know of resources where I can find information related to this question, please reply to me at the following email address- 


senorita.wing@gmail.com
Thanks in advance!

I have a new mental health zine functionally ill 10 available for trade.  It's about using the word crazy, what mad love means to me, how my crazy manifests, and how I feel about my best friend Arrow's self-harm.  Please message me here or at robotmad (gmail) to arrange a trade, and thanks.  You can also message me for info about backissues.

I'm pulling together a collective of creative work by women around the world into a series of zines called Dainty As Fuck. I am asking you all very politely to submit creative material of any kind, be it poetry, short story (fiction or non-fiction), photography, drawings, or whatever else tickles your fancy. The deadline for all material will be the 1st of December 2011, so you have plenty of time to get your stuff to me. The aim is to have the first of the zines published by the 1st of January 2012, and will be available at Sticky in Melbourne CBD. If you do not live in the Melbourne area or wish to have an electronic copy sent to you, don't hestitate to email me.

Please email your submissions and/or any questions to fkyeahactivism@yahoo.com by the 1st of December 2011. I would greatly appreciate your input :)

**Make sure you type "zine" or "dainty as fuck" or something along those lines in the subject line of your email or it will be deleted.**

Please invite your FEMALE friends. Submissions can be of any genre, it's completely up to you (checkout the Facebook page
http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=121957441218810 )

Any submissions that don't make it into the first edition, will be published in subsequent editions. Please include your name exactly as you want it to appear on each submission, even if it's just anonymous.

 

Many thanks in advance :)

Fresh off the press: It's FruitYoga!

It's 20 pages of the total fun with fruits demonstrating yoga asanas or poses.
All illustrations were done by moi, in watercolor, with English and Sanskrit yoga asana terms.
Pages/cover were hand-sewn together.


Used some of these images to teach yoga to my ESL students! Great for language learning and calming the mind!

 

Been doing yoga for 3 years. Changed my perspective, life and overall well-being! And it's fun too :)


Limited edition of 50 copies.

See more images and order now on my Etsy!

 

Namaste!

Not Lonely #5 

A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages, pretty text-heavy


The latest issue of my perzine focuses on the history of my relationship with the internet (including my first experiences of using it in a small-town library, its role in facilitating my partner and I getting together & why I no longer use livejournal or facebook); and my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (including a breakdown of its definition, my own experience of its symptoms and a reflection on its validity - or otherwise - as a diagnosis). There are also handwritten intro and outros, a "guess the lyrics" quiz and some yummy winter soup recipes (suitable for vegans). It's partly typewritten, partly handwritten and was made cut and paste style.

 

Please visit this post on my blog for information on how to get a copy.

Dunno if anyone's interested, but I have a 'zine that features anonymous performance evals from a state psychiatric hospital from the 1920s-60s.  If that's up your alley, message me!
