My perzine 'Fixing A Hole' issue 2, the 'Edelweiss' edition, is available for free! In this new issue: 'From Anxiety To Zen', zen meditation as a tool against anxiety disorder (not); a review of Jett Rebel's 'Truck', his stunning latest album, and four, five more or less literary pieces on codependency. Please contact me to get your fresh copy!

Hi! NeuroZine is putting out the call for submissions. NeuroZine deals with the day to day lives of people living with mental health issues. Our debut issue focuses on the role of mental health in the workplace, both how a workplace is different for a person with mental health issues and what changes can be made to make it more accessible.

We'll be accepting submissions until April 2nd 2016 and until May 1st for a possible expanded issue. Check out our page for more details. Thanks!

-Nicole, Elliott, and Jeff

Hello My Name is a positive take on what some believe is a gloomy topic. Stories on what it is like to strive and be alive while battling demons we cannot often speak about. Over a dozen mini stories that will have you rooting for the human race again!

Hello,

 

I am doing a study on zine libraries and am conducting a survey to assess zine writers’ comfort levels with having their zines collected and circulated in zine libraries and archives in the US. I am both a librarian and a zine writer, and I believe it’s important for zine librarians to have a sense of how the zine community feels about having their works in zine libraries, and what (if any) factors might increase or decrease comfort levels. The survey is completely anonymous and will not collect any identifying information about participants. Ultimately, the results of the survey may be presented at an academic conference to librarians, and/or published in an academic journal.

 

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

 

Here is the link to the survey:

(And also, you can look me up in We Make Zines; I create Alex the Zine.)

 

Thank you,

 

Anne Hays,

Call for Submissions!

All in Your Head is a queer/feminist traditional cut-and-paste style zine with a focus on LGBTQIA neurodivergent and disabled activists, zinesters, artists, and authors. Our zine operates on the following *principles: 1.) social inequality and injustice exists [racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, cissexism to name a few]; 2.) disability, neurodiversity can be understood as a viable form of human difference that intersects with/is shaped by systems of dominance; 3.) claims that there is a “normal” bodymind can have damaging and harmful effects (physically/emotionally/spiritually) and are partly shaped by current social/cultural values and white western colonial histories; 4.) neuroatypical people and people with disabilities must navigate cultural taboos, move among complex institutions and systems of care and negotiate conflicting ideas of “wellness/illness,“ “silence/disclosure,” “visibility/invisibility;” “dis/ability” and more  5.) most importantly, our stories matter. 
(*this list is by no means exhaustive)

For the 2016 Spring edition of All in Your Head, we invite you to share first person narratives, essays, rants, poems, doodles, paintings/drawings, photography, collages, book/film/art reviews (and more!) that address the theme: “(a)sexuality, intimacy, and identity.” We are seeking pieces that explore (a)sexuality, intimacy, and identity as they relate to disabled bodyminds and ways that queer neurodivergent, disabled folks encounter and resist cultural stigma and self-authorize our existence.Please note that we choose use the term “(a)sexuality” in the title in an effort to de-center compulsory (hetero)sexuality in our work. We strive to create inclusive communities and expand our coalitional possibilities. 

For issue #3, we are seeking topics that address the follow themes:

§ Compuslory (hetero)sexuality and disability;
§ Reflections on the hypersexualization of POC bodies, the desexualization and infantalization of disabled bodyminds, and/or their interconnections;
§ Ace /aro identities, compulsory (hetero)sexuality, mental health; medicalization/pathologization of aro/ace experience and disability/chronic illness;
§ Disability and romantic, sexual, care giving; and/or platonic relationships;
§ Consent and disability;
§ Sexual expression, sexual identity and visibility as neuroqueer, chronically ill and/or disabled queer people;
§ Non-monogamy, disability, chronic illness, and neurodivergence;
§ Kink and leather explorations of sex and disability;
§ (A)sexuality, advocacy, and activism;
§ (A)sexualities, art, and self-expression;
§ (A)sexualities, disability, bodily autonomy, and the medical industrial complex;
§  Have an idea not listed here? Submit anyway!

It is a myth that you must be a “good writer” or “good artist” to submit to a zine. We welcome many kinds of writing and artwork!! Send your submissions to allinyourheadzine@gmail.com before March 30th, 2016. Please send your submissions via email. For written submissions, please use Microsoft word and submit your writing in .doc or .docx format. (Please try to limit submissions to 2500 words. We are flexible. Let us know if you need a little extra space.) For artwork, please attach high resolution .jpg images to your email. All contributors will receive a free copy!

My latest zine, a collaboration with Paul of Par La Fenêtre, is called Obsessive Thoughts/Lies - it's about OCD and autism, and it can be found in the zine section of my Folksy shop. It's 16 pages, A6, in colour, and £1.50.
