Kerouac-inspired independent Mag looking for frank writers on the theme of 'Freedom'

Kerouac’s Dog Magazine ® is a brand-spanking new, independently published quarterly magazine set to form a bold and exciting creative platform for new writing, design, photography, fashion and plenty more. It’s inspired by Jack Kerouac and the 1960s Beat generation and in honour of these, will eagerly exhibit the newest and bravest work and folios, from creatives all over the world. All tied up with key themes of freedom; truth; beauty; love; travel; wanderlust; sex; taboo; and fringe. The whole thing will be beautifully designed and printed top-to-bottom in black and white (because we have a passion for all things black and white).

Issue 1 needs you – The very first Issue. ‘Freedom’ will be released as a limited print-run later in the year, and available to buy online, to a global audience. So we’re calling on creatives for submissions on this theme and this theme only. As the whole thing is in black and white, the only stipulation is that the stuff you send needs to be in – or look gorgeous in - monochrome. It can be old work, or new work, we don’t mind. We won’t be able to pay you, but we’re happy to put names and URLs with each submission used so please send these through, along with your work.

I have finished the new issue of Not Lonely!

A6 (1/4 size), 28 pages.

Issue 2 is mostly about saying no to things most people say yes to. There are articles on the drinking scene and why I don't go to pubs/clubs and the personal and political reasons why my partner and I decided not to get married; as well a discussion of the ways I manage my mental health without medication and a nerdy article on my method of "getting into" new albums.

Please see my profile for details of how to get a copy.

Hey everyone! Fluxxii is a mental health-oriented site looking for zine submissions. We're looking for zines having to do with mental health, which is a very broad topic that encompasses just about anything! :) Zines will be on consignment (sorry!! but it just works better with our system) and all shipping costs will be covered. Check out the site at fluxxii.com or view the consignment information page!

I'm primarily looking for perzines and zines dealing with depression, art as a form of therapy, mental health and illnesses, struggles, advice, experiences, and moooore. Get in touch!

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).
