Trans/Genderqueer Zine Project Call For Submissions

 

Topic: Essays, anecdotes, comix, collage, & poetry from trans and genderqueer folks telling stories of adolescence and puberty. Take that as broadly or narrowly as you'd like; literally how your body was changing and how your brain was dealing with it, or going to a dance and how that made you feel, to coming out to your family, friends, teachers & classmates.

 

Audience: 7-12th grade students.

 

Specifics: The pieces should be free of cursing and super overt sexual content.

 

Why/Purpose: Puberty and adolescence are hard for everyone but it's extra alienating and difficult when you feel alone and or radically different from everyone else. I want this zine to be an offering to trans and gender queer kids who need to see themselves in print, to know that they are not alone. I want the stories to offer comfort and hope to some young people who may be struggling. I would like the zine to be a resource for trans and gender queer students and a way to open the eyes and hearts of cisgendered students, parents, and teachers.

The Filth is seeking questions for our new column, Ask the Doctor! We're starting this new feature in our sex toys issue, but questions do not need to be of a sexual nature - but it's more fun if they are.

We are also looking for short stories and art about sex toys. Fiction or non, whatever. Anonymous is fine.

Check us out on Facebook, or send submissions/questions to thefilthsubmissions@gmail.com

I have been making fanzines since I was 15 which is over half of my life ago! I have just turned thirty one and have made my 21st issue of my horror fanzine Necronomicon. You can find all the issues to buy at my new website at necronomiconfanzine.com

My latest Ken Chronicles (#22) is finished and available for $2 (to USA) or fair trade. It's 24 digest-sized pages & contains a long travel story to the western US, as well as book, music & concert reviews, and lots of photos. I prefer perzines of any kind, travel and non-fiction. No offense, but I'm really not into SF, political, or entire works of fiction. Let me know what you've got.

I have 50 and still make and read...

I turn 40 this year, and only got into zines in my early 30s. So far, I've just been buying/reading zines for the most part, but I have a few ideas, so who knows? Maybe I'll end up printing a few myself. :)

Hi, I just finished my first sort-of travelogue zine called Willkommen. And I would like to give it away to someone as a gift. If you're interested, send me a message with your address and I'll mail it to you, for free. Thanks!
