Call for Submissions - Violence in Our Own Communities

I’m working on a zine about addressing violence and abuse within our own communities. Here’s all the info:

I am specifically looking for submissions from people who consider themselves part of punk/hardcore, activist, and/or radical communities. These “communities” may or may not be tied to specific geographic locations. I am thinking broadly when I say “violence and abuse” as possibly including emotional, physical, sexual, and/or intimate partner violence and abuse, as well as violence that is based around race, ability, class, gender, sexuality, or other factors. “Addressing” this violence might include prevention, intervention, and/or responses after the fact.

That being said, the questions are up to your own interpretation. You are invited to write as little or as much as you’d like to any or all of the questions, and to focus on a single community or whatever seems most important to you. Please think of them more as prompts and don’t feel limited to “just” answering the questions.

So here are the prompts:

- Please give some background information about yourself and the communities you consider yourself to be a part of.

- What do you believe is the responsibility of your communities to address violence and abuse within them?

- How have you seen violence and abuse actually addressed within your own communities?

- How would you like to see your communities address violence and abuse within them?

- In what ways have your communities been successful in addressing violence and abuse within them?

Please let me know if/how you’d like your name included in the zine along with any contact info you’d like shared so others can reach you directly.

I’m also going to try something a little different with this. If you have contributed to the zine by Sunday, Nov. 24th, you will be able to read all of the other submissions received by then and invited to share any other thoughts/responses. I will also group submissions by location (if mentioned) to hopefully make it easier to connect to people closer to you.

You can send submissions to me at zilla@staykind.com. Please get in touch with any questions and pass this on to anyone else you know who may be interested.

Thanks so much!

after over a year in the making, this zine is finally finished!

Thou Shalt Not Talk About The White Boys’ Club: Challenging The Unwritten Rules of Punk [click for excerpts]

Touted as being a home for society’s rejects, outcasts, and ‘alternative’ political stances, punk unfortunately often ends up reinforcing oppressive mindsets and ideals by setting up numerous unwritten rules for dress, behavior, personal choices, identifications, and so much more. This zine, written by sari of Hoax and You’ve Got a Friend in Pennsylvania, aims to direct conscious attention to the nuances of being a marginalized person, namely a Gender and Sexuality Minority (GSM), in the punk community. Includes questions intended to incite dialogue among readers and their friends as well as a short list of recommended resources concerning marginalized experiences in punk. B&W, 34 pages, & text heavy. US$2.50. [etsy / well-hidden cash or trades

I just finished putting together a zine that was two years(!) in the making:

Nashville Transit is about riding public transit during the early months of my transition. I basically journal-ed my experiences with street harassment and then typed them out, with very little edits/commentary. I also talk about the importance of public space and who has power in public spaces. 1/2 size zine with cardstock cover, cut and paste style, mostly text. Please get at me if you'd like to trade or wholesale: nervous.nelly.records@gmail.com or http://nervousnelly.storenvy.com/products/638932-nashville-transit-...

Hey everyone!

This is a call for submissions to the 3rd issue of Basements and Living Rooms: a zine about diy music and house shows.

The subtopic for this issue is feminist, queer, trans, and poc experiences in DIY and punk. examples that I think about...feeling marginalized or oppressed, lack of privilege, checking the privilege that you do have, standing up for yourself in the punk scene, not being (or being for that matter) a straight white cis male, consent, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism, etc..
The subtopic is not mandatory, just an encouraged suggestion. You can submit anything on the topic of house shows or diy music.

Deadline: October 1st

The zine will be published in the fall and released on November 3rd 2012 at Milwaukee Zine Fest!

I'll put almost anything in the zine including stories, photographs, comics, artwork, essays, flyers, journal entries, poetry, etc.

You will receive a free copy of the zine. The covers for the first run will be hand printed (probably screenprinted).

Send things to :
2566 North Booth Street
Milwaukee, WI 53212
