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-

Thanks in advance!

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS! Paper Monster Press "Queer Punk Issue" (The Year-ender, Ear-banger Issue!)

You draw lines, shape boxes, and try to decide which ones fit you best. But have you ever stepped outside the line and think, how much further would you dare to go? People who are openly queer call this coming out of the closet. We close ourselves, cage our hearts, and throw away the key. For this issue, we are daring you to come out with us.

 

Once again, trust us with your submissions. We ask you to go over the boundaries of gender, race, norms, and clichés.

We want your roars for human dignity. Colors of explosions and madness, and words that ignite our passion for equality.

 

Give us your poetry, your essays, your stories, your art, and your music in their most rebellious forms. Color our worlds queer in the way punk personified anarchy.

 

Cross borderlines on tightropes. Shrug off oppression. Do away with social conventions. Put stereotypes aside forever, never again to be worn by anyone.

 

GENERAL GUIDELINES: 

  1. All works must be submitted to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com.
  2. Each contributor may submit 3 works ONLY from each category. That means you may submit 3 literary works, 3 artworks, and 3 musical pieces, but no more than that.
  3. The EIC’s laptop is Buddhist, so aside from attaching text submissions, kindly paste the contents of your piece(s) to the body of your e-mail.
  4. Submit literary pieces in English or Filipino. We do not have the capacity to read and/or translate foreign languages as well as local dialects at the moment. Works should not exceed 500 words.
  5. Submit artworks in JPEG format. We accept both colored and black or white art, but please be reminded that PMP will only have a colored cover, the rest of the zine will be in black and white.
  6. Submit sounds in MP3 format. Add a short description of each track in two to three sentences.
  7. If your piece is inspired by an artist/work, please indicate the artist/work from which your piece sprang from.
  8. PMP religiously follows the process of selecting and editing. We stand by our editors’ decisions.
  9. For updates, just check the Paper Monster Press Facebook page (www.facebook.com/papermonsterpress)

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: September 30, 2011


Now, there are no standards, no boundaries. We’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades.

Comment by Alex the Zine on August 27, 2011 at 2:23pm

Hello!  I just wanted to let people know about my new zine, Alex, which is generally themed around the issue "the lived experience of gender."  The first issue is free-form about any topic gender-related, while the second issue, which I just finished a few weeks ago, is about how people who wear bras feel about wearing them.  The zine sounds serious, but don't worry, there are jokes.

 

Totally open to trades.  Just write to me: alexgenderzine@gmail.com

 

Or, order a copy here:  http://alexgenderzine.wordpress.com/order-a-copy/

 

thanks!

Hi,

as you may or not know the library has an exhibition at Salford Art Gallery running from 15th October 2011 to 29th January 2012.


I am looking to show a film at the exhibition made up of short videos that contributers to the library have made of themselves. The video will explain why you personally self publish and about the zines you produce. To submit please email me your short talking head videos no longer than five minutes.

I will compile and edit these together and add captions for the finished film. All are welcome to contribute to this project and I would like an eclectic range of zine makers to participate covering all the genres etc. 


So wherever you are making your zines it would be great to hear from you.
To submit Zines the address is 48 LANDOS COURT,MANCHESTER,M40 7WT,UNITED KINGDOM

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #5 is now finished!

having worked at in a warehouse for the past month and a half, i’ve spent a lot of time within a “boys’ club” environment. daily struggles with hearing racist and sexist bullshit and making attempts to challenge the mindsets of those around me have left me defensive and drained. this zine, done in 24-ish hours for the dc zine fest, is about resisting militant masculinity on the job, learning how to more effectively call out shitty behavior, and how i have created a safer space for myself (and hopefully some others) at work. b&w, 1/4 size, 20 pages. includes original photography by yours truly! $1 or trade. if interested, please send me a message or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa(at)gmail(dot)com

looking for submissions for the queer feminist compilation zine, hoax, for its 6th issue: feminisms & communication!

potential ideas for material include, but are not limited to:

  • how  we utilize the various creative mediums to express ourselves: ie  art/music/playwriting/dance/zines etc.
  • language: terminology / identifications / labels / who is allowed to use certain terms / reclamation
  • media: various types / their historical & cultural relevancy / effectiveness for social change / the decline of print media / online activism & social justice movements
  • visibility: how we choose to communicate our identities (verbally and non verbally) / how different communication styles “out” us / secrecy / how we talk & to whom / where do you draw the line in sharing certain information (online, at yr job etc.)
  • non-verbal communication: how we “read” and then judge others / body politics & gendered expressions (“passing” and “body work”)
  • consent: expressed vs. body language / legacy of shitty health class information / talking about queer and/or non-normative sex
  • silence: when not to speak / boundaries
  • relationships: communicating different with various friends, partners, family members, strangers etc.
  • emotion: how it gets intertwined with communication & makes it more or less effective / intensity & whether it will hinder someone’s account as being believable (“too angry” “hysterical”) 
  • disagreements: how do and should we communicate our ideas to those who disagree with us? / “tone arguments” / should a person with a marginalized identity have to “play nice” when talking to somebody who has privilege over them? / “call outs” & accountability processes / expressing hate & anger
  • the self: self-care / where the self ends & community begins / expressing yr needs / creating & sustaining personal boundaries
  • accessibility: geographic accessibility / accessibility to language / pretension / the “academic industrial complex” 
  • networking: action / teamwork / friendships
  • space: physical / emotional 
  • legislation: policy / community organizing / the importance of local action

we also totally need lots of artwork (photos, collages, illustrations, drawings, paintings, comics, etc.)! particularly for background designs and things that compliment the written material.

please aim to submit yr amazing material to hoaxzine@gmail.com by october 1st, 2011. if you are interested, feel free to e-mail us yr ideas for topics & artwork!  while we are not totally inflexible with the submission date, we are also not in a position where we can continually push it back like we have with previous issues. the sooner you send us yr work, the better! people of all genders are welcome to submit!

also, we are still distributing back issues of hoax #2 (although we are almost out of our last print!) hoax #3hoax #4 hoax #5. please email us if you would like to obtain any of these issues!

it’s been nearly two and a half years since we first began working on hoax. neither of us can believe how much this project has expanded since then! thank you so much to every contributor, reader, & supporter of this zine!

we are looking forward to seeing yr work!

in solidarity,
sari & rachel

my new perzine, reimagining queer community, is finished!

reimagining queer community is a personal investigation into my evolving relationship to queerness, as well as some of the ways in which i navigate queer spaces around me. some of the topics in this zine include: alienation and estrangement from the queer community, what it means to feel connected, the myth of a cohesive queer community, being a spectator versus being a participant, (personal and shared) queer histories, and potential strategies to build new alliances.  

this was my first attempt at making a twenty four hour zine (it wound up taking three days due to work/life interruptions, but who’s counting?) it is 20 pages, 1/4 sized and text heavy. i am asking for $1 or a trade. if you are interested, please email uniunverse@gmail.com.
