Looking for submissions on how you were exposed to riot grrrl culture or feminism in general and how it affected your life. Any type of expression is great, including narrative, poetry, visual art, whatever... send to wnnbaker@gmail.com whenever convenient. Thanks! :)

This is the first issue of my new perzine, Buy Her Candy. It's about adventures, civil partnerships and hairy ladies. 24 pages, quarter size.

Available from my etsy shop or get in touch for trades.

Hi folks, I'm working on a project that explores Riot Grrrls who were not (are not) musicians. I'm looking for zines from non-musician Riot Grrrls and would like to eventually interview women in the Riot Grrrl movement (both at it's inception as well as present-day) who got involved as feminists, activist, and/or writers but not musicians. If this is you, or if you have suggestions on good former or present Riot Grrrls to talk with who fit this description, can you shoot me a message or post something here? If you have any questions about the project, just ask. Thanks!

Hi,

I am working at a zine library this summer & am organising our 24 Hour Zine Challenge in August.  I want to screen a zine-related film/documentary.  I was hoping for some suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Catherine, I am dying to read what you wrote about thealogy, but I am also afraid the zine won't arrive again if I buy it... :-(

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

Here. In My Head. #9, a feminist perzine from the UK, now for sale!

Inside, I write about technology, thealogy (goddess worship), common anti-feminist arguments, and being a graduate. There’s also some lists and similarly fluffy little things scattered throughout. Black and white, with a hand-coloured front cover.
Want to buy a copy from me? Just Paypal £1.00 to blatant_blitheAThotmail.co.uk, and I’ll send the zine out to you the next day, with no delivery charge. If you would like me to include one of my free minizines, Twt, just leave me a note when you send me the money and I’ll put it in for you. Don’t forget, you can read more about my zines on my zinewiki page - http://zinewiki.com/Catherine_Elms.
