I made a facebook page for something I want grrrls to contribute to, and hopefully encourage more people to make riot grrrl zines or other forms of media from. Ideally people can email things they'd like to share, art, music, writing whatever and it will get posted on the page for inspiring this. If anyone is interested in helping me with this project that'd be great too. Also I'm planning on working on a zine with my friends called "recipe for a riot: a riot grrrl revival zine" and would like to get other people's art and writings in that too. https://www.facebook.com/RiotGrrrlRevival

Hi. I write Cadillac Girl, a perzine that I started in 2004. After being on a 6 year break, I'm starting it back up again. Issue three is in process and it's about how times have changed since the last time I published CG; graduating college, becoming a mother and a wife, and finding myself again. My zine included art work and writing from outside contributers/fans/readers lol. Feel free to contact me to contribute, trade or request copies.  Check out the web page http://cadillacgirlzine.webs.com  Thanx!

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.

 

Send submissions to Brilliantmistake01@gmail.com

Please send as a basic word document with "Zine Submission" in the subject line. Art submissions should be 300 dpi scans or for bitmap line art 600 or more.

 

Send submissions by June 1, 2011. Feel free to e-mail me at Brilliantmistake01@gmail.com with any questions.

 

Thanks!

Carrie

i'll be moving to nyc, by next year. meanwhile, i figure i can write to people, like form a tight pen-pal relationships, with those who already live there? good idea, no? i hope whatever. i like writing, shit-cartooning, generally just making things, music, and drinking. (beer, milkshakes, chocolate milk, 40oz.s etc.)
