Hey! Hot Trash Zine is a Bay Area feminist art and music zine. We provide an OPEN space for anyone and everyone to be an artist, a writer, a poet, and an activist. We take open submissions, so send your art and writings to hottrashzine@mail.com. No entries will be turned away for extreme vulgarity or obscenity, so be as nasty, as dirty, and as trashy as you want. 
This is free speech, baby.

Seeking Real Queer Sex stories

I am launching a new zine project in which I will illustrate true stories of queer sex. (I am using the broad definition of queer as non-hetronomative and/or non-binary)

My ethos of inclusivity, sensitivity and honesty will be applied to Real Queer Sex, I want to represent the range of forms queer sex can take and the range of people who engage in it of every age, gender identity, sexuality, shape, size, race…

No story is too short or long to share, or too “vanilla” or kinky…

Thank you!

If you would like to submit a story please go to www.realqueersex.tumblr.com

If you would like to find out more about me www.theoysterknife.co.uk

By submitting your story you agree that it might be quoted, illustrated and published in my book titled “Real Queer Sex”.

Hi Folks. I'm hoping that there are female punk zinesters in this group who would be willing to complete the following survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Wn0rzIrS9_EHP9lpess5MV1chzog3ZCHVu.... The survey is looking at the impact of reading and writing zines on punk. Thanks in advance and please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Folks, I'm working on a book project looking at Riot Grrrl zine writers. I'm looking to interview people who identified (or still identify) as Riot Grrrl. In particular, I'm interested in non-musicians who were writing zines and were active Riot Grrrls. I want to interview (and read zines and other writing from) participants who shaped Riot Grrrl through writing about it. I'm looking for individuals who would be willing to talk about how being a RG and writing a zine has (or has not) influenced who they are as writers/feminists/activists today. If you'r identify as Riot Grrrl and are interested in talking with me, or want to know more about my project, you can email me at rebekahjbuchanan@gmail.com or message me here on We Make Zines. I'm in the Midwest, but will be traveling this summer doing interviews. Thanks!
