call for submissions - hoax #5: feminism & community

 here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • elitism (identity politics, border policing, & hierarchies within communities)
  • cliques & exclusivities
  • success & personal stories
  • the environment (food politics & urban gardening & eco-feminism & women in farming/farm lands)
  • accessibility (language & locations (urban vs rural) & academia & pretention & childcare)
  • work/ production (economics & capitalism)
  • social movements (then vs now - legacy of the 60s)
  • assimilation vs liberation (when, if, and how to assimilate)
  • the self (self-care & where the self ends and community begins)
  • what makes a community (how does one feel included? & how do we include others & what it means to find a “home” (limits of family))
  • networking (action & teamwork & friendship)
  • “diversity” and what that means (do we need varieties of people in order to constitute a community? & tolerance vs acceptance (cultural relativity))
  • space (physical/ emotional)
  • legislation (policy & community organizing)
  • love (hate & anger)

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.

we would like the zine to be finished as soon as possible, and would prefer to receive submissions before april 21st (within the month of march would be awesome!). if you are interested, please feel free to e-mail us your ideas for topics, or questions at hoaxzine(at)gmail(dot)com!

PLEASE HELP! The deadline is running out for fundraising for The Lips Bus, a veggie bus dedicated to starting discussions about independent media and sexuality. If everyone in this group donated $10 or more, that would REALLY help us meet our deadline of the 17th when we can't fundraise online anymore! Please help support a fellow zinestress with big dreams:

Little Grrrl Lost & Found Issue No. 7 is now available for trade and purchase. This is a special edition zine that focuses on the HOT topic of bullying among teens. The zine contains information on what constitutes bullying, the various forms of bullying, detail regarding cyber bullying, statistics, resources, and a special section dedicated to teens (how to handle bullies and what to do if you witness another student being bullied). The zine also contains a list of warning sigs for parents: How to tell if your child is being bullied and How to tell if your child is a bully.



The topic of bullying is very close to my heart. My daughter who is 14 has encountered some bullies at school and there was a time last year when she feared going to school because of these bullies who threatened to beat her up every day. This is a topic that deserves attention. Education is key in reducing and ultimately stopping bullying. Please refer this zine to anyone you know who may have children or teens or to those who work with children on a regular basis.

Zine is available for trade.

If you would like to purchase a copy please vising my etsy shop (www.blambert1.etsy.com). Zine sell for $2.00 (U.S. currency).
