Im doing a zine of volume of horror stories and i want people to share thier work in the black book, the subject can be whatever but as long the horror element is still in the story, the creepier the better,it can go up four pages long. It can be any word format and send a email  to shanpking@yahoo.co.uk with short paragraph of who you are and whats your story about and why chosen to it, thanks.

There inst really a zine culture up in north east england, nobody bothers to do anything with thier lives its watching zombies walking around, i have jumped into horror movie or have bang my head too much when head banging to music but hitting the wall, painful.. my zine is called The Black Book, its short story zine about the perfect murder its pretty much something that would spark a intrest for any horror fans so get in touch

Hi everyone I am in desperate need of zinesters for a little interview, I am doing an academic graphic project about zines, mostly to educate other designers in the world of zines, for this I need a small interview section but I want to interview a lot of zinesters for this! So if you want to help or know people that do please contact me here or tired.eyes.diy@gmail.com

Hey everyone 

I'm making a zine scene in my local area, a fellow zinester and myself have been spreading the love of zines with local young artists and to keep it growing I am starting up a Zine Library, it will live at Transit Lounge Caboolture (which is a non for profit youth arts organisation I work for)

We are just getting our collection started so the more zines we can add to it the better! If you would like to add to our collection please send your zines to 

Transit Lounge Caboolture
PO Box 159

Caboolture, Australia QLD 4510. 

Include your return address and I'll send you one back (one of my own or another local zinester) to say thanks.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

THE FINE PRINT
1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)
