I have recently joined this group so I thought I should introduce myself!

Hi, I'm Jemma and I live in Norwich, UK

My first two zines are small faux porn mags. They were made in collaboration under a pseudonym and can be found in full here: www.geniusloki.wordpress.com **Beware adult content!**

My latest zine is entitled "Keiku" and consists of six Haiku with companion pictures composed on my mobile phone this winter, 2012.

All three of my existing zines are small and low budget, if you want copies then just mail me your address and I will happily send them anywhere in the world!

If you like, check out my non-zine artwork here: www.institutist.co.uk

Was wondering if anyone had any tips on making my first zine, It will cover topics such as Socialism, LGBT rights, Womens Rights, facing up to the far right, band reviews etc. If anyone can give me any advice then I would be really gratefull! Also if anyone has any related articles or art they'd like me to use I'll be more than happy to!

I've done a zine review vlog for Spill the Zines, in which I review This Is Water #3, Adventures in Menstruating #3, Graduating Into Unemployment, and Morgenmuffel #19 - check it out and let me know what you think!

My first perzine is out, Any Old Iron. It includes musings on nude modelling, colouring in for grown ups, an original lino print, stuff I like and comics and other jollity! Message me if you'd like to trade, I'd like to gain some readers. Cheers!

Feminist comp-zine Pandora Press is looking for submissions for its third issue!  The theme is TIME.

Here are some prompts/ideas for where you could go with this theme, though this list is far from exhaustive:

Waves of feminism: do you identify with a wave in particular? What do you think the 4th wave will look like?  Do you think that the notion of “waves of feminism” is a useful notion, or is it problematic?  Do you agree with the direction of modern feminism, and its fights/causes?
- A woman’s age/passage of life: What pressures are women under in particular with regards to age – what they should look like, what they should be doing (e.g. childbearing before the age of 35), what direction their life is supposed to take?  Are these realistic, or too constricting?
- The history of women/feminism: Are there any historical women or female activists that inspire you?  Any groundbreaking pre-feminist texts?  What was the world like for women before our era?
- The future for women/feminism: what would a feminist society look like?  How far do we have left before equality is reached?  Is it on the horizon?  Is it possible?
- Beauty standards: are women under pressure to avoid “looking their age”?  What qualities are associated with each decade of a woman’s life?  Are these fair?  What pressures are women under as each decade passes by?
- Young vs old feminists/women: are we being pitted against each other?  Or is the generational divide too wide to relate to each other?  Can we learn from each other?  Are there experiences that exclusively lie with one group, or are we not that different from each other?
- Issues that affect young people: sex education, virginity/chastity/purity myths, employment, higher education, etc.
Issues that affect older people: how is one’s age construed in our society?  Are there prejudices against older people?  Are old people ever favoured over young people (e.g. older men = authoritative figures), or are young people overwhelmingly favoured in society?
- Our current “time”/culture: What sucks about society’s treatment of women?  What will our future look like – utopia? Dystopia?  Will humanity be better off, or worse off, once our generation has passed away?  What will be our legacy?

The deadline for the winter issue is 20 FEBRUARY 2012.

Contributors must be from Wales!  Just email your ideas, questions, or submissions to pandorapresszine@gmail.com.  More info can be found at http://swanseafeministnetwork.wordpress.com/pandorapress

WANTED: FEMINIST ART! Swansea Women's Centre, a women's refuge in Wales, are holding a workshop day for International Women's Day. One of the rooms at the centre will be turned into a feminist art gallery for the day, and we're looking for all kinds of artwork to feature in our gallery! The focus is on women's experience - artwork can include painting, collage, zine pages, poetry, crafts, drawings - anything that you have created yourself! The gallery will be open to people of all ages, so we ask that artwork submitted is not sexually graphic/explicit. The deadline for submitting items is mid-February. We can't pay for items, but we are happy to return them to you if you provide us with a SAE. For more details, email us at swanseafeministnetwork@gmail.com.
