Everywhere All The Time #2: Bright Sunny Days, Dark Sacred Nights is the second issue of my travel media zine featuring stories from a year spent traveling and living in Ecuador. From hiking in the northern highlands to a shack on the Pacific coast, the zine spans terrain, time and mood through text and black and white photos. The writing is influenced by my identities – queer, mestiza, POC, feminist, writer, weirdo – and is cut by quotes from Junot Díaz, Gloria Anzaldúa and James Baldwin. 36 pages, typewritten/handwritten and some computer writing, black and white with color cover. Order (on Etsy) here!

My latest 8.5 X 11 b&w comic zine, "Hello/Adios" is available on my Etsy shop for $6 + shipping. 

Hand-printed front/back covers (comes in blue/yellow/orange).

(With tales of tears, joy and redemption in between. )

Women of Color: How to Live in the City of Roses and Avoid the Pricks
Issue #6: WOMEN OFF COLOR

DEADLINE: Sunday, October 13th 2013

So, what’s the theme this time? Women OFF color:

“the term: off-color humor (also known as vulgar humor or crude humor) an Americanism used to describe jokes, prose, poems, black comedy, blue comedy, insult comedy, cringe comedy and skits that deal with topics that are considered to be in poor taste or overly vulgar…”

Despite this definition, PLEASE be conscientious of NOT using oppressive language regarding your submission.

What we are looking for:

Humorous short stories/witty jokes
(particularly observations about being a woman of color in Portland, OR)
Laugh out loud comics
Kinky-erotic poetry/short stories/drawings
Funny games/puzzles/etc
Interviews with the funniest woman of color/women of color you know
Essays/history on the humor of women of color/how humor has been used
to resist oppression
Reviews of funny books, movies, television shows, stand up, etc. of women of color artists

Anything else I’m forgetting…

PLEASE write/edit as how you would like to see your piece published..We do try to scan/proofread but overall your words are your own. And sometimes we just won’t catch everything. Submission lengths can be between 2-3 pages.

SEE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES BELOW

Instructions for typing your piece for WOC zine. We want to type so we can cut and paste onto a page that’s 8.5″ tall, 5.5″ long. (our zine is 8 1/2 x 11 paper folded in half). Open a document in Word. When I do this, the default left margin setting, on the ruler at top, is at 0, between a-1″ and a positive 1″. Leave it there. Type your piece, but hit the return when you get as far as the 3 3/4″ mark. This will create a long column of writing (you can also try resetting your right hand margin to stop it there) to cut and paste. Type a sample paragraph. Print it. Cut it out and see if it will fit OK on the size page listed above

I wrote a new zine about mental health. sexism, racism and where they meet.  If anyone wants a copy I'd love to trade!

My new comic, Erebus the Cat, is now available! Based on my cat Erebus, this short tale tells of the origin of his name and his deep-seeded desire to enter space. It mixes its silliness and humour with a small sad tale, as Erebus finds his way to space.

It's $1 + shipping (another $1). I do trades sometimes, but I've got a lot of 'zines I need to catch up on!
