WHIP it! WHIP it good!


Come one, come all!

Whip is a new zine that we* have created for poets, writers, photographers and people who draw!
Whip's VERY FIRST issue is out and has been traded and given away so much that only two copies remain!
Whip's SECOND issue is on the theme of 'living in places' and is printed and ready for trades!
Whip's THIRD issue will be on the theme of 'animals are not your friends'. Please submit anything on this theme post-haste.
Whip is not made for profit!
Whip is hopefully a bit of a 'fuck you' to people who said 'pictures are pathetic' or 'writing is rubbish'.
Whip always wants contributors! If you write/draw/are creative, then get in touch!
Whip is available from US either HERE (send a message!) or at our email address whipmagazine at yahoo dot co dot uk.
We are NEW to this, but we hope know it is good.


*two sisters, two years apart, in two different ends of the country (and anyone else who wants to join in)

Whip grows and knows
it's highs and lows
it's strengths and strengths

and so Whip shows -
that when you're new
and being true
the things we do
are all for you.

Whip is printing it's SECOND issue 'living in places' at the moment.

From strength to strength
Whip goes and grows.

I'm listening to Billie*
With prints at my side
I'm thinking of printing
And knowing I've tried...
And that it's paid off!
My prints are all done
Now all that remains
Is stapling and fun!

hey! since your in the literary zine group, how would you like to join a collaboration literary zine? the idea is to make a story together (it doesnt matter what genre you do, the more diverse, the better!). for more info, you can look at the collaboration page in my site.

hope you can participate! right now it's still just an idea, so we are hoping to get more people to participate :)

also, both writers and illustrators are welcome :)

I put Candy Box in the mail to you today. Enjoy!

Sure, I would be happy to trade for Candy Box. Please send me your mailing address again. You can send it via this site's email, if you like.

Do you think you will use my poem in the future, or can I publish it elsewhere?

Hi There! Did y'all get the zine packet I sent to you? I see that WHIP#2 Living In Places is done and being distributed. Did y'all end up using my library poem in it? If so, do I get a contributor's copy? If I do, let me know if you need my mailing address. I can't wait to see the finished result.

Harriet - I missed all the comments on my page in the last 3 months and so certainly didn't manage to do the trade I think we were planning! I'm sorry, I didn't know I had all these comments on my profile so I'm just catching up now. Are you still up for it?
