Profile Information

Who am i??

I'm Em, 26 and based in Sheffield, UK. I put out my first zine, a collective look at positive influences within queer feminist culture, 'The World's A Mess and Yr My Only Cure' in 2008 with a further issue coming out in 2010. I used to run Lola and the Cartwheels, a riot grrrl chapter and distro a few years ago and put on monhtly shows and clubnights in Sheffield and Leeds. You can read up on Lola here on the archive site - http://www.lolaandthecartwheels.webs.com

In 2009, i booked and read on the European/UK 'Sister Spit: The Next Generation' tour and contributed to a couple of other zines and small projects alongside running my blog - http://girlgotbusy.wordpress.com/ I mostly write about positive outlook, my own personal experiences and feelings, mental health, class and DIY empowerment.

In 2011, i set up my own business which took up most of my time, but now things are a lot more settled with the daily running, i have got back into self publishing again. I'm currently working on 'Poor Lass' a collective zine on positive experiences of growing up working class - https://www.facebook.com/PoorLassZine

cheers for the comment on the group. we'd love for you to be involved, met with peter tonight - my working partner on the alternative press stuff and was impressing upon him the importance of the fem zine scene and having input in the book, please let all the other zinesters etc you know about it as we really want to bring everyone together for this... take care

hey there,

picked up a copy of "the worlds a mess...." at the women's library today, haven't read much yet (i have a really short attention span and tend to read little bits here and there over months!) but i thought that the opening page was really inspiring - and it's really the message that i'm trying to get across with the events we're doing - that people can do it themselves and don't need to rely on the mainstream media to write or draw or whatever... i guess you're coming from a slightly different angle but nonetheless it was great the way you talked about how supportive the scene was and how it made you feel to be a part of it, if more people could feel that about their local scene or community then i think our problems as a society would be considerably less! well done,

I'm just thinking - the distro ran out of yr zine and so we have none to take to London now. I suck, I should have organised this better and got some from you before now. Sorry hon xox
