Profile Information

about me

Womans Monthly is a zine that I manage and direct, and also write for. It comes out of Hobart, Tasmania, but it includes some work from all over. It is also completely inclusive, and discriminates only on what I think is passionate, not on politics. There is a very open-ended policy to do with what I publish, but it does tend end up being more lefty at times, due to the whole radical, grass roots anti-capo freedom of speech thing being somewhat more popular amongst the left.
The mag contains mainly articles and comics, art and music reviews, and comes with a lo-fi cd for free every issue. I want more graphic art, but it just doesnt float my way that often.

My name is Emma Songdahl and I also do some other projects. I am currently collecting zines and looking for a venue to have an independent zine library in Hobart that can also run workshops etc, so anyone keen to be archived, let me know and we could even do a swap or whatever.

The trouble is that I am also in the process of searching for a disused venue for a zine library. So it's basically just an archive at present, although it is set up in proper mag racks in a very busy communal house where everything gets read on a regular basis.

Also, because Hobart and Tas in general is not as involved in zine making as it used to be, say, ten years ago, I am really into the idea of running not only small workshops, but also classes. Despite vast experience with my own zine, I still have alot to learn about the entire zine world, and am pretty confused about what a workshop would involve. I find the idea of a class a much easier concept to get my head around. Interested in chatting with anyone who knows or thinks anything about this stuff.

Just to say hi (hi) & I'm sending you a few zines. Spreading my inky fingers to the opposite side of the world, yay!

I'll give the floor a big kick, so listen out in case you hear the vibration when it comes thru.
