Fat Zines Anthology

Hello all,

I am doing some preliminary work on a anthology of fat zines and am looking for all that are out there. If you do or have done a zine on issues of size politics and fat issues in the last ten years, please message me. And please pass this on to anyone you know who would be interested.

Thanks!

Food Zine / Other Thoughts

First off, can I just say I am so friggin happy I finally got this thing to work? Because for about a month I got to read on LJ and myspace from everyone else how awesome We Make Zines is, and yet it wouldn't let me sign up/sign in. But yay! I'm finally here and lovin it!



Second, I'm slowly working on a food zine called "My Little Cookbook." Or at least I think thats gonna be the title. It was originally gonna be a food issue of my zine "Motor City Kitty" but then I decided I might… Continue

Distraction in Wonderland #1

My first zine in 5 years is hot off the press.

It has pieces on being being raised by my grandparents, getting naked in Tokyo, mental institutions, being a freak magnet, and my clumsiness.

I used to write Smitten Kitten, Muppet in Training and I ran Smitten Kitten Zine Distro.

Get your hot little mitts on one for the measly cost of $2 or a trade sent to: Kristy/ PO Box 964/ North Melbourne/ VIC 3051/ AUSTRALIA

Desperately Seeking... Cooking Zines!

Do you talk about your fetish for cupcakes or your undying devotion to large pots of soup?

Do you have a thousand recipes in your head just waiting to burst out onto paper? Do you make a recipe zine?



DO YOU HAVE A FOOD ZINE? Is really what I am asking you.



Because if you do, I am desperate for it. I want to cook some new food and I want to share it with the people who buy things from my zine distro. Get in contact...now!… Continue

Tazewell's Favorite Eccentric zines

Tazewell's Favorite Eccentric 8 addresses issues of friendship and trying to maintain hostile feelings about other women while still being a strong feminist. Queer rage, daddy issues, lesbian desire, and the untimely death of a friend.



Excerpt: I just wish it were clear. I wish that I knew what happened. I wish that he didn't die alone and sad. I wish that he'd asked for help. Or that one of us had tried harder because there's nothing for it now.



I cannot imagine being so… Continue

Philly Zine Fest

I just returned from the successful Philly Zine Fest on Oct. 5 at the Rotunda in University City. Thank you to the organizers for putting on this event and to being so welcoming to Brooklyn zinesters Brandi Lee and redguard, who still got a table even though we were driving around lost in Philadelphia for an hour.



The turnout was good, the space was wonderful and child-friendly, I made a lot of great trades and met some terrific zinesters. The highlight for me was Sarah Arr!'s… Continue

ISSUE SIX LOWLIGHTS

HOT/NOT. ALCOHOL VERSION



Mango infused vodka. Stop infusing my vodka god-dammit. Somewhere in Sydney a think-tank is coming up with a penis-infused version because a recent study has shown only underage slutty teens & fags drink the shit.



70% tax increase on RTD’s. Who are thirtyfive year old investment bankers supposed to rape now, each other?



Caramel Baileys. I’m sure it tastes delicious, I imagine it’s like liquid icecream, despite the fact that icecream… Continue
