Well, I have half a dozen letters now for DA3, and that's good enough for me to get a start on making the issue.
But, because I love making my life more complicated than it needs to be, I've decided I want to 'freshen up' Dear Anonymous. I need tougher covers (rather than green copy paper) for starters. I also think I'm going to do an intro as well rather than just the letter from me at the end. I was going through 1 and 2, and I realised that people might like some warning about the…Continue
I'm a student working on a feminist zine digitization project. I'm focusing on Riot Grrrl style zines but I'm interested in them all! I wanted to hear from some zinesters about their thoughts on digitization and zines from the past.
Do you think you can read a scanned copy and get the same experience?
Are there any zines you wish you could find again?
How useful is online community to zine culture?
Would you be interested in contributing zines,…Continue
Two new zines just out and freshly printed!
Welcome to the Cultural Aether #10
More collaged words and images. This issue is pretty text heavy with a larger than normal amount of appropriated articles.

I've recently started my first perzine. That's not to say it's the first perzine I've started. What I mean to say is that I have started a perzine that I fully intend to publish, at which point it will become my first perzine.
It occurs to me that perzines, being of the nature they are, can invite unwanted attention into one's life if one chooses to publish under one's own name. While I certainly don't feel that I should feel ashamed of anything I write, there's also things like…Continue
Picked this baby up from her at ZICS 2013 - she was running the long table with a friend/colleague and looking absolutely fabulous. She was the only one I was comfortable showing my sketch book to, and she accepted it with grace and respect.
I liked this zine because of it's exploration of gender…

I wrote a blogpost on the Amsterdam Zine Jam 2014 on my blog and also posted pictures on my flickr. I thought it would be best to just link to it, instead of crossposting that novel the post everywhere. :-D

I've finally gotten around to putting together my first zine, and find myself in a bit of a pickle - it's 60+ pages.
I tore up an entire box worth of my old sketch books and scribbles because I was sick of dragging it around when I moved. I've tried to cram them all together as tightly as possible into this one…

Dear Anonymous 3 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!
Lessons learned from DA1:
*250 words or less is good (for one page)
*500 words or less is good (for two pages)
So, basically, you're right in the 1 - 500 words range, but shorter is better. BUT, this zine is about expression, and I don't want to force anyone to clamp down on their passion just for me. I'm flexible. :)
As for content, these letters can be confessionals,…Continue

If you read the juvenile, uninformed sophomoric writing in most feminist zines, you'd think being white and male in America is a cakewalk- that even if your homeless and starving, have hep c and were raped at age 5 in a drug house, as long as your white and male you can just walk down the street slapping black women in the face for fun. Like you can just write "Not a Person of Color" on a slip of paper at a job interview and you'll be president of Exxon tomorrow. It's like it's so hard to…Continue

When you look at Political Correctness and new school Radical Feminism as a whole, in the zine community and the world at large, it really begs the question ;What has really been accomplished by all the supposed changing of attitudes and spouting of political/social writings and discussions, forced and voluntary, related to these theories and their practice thereof ?There is always a pretty big amount of talk in the zine community about feminism, racism, and all these other problems. But it…Continue
