New zine BOTH/AND

Well, since it's International Zine Month and I figured I would write SOMETHING about my most current zine. It's called Both/And, and it's kind of about addiction, kind of about anxiety, kind of about meditation...I don't want to label it too much but it's most definitely QUEER and most definitely MENTAL HEALTH-based (I am a therapist). So, yeah, if anyone wants to trade, that would be rad. I also have issues of my previous zine called THE KEG THE CAKE THE COCK left too, which is also kind…

Microcosm, it’s time for change

Over a year ago I wrote a letter to Microcosm Publishing expressing my concerns with their continuing to involve an abuse perpetrator in their organisation. They never responded to me. This week, there are many more of us writing- united- to Microcosm. This time I hope we’re too loud to be ignored.

Here’s the …

Zines in Video!

A few years back I gave my friend Jackie a copy of my first zine, I Am Not The Rain, which I put together with my friend Amber. It’s a zine about a lot of things, mostly about life after experiencing childhood sexual abuse. Jackie was quite excellently awesome and asked Amber and I if she could turn it into a video story. The video also turned out to be quite excellently awesome. I have wanted to get it…

Call for submissions to Better, Drawn - comics and health issues

Better, drawn is a new place for people to share stories about long-term and chronic mental and physical illnesses, told in the form of short comics. The site is a way for people to share experiences that might otherwise be difficult to talk about openly. In fact, we think that sometimes things can be said better when they’re drawn; hopefully, these comics might help some people…

Boycott Microcosm, Support Survivors

I have started a zine blog (http://sarahtearex.wordpress.com/) where I originally posted this but as a part of my protest, I wanted to spread the word to the We Make Zines community, so here it is...

 

In my last post I was excitedly nattering about all the zine happenings in my life. Among these was hearing from Microcosm that they wanted to distro a zine of mine. Somehow the background on the founder and collective member Joe…
