To My Rapist - Call for Contributions

I'm thinking of putting together a book called "To My Rapist." A compilation of poems and images dedicated to those dark pieces of them that still remain deep in our brains. Nothing too graphic, but melancholy, anger, etc. etc. is all welcome. I will be sharing a few of my pieces as well - if you'd like to see those to get an idea of what I'm talking about or if you'd like to submit email jennifernicholewells@outlook.com.

As part of my ongoing effort to simplify my life, I've re-released a zine and a chapbook that were out of circulation for a long time. The zine "Genius (Love)" has been out of circulation for 4 years because I never found the time to screenprint the covers! I decided to re-do the cover so I can just…

Poem #1

Love is like a rock

It's hard

It's oddly shaped 

Hardly even fully clean 

And can inflict pain

Unto the most thick-skinned individuals 

But it's always there

In all the down low places

You don't care to look 

It's under your feet 

And in cracks in the wall 

It's a constant 

Like the wind 

It's a token of the past 

Like a memory 

It fades

This magazine is about expressing yourself. We do not restrict our publication to the confines of traditional poetry. If you write about drunken nights out, remembered or imagined, we want to see it. If you write about how society…

International ZIne Month 2011 - part two

Following on from part one and what events I attended as part of International Zine Month here in Auckland.

The Hands On Poetry was an event focusing on poetry zines and National Poetry Day. The launch of self-published poetry anthology Hands Like Mirrors was the…
