The subtopic for this issue is feminist, queer, trans, and poc experiences in DIY and punk. examples that I think about...feeling marginalized or oppressed, lack of privilege, checking the privilege that you do have, standing up for yourself in the punk scene, not being (or being for that matter) a straight white cis male, consent, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism,
The subtopic is not mandatory, just an encouraged suggestion. You can submit anything on the topic of house shows or diy music.
The zine will be published in the fall and released on November 3rd 2012 at Milwaukee Zine Fest!
I'll put almost anything in the zine including stories, photographs, comics, artwork, essays, flyers, journal entries, poetry, etc.
Flyers are something I'd really like to get more of for this issue. I'd like to have a few pages filled with a bunch of images of flyers. If you wanna write something about flyering and making flyers that'd be rad too. I'll also be having a flyer "art show/exhibit" sometime this summer/fall, so consider sending flyers for that too. You can also drop flyers off at CCC in the flyer drop box on the shelf by the window.
You will receive a free copy of the zine. The covers for the first run will be hand printed (probably screenprinted).
