GET FIT FOR THE PIT!
All too often the punk scene seems to look
down on athletics and sports of all kinds. I happen to regret a lot of
my past shunning of sports and fitness for the sake of it not being
“punk rock.” In 2009 i started running and fell in love with it. (After I
quit what could have been a pretty good softball career at age 15
because I was too cool.) It still feels somewhat awkward to have one
foot in the running community and the other in the punk community.
am looking to put together a zine writings/essays, art, comics, etc
about the joys of participating in sports and/or getting fit. Why is it
important to you? Why do you think that fitness is shunned in the punk
scene? Can you be into organized sports and not be a “jock?” These are
just some ideas to get you going, anything involving athleticism and
being into the punk scene will be looked at!
I’d love to start putting together this zine in the new year, so submissions are open until December 31st.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your article or if you want to lay out your own half size page(s)
you can also mail it to me, PO Box 35501 Richmond, VA 23235 USA
