a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Extending the deadline a bit....
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.
I 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!
