We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

seeking submissions for a zine about living car-less

I am planning on creating a zine tentatively titled: "walking through a car-driven world"

The premise of it is an attempt on my part to reflect on my impending car-less-ness in a state that does not have a reputation of good public transportation (all we have are buses, that are not known for their reliability, in RI), and gain inspiration from other people who go car-less in similar situations. 

There are several kinds of stories you can write:

The who, what, why, and hows of your choice (or lack of choice) to being car-less: you can focus on just a why or just a how, or do all of them, it's up to you.

Car-less tricks and tips

Especially I want to hear from people that do not have a good public transportation system in their state and how they supplement it (biking, walking, etc)

Biking safety/repair resources/tips

Walking/pedestrian topics (especially on walking long distances)

Finding work without a car, how do you approach the question in trying to find a new job 

I'd like to set a deadline for June 14, around the time I will no longer have a car and will need to rely on biking, walking, and the crappy bus.

Send any writings, pictures, responses or questions to me...at useyourwordszines (at) gmail [dot]com
