CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS - TWO NEW ZINES!

swou:

SWOU is very excited to announce a call-out for submissions to TWO new zines being put together by some of our members.

Sex Workers Speak On Abuse: “Too often we’re told as workers that we need to tell our sad stories about the abuses that happen to us during work. Then this is used against us to take away our rights as workers, and argue that that’s why prostitution should be abolished. Or we get the message that we shouldn’t talk about any prior abuse we’ve experienced, because people will use that to argue that that’s why we ended up doing sex work.”

AND

Femme Sex Worker Zine: “No matter what kind of sex work you do/have done or what your gender is: if you profit (/ed) from your own erotic labour, AND femme AND sex worker are parts of your identity, you are welcome to submit something.”

Each link contains information about the sort of submissions they’re looking for, and also how to submit work. Get involved!

howllor:

Support an independent business and help a transgender person with aspergers stay fed!

Hi hello, I’m Mika. some of you might know me as Hallor or through my handle/business name Earl Foolish. I’ve got a newly started business specialising in laser cut jewelry and graphic design. My aspergers and status as a trans person has made it hard for me to find and keep a regular job (whenever I have had employment in the past, I have had to quit because of fatigue induced depression), so my self employment is now my only means of income.

I have a webshop through which i am selling my jewelry. All are 100% designed by me, all chains and findings are nickel and lead free, and you can choose to upgrade to sterling silver as well. Any adjustments of chain length and similar comes free of charge. I ship worldwide at a flat rate of 49 SEK (about $7.50 per order), and all orders over 500 SEK (about $76.80) have free shipping. The current collection is called Sinister Sirens, and features small pieces of original lore, written by Die Booth.

I can also make completely custom pieces if you’ve got something specific in mind, or maybe have a big event coming up etc. 

I also do web design, graphic design, and some illustration. You can see examples of this at the webshop, under “portfolio”

(please signal boost)

thank you!

we have been terrible at the tumblring for the distro as of late. perhaps cos there hadn’t been much to update on? well, we went to not one but TWO zine fests last weekend (sheffield zine fest and leeds zine fair) and came back with a bunch of new zines! though unfortunately there were a few i also wanted to get for the distro but by the end of the day they were totally sold out :( we’ll have to use the postal service for those at a later date. zine fests always excellent times but heck, two zine fests in two cities in two days is a bit much for a little old (30+) lady like me, no matter how near they are to each other (less than an hour on the train)
