The Stolen Sharpie Revolution Kickstarter ends today, September 30, at about 8PM! That means that as of now you have about 10 hours to back the kickstarter. If you do not back the kickstarter and pre-order a copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution they will not be available for purchase until late November or early December, so act now!
Yesterday I got the final files to the printer, ordered the custom Sharpie markers  (they will look like the image above printed on the barrel minus the red) got the t-shirt design off to the printer, and finished the survey that will go out to the backers. I’M SO EXCITED!
Thank you everyone that has backed this project and made it a success. It has been a rough 30 days and I’m glad it is over, but I’m stoked that we made it happen!
If you have not backed the Stolen Sharpie Revolution Kickstarter, here’s you last chance!

VAMPIRE SUSHI vol 5 COMPILATION ZINE
oh i think it’s that time of year again that we need to start doing something about a new issue of VAMPIRE SUSHI COMPILATION ZINE! october 31st (AND OUR FIFTH FUCKING BIRTHDAY!!!) will otherwise totally sneak up on us (it probably still will and panicked finishing of zine will ensue, on top of trying to figure out an awesome halloween costume.. i should have made this post about a month ago, really!)
so yes, after a couple of years break we are again looking for submissions! drawings, photographs, collages, embroidery, anything! also considering horror stories and reviews / articles of horror / spooky fantasy/sci-fi films / books / other media! the zine will be quarter size / a6 but your piece doesn’t have to be necessarily, we’re perfectly able to resize things on the photocopier.
the main theme is vampires but other monsters & horror creatures / themes are welcome too. anything related to twilight is not welcome, unless its taking the piss out of sparkly ‘vampires’. if you’re not sure if your idea / theme / subject fits, just ask us! the theme is super broad, as long as it’s spooky / halloweeny ♥ ♥ ♥
as before we’d especially love zinesters we distro to take part in this compilation.
suggestions:. ♥ marceline the vampire queen / buffy / dracula / american horror story fan doodle. ♥ review / article about your favourite horror film / vampire book / episode of buffy the vampire slayer / supposedly trashy (YA?) fantasy book series. ♥ your favourite / dream halloween outfit. ♥ tarot reading / spread for vampire sushi distro (done this before, would LOVE to do it again for this year if anyone would like to do it…) ♥ vampire / horror fan fic / original fiction.
DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 25TH 2014 (so we can get it finished/printed for halloween = our fifth birthday)
for more info just ask us or email us at vampiresushidistro at gmail.com

just reminding y’all please?

Call for zine contributions: Too Fucked, Too Furious

fuckedzine:

Due to the popularity of our first zine, Fucked: On Being Sexually Dysfunctional in Sex Positive Queer Scenesand our Can’t Fuck/ Won’t Fuck discussions in London and Brighton we are currently looking for contributions for our second zine, Too Fucked, Too Furious

image

Contributions can be prose (probably not more than one side of A4 typed), poetry, illustrations etc. Please email your contribution to sexcritical@gmail.com by Nov 1st. All entries will be published anonymously.

For a bit of inspiration have a look at the event description used for our Can’t Fuck/ Won’t Fuck discussions:

Have you ever felt left out or alienated by sex-positivity and the way it plays out in your interpersonal relationships or in the spaces where you hang out? Have you ever felt pressure to feel/perform desire, to be (or be seen to be) sexually active, to have relationships or date people, to do non-monogamy (or to do it in a specific way), to have fulfilling/pleasurable sex or to have certain kinds of sex?

Do you feel like sex-positivity often ignores the reality of living, and trying to be sexual, in a racist ableist cissexist hetero-patriarchal rape culture? Have you ever felt like consent shouldn’t be framed in terms of sexiness? Does your queer or feminist community fail to make space for people on the asexual and aromantic spectrums? 

When most of the queer and feminist spaces we have access to are explicitly sex-positive and/or centred around hooking up, talking about sex-negative or sex-critical feelings can often make us feel like kill-joys, pissing on everyone else’s sexually liberated parade. 

This discussion aims to provide a safer space in which to talk about the above questions. We will also be exploring ways in which our queer and feminist communities can be more inclusive of those who can’t fuck, won’t fuck, don’t fuck, or who choose to only fuck some of the time.

we have been terribly quiet all summer. our deepest apologies! we’ve finally had a proper post move stock check, and even written some descriptions for the zines. about flipping time!
while unpacking we found a whole bag-for-life of old zines from tukru’s personal collection that we had meant to do grab bags of ages ago. (like a couple of years! we found the bag under the bed…) and the other day we finally sorted them out into FOUR grab bags!
each bag has 20+ zines (about 800g in weight) various subjects and genres/styles. they are £4.50 inc. 1st class P&P in the UK. (if you’re outside uk and still interested, please contact us for shipping costs. though unfortunately won’t be cheap these days…) you can paypal us a personal payment to vampiresushidistro@gmail.com (which we prefer cos ugh fees) or using the buy now button on the distro website.
any money made from the grab bags will go on new stock, not to feed tukru’s monster high doll habit, promise!

Call for entries: writing, illustrations or comics on the theme of street harassment

awhisperorashout:

I’m making a new feminist zine called ‘a whisper or a shout’. The first issue will be on the theme of street harassment. Submissions can be in the form of personal stories and experiences, rants, examinations of pop culture, formal essays, poems, drawings, comics, other visual art (please note it will be printed in black and white), in whatever tone you are comfortable expressing in. All writing styles and levels of experience are welcome!

I’m particularly interested in people who may have experiences of receiving harassment because of their race, gender expression, sexuality or disability. People of any gender may submit.

The zine will be made not-for-profit, and everyone who contributes will get a free copy. Submissions can be emailed to awhisperorashoutzine@gmail.com by September 1st.

(please re-blog!)

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!
