Calling all tattooed, pierced and modified feminists!!!!
I’m looking for submissions for my new zine series called stigma. stigma is a feminist zine that focuses on embracing everything and anything about yourself that society deems as wrong or weird.
The first issue is about tattoos and body modifications. How do your tattoos and mods make you feel amazing and proud regardless of the haters? You can talk about a tattoos or mod in particular or just all of them as whole.
Submissions don’t need to be long, it’s going to be a fairly small zine, so one paragraph would be perfect.
You can submit via askbox or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reblog to spread the word, I really want to read and include all of your experiences with this issue!

At least once or twice a month I have a discussion with someone new to the zine community about why I chose not to support Microcosm Publishing. Here is Ciara’s blog post about the cancellation of the Microcosm-related “Bikes and Dinner” event in Lawrence, KS.
if you are a zinester or a lover of zines, this is a really important post.
Call for Submissions: Penpal Adventures! A Curated Zine on the Experiences of Girls as Penpals
Were you a pre-teen or teen girl in the late 80s and early 90s? Do you remember penpal ads and slambooks? Did you collect stationery, address labels and have a special pen? Did you spend hours writing pages and pages to people you had never met and would probably never meet?
We want to hear about it!
We are looking for personal essays, nonfiction prose, comics, letters/excerpts, photos and ephemera from your days of pre-internet correspondence.
Possible topics include:
Writing to strangers vs. writing to people you had met
Stationery and presentation
Your letter writing persona
The transition from letter writing to email, websites and social media
The privacy of pre-internet communication
How letter writing informed real life friendships and perceptions of how relationships should work
The zine will be half size and double page spreads are encouraged for visual work.
