Calls for Submissions: Queer Zines

August 31, 2009 — by e. chris lynch

out of the closets!Future Fuck All

"Hello friends, I am putting out a call for writing, art, comics, photographs, on the practicial and philosophical aspects of gender, sexuality, bodies, and queerness.  Personal experiences (good, bad, and other), philosophies, rants, funny stories, observations, interviews, dreams of the future.  Ultimately, I want to put a zine out that is a positive fuck yeah for queernessi, transgenderisms, bodies, sexualityies, and ultra wave inclusive feminism.  A recognition that all oppressions are interconnected, and the time is now to share our stories and deconstruct the dead ends.  

Years ago I did four issues of a crudely similar zine call "Girl-Boy" with a co-editor.  It was a fun and enlightening exploration, I want to do it again, this time with everybody!

After the submissions have been picked and assembled I will submit the final zine to an awesome independent publisher.  I might also put it on a blog thing for he world to share.  If you want to specify rights reserved in your works, write that on the work, or let me know in some way.  This is not a profit venture, it is to share experience and open minds, our own, and anyone that reads.  

If you have suggestions for a title, please send them in!  My original brainstorm title idea "Beyond Girl-Boy" seems entirely cheesy.  My new working title is" "Future Fuck All."  

Deadline is November 1, 2009.

Drop me a note if you have questions."  - Robert, robotearl(at)gmail.comrobnoxious.wordpress.com

Please send all submissions to benjaminyager@gmail.com or a hard copy to: ben yager po box 48131 denver, co 80204 I'm compiling a zine about substance abuse, getting clean, and supporting people struggling with it. After spending a lot of my life personally struggling with addiction, I'm interested in hearing other people's stories and putting together a resource to help other people getting clean and give some advice to people supporting someone going though it.

Blog: a dirty word in the print world... here's my contribution to the death of print.

August 10, 2009 — by Jeremy Staples

I’m the Australian intern at Microcosm. Secondly my name has been Americanized, I’m now being referred to as Staples. And thirdly, I agree: Fosters is a terrible beer and most Australians have never seen a Fosters before, let alone drank that terrible sewer juice from the Australian outback. I’ve never actually seen a can of drink that freaking huge before. The stereotypes of everything is bigger in the states is actually true.
