So ZineFest is super nearly here! This Saturday we’ve got a great
programme of events lined up – including comic making, stencilling, zine tours,
stalls, exhibitions, crafting, a discussion on survivor zines, and a panel
on feminist media and memory- including speakers from Race Revolt,
Shocking Pink magazine, Sheba Press, and More Crackers Please. For more info
At yesterday’s Sunday Social (which was wonderful, by the way), some of us decided it would be good to create a zine (a DIY magazine/booklet) on the theme of sexism. We want to highlight all the little (and not-so-little) sexisms that surround us every day – the aim is producing something that we can hand out to people in the street to make people go ‘oh yeah!’ and realise that the fight for gender equality is far from over.
We want *all sorts* of submissions, and we reckon everyone has something they can offer. How about…
A rant about something that annoys you
A graffiti-ed magazine cover
A poem or song
A book or film review
Statistics you find shocking
Photography, drawing or painting
Good news stories about feminist successes
….or anything else that you think can help to convey the message. These are just ideas to get you thinking.
You can submit entries by email or post – the zine will probably be A5-sized so bear that in mind (though we can scan and re-size anything that’s too big).
Help us to make people sit up and realise what kind of a world we’re living in.
