Queerios: A Radical Queer Coloring and Activity Book [03 Jan 2012|10:59am]

This will be the kind of activity book I never got (but always wanted) in my early teens. I'd like to put together a coloring and activity book highlighting people who were groundbreaking to you, personally. Harvey Milk and Oscar Wilde will always have a place carved out for them. This is about exploring people who did more than admit their same-sex attraction to the rest of the world. How about what Leslie Feinberg and Kate Borenstein did for trans visability and challenging gender norms? Or how James baldwin and Audre Lorde made queer people challenge racism within the GLBT community. And, just so we're clear? You don't have to identify as queer/trans to have a hero who does. 
Priority will be given to activities like dot-to-dots, paper dolls, and word searches, but coloring pages with biographies are great as well. The deadline for this is March 1st so I can have it put together by mid-to-late march, and out in the world by April. And of course, if you know someone who is interested, please feel free to pass this on to them, or repost widely.

Zine mixpacks [25 Nov 2011|05:23pm]


yf 15 3.jpg

A while back I went to a zine fair and stupidly left half the zines at home and had to make some hasty copies onto white paper rather than my usual coloured paper. I'm moving house and dejunking, and I've made some cheap mixpacks of those leftover white paper zines.

Ynfytyn 15, 16, 16.5 & 17 4 zine pack- £1.80 + post
Ynfytyn 15, 16& 16.5 3 zine pack- £1.30+ post

Grab bags for UK people [18 Nov 2011|08:05pm]


I'm moving house and short on space, so I've got 3 zine grab bags. I would send them to a zine library, but there's about 6kg of zines in total and I don't have the spare cash.

Each bag has around 40 zines, variety of topics and sizes (plenty of perzines).

** UK people only ** Postage £5 **

Call for Submissions - Once Upon A Distro [26 Oct 2011|07:33pm]

I've been making zines since I was 15 - more than
half of my life. At various points, zines have been a way for me to

connect to communities that I didn't have access to, as well as being an
important place for me to write about the stuff going on in my life. 

I've always written zines. I've always read zines. I've always wanted
to do more. So, now I am. Once Upon a Distro is open for submissions
starting now, and will be open for purchases and things starting in
January of 2012.

What I'm looking for right now are personal zines, particularly those
by women, people of color, and GLBTQ folks. I'm not opposed to spoken
word titles and crafts, but those will not be my priority. 

Please feel free to mail your zine for submission to: 

Sarah Rose

201 W. Evergreen Ave #1012, 

Philadelphia, PA 19118

or email with questions: piratesarah@gmail.com

(Sorry for all the cross posts!)

Reclusive Obscenities Issue 3 [05 Jun 2011|07:34pm]


Issue #3 of Reclusive Obscenities is now available for trade. I'm doing a little something different with this issue in that I'm not going to be selling it. I would prefer to trade for another zine, but if you don't do a zine of your own, I'll trade for anything you would like, stickers, postcards, stationary, buttons & pins, patches, art, anything hand made... Pretty much anything you would like as long as it's vegan.
Email me for trades or if you have any questions.
In this issue (since the photo above is pretty hard to read)

  • Blackout Poetry
  • Anxiety, Depression & Suicide
  • Speak the VIRUS Podcast
  • grrrlVIRUS and Riot Grrrl
  • I've Been... Lists
  • Censoring Ourselves
  • Personal Interactions in the Zine Community
  • Zine Reviews

Being Editors #1- Diana Wynne Jones [26 May 2011|02:25pm]


So I've got the first issue of my children's literature zine done. The first issue is devoted to Diana Wynne Jones. There was a lot more I wanted to say on the topic, but it just kept growing and growing, so I cut it short at 60 pages, and I'll probably do another DWJ zine in the winter. (The next issue of this zine is about Oliver Postgate). Thank you to the contributors.

Printed with environmentally friendly purple soy ink on recycled cream paper. 60 pages measuring roughly 15cm/6" square with spot illustrations.
£2.75 + postage
