E-mail Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com if you are interested in buying an issue for $1 plus shipping, trading zines, a free PDF copy, OR if you are interested in submitting any writing, art, etc. to the next issue.
You can also buy Muchacha on Daisy’s Etsy.
Editor’s Note: A “Community Submission” post results from a POC submitting their own zine to be featured on the POC Zine Project Tumblr. If you would like to share your zine with the POC Zine Project community, here’s how to do it.
When you submit, feel free to add some background, a description of your work and art and your mission statement. If you just send us the name of your zine, we’ll simply link back to a source for purchasing it and use the language you already have on your site.
As long as the zine was created/co-created by a person of color, we will always share Community Submissions. Enjoy!
