POC ZINE PROJECT

"I’m also really eager to see what People of Color (POC) Zine Project is bringing. They’re based out of the Bronx and do really important work in bringing non-whites to the forefront of zine communities. This is something that AZF Is highly lacking, and I really appreciate their presence this year."—Amanda Mills, co-founder and organizer of Atlanta Zine Fest

Atlanta Zine Fest 2013

POCZP founder Daniela Capistrano will be tabling on behalf of POC Zine Project at the inaugural Atlanta Zine Fest on June 8 and 9. The table will feature a selection of POCZP zine partner titles, as well as some zines, art and jewelry by local ATL zinesters of color. <3

Be sure to stop by the POCZP table to purchase a fresh copy of Mixed Up! A zine about Mixed-Race Queer & Feminist Experience (you can read and download here for free as well), selections from Free Poet’s Press and be sure to get your issue of masConsumption before we run out of copies!

We’ll also have limited edition POCZP buttons for sale/trade! <3

Judith (see her latest call for submissions to Tom Girl zine here), a local POC zinester, will be tabling with POCZP in Atlanta.

Judith Jones is a writer, blogger, zinester and feminist. She contributes to the online magazine Inconnu and she blogs at Simple But Chic. She can be contacted at pigsthatfly.tumblr.com or simplebutchic247@gmail.com.

From Judith:
I will be bringing issue one and two of Tom Girl and artist trading cards. Also, I’ll bringing a few pieces of my dad’s jewelry to sell. It’s handmade. I’m  also bringing various button rings and earrings that I made by myself. 

POCZP will also be joined by Chantelle Kodua, an environmental enthusiast who enjoys working on various DIY projects in her spare time. When she isn’t out saving the world, by digging recyclables out of trash cans, she can be found spending copious hours on tumblr. She can be contacted at chantellephone.tumblr.com.

Daniela is attending Atlanta Zine Fest on behalf of POCZP to connect with the zine community and local zinesters/writers/publishers/artists of color in preparation for the POCZP tour date in Atlanta in October.

POCZP is sharing tabling space with local zinesters of color, as part of our advocacy to make zines by people of color easy to find, distribute and share.

If you are interested in collaborating with POCZP in Atlanta, contact poczineproject@gmail.com. We are especially interested in hearing from artists/zinesters/activists of color and white folks interested supporting POCZP’s efforts.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Tom Girl #3, the Gender issue
Tom Girl is a feminist zine consisting of collages and writing. 
DEADLINE: First week of July, 2013 - the absolute last day is July 5.
From Judith:
Hello Everybody, I&#8217;m having a call for submissions for issue three of Tom Girl! The theme for this issue is Gender. I know it&#8217;s a very broad topic but that&#8217;s why I wanted to discuss it. There is so much under the umbrella of gender, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to have a call for submissions.
I only have my perspective, and I can read and research all I want but it&#8217;s not the same as a first person account. When it comes to gender, everybody has an opinion, personal experience, a story. I wanted to expand this zine by adding many other voices.
In addition to that I wanted to answer a few specific questions:
 Is gender even necessary/real? If so why?
If gender is real/necessary, what does it mean to be a &#8220;woman&#8221; or a &#8220;man&#8221;, outside of traditional gender roles?
Are woman and men truly different or has society told us so?  
And I wanted to discuss gender beyond traditional &#8220;female&#8221; and &#8220;male&#8221;, trans*, gender fluid etc. I want everything from poetry to drawings to essays. As long as it fits within the theme. If you are not sure if your idea or piece fits within the parameters, please feel free to email me. 
When is this due??? All submissions are do around the first week of July (July1-July 5) and the absolute last day is July 5.Where do I submit/send comments, questions, concerns??? email at simplebutchic247@gmail.com

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ‘nin,’ a new journal of erotic poetics devoted to exploring sex and the body through language

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: August 1, 2013

RELEASE DATE: September 2013

CONTACT: ninjournal@gmail.com

From nin's Tumblr:

welcome to nin, a journal of erotic poetics devoted to exploring sex and the body through language.

nin is currently accepting submissions for its inaugural issue in september 2013. please click on the SUBMIT tab for instructions on how to send us your work. submissions close august 1.

nin will appear in both print and digital formats. for more information about the journal and the motivations behind it, please click on the ABOUT tab.

check back here often for inspiration of the erotic (and nsfw) kind. nin’s primary goal is not to titillate, but if it is provocative and well written/produced, this is a common side effect. this does not mean that we overlook the raunchy. in fact, it might be our favorite.

finally, nin is run by queers, and is devoted to representing all sexualities, gender expressions and ethnicities in our publication. you are encouraged to submit if you are non-native, gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, queer, genderqueer, transgender and/or a person of color.

we look forward to receiving your work.

COMMUNITY: We encourage people of color of all backgrounds to submit to nin and other publicationsas we need more records of more expressions of sexuality and gender from POC around the world—in OUR voices. xo
