Some pics from last weekend’s zine fest at Pete’s Candy Store in Brooklyn. Thanks to everyone who came!

Hello non-US friends,

I am writing to inform you that we now ship WORLDWIDE!

Your patience and your pestering have finally paid off! Now, on every corner of God’s green earth, you can read captivating accounts of bibliophilia and cinemania!

Bathe with Japanese macaques in the snow covered hot springs of Yamanouchi while you are regaled with tales of James Franco sightings and that funny looking cat from the internet! Stroll along rue Cler while you savor a bizarrely methodical moment-by-moment analysis of a scene from Steve Martin’s The Jerk! Read of rummage sale revelations in Rio! Enjoy entertaining exegesis in Edinburgh! Get your zine on in Hong Kong! Study our samizdats in Stavropol! Furiously scribble margin notes as you debate Tim’s assessment of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints from the treacherous tippy-top of K2!!

All this and more is now possible, as the simple click of a button and a digitally-mediated exchange of currency will send a lovingly packaged bundle of independently published reading material careening straight to your door, entirely irrespective of that door’s location in geographical space!

No longer will we be bound by the oppressive and arbitrary constraints of national borders! Join us, my cosmopolitan comrades, as we embark on a new era of international zine-dom!

BUY! BUY! BUY! BUY! BUY!

Super psyched to announce that we’ll be joining our friends essential-industry, displacedsnail, Research and Destroy, and over a dozen others at Pete’s Mini Zine Fest this July!

We’ve actually never attended Pete’s before, but we’ve heard nothing but great things from those who have. It’s a small fest with a laid back vibe, hosted by a bar. So come grab some beers, buy some zines, and hang out!

Hey! We're still accepting submissions for the nanny zine. They've been on the slow side. We would LOVE for you to submit something, especially if you could do it asap!

Oh! Great to hear it. I might write something up real quick then.

Hey y’all! Looking for submissions for the second issue of the nanny zine we put out last year. Please re-post/spread the word however you’d like! 

"CALLING ALL NANNIES

Collecting submissions for The Hand That Rocks The Cradle #2, 

a zine about nannying, made by nannies!

Do you have a horror story? A highlight? A list of things you’ve learned? Reflections on whether or not you want to be a parent now that you’ve been a nanny? An experience specific to being a POC/LGBTQ caretaker? 

Being a nanny is a tough, but rewarding job. It’s heartwrenching, aggravating, awkward, hilarious, sweet, and very personal - it’s a job unlike many others. We all have a lot to say when we get together. Let’s put it all into a zine. 

Any and all contributions are appreciated. We’d like to get as many perspectives as possible. Feel free to compose your submissions vaguely or submit anonymously for yours or your nanny family’s protection. We’re looking for variety - writing, comics, art, etc. All are fair game.

This will be a half-sized zine, so please submit all contributions at 300dpi, 5.5x8.5 or leave the formatting up to us. 

Deadline: June 16th - to debut the zine at the Philly Feminist Zine Fest (June 28)

Submit all contributions to: nannyzine@gmail.com”

awesome! so many stories…

This zine looks neat!

Bummed I missed the deadline on this, but I’m excited to read it.

The great Minutemen album “Double Nickels on the Dime" was released 30 years ago this summer. I’m putting together a tribute comics anthology and want to invite you to participate.

DEADLINE: All files to w@craghead.com by July 5, 2014

GIG: 2-5 pages (ask me for more if needed),  5.5 x 8.5. in. each, no bleed (leave about 3/8 inch all around) black and white, tones ok. We’ll be printing this “econo” (Minutemen style) so don’t get too fancy. Send me 300 dpi tiffs or jpegs. Dropbox links ok. If you make weird stuff, email me and we’ll figure out how to get it in this thing. There’s room in the van for all kinds of craziness.

SPIEL: Base your piece on a song from “Double Nickels on the Dime.” See track list.  It would be cool to use lyrics as words but we’re not demanding that. Please don’t just illustrate, make something new. 

MERSH: $5/page + your % of net profits after that is paid off + 10 copies. Price will depend on how much stuff we get. 

Email me with questions etc. This project is open to anyone anywhere so feel free to pass it along. We plan to have the book printed and released at SPX this fall. 

LET’S MAKE WATT AND HURLEY PROUD!  Also D. Boon, RIP. 

Hat tip to M Mendes and her Friday Night Lights tribute book for inspiration. also to R McConnell and his Gossip Girl book.

Hear it

Read about it

Putting this here as a reminder to myself to submit something.

Yo providence has prime cuisine. there was no need to resort to taco bell.

A

Not quite sure what you mean by “resort to.” Sounds like you need to “live mas.” (Really though we did get oysters and lobster at Hemenway’s on another day - next time we have to get a bigger lobster)
