Today, I'm cataloging a bunch of zines that I ordered, a few that were hand-delivered, and when I'm done with them getting back to Keight's delightful donation.

Most every Friday (and sometimes Saturday) I spend 8-12 hours cataloging zines. It's more fun if I get to tell you about them, don't you think? This week, I'm still working my way through zines I bought or traded for at the Brooklyn Zine Fest and zines that came in the mail in the last month or so.

The theme for the upcoming issue #5 (Spring, 13’) of my fanzine Muchacha is "Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century." I am calling out to Latina/Chicana/Hispanic identified women worldwide to contribute their voices though an array of mediums including poetry, essays, art, comics, etc. I want this issue to serve as a time capsule for future generations of Brown women. Let our voices be heard and let us pick up the pieces and continue the lessons of our foremothers. As Gloria Anzaldúa brilliantly said: "I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence."
