Some of you remember that I used to write a zine called Suburban Blight, in which readers were subjected to political ramblings from yours truly. Well, here we are, 4 years since my last issue, and I’ve decided to return from my hiatus!
I know what you’re thinking – finally, reason to live again! Yes, my loyal fans, the time has come. You’ve weathered bloody wars, worldwide economic collapse, and three seasons of Jersey Shore. Surely, you deserve something nice.
That said, I would love to include contributions from YOU, my smart and sassy friends. Click "more" to see submission guidelines, which are quite lax. You’ll notice there is no deadline. I’m just getting started on this and really have no idea when it will be ready. If you’re interested in submitting get in touch with me and we’ll go from there.

For the Birds is a collaborative group of organizers with backgrounds in feminism, social justice work, and various artistic pursuits. Through DIY feminist cultural activism, For The Birds aims to empower and support radical women of action.
