Got a story to share? Interested in women's sexual health? Submit something to issue 2 of The Orgasm Zine!

Deadline December 1, 2012

Jude Vachon is compiling a zine called "Dude. You. Suck." It's a zine "where women can share romantic/sexual experiences with men where they felt treated poorly" in a way that is related to gender and sexism issues. She wants to set up a dialogue between women about experiences with men in an era where men's and women's responsibilities are still not shared equally and focus on the communication gap between men and women.

The weather has been a bit cold lately, but Spring is on its way! I was inspired by the Papercut Zine Library's post on gardening zines and decided to share a few zines for the nice weather ahead!

Issue 2 will be avaliable at the Chicago Zine Fest in March, so you'd better get stated on your submissions! Click here to see the Zine Apothecary website. Deadline is February 1st.

There are some awesome feminist events coming up this weekend at Bluestockings! They've got authors, artisits, and a workshop on orgasms! Click more for dates and times.

We are in the process of compiling the 5th (FIFTH!) Issue of Not Your Mother's Meatloaf, Sex Education Comic Book Project. This Issue's theme is AGE.

Dear Friends,

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.

Sincerely,

Steph

Are you outdoorsy? The Do It Yourself type? Into herbs for medicine and spices? Go foraging with Wild Man Steve Brill in Cental Park this Sunday!

First: the background. I am a blogger for Refuse the Silence, an organization headed by the great Morgane Richardson and the people that hosted this event. And, because I am a huge nerd, I got giddy at the idea of seeing some of my favorite bloggers speak at this event about something I really care about: race in the feminist movement.

(The picture is of me and Latoya Peterson (editor of Racialicious) after the event! Don't we look chilled out?)
