I just finished up with the first pass of layout for the new Stolen Sharpie Revolution! I still have to add and tweak a few things. It looks like the page count is going to be 152 or 160, depending on if there is much difference in cost. Stoked to get to this point!
Go help fund the kickstarter! We’re 10 days in and I’ll be bugging your for 20 more days about this!

When I was 15 “Stolen Sharpie Revolution” made my head explode. Seriously, I mean that. It opened me up to so much and turned me onto so much other small press stuff. It was seriously one of the first times I remember getting excited about projects and bands and punk and zines and all of the stuff that I still get excited about. Consider sending some money to help get it going!

I got my copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution in, I think, 2005 or 2006. I was helping out a little bit at an anarcho-collective thing in West Chicago. It was by absolute chance that I found it.
It was a pocket sized book that had a wealth of information regarding all kinds of things. Stuff like how to bind a zine, how to block print, how to silkscreen, and a bunch of other great stuff. Odds are they have something for you, for whatever your DIY project may be.
I encourage everyone to help this Kickstarter out. 

Thanks so much for the kind words!

Ofrenda: A Zine Anthology by Celia Perez

Basically, you want to support/pre-order this zine anthology because Celia’s writing is, as I’ve described it in the past, “…nostalgic, observant, brooding, creative, self-aware and a little self-mocking, smart, and makes you want to be her friend.”

Sweet Candy Press is publishing my twenty year zine anthology! Visit the Indiegogo site to find out how you can support this project. And feel free to share the link with anyone who might be interested. Thank you!

celia perez (of I Dreamed I Was Assertive + about a million other zines) is a badass who has been doing this zine junk for TWENTY YEARS. support her work! order this anthology!

Zine anthologies rule. A thing does not need to be big and shiny and professionally printed to have gravitas in my accounting, but whenever I see someone who makes zines putting out a book, I still feel a bunch of weird joy and pride about it.

In a day in age where a white dude receives nearly 60 grand for eating a potato salad, it is especially important to foster a sense of community by donating and promoting to activist projects that go perpetually unsupported. 
We hope that the tumblr community can help change this by supporting a project created by a woman of color, a queer woman, and a queer woman of color. 
With that being said, the Denton, Texas Femme Fest Organizers/the creator of Muchacha Fanzine are excited to announce the biggest project we have ever taken part in. We have teamed up and have worked endlessly this summer to share this dream with you… FUNDRAISING TO OPEN UP THE NONPROFIT INDEPENDENT FEMINIST BOOKSTORE & COMMUNITY CENTER IN DENTON, TEXAS, SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!!! The bookstore would include diverse books & zines with an emphasis on women, POC & LGBTQ writers, artistic events (open mics, musical concerts, film screenings, art shows), consciousness-raising workshops, and more! 
We believe in the power of representation. A feminist bookstore and community center would help a young woman see her own story in print. It would help a person of color learn about their history and see a name like theirs on the shelves. It would help an LGBTQ individual locate themselves within a story, when they are often rendered invisible.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR DREAM BECOME REALITY: 
Donate through our GoFundMe! (Each donation matters despite the amount. Seriously if every tumblr feminist got out their credit card-if they have one- and spent 1 minute of their time to donate $5, a safe radical activist bookstore and cultural community center would be able to exist and thrive and positively impact thousands of people in the South where a space like this is desperately needed)

Check out our Website! 
Follow us on Twitter!
Donate books and zines! (Email us at SouthernWomansBookstore@gmail.com for a mailing address to send them or for any questions/comments/concerns.) 
Stay tuned for the Third Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest Nov 22, location TBA. Femme Fest this year will be benefiting Southern Woman’s Bookstore. We are currently looking for bands and artists to join our Southern Grrrl Revolution.
In a world where women, POC, LGBTQ projects are time and time again unsupported, please please please consider being involved in the preservation of our knowledge, activism and art!!!
Tumblr Community, I double dare you to support small town grrrl activism and reblog this. Let’s shoot for one million reblogs.

Hey! I’m organizing a little cat zine and want you to be a part of it!The Annex Cat Rescue (annexcatrescue.ca) is an organization that runs entirely off donations in Toronto, Ontario. I’ve adopted my own cats from them, made friends through them and love supporting them however I can. 
All profits made off this zine will be donated directly to the ACR. The only money I take from the earnings will be to cover printing costs and nothing more. You will keep all the rights to your work. I will only be using your work in this zine to raise money for the ACR.
————-
The title of this zine is, “Cat, get off my zine.”
Final Print Size: 4.25 x 5.5 Black & White (book will be portrait orientation)
—————
The theme of this zine is your cat’s butt. 
No seriously. 
How has your cat’s butt affected your daily life? From affectionately pushing it in your face to pooping in your tub because you haven’t been home for two days. From sitting on that freshly folded laundry to mashing a love letter on your keyboard when you’re not looking. Hell, you can just draw a cute picture of your cat’s butt.
—————-
Sign up will be open until September 21th. I’ll then choose 15 artists. If I receive way more applications than anticipated, well I’ll think about expanding it! If I receive less than 15, then everyone wins! This is meant to be fun but I need to limit the size for time/costs sake. 
The zine will debut November 1, 2014 at Toronto’s Canzine fair. 
You can e-mail me at neomonki@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks guys!
Please apply to the zine here: http://goo.gl/AEYbBU
