Tributaries #5 by jennyandthelibrarians on what it was like learning to drive (and park in disabled spots). I don’t know how JC does it but there’s so much packed into this lil zine! Loved it as always.
Get it in her Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/tributarieszine and might I add, the zine about what’s in her purse is super cute.
love seeing this in the hands of a faraway friend <3
Say “Hello!” to #DCPL at this Saturday’s DC Zine Fest! We will be tabling for Washingtoniana’s DC Punk Archive with friends from UMD’s Zine Archive too! Libraries + Zines = <3 <3 <3

Collide is a compilation zine on the intersection of physical and mental illness.
Seeking personal essays and relevant artwork for:
Collide #3: Family
Possible topics include:
- How your physical or mental health impacts your relationships with family- those you were born into, your spouses, partners, siblings, parents, children, or your chosen families and strongest support systems
- Genetic inclinations- dealing with hereditary illnesses, family health issues, or concern over passing these things on
- Family support or lack thereof in times of poor health or wellness
- Other topics related to the topic of family (chosen or otherwise) as they relate to your illnesses
Collide is a zine on the intersection of physical and mental illness. Contributors will vary in experience and identities, but must have a history dealing with both a chronic physical illness or disability, and a mental health issue in some respect.
- Essays may focus on one affliction over another, but should involve at least some mention of both, and may be rejected at the editor’s discretion because they do not apply to both categories, or for any perceived sexism, racism, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, or classism.
- Essays should fall generally between 750-2,000 words. I may edit your submission for the purposes of grammar and clarity, but will clear any changes with you before publication.
- I won’t be accepting any poetry submissions for this zine.
- For those submitting relevant artwork, it will be half-sized and printed in black and white.
Deadline: November 15, 2014
Please submit your essay with a short bio to:
