From Paper Gache:

FANZINES! is a festival dedicated to fanzines and self-published books inOctober 2011, at the Marguerite Duras Public Library in Paris.


For this festival we are preparing an exhibition of Fanzines from around the world. The idea is that you sent one or more zines from your production, which will be exhibited in Paris from the 1st to the 22nd of October 2011. The Expo will be seen by a large audience – people coming to the Festival, as well as the regular users of the Public Library.


After the Expo is over, the Fanzine will be integrated into the special Fanzine Collection of the Public Library, so that interested readers may check it out anytime in the future!


Please send your Fanzine(s) to the following address until 1 September 2011 at the latest:




Papier Gaché
51 rue Pixérécourt
75020 Paris




Please do not forget to add your name and the name of your publication, as well as your email address!

QZAP meta #5 Call for Submissions!

29 Mar

Because things were busy back in December we didn’t get many submissions to QZAP:meta #5.  Since we think this is going to be an awesome issue we thought we’d send the call for submissions out again.  Here goes:


Issue #5 is going to be “The Music Issue”, and we’re narrowing our focus a little for this one.


We’re looking for articles and narratives about how queer zines and queer music connect.  More specifically across genres like queercore/queerpunk, riot grrrl, and homo-hop, though please don’t let that be the limit.

Some questions to think about:

  • Did queer zines turn you on to certain bands or musicians?
  • Did queer zines help to promote you or your band?
  • In the age of the internet, MySpace, iTunes, etc. what and how do musicians and zines interact?
  • What about fanzines?  Do they still exist?  Any stories about fanzines specifically?

Ideally we’re looking for between 1000 and 3000 words (roughly 2-5 pages), or grayscale images at 300dpi or higher.


Deadline for this issue is May 15th, 2011.  We’re hoping to get it printed in early June.  All contributors will get a free copy of the zine.


All submissions can be sent to qzap {at} qzap.org



Please feel free to share this with folks who might be interested.
