Milwaukee Zine Fest next weekend!

4 Dec

Oh, I’m so sad the Zine Apothecary won’t be at the Milwaukee Zine Fest next weekend, due to an awesome new job. :)/:(

But YOU should go. Oh yes. It’s a weekend-long affair.

The QZAP folks are some of the planners on this, and after attending this summer’s Milwaukee Zine Librarian’s (un)Conference, it’s SURE to be good and amazing.


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.
