I am open to taking in some zines for review! I'll be starting a zine review column for Subterfuge magazine (a new-ish women's online magazine) called Broken Stapler. It's been a few years since I got any new zines and I'd love to review some new zines instead of ones I've had sitting in boxes for years and years.
I'm willing to trade you some stamps for zines or pass along a couple of bucks for some zines.
Please, please, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know if you are interested in me reviewing your zine. Let me know what kind of contact info you'd like me to include in the review or any special notes you'd like me to add. I will let you know when I have written the review and when my editor has actually published the review online. As of right now, I do not know when the magazine is going to be live online again as it's been down for a facelift for a while. But if you are interested the web address is subterfugemag.org
half of my life. At various points, zines have been a way for me to
connect to communities that I didn't have access to, as well as being an
important place for me to write about the stuff going on in my life.

Absent Cause zine was established in 2008 as a venue for people from myriad cultures and selves, pushed to the outskirts and into the underground, to find each other, draw connections between their experiences, and gain strength for their struggles.
The term “Dangerous Gifts” is usually associated with the special contributions of people with mental illness / variance. But there are many kinds of dangerous gifts we experience and share: the person who chooses to wear a veil as an expression of culture or religion; gender or gender-less expression outside the male-female binary; being a fat person, a hairy grrrl, or having other physical characteristics outside mainstream acceptance; existing as a survivor in a social system that celebrates abuse and war; the choice to confront capitalism, racism, patriarchy and heteronormativity in a culture of submission; and so much more.
Absent Cause is seeking submissions on your experience of “Dangerous Gifts” for the forthcoming issue. Artwork, comix, photography, essays, poems, and SHORT fiction are welcome.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 30, 2011.
Explore the dark side with Absent Cause:
Underground cultures and hidden histories; feminist, gender-variant and queer sexualities, chosen families and radical politics; vampirism, the gothic, horror and the macabre; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness/dangerous gifts, self-harm and suicide.

Even if you're not in the UK, where library cuts are threatened currently, you can get in touch - how is the library service in your country? Have any libraries been closed due to cuts or been threatened with closure?
The aim of the 'zine is to present a broad range of reasons why libraries are amazing places and so valuable to everyone. The aim is to add to the plight to stop ill-advised library cuts all over the UK, which now stand at around 600.
