Last week, we had the privilege of looking through all the awesome ‘zine submissions for our first-ever PPNNE ‘Zine Anthology! We were thrilled to read your courageous stories, look at your art, and even laugh at your funny, yet poignant comics (ah, the joys of a pap smear).
It’s amazing how the subject matter of sexual health—birth control, abortion, STDs, pleasure—brought out such different stories and points of view. It also showed us just how similar we all are. These similarities will tie the ‘zine anthology together in such a unique, interesting way…and we think it’s going to be rad!
For the zines we want to include in the anthology, we’ll be reaching out to zine artists very soon. Be on the lookout for our email.
In the meantime, check out some of the past episodes of ZINECORE radio. It features some of those zinesters and comic artists who will fill our pages. Hannah Neurotica will announce a brand spankin’ new ZINECORE Radio episode dedicated to this project very soon. To celebrate the completion of the anthology, she’ll feature live readings from the book. Sneak peak, anyone? You don’t want to miss it.
Until then…keep up your courage & creativity!
WOW! Time flies and our deadline has come and gone.* We are so excited to announce that on June 30th we will be sitting down with all your awesome zines and selecting the ones most fitting to include in our first ever PPNNE ‘Zine Anthology!
It has been such a pleasure to see your work. We’ve loved your bravery, honesty, candor, and of course your humor! As a celebration of this project, we thought it would be fun to share a sample of your submitted work. Here’s a short comic strip by Miki Hickel about a speculum vacationing in many famous vaginal shaped locations!

**cough* If certain zines happen to land in our inbox before June 30th, we miiiiiight be able to add them into the submission pile 😉 *cough*
In the meantime, Hannah Neurotica will be hosting a new episode of ZINECORE Radio with special guest Nicole Miesnik Harris! Nicole is a fiction and non-fiction writer, long time zine artist, and owner/operator of Click Clack Distro. With roots in DIY punk culture, Nicole has been writing about the intersection of having a healthy lifestyle while also being a part of the punk culture. Tune into ZINECORE Radio to hear her live reading, hear her discuss zines, punk, health, and of course take your phone calls!
Show time: Thursday 23rd at 8pm!
A live chat room will be open during the show so you can get interactive.
