Camp Mania

"This zine reads more like a transcript of someone telling us all the funny things she's said or done at summer camp. I would have preferred the stories to be more elaborate, more than just " I said this, everyone laughed, I am the funniest camp counselor in the world". Also, with this zine essentially being about young kids, what's with all the swearing? Really, isn't there a more appropriate adjective than "fucking"? I realize it's not for kids, but it still seems so out of place. The premise is what drew me to this zine and the same stories briefly mentioned fleshed out more would be much funnier, also the drawings at the end of the book are really nice and would work even better if they were incorporated into the story.

Cleaner Light
(UK)
"Cleaner Light is largely a collection of Amy’s different stories; travel tales, places she’s lived, ex relationships, times when everything’s seemed perfect and clearer. This zine seems to have two flip sides, one of pure joy and one of harsh reality. On the harsh reality side Amy tells of a radical collective when the dynamic broke down and also of dealing with the daily realities of homophobia that are so ingrained in a lot of us queers that we forget they exist. She also offers some real insights into the realities of domestic abuse, from her perspective as a feminist who works for women’s aid. She drives home the need to look at the problem in terms of society as a whole: how women are still being raised to please and of the crude ignorance of dismissing survivors as ‘stupid’. Amy is a woman with a lot to say. I wish I could somehow get everyone to listen." Quoted and available to order from Cause & Effect Distro.

Complaints and Disorders - the sexual politics of sickness "Working from the perspective that the medical systems is strategic to women’s oppression and liberation, this pamphlet (pre-zine days!) examines the medically supported roots of sexist, classist and racist ideologies that justify discrimination. Again, well researched and illustrated but easy to ready, it’s a great introduction to the politics of the medical industry, complete with an early 70’s feminist gung-ho that also makes it interesting piece of hystory that need not get lost in 'post-feminist' amnesia."

"A Journal by, for, and about Women
Political Commentary, Literary Discourse, Erotica, Fiction, Poetry, Women's Spirituality, and more!
We try to provide a place where women, especially those who may not be found elsewhere, can express themselves artistically in safety. We are not always politically correct but we are feminists in that we believe in the equality of all persons regardless of any socially determined factors. We publish fiction, poetry, art, cartoons, political and literary discourse, and anything else we like. Past issues have included Tarot, Rune, and Horoscope readings; Essays dealing with Discrimination, Female Genital Mutilation, Feminist Medieval Literature Criticism, Spirituality, and Abortion; Fiction Genres such as Fantasy, Lesbian Erotica, Horror, and Romance; and some dynamite Poetry. We do not fit into a neat classification."

ChicanaWriter.com
(US)
"Chicanawriter.com emerged out of frustration when I tried to find sites on the web about the difficulties being a Chicana, both a woman and a minority, how to improve my writing skills, places that were Chicana/o friendly and submission calls for Chicanas / Latinas. I found sites for Hispanic women with beauty tips, I found sites that told me, as a brown woman, that I was sexy if I had a wet t-shirt on and showed off tires on a car. I found sites on the web specifically geared towards those wanting to improve their writing and one site that I found that discussed Chicana Literature, but nothing aimed at the Chicana writer.
