Spring 2011 Zine

A Zine is an underground publication that gives voice to the silent.  It is an opportunity for art and literature to crash together. It is a chance to be political through a variety of mediumsIt is an opportunity to express yourself.

The Zine’s theme for 2011 is BODY: Redefining the Standard of Beauty. We are collecting submissions NOW in fiction, non-fiction, poetry, photography, sketches– any way that you want to express your thoughts, rants, or raves about BODY and the redefinition of beauty standards. Just email your submissions to isuwomenzine@gmail.com by January 17, 2011!

Some questions to guide you:

What is beauty?

How do you feel about your body?

How do others treat your body?

Who is beauty for?

What is your body for?

What is your body capable of?

If you are interested in helping out with the production of the Zine, please email Ashley Schmuecker – ashley.schmuecker@gmail.com or stop by the Women’s Center on campus and talk to Liz or Petey!

We look forward to your submissions!
