From rebel grrrl Emily Ibarra ’13:
Emily Ibarra ’13 and a few of her friends are starting a new music zine, written and designed entirely by girls, discussing news and issues of the “underrepresented voices in music.” We will be posting issues online twice a month, each including concert reviews, emerging artist features, interviews with musicians/ music bloggers/industry folk, and op-ed pieces discussing current events in the music world. We would love to have anyone and everyone who has something to say/draw/design/ express to be a part of this, so if you’re interested please email Emily at eibarra(at)wesleyan(dot)edu. Our first meeting to discuss web layout and the premiere issue will be held
NEXT WEDNESDAY TODAY FRIDAY, September 28th, at 5:15pm, @ 23B Vine. We hope to see you there!
Date: Friday, September 28th
Time: 5:15 pm

- fiction, and
that addresses the concerns of “Home.” Our theme: across cultures.

Corey Dethier ’12 sends in word about an opportunity for photographers on campus? Wait, am I allowed to call him Corey “Big Bird” Dethier ’12 or is that just frostedmoose‘s thing?
Take black and white photos? Want them to be featured on the cover of a poetry magazine? Hangman’s Lime (Wesleyan’s oldest all-poetry magazine) is looking for a black and white picture to use for its cover.
Photos should probably not be close-ups of a person; otherwise, most things will be considered. Please send submissions tohangmanslime(at)gmail(dot)com in the next week.
Due date: Next week
Tip to Hangman’s Lime: check out Black and WTF when you get the chance. It’s really something.
frostedmoose [8.24pm] – It’s a frostedmoose thing. Also, it’s Corey “I’ve Been a Copy-Editor, like, forever” Dethier ’12.
Isabella Litke ’12 wants to publish you, but no more than 10,000 w0rds (they check these days—there’s technologies for that!):
The student-run Undergraduate Journal of Social Studies (UJSS) is accepting submissions for the fall issue.

Again, due date is November 22. Read more about the UJSS, or check out its first 2011 volume, here.
Since 2008, thanks to fondling founding fathers Yannick Bindert ’10 (right, not naked) and Ben Kuller ’10 (not right, also not naked), Unlocked Magazine has been livening up the not-so-sexy world of Wesleyan publications with an unbridled glimpse at college sexuality. The popular sexzine, according to the Hartford Courant, “treads between artful and graphic.” (“‘This is not your sketchy uncle’s wank rag,’ the editorial board warned in the debut issue.”) It even made the local news that one time (and yeah, of course there was the obligatory Gawker-has-some-weird-grudge-against-Wesleyan-and-no-one-really-knows-or-cares-why post).
But I still think Wesleying’s Adam summed it up best, noting that Unlocked really just “falls into the category of ‘another student magazine that focuses on things students like to do’ . . . in this case, each other.”
Its founders have graduated (PSYCHE), and Gawker’s editors have apparently moved on with their lives, but Unlocked’s still going strong—and seeking a writing-savvy (and preferably not genophobic) underclassman to take on the role of Assistant Writing Editor.
