From Tess Altman ’17:
Join Matt Dineen for a reading and discussion around his new zine “Not for You: Stories of Music & Work in the Precarious Service Industry.” The zine is part of the Music & Work Project and explores the antagonistic dynamics between management, workers, and customers in relationship to the beats, rhythms, lyrics, and melodies played at his past jobs. Come share your own experiences!
Date: Monday, October 12th
Time: 8:00pm – 9:00pm
Place: Allbritton, rm. 311

From the radiant Kate Weiner ’15:
Loam, Wesleyan’s environmental arts magazine, is seeking editors, graphic designers, and artists to contribute to our fall semester publication. Check out the spring 2014 issue here
to get a sense of the work we do. We love sharing creative expressions of our relationship with the earth and can’t wait to see your contributions!
If you are interested in working with the loam team, please contact Kate at kweiner (at) wesleyan.edu
So maybe you’re a freshman, nervous and overwhelmed by all the information coming at you about classes, housing, what to bring from home – and are feeling like you can’t even begin to think about bigger issues on campus. Or maybe you’re a senior and feel like you’ve gotten this far and never really involved yourself in any social/political engagement on campus, so now it’s way too late and where would you even begin if you wanted to. Wherever you might stand, activism at Wes can seem like a huge, widespread and unnavigable thing.
Thankfully, some very committed students are trying to change that sentiment and make activism within the Wesleyan world an approachable and cohesive community. This past week, the Disorientation Guide was released through the University Organizing Center site to bring together the wide-ranging issues affecting us into one document. The entire Disorientation zine can be downloaded here, and I strongly recommend that everyone take a look at it.
From Torii Johnson ’17:

Rachie Weisberg ’15, Becca Wilton ’15 and Ella Ross ’15 want you to submit to this year’s Earth Zine:
A zine is an awesome mini-magazine that allows students to voice their art/opinions/feelings/other synomyms for emotions about, well, anything. In accordance with last year’s Earth Zine, we are hoping this zine will become the new annual environmental publication on campus. Basically, it is an awesome and easy way to get your art published!
The theme for this year’s zine is Earth and Justice for All (or simply put: environmental justice). This theme was decided upon because it follows the Feet to the Fire theme for this year.
Feel free to submit anything – essays, photos, articles, haikus, doodles, – that you feel at all relates to this year’s theme. Whether you have a specific submission in mind or just have a question: feel free to contact Rachie at rweisberg(at)wesleyan(dot)edu. This year’s Earth week is from April 22 – 26 and so we are hoping to get the zine out by around them!
Aviva Markowitz ’12 writes in with a delicious way to prove to everyone that, yes, you can cook. (Look at it as a chance to prove to all your friends that hot pocket/gummy worm sandwiches were only a
one time six-and-a-half-time thing). Friends with Knives, a Wesleyan recipe zine, is sending out the call for all of your (mom’s) favorite recipes:
Do you have a favorite recipe? Do you cook something that your friends always want? Are you dying to be published but don’t write poetry?
We want your recipes so we can share it with the campus! And then we can all learn to cook it!
Please send your recipe submissions to amarkowitz(at)wesleyan(dot)edu before May 1st. Then they will be compiled with two parts sugar, illustrated with a dash of salt, and printed hot and ready before Foodstock.
Due: May 1
Place: over the interwebs
The queer art/lit magazine that was published in the fall is doing an ice creamier, foss hillier, sunnier edition this semester. Which just means it’ll be published this spring. Check it out!
Queer Art is up and running and hungry for your submissions. We’ll publish at least one piece from every person who submits (within reason), promise. Things we accept include:
-Short Fiction (under 5 pages)
-Ideas for a real name for this publication
-Coloring book pages
-Anything that can be reproduced in 2-D, black and white
so submit your work, whether you identify with the endless acronym or if your art’s just real fucking queer, we don’t care. The best thing to do is give us some things to choose from (3-5 items a person) but that’s not a requirement.
send submissions to:
BY APRIL 1st!
Date: submissions due April 1st
Price: artistic immortality
Place: your brain, or wherever your art comes from
