For those of you who don’t know, Tumblr is a fantastically fun place full of food, feminism, fandoms, and kittens! However, one thing Tumblr isespecially great for is allowing young artists to self-promote; they can post, share, and sell their work, all while having fun blogging.

There are days when I feel like I have a good grasp on this whole adulthood situation and like I've put high school far behind me. But the moment I start to feel like a grown-ass lady, something comes up that uncovers all my repressed teen emotions: the pit of despair, mild identity crisis, and awkwardness that is being a young girl. Today, that something was Michael Lucid’s 1996 documentary, Dirty Girls.
Watching this 18-minute ... Read More

During this event, there will be zinemakers reading from their work, and plenty of zines have been donated to raise ... Read More

How apt that this blog-slash-zine is titled “Got a Girl Crush,” since we certainly have a crush on it. Got a Girl Crush began in 2009 as the brainchild of friends Meg and Andrea, who we got to talk to about the project. In 2011, the first print issue of Got a Girl Crush dropped, and it was chock full of photos, interviews, and inspiration from ladies “doing amazing things in [their] own backyards.”
The idea of Got a Girl Crush is to ... Read More

Perhaps there are some of you out there who, like me, still don't quite know what "zine" means. No worries, here's a quick explanation: "zine" (pronounced zeehn) is short for magazine, but that doesn't fully capture the spirit of a zine. To use the words of NYC Feminist Zinefest, a zine is "like a small, pocket-sized emissary of ideas".
But these definitions will only get you so far. This Saturday, February 25th, at the Brooklyn Commons, come ... Read More

Why do you make a zine?

And how can I find out more? Be you a seasoned vet, a zi-curious newbie, or an unrelated browser in the right place at the right time, you're ... Read More
