WOMANZINE 2.0
WOMANZINE is a zine about / for / not for women.
We are currently Tumbling inspiration for PATTERN.

WOMANZINE is a production of WOMANSINC.,
birthed ceremoniously through WOMANDINNER.

Interested in submitting? Get in touch!
(so long as you are a woman or identify as one.)

All original content—specifically, zine submissions posted here—is copyright Womansinc., 2013.

We hereby officially announce the theme of the next Womanzine issue: E M O J I. 
Still or animated, holiday-themed or heteronormative, emoji are everywhere. So we’re inviting YOU to submit something emoji-related for our next issue by January 10, 2013 (we’re launching this issue on/around Valentine’s Day, if that makes any sort of difference to you).

Questions we’d like to have answered:

When did we start calling them “emoji” and stop calling them “emoticons”?
Is “emoji” Japanese?
Are most emoji developed in Japan?
Are Japanese people able to communicate only using emoji?
Do you know an emoji developer?
Can you make your own emoji?
If so, can you put it on your phone and send it to people?
What are the socio-cultural implications of the iPhone emoji set?
Why does the “extra” emoji set in Gmail have a host of emotions for a white face, but not a brown one?
Can you write a recipe using emoji?
Where can we make emoji of our faces so that we can text them to friends?
Why do teens always have emoji in their Twitter handles?
Have you hacked your Android so you can text with iPhone emoji? 
Womanzine accepts basically all forms of media and encourages weird/complex things, but also loves a good knock-knock joke. For example, we love:


poems / recollections / musings
DIY / craft shit / collages / illustrations / photographs
book reviews (??? is there a book about emoji???)
videos / gifs / screen grabs with stories
songs / mix tapes (ahem, mp3s or spotify or soundcloud etc.)
etc.

Email us here to submit or to ask questions about a submission. Check out past issues for inspiration.

    I really want to get to the bottom of this Japan thing. Is this just a gross assumption on my part?
