This weekend, the New York Times Book Review ran its how-to issue, which is a rather nifty idea.

The cover of the How-To issue lists eight pieces, two of which are by women. The cover reads, in part, “Judith Warner on How to Raise Your Kids” and “Kate Christensen on How to Cook a Clam.”…

Ladies, contribute to this!


SUBMISSION CALL FOR ++|||<CULT>|||++ (deadline 1/15/12)

Word up. We’re inviting you to SUBMIT TO WOMANZINE for our next issue, CULT. We welcome your interpretation of the CULT theme through all kinds of content, like:

  • Cartoons
  • Jokes, knock-knock or not or whatever
  • Personal Essays
  • News stories, real or fake
  • Photographs
  • Recipes
  • DIY projects
  • Illustrations
  • Poems, rhyming or not or whatever
  • Case studies on internet slang
  • So much more

If you will be writing a piece, please keep it under 1000 words. For graphic contributions, the zine is a half-page, but please remember that we will be using standard printers and may have some sort of printer margin, so bleeds will not always be possible. Deadline for submission will be Sunday, January 15th, but we are always accepting pieces for the Tumblr. So if you have any sort of time-based submission (e.g. audio, video, blingees), please let us know. For any more information, or to submit, email womansinc [at] gmail [dot] com.

For the uninitiated, WOMANZINE is a zine by women. It is always beautiful, sometimes absurd, and historically tongue-in-cheek. Our archives are available here on the Tumblr, if you need to familiarize yourself.
