Yall, I am putting together a zine of anarchist and radical thoughts on the Covid 19 situation. I am accepting poetry, art, memes, photos, articles, documentation of mutual aid efforts, etc. I am taking submissions in any language. I have fliers in english and spanish at this time. Please please please submit!!! I want this to be geographically varied! Please share this in any group or page or email chain or website you think appropriate. I really want to curate something worthwhile and interesting.

Daily haiku are now posted on my Patreon page cause I need money to pay bills yall!
Consider a $5 a month level where you get access to all of my patreon posts. It would make a big difference to my budget.
10 people at $5 a month would allow me to pay off medical debt my family has incurred a little bit each month.
I am updating the posts this weekend with days I have missed, cause online posting can be harder to do than writing on paper for me. But I am taking my paper poems and digitizing them!
I post free things all the time, participate in community events, and do my best to share freely with the world. Lets be real, poetry is not glorified much in our culture. I can’t make a living slinging my poems. In fact I work full time for a construction non profit to try to pay all my bills. Which leaves me minimal free time. I spend a good bit of my free time creating, with words, herbs, food, and found items.
If this inspires you to share $5+ bucks a month with me, my efforts will be that much more sustainable.
There will be more benefits added along the way;; so join now and stay tuned!!
This Saturday!!! I will be there with 2 new zines, old zines and some other people’s zines plus herbal swag!!! Come on out!! #diy #zine #zines #zinester #radical #rva #creative #madeinva #local #writer #author #comics #zinelife #comic #artist #poet
Anarchist Housekeeping: Collective Living Under Capitalism Anthology Submissions Now Being Accepted!
4 years ago I had an idea for an anthology I wanted to put together. I wanted to create a work that would serve as a how to, or how to not, for people intersted in creating or moving into an anarchist collective house or community. I was discouraged from the project by criticism regarding my own mistakes when it came to collective living. 4 years later and I am not living in a collective, but the project still interests me, and still seems to be something that could give voice to many people as well as help people avoid making mistakes like mine or other people’s. My own failures and mistakes in collective living are just part of why I think this project is important, and I do not think will hinder my ability as an editor. I have a strong background in writing and editing. I have one self published book, and have published probably a dozen zines over the years.
Over the years I have participated in many discussions with people who have lived in anarchist collectives and folks interested in the idea. It seems high time to put advice, history, and stories from a diverse group of people together. When I say diverse I am including race, class, gender, sexuality, age, geographic location, ability, etc. All of these types of issues can affect how well anarchist collective living works, or doesn’t.
I want to put together an anthology of essays on collective living in anarchist spaces. I haven’t seen one that was a helpful/informative guide or something with advice, shared lessons learned, examples of how different spaces pull it off. I’ll edit and try to have published via PM Press or AK Press or some other radical/anarchist publisher.
In terms of submissions, a wide variety of forms will be considered. Lists, poems, essays, historical nonfiction, and photographs are the forms I can think of but others may have more. If you have or are currently living in an anarchist collective housing situation, please consider sharing your experience, ideas, lessons, history, etc.
Anyone who wants to submit a proposal should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline for submissions is Nov 1, 2017
please share this with folks you know who live in or have lived in anarchist collectives. I will be emailing all the anarchist collectives I can get info on, but I know that won’t reach everyone who might be interested in this project!
So support my work and buy a dang thing! More zines and crafts coming soon, and a book a few years out!!
Its always been important to me for radical and anarchist events to be all ages. I think multi-generational is key, and kids need to get to be included, and also their caretakers need to be available too!
Kids and their caretakers have a lot to contribute. But everyone else needs to do b our best to be welcoming.
Far too often radical and anarchist events are inaccessible in a multitude of ways. Often this includes being anti-kid. This will be deliberate sometimes, through rude comments, etc.
Other times the anti-kid attitude is subconscious or just from ignorance- meetings late, nothing for kids to do, etc.
Tied up in the anti-kid stuff is a multitude of oppressive intersectional stuff too.
Anyways, in an effort to up my contribution to kid friendly radical spaces, I want to put togethet Wingnut Kid Kits to distribute to all kinds of groups so they can give them out to kids when they show up to events.
If anyone has ideas for more stuff to be included please let me know. I’d also be interested in any donations of materials for the kits.
Stuff I need so far:
Manila envelopes that will fit 8.5 by 11 paper
Coloring book pages or activity pages
Generally speaking I would prefer content of semi-radical character, or at least that doesn’t perpetuate colonialist, gender binary, racist, sexist, heterosexist bullhockey. Would prefer content featuring a variety of types of people and radical themes.
If you have zines or drawings I could include please be in touch!

Ideas for more potential content appreciated. I’m thinking just stuff that isn’t too messy or bulky.
I also will include a letter to the caretaker. So if you have a zine or essay that might be something interesting or useful for caretakers who bring kids to radical events please let me know!
