Weird Terrain


I want to make sure everyone knows about Weird Terrain, a new asexually-themed zine with essays, poetry, and fiction. For the uninitiated, zines are sort of like independent, do-it-yourself magazines that really have no rules in terms of content or form. I got my copy of Weird Terrain last week and it's very, very cool. I've seen quite a few zines in my time, and this was one of the most professional-looking ones I've read. (And I'm not just saying this because one of my pieces was included.) The next issue comes out in May, and submissions (this means you!) are due April 25th. In her editor's note, Anne writes, "...I want something tangible to hold in my hands. I don't want our history and our dialogue to just be recorded in a bunch of 0's and 1's on a computer." And even though I chose a blog as my main avenue of asexy information dissemination, I couldn't agree more.

Aw, thanks! I'm excited by the positive responses so far, & that people seem into the idea.

As an aside, although I'm guessing I don't need to say this - even though I'm really into the idea of stuff in print rather than just internet content, I'm definitely a big fan of the blogs that have been popping up more & more! They've been very important in getting more information about asexuality out there, & I love 'em.

Yaay, mutual appreciation! I make a zine too (unrelated to asexuality) so zines definitely have a place in my heart :-)
