Hey y'all! Looking for submissions for the second issue of the nanny zine we put out last year. Please re-post/spread the word however you’d like!
“CALLING ALL NANNIES
Collecting submissions for The Hand That Rocks The Cradle #2,
a zine about nannying, made by nannies!
Do you have a horror story? A highlight? A list of things you’ve learned? Reflections on whether or not you want to be a parent now that you’ve been a nanny? An experience specific to being a POC/LGBTQ caretaker?
Being a nanny is a tough, but rewarding job. It’s heartwrenching, aggravating, awkward, hilarious, sweet, and very personal - it’s a job unlike many others. We all have a lot to say when we get together. Let’s put it all into a zine.
Any and all contributions are appreciated. We’d like to get as many perspectives as possible. Feel free to compose your submissions vaguely or submit anonymously for yours or your nanny family’s protection. We’re looking for variety - writing, comics, art, etc. All are fair game.
This will be a half-sized zine, so please submit all contributions at 300dpi, 5.5x8.5 or leave the formatting up to us.
Deadline: June 16th - to debut the zine at the Philly Feminist Zine Fest (June 28)
I never posted this comic I did for my zine collaboration with Wendy Xu (@angrygirlcomics) and Stevie Wilson (@sw_inku)–it is part of a zine we made called ‘Modern Magic,’ exploring fashion as a form of magic that transforms & empowers individuals. Modern Magic has been to MoCCa 2014 & Philly Feminist Zine Fest, and coming to Locust Moon Festival in October, aaand possibly SPX which is very soon!
Books have been keeping me very preoccupied but now I have to get back into the world and start drawing more comics (for the next book). A lot of people have been asking “When are these books gonna be on sale?” The answer: by the first week of September! I didn’t have a lot of money for this first run of books but I needed them to have at Philly Zine Fest and whatever money I make there will go straight to printing fresh books to sell ~online~ !! Wish me luck!
