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)
Submit all contributions to: firstname.lastname@example.org”
Get in your submissions this week and we will still try to get it done in time for philly feminist zine fest! If you’re working on something, please email us and we can save pages for you in layout.
Sweet babies dancing to ambulars songs that are older than them.
Sometimes I put on my friends’ bands to see if my babies will like them. The Ambulars are a hit.
Head’s up, y’all. This is the type of thing we mean in our mission statement when we say “We do our best to exclude events with bands, performers, and venues that promote, condone, or willfully ignore racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and any form of malicious exclusion or…
Send me a message if you want to be lj friends. 100% serious. I only post once every few months but would post more if I still had more active friends. I know some of you are out there. I’ll only add you if you identify yourself in your message!
(also just realized this was my 2000th post. it somehow seems fitting that my 2000th tumblr post was about livejournal because lj is everything tumblr isn’t and I miss it)
