SALTY: A Feminist/Antiracist Zine. :-
(2004-05/6) In order to create a more visible space
for feminist work on this campus, we were also
interested in spearheading a feminist media project.
The aim was to create a permanent
“broadsheet/journal/newspaper” which highlights
progressive feminist writing in the community.
Desiree Letoi Brown, Piya Chatterjee, Sheila Givens,
Jackie Newton, Natalie Newton and Christine Petit
joined forces to bring out a grassroots, “zine” (see
http://www.grrrlzines.net/) , SALTY. Our first, and
only, issue was produced in Spring 2005. Again,
because of a resource crunch, we could not continue
this effort—but hopefully, if there is interest, we
can forge ahead. Please contact us if you are
interested in producing SALTY again.
Basta! Enough!: Young Women Write Anti/Violence,
Education and War. :- (Current) CWIC seeks
energetic, organized and committed girls and women
(ages 11-25) to create an anthology of writing
(including poetry, essays, short stories,
photography etc.) which address the current
conditions (and crises) within contemporary U.S.
society—and its effects on poverty nationally and
globally. We invite international contributions as
well. CWIC, however, would like to do this with an
editorial collective constituted of young women who
are willing to commit to the project for a minimum
of one year. If you are a UCR undergraduate,
academic credit through a WMST internship can be
worked out. Please contact Piya at firstname.lastname@example.org
