Sorry we’ve been on the quiet side lately, so called real life has got in the way. 2016 was a year of many sassy and sometimes it’s hard to stay motivated or active in even things you love so much when life’s like that. also i got a new job in September that actually has me going to work most days, no more life of infinite broke af leisure. but im all settled in now and it’s Zine Fest Season. we’ll be back with a big old update of new zines sometime next week, promise. hope to see a bunch of y’all in Sheffield tomorrow.

first of all, we’ve done a nice stock check after having a very nice time at the DFSL 1st birthday zine & community fair. everything should be up to date, and i’ve just written a bunch of descriptions. (for me, those are the worst/hardest part of running this distro, ok?)
in other news, we decided not to do a birthday compilation zine this year for a variety of reasons (mostly i just don’t have the energy to do that on top of everything else i’m trying to make, + left it til kinda late again) but we’ve seen a bunch of really cool comp zines putting out Calls for Submissions lately, so we thought we’d gather some of our faves into a blog post. turns out there was so many we’re gonna do two posts. this one is for the ones more FAN zine spectrum of zines. part two will be posted later this week.
CONDUCTORS OF THE METAPHYSICAL EXAMINATION is a Ghostbusters comp zine, and we’re looking for submissions for our first issue!
There is no limit on what you can submit, but ideally it will be 1-2 A5 pages. We’re looking for personal stories, feelings about the movie, pieces on individual characters, lists, fiction, art, collages, anything that goes into a varied zine really! The content will primarily be black and white so if you’re submitting images then high contrast would be best.
We are looking at a deadline of 1st November for submissions at the moment.
Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or check our Facebook page www.facebook.com/COTME
