submissions of the ziney kind

Reassess Your Weapons
zine needs contributions and submissions for it’s tenth issue.

We hope to have this issue ready to take to the Zinefest occurring at The Women’s Library in London on January 24th 2009.

As always, general submissions are hugely sought after, as well as submissions around this issue’s theme; Boundaries.

The theme developed from the need to recognise and respect boundaries in order to effectively and comfortably work within, and contribute collectively to our communities.

However, please feel free to contribute by exploring any ways in which boundaries affect or influence you. Or around the theme of boundaries in general.

Reassess Your Weapons zine developed from the Manifesta feminist and queer DIY collective in Leeds, UK but has grown into a wider collective, contributions based zine, which is looking for submissions from and friends and supporters of Manifesta’s feminist ethos.

To contribute, or for more information, please contact:

Deadline for submissions: January 4th 2009

u'huh i hear ya

Sometimes when I'm flailing, I need someone to tell me what to do and knock some sound sense into me.
Today I found a little sense here
More of their inspirational (and ridiculous) resolutions are here


Oh, and while I'm at it, more good mantras:

I heart you, nara!

(photo above pinched from Rebecca at Angry Chicken blog, cuz my camera isn't digital, so it'll be an age before I process my own photos.)

I hopped on the train today up to Newcastle to the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art to see the Yoshitomo Nara A-Z Project there.

The train broke down for over an hour on the way (air was leaking from the brakes... apparently this isn't as scary as it sounds...) so I was hella late arriving so ran (okay, for those that know me, this isn't strictly the truth, I didn't technically run, but you get the picture!) to Baltic before it closed (both the gallery for the day, and the Nara exhibition, which ends next weekend - so if you wanna go, be quick!)

I was pleased I'd made the effort though, as despite only having an hour to explore, the exhibition was wonderous.

The exhibition was situated within a constructed 'village' of wooden huts, all accessibe via wooden ramps and walkways connecting them. Each house/hut required you to bob under tiny wooden doorframes and small entrance porches and tunnels, like a wonderful children's adventure park.

Inside the houses, Nara's art had been exhibited alongside oodles of tiny plush and fluffy toys, nick-nacks, and remnants of the artists studio; making it all feel so homely and real, and like you were peaking into the world and life of Nara and his wonderfully charming mind.

The artworks inside could also be seen by peering through the windows of the huts from outside them, like a special game of peeping tom, all wonderfully lit and placed in order to catch a glimpse of his work and the paintings' eyes and faces through every higgledy-piggledy window frame.

It really was magical, and so wonderful to see Nara's work up close.
Especially these two:

It was really special too to see the faces of people as they exited each of the huts, with looks of joy and wonder on their faces.

A very special day for me, as I've loved Yoshitomo Nara's work for quite some time now.

(the photos here don't quite do the experience justice, if you get to go before the exhibition closes on Oct 26th, do do do!)

Tag team

Eek, Sarah Utter over at Snazzy Bouquet blog "tagged" me in this blogger game of divulgance. Thanks for the invite, but please bear in mind my anecdotes are always pretty mundane!

Let's hope this isn't as rough as the brutal game of tag at school which went under the name of 'British Bulldog' and eventually got banned from the playground...

The rules and regulations of this shindig are as follows:

So here are the rules:
• Link to the person who tagged you.
• Mention the rules.
• Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
• Tag six other bloggers by linking to them.(sorry in advance!)
• Go to each person's blog and leave a comment that lets them know they've been tagged.

I once met Drew Barrymore. She was on honeymoon in Dublin with Tom Green and I bumped into her at the city art gallery there. Please understand, I've always been somewhat of an uber admirer (and seen 90% of her films; yes, that even includes 'Home Fries'!!!), so I kinda freaked and lost the plot with nerves and excitement. Also note, I had had my lip pierced a couple of weeks before (hey, I was only like 20 or something!) and hadn't yet fully recovered from the swelling there. So I sidle up to Drew after my friend had calmed me down and fully convinced me that if I didn't say 'hi' I'd kick myself forever. So Drew's looking uninterestedly at some uninteresting artwork, and I say 'hi' and shoot her my most 'hey I kinda love you, love me' smile. And as soon as I'd moved my mouth into the smile shape my swollen lip contorted into some unfeasibly unattractive state, and I realised I'd just GURNED at Drew Barrimore. Oh the shame! I gurned at Drew Barrymore...

I'm a bit OCD about cutting my toe nails, and sometimes feel the urge when I'm half asleep to get out of bed and trim them, regardless of whether they need it or not as I can't sleep til I've done it.

Sarah U at the end of her 'tag' game asked: "What word is hard for you to pronounce?" I struggle with words with silent letters, cuz I always try and pronounce that letter for some reason, maybe I feel sorry for it. In particular, the word 'February' is a killer. Kinda ruins that whole month for me!
Oh, but also, 'dwarf' is one that I simply trip over every single time. Those letters in that order make my brain and mouth spasm.

I realised tonight, watching it with friends, that I can *still* quote the entire film, 'Reality Bites', line-for-line. And it's been like 15yrs since that film came out, or something!

I was on the front page of the 'Yorkshire Evening Post' the day my A Level results came out when I was 18 as I'd done kinda well (okay, I was hella geekish at school and got some pretty good grades), and the photo they took to feature on the front page was of me and two other girls jumping in the air waving our results. If you look at the picture though (and this is waaaay before the days of Photoshop, so I musta managed to contort myself in some hella strange way) I have a third arm reaching out from behind my head. My Mum was really proud that I was in the local paper, til I pointed out the third-arm thing and totally ruined the moment!

I once ate so many tomatoes from my dad's greenhouse that it turned all the skin on my tummy orange and I had to stop.

I tag:

Good luck!

fem ad lib

Sometimes I get the most wonderful emails in my inbox. Emails that remind me that behind the hustle and bustle of things, people are working on amazing projects and community events and activisms that are really important.
This is just one of today's, & I hope, perhaps, in some way to be involved with the discussions for this particular one...

Although we haven't organised any exhibtions since secret lives, we've been very busy with our latest project.
Called fem ad lib, it is a project on the theme of feminist art - it inlcludes discussions, a one-day conference for women in March 2009 and a month-long exhibtion of feminist art in June 2009.
Our website has more details.

If you want to get involved or want to be on the fem ad lib mailing list or if you have any suggestions , ideas or comments you'd like to share with us, please get in touch.
We are particularly keen to work wwith women artsists from a range of differnt backgrounds and women working outside the UK - so please spread the word as far as you can.

Best wishes from Banu, Caroline, Helen and Itziar

cleanliness is next to godliness

Continuing my plunge headlong back into my early 90s...

All that's missing is the image of me with my finger poised, hovering over the 'record' button on my video every one in four saturdays waiting for the indie chart to appear!

we have got to... work it out!

It seems the times of the workshop I'm a part of at Ladyfest Manchester have changed.

New details are:

"Melanie Maddison (editor and author of zines such as Reassess Your Weapons and Colouring Outside the Lines) and Gill Court (editor of Subtext magazine) will be talking about the inspiration and perspiration behind their forays into the world of DIY publishing. For beginners there will be the chance to learn how to put a zine together and get ideas whilst also learning how to print and distribute your very own publication. There will also be a open discussion about the future of feminist independent print media and the ways in which it might grow to both represent and act as a catalyst for community activism."

Sunday 9th October 1pm-3pm.

All this too:

a good frind of mine has been really busy organising this...

New Queer Theatre @ Theatre in the Mill (Bradford)

Re-opening its doors to the public after a much needed facelift, Bradford's Theatre in The Mill, in association with Alan Lane, presents Development Lab, a creative laboratory designed to offer support and space for experimentation to innovative theatre makers from across Yorkshire.

Development Lab delivers a space within which small artistic companies or individuals can push the boundaries of their creativity to produce new and original work for local, national and international arenas.
Development Lab will showcase some of the most exciting new queer theatre being written today.

Infinite Lives by Chris Goode (21st & 22nd October, 7.30pm) tells the story of a thirty-something man who quits his job to take time out and write a gay sci-fi novel.
His increasing dependence on the internet to connect with the outside world leads him to face some painful truths… and some very big numbers.
Beautiful, funny and fabulously filthy, Infinite Lives is a candid and provocative play for anyone who ever wondered what became of the future that never arrived…
Face-to-Face (free. Post show discussion with cast & the team behind "Infinite Lives"): 22nd October, 9.30pm.

Hey Mathew (23-25th October, 7.30 pm) is an immersive performance that explores Paul Goodman's life and ideas, and the challenges his work still poses to the way we live now and the boundaries of our artistic freedoms.
Rich, complex, powerfully erotic and suffused with poetry, 'Hey Mathew' sets up a stimulating encounter with a seductive and visionary mind.
To a whole generation of American youth, Paul Goodman was an intellectual hero. Poet, playwright, essayist; anarchist, pacifist, provocateur; pipe-smoking academic, radical queer renegade: in the early 1960s, Goodman was one of the most visible and important thinkers of his time.

With the band a pop project -By Lucy Ellinson and company (24 October, 9.30pm) Something exciting is happening, behind the scenes.
A boyband is to be born, but a boyband with a difference. As each boyband member is -a girl. Pop history in the making. Be there. Make it.
For all who have ever loved a boyband, this is the experience for you. Step into the arena of your imagination and be part of this innovative new performance project, from Theatre in the Mill's associate artist, Lucy Ellinson - a project in POP!
Face-to-Face: 24th October, 10.00pm, free. Stella Duffy will host a post show discussion with Lucy Ellinson and Chris Goode on 24th October 2008.

"and i hear wolves"

Parts from an upcoming US documentary film, Who Does She Think She Is?

See the website for the full trailer which shows more about this project which explores women, art, motherhood, and the artworld's response to female creativity.

A synopsis of the film states: 'we explore some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art. The film invites us to consider both ancient legacies of women worshipped as cultural muses and more modern times where most people can't even name a handful of female artists.'

Ovary Action

This happened a little while ago, but I only just got round to mentioning it...

Ovary Action radio show from Oslo, Norway featured my zine, Colouring Outside The Lines on air.
The lovely presenter of Ovary Action, vAl, wrote in her myspace blog about the show:

I must confess I was nervous because the pieces of art I was presenting that day were ... intimidating (understand: amazing). I have a huge respect for these artists and I was honoured to present their work on the show -has the introducing drumming been long enough now? Are you impatient???? Ladies, ladies, women, grrls and other members of the human species, I have the immense pleasure to WARMLY recommend you :

*from Leeds, UK, the most excellent, inspiring, thorough, fascinating zine i have EVER seen, read, heard of: Colouring Outside the Lines (The title itself is just perfect! thanks to Clit rocket Veruska for giving me a copy of issue 3!!!). The zine is a collection of interviews of female artists, features tons of artworks and great texts. It's not only great in its content, extremely smart and relevant, deep and fascinating, it also looks great! And guess what, issue 4 is out. get in touch with Melanie: or on myspace: and enjoy the amazons riding the unicorns.

Huge thanks to vAl for all her support xox

i will never love you more than kissing girls lips

Sod it, I know this blog now looks like it's sponsored by Youtube, but this SoKo video is just too beautiful to not post.

the buffalo tom makes it, for sure!

Re-living your fourteen old self when you're now 27 and should have grown up a bit probably isn't the wisest thing; but re-watching My So Called Life episodes from 1995 and seeing this scene took me straight back there in an instant, and it's a bizarrely comforting place to be!..

Only, it was always Rickie and Rayanne that were the scene stealers for me during the rest of the series...

Oh, I feel so shallow and a-political all of a sudden!! Yet also right here, right now, I have no shame!!

Dear Joanie, I made a Movie: a survey of the Joanie4Jackie Chainletter Tapes from 1995-2007

Curated by Miranda July and Shauna McGarry, Programmed by Amy Lynn Kazymerchyk

Last June I visited The Way That We Rhyme: Women, Art & Politics exhibit at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. The exhibit included a retrospective on Miranda July’s Joanie4Jackie Project (formerly Big Miss Moviola). As an independent distribution system and feminist art project Joanie4Jackie invited women filmmakers and video artists to submit their completed works which were then compiled onto a “Chainletter” tape of ten pieces in the order of their arrival. Each artist on a Chainletter tape received a copy of that tape and a corresponding booklet of letters written by the featured artists. In 12years Joanie4Jackie compiled 19 Chainletter tapes and three curated Co-Star tapes. As I stared down into the glass case that housed a decade of the project’s video cassettes, letters, and related ephemera, I felt proud to have contributed my teenage movies to such a monumental exchange, and nostalgic that at 27yrs old something that was so tangible, raw and experiential in my lifetime was already an untouchable museum piece. And yet Joanie4 Jackie's challenge and promise continues to live on in the hearts of everyone who waited patiently for their Chainletter tape in the mail.
We have adopted that promise and passed on the challenge to the girls and women that we teach and mentor to make, distribute, and screen their untold stories and dreams.
www. joanie4jackie. com - Amy Lynn Kazymerchyk

A Chainletter DVD of films and videos made by Women Media Artists who call, or have called Vancouver home, will be released at the screening, and available for sale. This compilation features the work of Dana Claxton, Leigh Fisher, Lisa G, Amy Lynn Kazymerchyk, Donna Lee, Terra Jean Long, Miriam Needoba, Helen Reed, Julie Saragosa, Maya Suess, Lyndsay Sung & Rafael Tsuchida, Donna Szoke, and Emma Waltraud Howes.

You call them horse pills

I adore Casiotone for the Painfully Alone (the Leeds Brudenell gig earlier this year is in my top-10 gig highlights this year, for sure), and I have been crushing badly over Julia Pott's artwork since first getting to feature it in COTL4, so imagine my delight at this...

So so sad ('some things you lose, some things you give away' as Corin once said...)
Oh, but then the sad cat's choreographed dancing is just pure priceless beauty.

stay up all night with the things you could do; you won't but you might...

One thing I've learnt in my life is than when I'm feeling sad, I really shouldn't let myself listen to 'sad music'. Sad music to me is music that identifies with the emotions I am experiencing, lyrics that spur me on, that connect fiercely with my state of mind.
I know I really shouldn't, by inevitably I always do.

I have been reading this book tonight:

Autumn de Wilde's book on Elliott Smith.
I got to listening to the accompanying CD. And it doesn't matter which live recording or studio album I'm listening to, Elliott Smith just gets it and as such has accompanied all too many of my dark times - yet I cannot think of him and his music and those albums without the greatest sense of love and contentment.

I've forgotten the reason for my blog post now, cuz I've got too wrapped up in the music. Blah, maybe written diaristic communication like this really isn't my forte at all...

Ladyfest Manchester

I have been invited to speak at a workshop discussion at November's Ladyfest Manchester; creating a collaborative area for discussion on independent media.

The workshop on DIY Media making will also feature Gill, the editor of Subtext magazine

We shall be discussing our personal motivations/reasons for doing what you do and why we think an alternative to glossy mainstream magazines and newspapers is important - the politics behind what we do with our publications, as it were. We will also be discussing the practical aspects of getting things printed - costs, distribution, getting contributers etc. and the creative aspects of self-publishing.

However, I think it would also be really important within the workshop discussion to look at how radical politics and our activisms and community organisings could be referenced more in the press we produce, and how the press we already produce is and can be a strong force in such activism itself.
These thoughts come in response to a post I read on the FAF (Feminist Activism Forum) calling for:

'a uk based print magazine/paper/zine which documents the activism and community organising that women are doing in this country and beyond.
While there's been a number of new feminist magazines over the last few years in the uk, none have really addressed the issues that are affecting poor and/or immigrant and/or disabled and/or Black and/or Asian and/or aslym seeking and/or trans women (and actually, not just women).
It comes from reading old issues of outwrite, the anti-imperialist feminist newspaper published in the 80s and thinking where is the off-line feminist press like that in our movement?? i want to put out something which is feminist in perspective, but that doesn't use feminism as a blinker against other oppressions. which takes an intersectional approach in all its content and requires everyone who writes for it to demonstrate an understanding of the connection of all oppressions. and also, i'm not interested in judging people by whether they adhere to a feminist language/identity as a way of deciding which women's voices should be foregrounded. i want people to read about the activists who are organising around health care, education, asylum seekers rights, violence, older women's rights, i don't care if they call themselves feminists or not.'

If you're gonna be at Ladyfest, come along, and join the discussion...

The Workshop will be held on the Sunday of Ladyfest (9th November), between 2pm and 3pm.

Details about the location of Ladyfest Manchester 2008, and all other events occuring as part of the festival can be found on their website

Art XX

Today in the post I recieved a copy of the U.S. Art Magazine, Art XX.

I was lucky enough to contribute to this, the magazine's first issue, with a written piece on the nature of feminist art.

Also featured in the first issue are articles on and artwork by: Nicole J. Georges, Enid Crow, Maya Hayuk, Scream Club, Christa Holka, Femina Potens, Rhiannon Argo, Lex McQuilkin, Paulina McFarland, Invincible, Cristy Road, Samantha Purdy, Gemma Correll, Katherine Montalto, and so much more.

And I sat here this evening having had a crappy day of uncertainty, depression, and contemplation, and read the magazine cover to cover.
I felt an overwhelming sense of feminist and queer community, as communicated and actively demonstrated through our creative pursuits. Creative pursuits carried out by women so inspiring, so focussed, so dedicated to voicing and creating spaces for the voicing of individuals in communities that make my heart burn with desire and pride.
I am so grateful to Paulina, Lex, and Francesca for welcoming me into the Art XX fold and making me feel a part of this community of support, love, and inspiration.

UK Female Comic Zinesters

I have been asked to compile/curate a comics exhibition as part of January 2009's ‘Zinefest’ at The Women’s Library, London.

Due to the nature of the event, it has been decided that this exhibition shall focus on artwork found within comics zines, and self-published comics.

The exhibition will contain whole zines, blown up pages from individual zines, and original artwork from creators.

The exhibition is to specifically focus on UK female comics zine creators, to celebrate and recognise tremendous home-grown talent.

Are you interested in contributing to this exhibition?

If you are interested, and I hope you will be, there are a few ways to get involved:

1) Send a copy of any comics zine you have made that you would like to feature in the exhibition (both current, and past zines are all welcomed – there’s no date/age specifications)

After the exhibition, all zines will be added to the Women’s Library Zine Archive, and details of the zine will be added to the online zine database, for others to view. If you are happy for your zine to be a part of this archive, please include a note of the date, and place of publication so that it can be correctly archived.


2) Send a particular (blown up?) page from your zine
(s)/online zine that you would specifically like featured in the exhibition


Zinefest is part of a broader ‘magazines’ exhibition being held at the Women’s Library in January called ‘Between The Covers’.

As part of the zine artwork exhibition, I invite you to submit a piece of original comics artwork - drawn especially for zinefest - on the theme of magazines and zines -- eg. a drawing or strip perhaps around a personal experience with a magazine/zine in some way (good, bad, funny, inspirational, etc. as a child/teen/adult etc.) This could even be a piece about an inspiring feminist magazine or zine you have read.


As part of Zinefest, there are many workshops and skills-sharing events occurring throughout the day.

I am asking for individual creators to send me written hints and tips, and ‘how to’ advice to include within the exhibition from comics zinesters to inspire and encourage the further creation of comics zines in the audience.

There is the potential for these ideas, hints and tips to be incorporated into the ‘zine making 101’ workshop to be held at the beginning of the day [get in touch too if you’d like to speak as part of this workshop, from a comics zine perspective].

Also, there will be general tables/supplies left out during the whole day so that anybody can make mini-comics and zine pages, so any hints and tips you can offer will be useful for individuals starting from scratch.


Send me details of anybody else you think would like to be or should be included in such an exhibition who I may have overlooked.

Full details of the event:

Many thanks for reading, I hope we can create a terrific exhibition really exploring all the amazing comics zines that we create.

I would love to hear from you, if possible, by the first couple of weeks in December 2008 so that we miss the Christmas rush!

All the best, Melanie xox
