Call for Submissions: Doykeit Zine

29 Nov

After receiving some submissions and speaking with some invested folks, I realized that this project is bigger than Sassyfrass (see previous call) and deserves more time and space. Now it is its own zine, and you get more time to submit!

We are seeking submissions with a central theme of the cross sections of Jewish and queer identity, and how those identities might inform an anti-Zionist or Palestinian solidarity politic. Some organizing frames include the concept of “doykeit” or “hereness,” diaspora, assimilation, the rhetoric of “self-hate,” decolonization of Judaism, and experiences of queer identity as a Jew or in a Jewish context. Submissions should take the form of personal narrative, whatever mediums you want to use to express that. Any JPEGs should be black and white, high contrast and at least 300 dpi. The issue will be 1/2 size and black and white. Send submissions to The deadline is February 20th! Submissions are staying open until I get enough to make a solid issue! So send me your stuff!

❤ jb

    Did I just miss closing date for this? No worries if so! I just saw a link to it today on The Shondes facebook. Hope you got lots of submissions and I look forward to seeing it. 🙂

        will do. I started writing a piece but it mostly ended up being about Jewish and an anarchist and the [gender]queer stuff hardly got a mention! so will write a new piece and get that to you.

    Yo! Does this Zine exist yet? It’s perfect for some research I’m doing. Also, pertinent to my life in general. Also, I’m just so glad this exists, so thank you everyone.
