Where We've Been, When the New Issue is Coming, and Calls for the Next Issue

I've been meaning to post this update for a long, long, looooong time. Somehow, I find enough to distract me into forgetting each day.

The zine has been on hiatus for the past near-year, while the publisher launches her book, "Everything I Need to Know About Motherhood I Learned from Animal House." (Which, by the way, you can now order here.)

If you're a subscriber, don't fret - you'll still receive all four of your issues!

The next issue ("The Great Outdoors") will be released in August, before the Portland Zinefest (we'll be there!) August 28-29, so look for it in the mail then!

The following issue will be themed, "A Mother's Work is Never Done," so dig out your stories of juggling work and parenthood, taking your kids to work, or the work you do around the house that no one notices or appreciates. How about how hard you worked to become a parent? Maybe tell about how your mother still works hard to care for you, even now that you're a parent, yourself. Make it real, make it funny, make it raw!

Oh, and we've made some slight changes to the submission guidelines. Check 'em out.
