Oh hey, you make zines? That's cool! We love zines.
If you make zines that relate to sexual justice in some way, they might be a good fit for our collection! We like to carry zines that include useful, accurate information on topics like consent, sexual wellness, overcoming sexual shame, etc. Personal zines that discuss these kinds of topics are also welcome. Our favorite zines are a mix of text and art and contain hand drawn and/or handwritten elements. We are sex-positive/sex-neutral, fat-positive, kink-positive, gender-affirming, anti-racist, anti-classist, anti-ableist, and pro-sex worker rights. No zine is too small.
Address zine samples to:

Cambridge, MA 02138
Include the following information in the package:
Please don't be sad if we don't accept your zine. It's probably great! But we aren't able to carry all the zines that are sent to us.
We don't accept zine submissions digitally.
1. It is your responsibility to make sure we have your current email address to reach you.
2. By submitting your zine(s) for consideration, you consent to us using images and quotes from your zine(s) on our website, social media, and Etsy store. For shorter zines, this may include a photograph of every page of your zine.
3. Let us know if you want us to tell you that we received your zine(s). Otherwise, we will only contact you if we decide to carry them. Feel free to email us if you don't hear from us.
4. If we do accept your zine(s), we promise to love them as our own.
Here's how we pay you:
We make payments via PayPal or Venmo. If you need to be paid a different way, let us know when you submit your zines for consideration.
We offer two options for distributing zines:
Option 1: You ship us completed zines.
If your zine(s) is accepted, you are welcome to send us up to 10 copies of each zine at a time. Zines should be folded/bound and ready to be read.
Option 2: We print/fold/bind your zines.
If your zine(s) is accepted, you are welcome to send us a PDF so that we can print/fold/bind it for you.
