Hello, dear reader! I have some questions for you. I’ve been running Echo Zines (and Echo Records, to release a few tapes) for 20 years now and while I’m certainly not out of ideas for ongoing and upcoming projects, I’m also wondering about what YOU think, want, and expect! What would you like to see from Echo Zines in 2022?
Hello there! How are you? Are you enjoying International Zine Month too? Here is a little overview of the things I did so far this month and things I still plan to do:
Did you know you can subscribe to this blog? Just write your email address in the box on the right and click “sign me up” and you’ll get all the ECHO zine news delivered in your emailbox. —>
Subscribing means you’ll receive notifications of new blog posts by email, almost like a newsletter. You’ll be the first to hear about all the announcements of new zines and zine events, recommended reading lists, (feminist) zine scene reports, playlists, DIY resources, and more. And of course you can unsubscribe at any time. Also, very useful if you’re not on Facebook or Instagram or if you want to minimise you social media use. Emails are almost as good as handwritten letters! 🙂
Check out Vagina Dentata’s brandnew blog!
In the list you can find lots of other interesting projects and collectives all over Belgium and the Netherlands. Want to be active? Want to support feminism? Join them! You can also send an ad if you’re looking for fellow feminists for your group/project.
As you may or may not know, I also write for the feminist collective blog De Tweede Sekse. I recently published a series of articles there about feminist media criticism and activism. It’s written in Dutch and you can read it here:
