CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Contribute to POC Zine Project’s first zine series!
+++BY and FOR folks living at/below the poverty line+++
This zine series is being created in collaboration with Carey Fuller, a homeless mother and activist in the Seattle, WA area. We’re compiling relevant and practical knowledge.
We will distribute this free zine nationwide to those who need it, provide it as an e-zine for worldwide access and create an online community resource with real-time information.
This is an ongoing series. The first edition will be released in December of 2012, along with the website. We’ll share more details in the coming weeks.
WHO CAN SUBMIT
Anyone who has had experience living at or below the poverty line. We want your tips, stories and practical knowledge about how to survive and thrive.
We will also consider contributions from those with experience serving at-risk communities (shelter volunteers, social workers, etc.).
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE POC TO SUBMIT. However, we will make contributions from POC a priority in the editing process.
Evolving. We’ll be releasing a website dedicated to this project in the coming weeks, but for now we’re keeping this open.
BE AN ALLY
We’re looking for help getting the word out about this call for submissions, as well as with creating publishing + distribution partnerships.
Feel free to email and print this flyer for distribution wherever it makes sense to do so!

WHY IS THIS THE FIRST ZINE SERIES FROM POCZP?
Because more people are living at or below the poverty line than you realize.
Because often those in crisis resort to harmful decisions due to lack of information.
Because often government resources are difficult and/or impossible to access due to bureaucracy and misinformation.
Because most publications about poverty are focused on educating the general masses about poverty, not providing real-time, relevant and practical information for those living in poverty about how to survive and thrive.
Because mental survival is just as important and this is an experiment in building a DWO (Doing With Others) support network.
