THE PARALLEL TEAM HAS LESS THAN 30 DAYS REMAINING TO REACH THEIR TARGET - if you were considering donating, now is the time to do so!

Parallel is going to be a new, quarterly (one published every 3 months) women’s magazine that focuses on life through a feminist lens. Aimed at late teenage to young adult women, Parallel hopes to be a magazine that can introduce young women to the concept of feminism through the use of informative articles, which will work alongside references to modern pop culture i.e. music, films, fashion, and art.It will hope to subvert the format of modern celebrity-centric and fashion-oriented magazines in order to discuss relevant issues in modern society.

Parallel will be liberating, and empowering. It will talk about activism and achievements. It will feature strong women who are really making a difference in this world. It will be intersectional in its content, discussing race, gender, sexuality, and disability. The key aim of Parallel is to initiate feminist discussion within mainstream society.

With issue one containing:

  • an interview with riot grrrl Kate Nash
  • articles about intersectionality and representation
  • conversations with new, upcoming feminist artists
  • zine reviews
  • an interview with body-positive feminist Harnaam Kaur
  • submissions from our readers
  • craftivism tutorials plus a discussion with Hannah Hill of Hanecdote
  • a round-up of the last quarter’s feminist news around the globe
  • music reviews
  • and much more!

Please consider donating to our Kickstarter to help fund us. The donations will be going towards everything from print costs, putting up a website, trademarking the name, travel expenses… the list goes on. We really need your help to get this ball rolling, so even if you can’t donate, PLEASE help us out by sharing the Kickstarter link wherever you can!

Great news - Norwich DIY & Zine Fair is DEFINITELY going ahead!

We just got word from the venue that everything is a-ok. I’m gonna head down there later to get some nice photos of the space and to check how many tables we will actually be able to fit. But that means if you want a space, NOW is the time to email! There is going to be a limited amount of room but Norwich is a city full of art students and creatives, so it’s going to be a busy, busy day. It’s also only a couple of hours away from London on the train or coach so don’t be reluctant to put your name down for a space if you’re based outside of Norwich - everyone is welcome and it’s really easily accessible. 

September 14th
11am - 4pm
The Birdcage
Norwich

pondicherry-baby asked: Hi, I'm really interested in getting a table at your fair - but because I'm at another convention up north the day before it's unlikely I'd be there until the early afternoon. Would this be ok?


Answer:

That would be fine, I could reserve a space for you and make sure it doesn’t get nabbed! If you email norwichdiyzinefair@gmail.com I can put you on the list and will be able to get in contact with you when I know table prices etc for sure x
