Print Issue Guidelines

Deadline for Dark 2013 issue: February 21st, 2014. 

Theme: "Lady (De)Constructed" 

We use the term lady in the title of our zine to refer to womyn, but not because we believe in adhering to a socially defined femininity. In fact it's exactly the opposite. We want you to define or redefine what lady means.
