All-new Sandy the Zine, issue number two is in the works, thanks to yours truly and my BFF, the brilliant Amanda Lee McCarty.

Spinsterism Sandy the Zine2

We’re seeking submissions, through our personal circles and in the Sandy community, on topics super-relevant to feminism today.  Amanda and I aren’t militant man-haters (yes, that needs to be said) or women’s studies-obsessed (well, kind of).  Mainly, we’re amateur sociologists exploring the gender card the universe dealt us, while being Professional Bosses, wild women, and making flower crowns when days get dark.

SPINSTERISM, choosing to live partner-free, is the idea Sandy contributors are mulling this issue. There are valid reasons to get married. And just as many reasons not to.

So why is SPINSTER a negative term, for gay and straight women alike?

We’re reclaiming the term SPINSTER in Sandy Issue Two, and accepting submissions that explore the benefits, challenges, and social implications of being a single woman in 2014… and beyond.

Here are the brand new SANDYtheZINE Submission Guidelines that detail how we’ll review, select, and edit your work.

1. Send your proposal for submission by April 15th, 5:00 PM PST to
2. We’ll contact all selected contributors by April 22nd
3. Final submissions due on May 15th, 5:00 PM PST
4.  If you’re sending a proposal for a written piece, 75 words max.
