Portland Zine Symposium is in its eighteenth year, and is collecting submissions for a zine on the subject of Autonomy. We are thinking about legal emancipation, adulthood, bodily and political autonomy, cultural and social understanding of adulthood, responsibility, growing up, etc. For more info: follow the link.
