I started Bitchfest last summer when I basically had nothing to do. I started to read zines and thought that it would be cool if I made one. Plus I read Francesa Lia Block's Zine Scene and she made it sound really cool and easy so I thought why don't I give it a shot! My first issue was less than 10 pages full size, black 'n white. Certainly not a masterpiece. But I try to do the best that I can and I try to do better with every issue. This website however is a different  issue but I'm working on that too.   Bitchfest is a feminist/poetry/ queer zine. Does that make since? I deal with a lot of poetry because I love it, some have called me and the zine feminist because  of the writing, and queer because I like to play around with lesbian erotica, semi-pornograpic writing and stuff like that. I'm a very sexual being and I refuse to edit myself.  A lot of what I say might have a "lesbian" feel to it because I think I'm in that stage of my life where I'm all giddy and happy about my sexuality.
         Bitchfest is targeted towards females who write poetry, essays, hell,  journal entries, have kick-ass artwork to show off or anything creative to show off. Especially ZINES! I started this site to connect to other people that feel the way I do about poetry and writing outside of the mainstream culture. To have a place to voice my opinions and hear  what others have to say. most of all to have a place to show my poetry and thoughts and to see others poetry and  thoughts.
