Ms. Guided is a zine based out of Montreal aimed at promoting a feminist stance on traveling and what it means to be in a foreign place in our current society. We have an inclusive policy on contributions. So men, please do submit. We accept all types of written submissions (fiction, non-fiction, poems, essays, articles, rants) as well as photos and drawings.
The theme we propose for our third issue is "change of course." We're looking for creative material that explores this theme in an interpretive and critical way.
We have a few guidelines that we ask contributors to abide by:
Try to keep written pieces under 2000 words.
Submit all works (text and image) as an attachment with the title of the piece and the author in the file name (ex: Traveling_Firstname Lastname). Send attachments in doc or rtf format.
DO NOT SEND WRITTEN PIECES IN THE BODY OF AN EMAIL. THEY WILL BE RETURNED TO YOU UNREAD.
Images should be sent at 300 dpi.
All submission should be sent to ms.guided.zine@gmail.com (as a voluntary contribution).
Check us out online at msguided.org

Poetry for the People workshops

REMINDER: It's not too late to sign up for

Poetry for the People – A Community Poetry Workshop at Rhizome Café

Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:00pm, February 20th through April 16th

Words can change the world and save our lives. These are the words of June Jordan, founder of Poetry for the People. If you've always wanted to write poetry but felt too intimidated to try – this is the course for you. We will gather Wednesday evenings to read, write and talk about poetry that matters to those of us who work to create communities for change. The classes will provide a supportive forum for language play, bending and inventing traditions and for collaborative writing. We will produce a small anthology of student work and celebrate poetry month with a reading on April 23rd.

Pay what you feel.

To sign up, either phone Rhizome Café at 604-872-3166 or email Shauna Paull at threegals@shaw.ca.

We hope to see you here!

A note on our name:

In the botanical sense, a rhizome is a root system that some plants (like lilies and orchids and ginger and bamboo) use to spread themselves about. While the roots of most plants point generally downward, the rhizome is a horizontal root system that runs parallel to the surface of the ground. The plant sends shoots up from nodes in the rhizome, creating what look like many separate plants. These seemingly unrelated individuals are actually all connected, through a system that's not immediately visible to the eye.
