Mamaphiles #4: Raising Hell

via Barnard Zine Library on 3/8/10
Mamaphiles, the mama and papa zine collaboration, announces issue #4, Raising Hell

The collaborative effort of thirty-four zine-making parents, this fourth issue of Mamaphiles takes on the wilder side of parenthood – from toddler-chasing to rabble-rousing. "Children are natural born hell-raisers," wrote Henry Miller. And as Mamaphiles' writers can attest, raising them can be an act of revolution. "Raising Hell" features stories of an activist family imprisoned in Israel and racial injustice in the U.S., as well as essays on the more quiet, inner struggles of parents striving to seek balance and creative expression, heal, make a family and support each other. Mamaphiles was initially conceived in 2004 as a cooperative effort of the zine-writing mothers who congregated online at Mamaphonic.com. Thirty-three contributors took on the theme of "Birth" and the resulting 132-page zine proved so successful that two more issues were produced, Mamaphiles #2 "Cutting the Cord" and Mamaphiles #3 "Coming Home."

Now, with Raising Hell, the Mamaphiles writers - each of whom produces a zine individually – have pooled their talent again to testify that while child-rearing may be hellish sometimes, it's the most rewarding hell out there.
