Selfish is a biannual, mostly memoir magazine that encourages women to share true stories through unabashedly creative means. Issue two, “Just One More,” explores the ways in which women grapple with the countless moments that chip away at our innocence, the fluidity of identity, and the sweet futility of resisting change. Featuring the work of 30 contributors, “Just One More” takes readers through experiences of bewilderment, expansion, self-discovery, and more.
“A publication that celebrates the female story.” –Liska Jacobs, editor-in-chief of DUM DUM Zine
Selfish was created as a means to tackle the continuing lack of female presence in publishing as well as encourage women to engage in creative truth-telling. Issue one featured the work of 18 contributors in the form of poems, essays, and photos. Quimby’s is the fourth of seven stops in the “Just One More” tour. Alongside a reading from and discussion of the project, we will be encouraging female attendees to bring out their own work with the intention of publishing pieces collected on the road in our third issue, to debut next January.
