My last post was about a little zine I made to go with my comps.  Recently I also helped make another zine called “How We Survive” through the GSC.  We made it for the SpeakUp! Against Sexual Violence, which was held here at Carleton last Thursday.  There was a really lovely article about it in the Carletonian that came out today.  The event involved students submitting written pieces about their experiences with sexual violence (with the option of submitting anonymously) and the pieces being read by students (some people read their own piece, some read anonymous submissions, some read submissions by students who didn’t feel comfortable reading their own piece).  It was extremely moving.  We had a much larger turn out this year than last, which really gives me hope about the number of Carleton students committed to ending sexual violence on our campus.

The zine we made to go along with the SpeakUp! is a book about the continuing process of survival at Carleton, made entirely by Carleton students/survivors.  We put a call out to all of our friends asking for tips about their process of survival, especially relating to being at Carleton.  The submissions we got back were really stellar and I think the finished product is really beautiful and powerful.    You can check out the publications page on the GSC website for more information about all of the office’s publications, including information about BODIES which comes out next week.
