BUST is an alternative 'zine for women who don't buy into the Glamour and Vogue crap. BUST touts itself as "both a literary magazine and a chronicle of girl culture". It was founded in 1993 by two women who were sick of the corporate world, and it is the original grrl zine. The 'zine accepts unsolicited submissions, and titles of articles in the past have ranged from "Myth of the Black Butt" to "Boy-dello", and from "Bring Me the Head of Melanie Banderas" to "Would You Want This Man to Be Your Dog?" SueZVudu highly recommends this 'zine, as well as the book The BUST Guide to the New Girl Order. Try the website at www.bust.com.
