Sweet-thang is a zine for and by Black folks, centring and and celebrating Black womxnhood in all its shapes and forms. It is a creative safe space for themes of resistance and activism, for free artistic expression. Our aim is to amplify the voices of these groups and celebrate emerging artists/writers!

Sweet-thang was created at the end of 2016 by Zoe Thompson, who loves everything about zine culture, writing and publishing but always felt alienated by the lack of women of colour, particularly black women, in these spaces. Sweet-thang has come about from this frustration, and its ethos will always be to allow under-represented artists to share their artwork in a space that isn’t dominated by over-represented voices.

This zine will provide you with beautiful poetry, thought-provoking essays and amazing visuals surrounding any theme, and will generally just be a sweet lil’ publication for all to enjoy. Stay sweet and stay tuned x x x
