About the Zine
The PROBLEMATIQUE Zine is an early-development project by and for adult content creators to build connections to work towards similar goals. Our intentions with the PZ project is to release multiple sets of themed issues to raise money for multiple causes chosen by fandom. The first themes and cause were chosen by the staff, but if the project gains the necessary support, we look forward to working on behalf of fandom to help adult content creators platform their fan works for good causes!
This project is independently produced by an extremely small amateur team. Email us at [email protected] for more information on how you can help our cause!

Please get in contact with the staff if you plan on formatting your own finished spreads for the zine. Thank you!
For all NSFW artwork, please provide an additional censored version of your content (for the preview version of the zine). You may censor it with watermarks, pixels, or anything else, so long as anything graphic or nude is fully covered.
For the version of your text submission you submit to the zine, use 14pt Arial font with basic (bold, italics, underline) formatting. Please submit a .docx or .odt file.
If you're submitting a longer work of text (3-6k+ words), please create a preview for your submission and format your own .pdf or .docx file to be placed in the DLC folder. Feel free to format your preview however you like! DLC content can be as long as you want - even multi-chapter.
Use your best judgment on how to format the content based on provided information, or get in contact with us at [email protected] for additional assistance!
What We're Looking For
All of our themes are multi-fandom, multi-ship, and multi-kink, so don't hesitate to find a place for your content in this project! Our goal is to showcase the creative works adult fandom has to offer, alongside a variety of resources, information, and ideas for how to safely and transparently navigate these spaces!
Art and Stories
Fan Content AND Original Content
SFW, NSFW, and Graphic works
AUs, crossovers, and canon-friendly content
Long-form works (multi-chapter fics, multiple versions of the same piece, etc)
Anything and everything creative and kinky!
Articles on fandom's history and connection to the themes and ideas present
Journals that add perspective to the theme or its surrounding discourse
Interviews with creators, fandom leaders, and allies
Resources related to the theme
The DLC Folder
Every issue comes with its own DLC folder, where our submitters can opt to include other versions of their content available for readers to download.
Participation in the DLC folder is not required.
Long comics, art with multiple similar versions, additional watermarks and commission info - the DLC folder is the perfect spot for illustrators to get creative and promote their content their own way!
We recommend fic writers submit two versions of their fics - one for the zine, and one for the DLC folder. The DLC version can be a .pdf you've formatted yourself however you like, and can even be multi-chapter!
For anyone submitting DLC-exclusive content (especially content that doesn't fit inside a .pdf), please submit a 'preview' version to be published in the zine - a still image works fine. Get creative!
We currently have slots open for all our themes. Please contact us at [email protected] to claim your slot! Once accepted, you can format an image to be placed in the .pdf that includes any links, information, or products you're advertising! Refer to our Content Formatting section for more information.

SET ONE: Prostasia
Deadlines: ON HOLD (TBA)
Prostasia Foundation is a child protection organization that focuses on an inclusive evidence-based approach to CSA prevention. They ally themselves with many communities, including communities in fandom and NSFW spaces, such as Age Players, those who create/consume Slash Fiction, and the BDSM community - all for their strong cultures of informed consent & maintaining healthy boundaries between adults and children. That's why we're proud to present the first three themes: Age Play, Slash Fiction, and BDSM.
A Word from the Founder
"The human imagination knows no limits, and fandom is all about exploring it in a creative and fun way. But responsible fans also understand that their fantasies may not be for everyone, and especially that some of them may be inappropriate for younger age groups. That’s why Prostasia Foundation is so pleased about the very thoughtful approach that the PROBLEMATIQUE staff have taken in developing their zine. The PROBLEMATIQUE team have it exactly right when they say that taboo and triggering subjects shouldn’t be off limits for fandom—but that they should be properly marked so that mature fans can actively choose whether or not to be exposed to them. As far as I am concerned, the steps that PROBLEMATIQUE is taking to make this a reality are first rate, we are honored to be the first beneficiary of the donations they raise." - Jeremy Malcolm, Founder of Prostasia
