Zines for powerful, intuitive Bay Area women and the people who live in awe of them.


Content Queen came to be because Molly and Jane wished there were a magazine composed of nothing but their favorite parts of their favorite magazines. And so in 2018 they created their first zine, the eponymous Content Queen, by appropriating such formats as Seventeen’s quizzes, Vice’s Dos & Don’ts, New York’s Approval Matrix, and JANE’s Blind Date as vehicles for satirizing Bay Area “girlboss” culture. From there, inspiration knew no bounds, as the two scribes spun off additional titles—most recently as of January 2024, The Secret Language of Birth Order and Employee Picks.

Content Queen’s zines are purposefully evocative of another time, transporting you into the worlds of a ’90s dELiA*S catalog, a late-1960s Whole Earth Catalog, or a lustful 2000s Cosmo. With every photocopy, CQ aims to honor the forever-special feeling of holding a print periodical in your hand, and pay tribute to those way-better halcyon days of print journalism.

Content Queen’s zines are proudly created in Figma and released in print only.
