About the Apocalypse Girls

The Girls Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse came about over Twitter. There was general agreement that a group of such well-prepared women should share their knowledge with the world to help worthwhile survivors everywhere make the best of the end of the word (as we know it).

Also, it sounded like a laugh.

Site was designed by Ro Smith, additional widgets by K.A.Laity, start up and maintenance by Adele ‘hagelrat’ Wearing. GGSA runs on love, enthusiasm and the amazing efforts of the writers, artists and bloggers involved.

Lock and load.

    Dear Apocalypse Girls,

    I love your blogs! I am leaving you this comment because recently, I launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to produce a magazine of Post-Peak short fiction, articles, and artwork. Post Peak is designed to provide a platform for people interested in discussing issues relating to the upcoming Post Peak World. I am hopeful that, since this project seems right up your ally as Post Peak is definitely an apocalyptic senario, you might mention the project here and/or in your blog so that we could approach a wider audience with our project. Not only are we looking for financial donations to the Kickstarter, we’re also looking for submissions of stories, essays or artwork from those interested!


    Thank you for your time and support, as well as your awesome collection of creative works!
