a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Gianni Simone - As long as it's not MY zines you're copying, that's dandy. I don't write my zines to be "read by as many people as possible."
My sister writes several zines, and with one of them, Fight Boredom, she also gives flats to people who are interested in copying and distributing them around the world. I think that's really awesome, but it's not something I myself would do with my perzine.
i mean, maranda was asked in this thread to basically justify the reasons why she wouldn't want her zines distributed once she has stopped distributing them. i think it's disrespectful to ask her to justify that position. she's entitled to feel how she feels & want what she wants. if "all you have to do" is say what you want, you shouldn't also have to justify it eight ways from sunday & engage in arguments with people who use the "preservation" defense, like that's so new & original &mind-expanding
This is a really interesting discussion. I have kicked around the idea of copying some really old Utah zines that I feel deserve to be in the zine Library in Salt lake but I have never done it. I thought about sending my own copies but I can't seem to let myself part with them so I guess I'm at an impasse.
