a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Things you'd like to swap- that's a great idea!
Worst zine I have received (free luckily) was one that was on A3 paper folded in an elaborate way you could never get back the same, not as a cool design feature, but because it seems they couldn't be bothered to cut it; and was just one huge injoke that you could make no sense of unless you were one of the 3 writers. I get handing it to your friends who understand the whole thing, but why bother giving it to strangers?
If other people contribute to your zine, why not include their postal and/or e-mail address, and maybe some info on what zine(s) they make? If I like their contribution, I would probably want to contact them.
