a place for zinesters - writers and readers

In order to familiarize myslf with more of you quicker and hopefully become more social/active on here.I thought I would ask you what zine(s) do you produce and what kind of zine is it.

Squid Pro Quo is kind of a punk rock zine, with interviews and stories on bands mostly (The Queers, The Methadones, Shot Baker, etc...). There are record reviews as well as cartoons in there too. I just released issue #1, it's 14 pages and that's about it! Hope you like it!
I have been doing "Grrrl Noire" Zine, a per/political zines for 8 years. I also have a few issues of "Cyclette", a two wheel bike zine about women riders. I also a few one offs, "Radio Radio" about music that has inspired me and "Goat Farm" which is a heavy metal chick zine.

My group GRRRL Zines A-Go-Go does "Let's DIY: 1 and 2" all about how to do your own zine workshops and community partnering and I recently published "Zine Capsule", a zine all about preservation and collecting.
These are the zines I currently produce:
I Want My Baby (the miscarriage zine) all about my miscarriage in March '04.
Dirty July- a perzine
Hanna's Pink Pajamas- my 24 hour zine / perzine (july 2007)

And other zines I may be known for:
Rebel in Magenta 1- 16 (1996- 2004)
SBN (1994- 1995)
What Comes Around Goes Around (2000- 2002)

Musea is the name of my zine. I started it in 1992 as a monthly zine to promote the best of indie arts and media, and to attach the abuses of corporate art and media. Since then I've published a few chapbooks, and started the Zine Hall of Fame - see it on Zinewiki or my website musea.us.
Squatthrust- A perzine made from the pages of my ongoing journal. Boring day to day details filled with drawings of weird creatures, comics, doodles and designs. I just did a relaunch of it with issue 2 (44 pages) about the theme of becoming (a teacher, parent, homeowner). The next issue being worked on now is about walking. I am still writing daily crap but I am including bigger articles about walking (politics of our town and attitudes toward pedestrians and cyclists, as well as philosophical musings about the practice of walking vs. cars. More details over at:

Hello! I make single issue zines, my previous ones being The Non-Edible Publication (which was cookie recipes and musings on star wars), What It Was Like To Work In A Nursing Home (detailing my previous experiences as a carer in nursing homes) and Kenneth (a perzine). Right now I'm creating a zine about my experience with high school politics and an extended version of the Non-Edible (a greater collection of my recipes). But yeah, those are my zines. P.S. I omitted the ones that I now cringe at.
Hey, I produce a French zine called Park It Up Your Arse... it's about riot grrrl, punk, feminism, sex, music, art, gender issues and grrrl creativity in the underground French music scene. I also run Makin' Bombs Distro (DIY), which specialises in zines about all the above and more, my main aim being to promote women in the DIY underground music scene.
Why Riot Grrrl? well, it never really crossed the English channel, and it is quite difficult to find girl centered concerts, bands, radio shows... Park It Up Yer Arse was born from this frustration, as was Makin Bombs a year later, mainly to promote all the great french (but not only) grrrl zinesters I have met along the way. Makin' Bombs Distro is open to trades with zinesters and distros of all horizons and languages, so you don't have to be a girl/woman, write exclusively about feminism to exchange nor produce a zine in French, obviously. I'm looking forward to hearing from other zinesters and distro, I'm sort of running dry at the moment.

Little Riot Bitch
I just released a 44 page perzine art journal called Squatthrust 2. only got 20 left. They are pages from my journal working with the theme of "becoming." Becoming a parent, teacher, homeowner... Mixed with lots of weird drawings
