We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

So who on your scene is a real Zine Hero? Someone that contributes above and beyond, is always helpful, a trailblazer or just unspeakably cool?

Claiming England as a scene, I've got to say FootPrinters are scene heroes. They print zines and a few other bits and bobs, before I found them the cheapest quote I got for Beat Motel was over £1000, I think they did it for about £250! Plus they are a workers co-op, so all cool and groovy in that respect too!

FootPrinters, I bow my head to thee!

I third the nomination LB, Sage and Ciara- they run my favorite distros and they all have really cool zines - overall, awesome kids!

As for my own...I really enjoy what Sinoun does! She has breathtaking zines and came up with thetradingnetwork.org woohoo!

Bri Zine and Sarah Arr! make some sweet tasty zines. <3
Wow, I didn't know people could check out the zines and I could see if they were checked out. Pretty cool!

Eeveryone above, thanks for making zines an integral part of the city's culture and history.

And YAY for Multnomah County Library, where I work, which has a circulating zine collection, features (and pays) Zinesters Talking, and puts out a list of PDX Zine locations. http://www.multcolib.org/books/zines/
Currently, these folks, Sonya Green (Library Thing), Clinton Watson (Salt Lake City Public Library), Milo Miller (QZAP), Jerianne Thompson (Linebaugh Public Library, Zine World, ZineWiki), and Jenna Freedman (Barnard College Library/zine librarian guru). They all gave the attendees at the Seattle Zine Librarian Unconference great hope of cooperation and a positive future in zinesters working together towards an open source universal cataloging system that will someday make zines a lot easier add to public libraries and infoshops and make available as a valuable resource:

I second Dan's nomination, and would like to add everyone who attended the (first annual?) Seattle Zine Unconference at Hugo House and the "Zine Librarian Zine 3" Zine Reading and Release Party at Cafe Allegro this weekend. It was truly inspirational to see how many creative and intelligent people care about providing better community access to zines. Bravo!
