We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm getting nothing but weight loss adverts at the side, which made me laugh. I don't think this is the right crowd for preying on people's neuroses about the unwashboardlikeness of their stomachs hah.

There's actually a for real poetry contest focused on those books that accept terrible submissions, tell the authors that they rock, then try to get the authors to buy really over priced books.

Here's the info:

Now it's offering me a chance to get my poetry published for a low low fee! Wow, what an opportunity. Better give up this whole zine thing, and get writing some atrocious poetry, and save up for the publication fees, eh?
