We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm looking for zinesters in Florida. I was thinking about possibly doing a zine show around the Tampa Bay area but I'm having a hard time finding anyone. Trying to figure out if there is a scene round these parts that I'm not finding or if it just doesn't exist yet. Thanks!

yes you should definitely do a zine show!!! i live in florida-orlando area.. i used to live in tampa and i had a hard time finding anyone cool as well..but yes do a zine show in tampa and ill be there..orlando might be somewhat of a better area, there isn't really a zine scene but there is a bit more culture for independent arts than than i found in tampa..
I think you're right. There is seriously no where here in Tampa that sells zines. We used to have a Park Ave CD's but that was like nine years ago. Anyhow, I have traded zines with someone in Orlando recently. The zine was called GlassHead. I can email her. I'll also keep searching for any Florida zinesters. I have a couple more places I can think of looking.
I would just need some help if it were to be in Orlando. I have little to no connections there. Feel free to let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks
yes...

Cool, thanks a lot. I'll check them out.
Wow, I'm surprised I've never been there. That's really helpful, thanks a ton
No, I'm definitely not sarcastic. I'm sorry, it's my dumb picture. It hides my enthusiasm. I need to change it but my internet connection is lame - it won't let me upload photos. I'm serious. I really am surprised I've never been there, and also by the help. I didn't think I'd have any or many replies to my post.
Do you know if there's anyway to contact those people in the zine wiki? I'm sorry, this may be a dumb or fruitless question.

Thanks again. I'm gonna get to work
I've already mentioned this, but I'll mention it again: I'm in Tampa, and would love to help get something started in the Tampa Bay area or anywhere within a reasonable driving distance.
For anyone interested, living in FL, we finally started a group -'Sunshine State Zinesters'. Please check it out. It's really helped a lot with meeting other FL zinesters and slowly organizing a zine party

My friends and I here in Naples would come to a zine fest in Tampa or Orlando! If you think Tampa is lame, visit Naples.
Yeah we're thinking about doing one in Tampa close to the end of August. :)
