Compilation Zine for International Zine Month

In celebration of International Zine Month for July 2009 I am creating a compilation zine about how YOU got into zines. The zine will be titled, "ENTRY POINT" aka "How did I get myself into this mess?" It's time to spill your guts about how Sassy Magazine, Riot Grrrl, the book Hard Love, etc turned you into the zinester you are today.

The format will be 1/2 sized. What I would like is for each zinester wanting to take part to submit their own ONE page of a 1/2 zine, already layed out. I think it will give an interesting look to have all of these zinesters from all around the world use their own style and layout techniques to talk about how they got into zines. If you want to be able to be contacted, or even promote your own projects, please list your contact information on your page.

I would prefer that these are mailed to me so i can paste them all ready to go in a mock up. Emailing is also an option, but remember the quality just won't be as good if i have to print it out.

Each person who has an entry and any zine distros interested will receive a "flat" from me. The idea is to give this zine away for FREE in the month of July. You can make your own copies to give out to as many people as possible.

If you wish to participate please submit your piece NO LATER than April 30, 2009. I will do the mock up in May and i will ensure everyone has their flat at the beginning of June so they can get their copies ready for International Zine Month in July.

Also let me know about any activities that are happening during International Zine Month and we can get it posted on the International Zine Month site.
Hey, this is a really cool idea. Count me in.
What a great idea! Expect an envelope from Sheffield soon.
Just bumping this... I haven't gotten any entries as of yet... i know it's still early tho!
I am so IN! I will work on something soon and get it to you.

Just to double check and make sure I'm speaking the lingo, by 1/2 sized, do you mean a 8 1/2 x 11 page folded in half? So a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 page?

I'll send a few dollars to help out too.

Yippee! Thanks for having such a great idea.
You are exactly right about the size, Chantel! 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper folded in half!

Feel free to please cut & paste the original post and spread the word as well!
