We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I can't think of ANYTHING for my zine! I'm so blank! Does anyone have any ideas on what kinda stuff (other than poems and comix) I can put in my zine? Cut at the moment it's a "poclet zine" but my cousin and I are looking for more material, so we can make it a half-page booklet.

Any ideas?

What kind of stuff do you already have in your zine?

Maybe, since you're in Texas, you could do a little reaction to this story. I was even thinking about talking about it.

For added material, just look over the comments...
what did you dream about last night?
any ghost stories?
a book / movie review
comment on something local in your news
write a letter to someone

i'm full of ideas.. lol, whether or not they are good ones tho.. hehe
This made me laugh a bit, but only in the sense that I know I would enjoy reading something like that. Great idea!

A public dream journal actually sounds pretty nifty. So does the letter idea. The reviews would be good too, as you wouldn't have to pretend to not be biased. I'd headline every one of them with "The most biased fucking outlook on" and then fill in the blank with what you're reviewing. :P

ooh, i second this! i think it's way more important to have less content that you're really proud of and that others will be interested in reading than a ton of random little things put together. and don't force it just to put out another issue.

If you can't think of what to write, just wait. Don't force yourself to make a zine just for the sake of it if you're not going to be proud of the content later.
I'm really diggin on the dream and letter thing. the review would be something my other writer (lol, sound all proff.) would be interested in. :) Thanks guys. You're all so great here. :D

You can always fall back on the rapidwrite...just set your timer for 10-15 minutes or so and write without stopping...you will have lots of seemingly unrelated thoughts. You can either publish them as is (I have done that) or find a few interesting nuggets to expand.
that sounds pretty cool. i might try that for next months "issue." cuz we've got everything for this month...except one page but i'm drawing something for it. :) thanks you all are such great help

Hi, are you still stuck? I've just finished a little zine with exercises for helping with writer's block. More info here if you're interested - http://sandylovesyou.com/marbles - we can do a trade if you like. :)
