We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Looking for Content Contributors to zine series & paperback titled "How to Self-Publish"

Hi Ziners, Self-Publishers, etc.,

I'm looking for contributors of content
on the ins and outs to those new
to self-publishing.
The zine will be text and illustration,
in fact it will be a zine for each section
of the table of contents below, or a zine series
on "How to Self-Publish."

If you want to contribute content (with due credit)
then let me know and then send it in when ready,
you can also add aspects not covered if you wish.

When the zine series is complete and printed and sent,
I also plan to put them together into a paperback.
I will give both the zine series and the paperback to
those who contribute as payment.

This may take several months to complete,
or it may come out in installments.

Also feel free to let me know if you'd like to
get a copy of it, the paperback will be on lulu.com
linked on my website rainflowers.org to the exact page listing,
or for the zine series you may mail $2 for the zine in
the sections series that you want to be mailed to you,
to: Donald R. Anderson
1426 Telegraph Ave. #2
Stockton, CA 95204

If you do a zine swap for one, it must be labeled with a note
so that I'm aware of it.

The sections so far are as below:
