We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Hey Mini Zine Folks!
Here are the guidelines for the 3rd MINI ZINE FOLKS GROUP SWAP!
1- Between now and April 30th, make a "new" mini zine. Size is up to you, but i think as a general rule, mini zines should be smaller than 5" x 8" / 13cm x 20cm (approx). Other than that size and shape is all up to you!
2- If you really want to participate but cannot make an entire new zine, that is fine, but try to trade something that you have done recently. I am really encouraging everyone to try to make a new zine, something fresh and new to share with the group. That's why I am giving this swap a over a months time.
3- Send me a message with your name and address if you want to participate. I will compile a list of the folks who are participating and then distribute the list back to everyone involved in the trade.
4- On May 1st 2011 send out one copy of your zine to everyone on the list. I realize postage can be expensive when sending zines overseas, so PLEASE take this into consideration before joining the swap. If you join and then feel at any time that you cannot participate for any reason, PLEASE tell me right away, so I can inform everyone involved in the swap, nothing is worse than trading zines and getting nothing in return.
5- BE CREATIVE, BE AWESOME, MAKE A GREAT ZINE!!! I think that's a given for most zine folks, but put effort into this, second only to not getting a zine in trade is getting a zine that little or no effort was put into.
6- If you have any ideas about the trade. Let me know, we can add them if we think, as a group, that it would be a good idea.

I am really looking forward to getting a bunch of zines (and right before the holidays, so a cool present too, for whatever holiday you , or don't, celebrate!) from all you awesome mini zine folks!

Cheers

Jethro

Is the 4th swap the "How To" zine or something entirely different?

I've been super bust since I last posted, but to my count I am still missing three zines from this swap......a little disappointing to me, but i guess that's gonna happen. If you were in the third swap and you have yet to send out your zine, please let us know if you will or not, so we at least know. Send me a private message if you want. I am working on a lot of projects right now, including the Mini Zines Folks Collaberation zine "Summer Vacation 2011" but I plan to do a 4th swap at the end of this month. If you were part of the third swap and didn't send out a zine I won't be including you in the 4th swap. Sorry to be harsh but I have to draw the line somewhere. I'll call the 3rd swap closed for now, thanks to everyone who participated and sent out some great zines! Doreen I am working on my contribution for the Collaboration zine hope to send it to you soon!!
Yep the 4th upcoming swap will be the "How-To' swap!

Ok, I'm in for that one. If the due date is still the end of this month, tho, I might be a week or two late. I can't seem to get my projects organized.

I havent posted the fourth trade yet so no worries, I will probably do it at the beginning of September, as that will give me some time to finish up some projects and get ready to do a new zine!

The deadline will probably be the end of September / Beginning of October
