We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!

I just finished the first issue of Concisely, a (maga)zine of stories under 500 words. It's got eight stories and it's 20 pages and 8.5x5.5 inches. It's $3 shipped, +$1 for copies shipped outside the United States. There's some samples and ordering info on the website: http://conciselymagazine.blogspot.com/. Submissions are also be collected for the second issue, though people should understand that it's being approached with a traditional magazine approach of only accepting a portion of what's sent in.
Hi all!!

They're not exactly new, but the selling of those zines may help in the making of my new issue of Arcane #4. There is a zine and crafts fair here in Québec on December 19 and I'really want to have it out for this, but I'm very broke (and looking for jobs, but even if I started working NOW, I wouldnt get paid soon enough!!) so if you are interested and can afford a 'buy', here is what I have available: (I love trades and will be up to do some after the holidays when I have been working a bit and I can buy stamps & stuff!!)

I have a few issues left of "Girl w/Cat" #1. The premiere issue chronicles the loss of my cat Malenikiy, who died accidentally in April 2004. The zine was done in 2006. It is in the form of a funeral prayer, with chapters: Dies Irae, Lacrmosa, Calamitatis et Miseriae, Libera Me, Requiem Aeternam (those are latin words actually used in funerals). It has photos, some song lyrics, and a lot of deep-felt writing about the grief, remembrance and recovery. I have THREE copies left!! So please send me a message here before ordering, to make sure you get your copy :)
It's 40 pages, 1/2 letter - Canada-US: 4$, International 5$, postpaid.

I got 6 issues of "Orange & Blue" #0. Even though "Orange & Blue" is out of print, the intro issue #0 is more like an introduction to my world, so it is still relevant. I give a glimpse into what it is to be a minority who speaks french everyday in the mostly anglophone world of zines and the dilemmas and choices you have to make in this perspective. It also presents many aspects of my town, Québec City/Lévis (on the south shore), my neighbourhood, my friends,my everyday life, cassette tape recording, diary writing,some Québec facts. It has nice "carbon paper" illustrations that I traced onto the pages of text. It was very well-liked when it came out in 2005! I have SIX copies left. All the text is typewritten.
It's 36 pages, 1/2 letter - Canada-US: 4$, International 5$, postpaid.

Arcane Magazine is a french-language zine from Québec City. It talks about local music & art, street art, graffiti, poverty, social injustice, punks, homeless people, the environment, movies from Quebec and elsewhere, good books, life and society in general.

Of course if you order many zines the postage costs will go down :) Contact me with what you'd like to order!
It would help me a lot if people ordered some zines as I am still making copies at the copy shop and it's quite expensive :/
I applied at an artist collective where if I am accepted, I'll be able to make copies for cheaper so, more trades, more free zines and color covers! Fingers crossed!

Hello Everyone! I've been working on a new zine side project and the first issue is done! It's a series I'm calling Herb Skool, and the first issue is a one page zine all about the herb Mullein. Each issue will feature a specific herb, with medicinal info, hystory, uses, etc. It's a project to help expand my knowledge of herbal medicine, sparked by the loss of my friend Byron to cancer. So...if you would like this zine, mail me one stamp or a trade.

The second issue of my zine is called I'm A Transvestite. It's all about (queer) sexuality and living the way you are.

I'm all for trades and of any kind!

I have a new issue of Tazewell's Favorite Eccentric out. It's issue #9. Quarter sized, 20 pages, b&w. It's about activist burnout, relationships (duh, it's a perzine), drugs, daddy issues, mental health, and hope. It's $2 via mail, $2.50 on the internet via paypal, or a perzine trade.
My latest issue of Glass Head is here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=37960473 Take a peek and let me know what you think. Don't give me "It's nice" I want real comments. Thanks.

Excuse the crummy cellphone pic! AMB#10 is a minizine that I made back in August for the Portland Zine Symposium -- I came back with some extra copies & then moved, leaving all those extras packed up only to be rediscovered almost half a year later.

AMB#10 is about my grandmother, a survivor of incestuous sexual abuse, & how our shared histories of sexual abuse have informed our relationship. It's 20 pages & small (maybe 4 inches by 3 inches? I don't have a ruler on hand...) You can buy a copy for 75 cents (postage paid!) via PayPal (send payments to sewtrue@gmail.com). If you're interested in trading or buying through snail mail, just send me a message or leave a comment on my page. The content of this zine is potentially triggering.

Here's an excerpt:

My grandmother is a survivor of prolonged incestuous sexual abuse. My family spends a lot of time finding ways to not talk about this, to navigate around it. Even now, I find myself thinking about striking it from the record, of saying, "Why make that a part of this?" But I've come to a point in my own life where I think it's important to dig these things up, to dust them off. To understand not to fear them.
