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!

Anatomical Heart #8 is a perzine / mental health zine.

i have a new issue of "love letters to monsters" out as of august 2010. it's a split with my friend & next-door neighbor (& long-time zinester) ailecia. she wrote "alabama grrrl" #9 & i wrote "love letters to monsters" #3. it's eighty quarter-sized pages, pretty heavy on the text. i wrote about topics including: moving to kansas, being a grad school widow, closing down my zine distro, becoming interested once again in writing fiction, the convoluted meaning of "community" in a punk/anarchist context, self-care & mental health, physical disability, tenants' rights, my father's unexpected death & my mother's unexpected conversion to islam, & more. ailecia wrote about what she wishes she would have known before enrolling in graduate school, tips on successfully integrating school with the rest of your life, grieving a friend who passed away too young, the excesses within the punk scene that lead to a culture of self-destruction, the importance of feminism, fat-positivity, & queer solidarity in punk scenes, an open letter to radical kids in lawrence calling them out on unchecked misogyny & violence, & more. we are both writing from an early 30s feminist personal perspective.

the zine costs $3 (anywhere in the world, including postage), which can be paid via paypal to learningtoleaveapapertrail@hotmail.com or mailed in cash to me at:
ciara xyerra
1126 tennessee st. #5
lawrence KS 66044

trades may be acceptable. i like politically-tinged personal zines. drop me a line privately to set something up.

distros are also welcome to order copies. wholesale is $1.50 each (again, including postage, & anywhere in the world), which can be paid in the same ways listed above. i also accept checks made out to "ciara xyerra".

(sorry i don't have a photo!)
I finished my new zine, roots of hope 2, about traveling through Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica, as well as other traveling stories from other places in the past, like ireland and belize. i traveled in central and south america for about eight months. i will be making another zine about Colombia, Ecuador and Peru that I am hoping to finish by the end of the year, but putting them together in one zine would have been too epic, too long, and unstapleable. The zine is 70 pages quarter sized, a lot of text but some graphics and pictures too!

if you want a copy, you can paypal me $3.50 and i will mail it to you! international postage prices please inquire...

I managed to complete a zine cliché and write about a Greyhound bus trip. I spent three days traveling and covered 2763 miles between Baton Rouge, LA to Portland, OR. I tried my best to do a whole lot of ignoring on the way but whether I liked it or not, ended up meeting some interesting folk. Next time I think I'll fly.

£1 in person, £1.70 w/ postage. Paypal to stevejipwit@hotmail.com or send concealed cash to -

The new issue of MUSEA #177 is now on the musea.us website. It is the CHARACTERS issue PLUS we have a link to all the LOST TAPES (note the first song on the list, Walking in the Field, does not work, never has). Musea.us for all musea zine articles and issues.

For a print copy, send an SASE or trade to me.
This issue is all about 'characters', people that stand out for one reason or another - story poems about all kinds. The cover photo features a woman in a genie costume about to rub a magic lamp. Can anyone identify the woman in the photo?
Coded message - some of you who receive Musea issues by mail will get a special stamp - look for it.
