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!

Brand new here, with a brand new zine called "Body Conscious Birth Control, an Introduction to the Fertility Awareness Method." As the name suggest, this zine is a very thorough introduction to FAM with a body-centric perspective. Really, this zine provides enough info to get started using FAM, although I highly recommend that this zine accompany one of the many awesome books about FAM.

Available as a printable .pdf (not the best quality) or request a copy by mail! I'm asking for a $2 donation, but no request will be refused!
A link to the .pdf can be found on my latest blog..

Dear zinesters,

The latest issue of our Pez metazine, devoted this time to Japanese Zines, has been just released. You can read it online and download it from this adress (in Spanish, Japanese and English, printed copies are coming soon):

It explores the history of zines in Japan from the seventies to the present, and gives an idea of the situation of Japanese zines right know, with a profusion of interviews and adresses.

I would also like to thank zinesters Andrea and Gianni Simone, from this same forum, who helped this issue come out.

Mr. T & The Lights Go Out Team

Hey everyone, I have a new issue of my personal zine "Breakfast at Twilight." It discusses moving to Baltimore, mental health issues, and wacky stories from the many day jobs I've had over the years. The bulk of the zine centers around my diagnosis of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder at the age of 26, and the difference that treatment has made in my life. There are also some illustrations, and every cover is hand-colored. $1, quarter sized, 32 pages. Trades are awesome (just email or PM first), or buy a copy at my distro site.

"I like kissing. I'd like to kiss most people. I can't really do that, so instead I'm going to write a zine about it."

I Can't Read Lips Unless They're Touching Mine is my first 24 hour zine, created on October 26th between about 10am and 10pm. (So technically a 12 hour zine!) I woke up that day thinking about kissing. Why humans kiss and how they started, my first kiss and my first KISS, when I realized kissing was good and the boys I'd kissed were just bad at it, awkward kisses, kisses I will never forget, who I want to kiss in the future...

I ended up with 24 pages (quarter sized) included musings on all of the above, and also some funny facts about kissing (It's illegal in Indiana for a man with a mustache to "habitually kiss human beings!") and quotations about kissing throughout. Also a brief note on seniors and bowling- I took a break. ;)

Covers are coloured by hand in crayon- each will be different.

$1 for Canada and US, $2 if you're International. You can purchase from my etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/romannumerals) or talk to me here. I can't trade at the moment due to finances but will be able to again by late November.
I'm in the process of making a half-sheet substantially long (10-12 page) zine of creative writing, and art and hit a major block abotu halfway through. This is the first zine I ever tried to make but in the process of being completely frustrated abotu that I made a super short minizine, Fragments.
It is a letter page folded into eigths with some haikus, drawing, and well basically fragments of thoughts. It's black and white with some hand drawn color. I'm not selling but am down for any trades- will trade for any type of zine, drawing, or your own writing- or you can mail me a stamped envelope.

This one may have my favorite all-time Advice to the Fathers by Greg Kotis. That's all I'm saying.
