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!

Alex is a zine about "the lived experience of gender" and Issue 2 is all about bras.  I conducted a survey asking folks who wear bras all about puberty, childhood, first bras, embarrassing moments, empowering moments, and of course, one's hopes and dreams for the "perfect" bra.  Includes an intro story and my personal essay on the topic.  The zine itself includes collages and artsy touches.  There's nothing to wonder about... get yourself a copy!

Copies of the first and second issues are also available from me at the address above, and from these wonderful distros: Ms. Valerie Park, Sweet Candy, Click Clack and Parcell Press.


A new issue of my mental health zine functionally ill is out and available for trade.  Please contact me here or at robotmad (gmail) to arrange trades. Thanks very much.


Issue ten is about using the word crazy, what mad love means to me, how my crazy manifests, and how I feel about my best friend Arrow's self-harm.

So the big secret is that I'm releasing Candy or Medicine Volumes 14 & 15 simultaneously. The reason? 1. I've never done it before. 2. This is the first time that I've had all of the material for two issues at one time (thanks to all the contributors for being very punctual!).

So for $2 (plus shipping, of course), you will receive both issues, held together by a handy dandy, uhh... jacket? I'm not really sure what to call it. Note: if you are a subscriber (hi, all three of you!), this obviously counts as two issues. You can order at my blog or on Etsy.


Anyway, here's the lineup:

Volume 14
  • John Dimes (cover)
  • Daniel Folgar
  • Patt Kelley
  • Lauren Barnett
  • Emi Gennis
  • Danny Ferbert
  • JB Sapienza
Volume 15

  • Dexter Cockburn (cover)
  • Angel de Leon
  • Sergio Lucero
  • Jonny Smeby
  • Pierre Retrayt
  • Joe Badon
  • Bobby Mono
  • Alex Campbell
  • Migle Anusauskaite

The new issue of DrunkenWerewolf is out! It features reasons to love/hate Glee and interviews with Slow Club, She Makes War (a zinester herself!), Phil the Tremolo King (an incredibly hardworking/nomadic musician currently based in New Orleans) and Beth Jeans Houghton (who's also an amazing visual artist).


Bit more info over here -




Margaret Kilgallen (1967-2001) was a painter and a graffiti artist, a member of the Mission School art movement in San Francisco in the late 1990s, along with her husband, painter Barry McGee. Kilgallen was prolific in her short career, which ended with her death in June 2001. This zine is about my search for more information and insight on Margaret and her work, and tells the story of my own artistic journey as well as thoughts on art in general.


There is more about the project here: http://miss-sequential.blogspot.com/2011/09/meta.html


The cover was block-printed from a block I carved by hand and printed on paper bag card stock.

The zine is quarter-sized (4.25 inches x 5.5 inches), and is 24 pages long (not including the cover).


It can be ordered through my shop on Etsy. If you need to order some other way, please email me at thimblewinder [at] gmail dot com and we'll work something out.

Printaissance #4 : The Fall of the American Empire is new available!


The fourth issue is a socio-political lit zine which uses historical accounts, modern day headlines, poetry, angry hippie insights and more to compile this ranty look at the parallels in the fall of Rome and the looming fall of the 'American' Empire. It is titled The Fall of the American Empire as a foreshadowing, and foreboding, hint at this possible future that it seems the United States is barreling towards. This issue is certainly an opinionated romp through the darker side of our country and is not for the faint of heart.

Issue 4 (41 half page pages / available for trade)
