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!

These are the two zines I created this year.They were each released already but have been repackaged and reprinted.

Brainscan #27
A tiny zine that reads like a snapshot. 1/12 legal sized (3"x4") 28 page mini zine, A single story wrapped in photocopier art. This zine takes place in an elevator between a 9th floor divorce lawyer and the ground and a bike ride home. It explores disappointments and the human inability to consider endings.

"We rode 9 stories down in silence like shedding 9,000 stories of our own"

Brainscan #28
1/6th legal (4.25" square) 28 pages with color covers and color fold outs. This is my 24 hour zine for 2011. It was created in 24 hours at the Independent Publishing Resource Center. The theme was to answer the question "what do you do?" I explored the fact that most people want to know how you make money. I have a sort of strange income to some people so this will answer the question. I also talk about the cats that live in my house and how I have learned to love cats, even though I always thought I was a dog person. I also answer the question "how long have you and Paul been together?" in a fold out time line that includes color photos of us from years past.

This was originally sent to the people who sponsored me in the 24 hour zine challenge. also made 50 copies to trade at the Portland Zine Symposium. After the sleep deprivation of creating a 24 hour zine I wasn't sure if wanted it to be an issue of Brainscan. I decided to go for it and after a bit of tweaking and reformatting I'm re-releasing it as Brainscan 28.

Syndicate Product 20 / The Meta-Comics Issue
44pg / Digest / $4 US

In this Meta-Comics issue, contributors write and draw about what goes into making their comics, why they read comics, creating comics as a form of therapy, trying to adapt favorite novels into comics, favorite creators and long lost characters and imprints, memories of first comic books and dusty comic book stores, some favorite writers and artists, comics used as comfort during childhood (and adulthood), and finally reading those “racy” comics that they peeped at as a teen but never actually purchased. There are a few first-time Syndicate Product contributors in this issue: Alisa Harris, William Brian MacLean, and Dan Shoemaker. You’ll recognize many regulars as well: JB Winter, Delaine Derry Green, Andrew Wales, Andrew Coltrin, Mike Faloon, Davida Gypsy Breier, Jen McCleary, Ken Bausert, Sean Stewart, Eric Lyden, Steve Bojanowksi, and Juleigh Howard-Hobson.

Two recent issues from Electric Windmill! We've been a bit MIA on WeMakeZines the past couple months as we'd been living out of our car in San Francisco, but we've been up to a whole lot since then (check out the intro in Issue #3 for awesome stories!) and we now have more consistent internet access as to be able to share all of this with all of you.

Electric Windmill is an independent book publisher and monthly literary-arts publication. We've nothing to do with windmills or electricity in a literal sense, but we do hope to generate a self-empowering community where artists and thinkers of different, but equally important mediums and ideologies can co-exist.

This isn't about the avant-garde, or the underground, or promoting one specific type of literary expression. People are more important than art. This is about people. Their stories. Their suffering. Their ideas about the world.

Issue No. 002 (released the end of August) offers Stories/fiction, articles, poems, visual art, and photography.  


30 pages / 20 pieces
from 12 contributors


USA (includes Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico & Guam): $3.75
Canada & Mexico: $4.92
World: $5.66
All prices include postage!

50 pages / 17 pieces
from 12 contributors

USA (includes Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico & Guam): $4.75
