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!

My 24-hour zine is ready! It's called Oliphant, is 16 pages quarter size (A6) and is mostly available for trade, especially for other 24-hour zines, but for any zine really!

Finished my first ever zine!

Hop A Plane (somewhere else)

Made for the 24 Hour Zine Thing 2009.

1/2 sized, 24 pages.

A travel zine of sorts about my gap year between school and university.
Some of the things I write about:
- Travelling around for a few weeks in Canada and then later in USA.
- Ramblings about several zine festivals including Canzine East, Hotel Canzine and Portland Zine Symposium.
- Random observations from my travels in North America.
- Thoughts on my increased interest in photography.
- Musing on why I don’t think my memories have sound.

This zine, at some point, will have a twin zine about how I pretty much spent my year following Tegan and Sara around the world. This zine has minimal Tegan and Sara references in it though.

UK: £1.25 including postage
Europe: £1.75/2 euros including postage
Rest of World: £2.25/$3.75 including postage
Paypal to distro@marchingstars.co.uk or email me for a mailing address.
I’m up for trades too.

This is I named as my 'inspirational zine.' Basically, I discuss things that inspire me to keep doing what I do and be creative. Ashtanga yoga and Pattahbi Jois, 'Flow' and being active, story telling, vermicomposting, reviews on zine and books, my best friend as a child, recipe for energy bars, and cartoon crushes.

I should have really made this zine bigger! Sigh-there's always issue 4 to come!

New Zine! Paper Crush #3


Paper Crush #3 is the story of me at 15 and the first prom I went to and everything else surrounding it. You will hear about the religious school I went to until that year, my first love, Southern California shenanigans and lots of other 1980 memories.

Includes a couple actual diary entries (embarrassing) and illustrations (including a few truly inspired ones that are not by me).

18 pages. Half-Size. 2 bucks at Etsy. Sorry, not doing trades at this time. I have scads of zines to get through from PZS.

Thanks!

Another issue of Miranda, my zine about motherhood and other adventures, is hot off the copier. Here’s a preview of Number Nineteen:

The Clothes Off Her Back - Vintage garments. So hip, right? Not when they’re maternity clothes. Your mother’s maternity clothes.

Rochambeau – A new town, a first job, a whole mess of uncertainty.

Frivolous – True confessions: I love the New York Times wedding announcements. And so does my nine-year-old boy.

The Tintin Effect – how a series of classic comics can give a kid a very odd outlook on life.

The Passion – The good teachers had it. I did not.

Plus, the Motel of Lost Companions encounters a Ghost; lots more book reviews; Mama’s Stray Thoughts (featuring hipsters vs. hippies, the toddler love of sticks, just how well Simon knows his mother and an April Fool joke you really shouldn’t try). Also, things overheard in the blueberry field and an excellent recipe for Challah.

$2

This is the zine I made for the 24hr challenge in July. 24 pages in 24 hours. It's a cute square pocket sized zine with 24 pages and articles about:

* buying a ridiculously impractical bike
* trying to learn to like gin
* vegan stirfry recipe
* assorted top 5s about important stuff like the Fall and cakes
* doing a stall at the London Zine Symposium
* accidentally eating bacon when I got given the wrong order (I've been vege for 10 years)

It's $1 USD or 50p GBP, if you order two zines from my Etsy shop, I'll throw it in free.

I'm also up for trades for any and all of my zines . I like trading perzines that aren't just misery, indie music zines, vegetarian cookery zines, art & craft zines, vintage dress patterns (34" bust), cute stationery or haberdashery bits.

This is a feminist zine aimed at survivors of sexual abuse and sexual violence. It is mainly aimed at women and girls, and is a 24 page A5 size zine, photocopied.

How to Write a Zine or THE ART OF PROCRASTINATION
This is ostensibly about the process of creating a zine, but is really all about procrastination - its joys and frustrations, and contains various procrastination tools and ideas within :)
This was written for the 24 hour zine project. It is a 24 page A6 zine, photocopied.

50:50 Zine #1
Double sided A4 page, 50 things I love on one side, 50 things I hate on the other. Simple as!

Photos to follow when I find my USB cable.




YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL #8 + eight and a half

this issue of YOUR PRETTY FACE is mainly about work & worries. or how unhappy it was making me during the month of july. i wrote this zine during the last two weeks of the month, trying to get something finished in time for alternative press fair, and i was having an especially bad time. so the zine is quite angry and tearful (i cry when i'm angry. scream and cry. but mostly cry, especially when in public/at work) there's also a bunch about harry potter, which was eating my brain a little bit. & my love for luna lovegood. with drawings by the amazing frl.zucker!

it comes with a 10 page minizine because i thought it was a bit too angry and mopey, and i wanted to just say that it's not that bad all the time. but i'm not sure i succeeded in that.

handcoloured covers, as usual.

1/4 size, 26 pages + 10 page minizine

AVAILABLE AT MY ETSY SHOP!

i also do trades: similar size perzines, mixtapes / mixed cds, caramel flavoured cigarettes, stationery etc..
