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!

marbles (2009) is a 32-page mini-zine of exercises for chipping away at the stuckness of writer’s block. I have been writing in earnest since I was very young, and have been through many bouts of writer’s block. I gave up writing for years, thinking I would never write again. Now, I write for a living – articles, copy, research, creative non-fiction, zines – as an artist/designer. This is my personal collection of tricks that have helped me in the past. This zine is A7 in size, colour, stapled, about 10g.

AUD$3 to anywhere in the world.

It's just a half size, 12 pages (I'm sure the second one will be longer) and mostly poetry, a story, some thoughts about life, pretty pictures. But it has a penny farthing on the cover, you know you want that! And it's only $2, or trade. I'd love to do a trade with anyone! Just drop me a line- oh, and there's some sample pictures on my profile, so you can see what you're getting yourself into.
Hello everyone!

Brainscan #24 & #25

BRAINSCAN 25-This zine has been five start and stop years in the making. I finally finished it in October of 2009 at the Anchor Archive zine residency in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Brainscan 25 Chronicles my Saturn return as a love story, an ending, and a new beginning with someone from my past. The Saturn Return is the time between ages 27 and 30 when the planet Saturn is in the same place it was at your birth. It is usually seen as a harbinger of change and a test of character where individuals are forced to evaluate their life in relation to their values. Brainscan 25 documents my life between 2004 and 2006 which was full of upheaval and questioning my path and choices in life. The linear story is spliced with narrative flashbacks from 1996-1999 full of punk shows, travel stories and the difficulty of dealing with emotions and the insecurities of growing up. Text heavy with high contrast cut and paste layout and photocopier art.

Brainscan 25 is 80 pages, legal sized (8.5"x7") transparency acetate and cardstock covers, and an envelope containing a 16 page epilogue.

BRAINSCAN 24 is a mini zine with answers to questions I'm frequently asked and random facts like how I was made in Canada, am left handed, and was the very first Aquacadet. 32 pages and 1/8th legal (3.5" x 4.25")
