I have a bunch of copies of a new one-shot zine called Small Is Beautiful, an eight-page, single-sheet zine with prompts and inspiration for writers. Basically this is a little zine with some fun, accessible ideas for overcoming writer's block. It might give you an idea (or two or three) for a short poem or the start of a story or who knows what else...
It's just $1 via PayPal (sent to mandypoet at hotmail dot com) for the zine.
There's a little more info about it in this blog post, too:

1983 Zine Unearthed!
I just scanned and posted a zine I did THIRTY YEARS AGO!! ACK! I posted a pdf HERE if you want to check it out- "Viva Boheme" was an Iowa City punk zine....
Gordie Page, 28, vanished from his bedroom at a foster care home in Grand Rapids, Michigan on the night of May 27, 1991. Page left no clues as to where he was going or why he left the home. He was not carrying any identification or cash when he left. The case remains unsolved.
This is the true story of Gordon Page, Jr. It is a 10 page mini comic, all in black and white and measures about 7x5 inches. If you like non-fiction comics or comics based on history or real events, you may enjoy this comic.
Here's a snippet of a review from Justin Giampoali of thirteenminutes.blogspot.com:
I enjoyed the story; in the end, a sad one about someone probably just trying to get home to his parents when he disappeared. Details like the baseball cards are chilling in their precision, but also logical given savant tendencies on the autism spectrum. The most disturbing aspect of this for me was that Hendricks captures a time period in the health care system that saw the rise in overmedication coupled with misdiagnosis, a silent epidemic that never really had any regulatory or legal repercussions for health care workers supposedly acting in good faith. Fans of any true crime or “Unsolved Mysteries” style shows are a group I can easily recommend this to, especially at the low risk price of just $1. Grade B+.

This year our annual Xmas story is about detective, Leo Mars:
Here is the first paragraphs
Happy Holidays Readers! ! Here is our annual Musea Christmas Story. Take a rest from your busy schedule and find out about the latest case of the detective, Leo Mars. On this, Musea's 20th year, I wish you all a great Christmas season and an even better New Year - Tom.
My name is Leo Mars. I'm a private investigator. I tried to be a cop but couldn't pass the tests. Better for me though. I can charge more and do what I want.
Two things happen when someone hires me. They're desperate and they don't really expect much. It's an easy con to charge a lot and do little. Some other detectives do. But I don't. You'd loose out in the long run. All of us have dry times and if I wasn't very good, I'd be starving in a food line like most detectives these days.
My case came about this way. Mr. Harcourt called me up. He sounded like one of those powerful men, take charge, no nonsense, guys. He didn't want to come down to my office. Wanted me to go up to his home for a check-see. OK. That's fine. So I go to his address up in the hills..... (continued)
