a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Thanks for the pointers. What's the best way to deal with distros? I have no real idea about what to ask them or how to price things etc. - I'm not in this for the money but I can't afford to operate at a loss...
I've plugged on a few LJ comms so we'll see how that goes.
My zine is about a lot of things of interest to me, and the first two issues contain travelogues, book and music reviews, poetry by myself and others, photography and how-to articles, with a DIY ethic to them.
Well, if it helps any, I just bought a copy from your Etsy shop, since you mentioned it, and it looked interesting to me. I look forward to reading it. :)
i'm not sure distros are always the way to go. when i sent my first issue out to a bunch of distros, nothing really happened, and now i kinda find it a waste of time and postage to keep sending it out to people who i don't know seeking their approval, when they probably can't even relate to me anyway. working with distros means you have to follow their guidelines and if you look at a bunch of the zines they have on their site, they're all kinda the same and about the same stuff all the time with the token "person of color" zine thrown in for good measure. and i'm just over it.
