a place for zinesters - writers and readers
the d.i.y. events calendar one was exactly how it sounds: how to make a d.i.y. events calendar for your town, how to solicit events from people, distributing the calendar, how it's good for bringing a community together, etc.
Currently reading Burn Collector #14... feeling kinda 'eeehh' about it. I'm not really into the comics mixed in with the content the way Al put it together this time.
I liked the stories in it, about the comics, but not really the comics inside.
however the writings are good !

I Am said:why do you usually avoid perzines and poetry zines? i've always thought most people were interested in perzines...
I find most perzines kinda boring. I primarily read zines that teach me something--a craft zine like Craft Leftovers, or a guide to being more creative, or a DIY health and cleaning guide like Make Your Place.
Of course, these zines have personal aspects to them, which I appreciate, but they're not just a list of "here's what I did today," or "here's my feelings about [whatever]," which I'm not super interested in. I've read a lot of really lame perzines--only the well written ones with unique things to say will keep my interest.
Reading the new Ax Wound and loving it!
