Just a reminder of tonight's FREE zine event at Rock Paper Scissors Collective in Oakland. Have you seen our impressive 2,500+ zine library? Want to make a zine with us? Feel like meeting like-minded creatives and hearing them read from their own DIY publications? Join us tonight! Music from Kevin Costa and lots of zines from snazzy Oakland locals. 6:30 - 9:00 PM.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: "If you'd like to hear it // I can sing it for you" is a zine on aging based in Berkeley. We are now accepting submissions for issue #002. We are accepting writings, photos, artwork centered around the theme “The things we’ve created.” All submissions should be formatted for b&w printing.

Please include: contact information you would like included in the zine, websites where interested readers can see more of your work, and an “about me” page with some fun info about you~

Our theme for this issue centers around social fabrications: the things we’ve created to help us hide from the things we haven’t - ie: colorblind notions of frailty, long-term care facilities, modern burial practices, Medicare coverage, culturally-specific understandings of an aging-body, etc. We are particularly interested in experiences of aging *outside* of fabricated normative structures- including senior homelessness, sexuality in older age, poverty, and addiction in older age. 

Deadline is JULY 25, 2015. Can’t wait to see and include your work.

Hi, all- if you're in the East Bay/Berkeley/Oakland areas, our zine "If you'd like to hear it// I can sing it for you" is now available for purchase at Pegasus Books Downtown in Downtown Berkeley (bottom right of this picture!). Pay our friends a visit, pick up a copy of our zine, and scope out the other great DIY publications available! Happy Friday~

Anyone doing anything fun in the east bay lately? Each time I hit up the Long Haul I think of turning the space into a one day zine meetup to trade zines/hang out and eat vegan snacks for the day...

Hi, all- the first press of Issue #001 of our zine "If you'd like to hear it // I can sing it for you" is done! Our zine is focused on the negotiation of an aging body and a “forgetful” self in an unaccommodating world, as well as accounts of chronic illness and the end-of-life experiences of an aging self. Based in Berkeley, CA, and handmade from start-to-finish.

You can check out our Tumblr and Facebook. Our zines are available on our webstore, where they are selling for $1.00 + postage. Thank you for your support, and I am looking forward to sharing our work with you all. Cheers!

Hello zinesters! I am 20 years old, live in San Francisco and publish a music magazine called TEENAGE NEWS. I would love to trade, sell or give you fine folks a copy.

In short, "TEENAGE NEWS is based around an unceasing desire to rediscover long-lost, favorite records. TEENAGE NEWS is not limited to a specific audience; it is for those who are trying to recreate that initial captivation of falling for an album, artist, song, era, ideology, etc. TEENAGE NEWS is about the reader getting lost in the moment, learning about themselves, and learning about the STARS that created much more than pieces of merchandise."  

Issue #2 proves that TEENAGE NEWS always hits you full force. Back with educating and entertaining interviews, prepare to lose yourself in this teenage paradise.

Features: Cherie Currie (Runaways), Gary Powell (Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things), Jennifer Clavin (Bleached), Klaus Nomi, Dave Davies (The Kinks), Cherry Vanilla's Pop Tart Compositions, Joey Pinter, Bobby Jameson, Tommy James (the Shondells), Desert Island Discs by the STARS, The Mutants, Vinnie Kircher (Jaill), album reviews.
