Hi Zinesters!
My name's Dawn. I am a former NYC public high school ESL teacher who taught zine-making to my students. Now, I'm in library school studying to become a community college/academic librarian, hopefully. 

Anyway, I am currently in an information literacy pedagogy course, and doing a research process project with the following research question:
"How do high school teachers create effective zine projects to help students of all learning abilities improve in their writing skills?"

If any of you have/know of someone who has/or know of resources where I can find information related to this question, please reply to me at the following email address- 

Thanks in advance!

Hi, my horror fanzine Necronomicon issue 18 is out now on Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/NecroNeil I understand some of you guys got in touch and contributed, so if thats you (I know who you are ;)) get in touch for a copy!

I wrote this fanzine through a terrible period of chronic fatigue, it was a battle but I dont think the fanzine has suffered, its interesting to see how it effects my writing.

Let me direct you over to www.itsanidealworld.com


I write the blog over there and they are VERY supportive of disabled creative people. Their magazine is still struggling, but there's a lot of different ways you can support I.D.E.A.L. and they can support you. Check them out!


Also, the second issue of The Filth is coming out at the end of April, if anyone wants to set up a trade, send me a message.

Hi, I have run a fanzine called Necronomicon for 10 years and I have just put out my 17th issue! Its about my general day to day life as I watch horror films. I have manic depression and fibromyalgia and have used writing and making the zine to get me through the highs and lows of my illness. Its a very chatty and personal fanzine at the same time as reviewing old horror films. If youre interested in writing anything (I like to encourage other disabled people to contribute and it has been a nice focus for some people writing for it) then send me a message. You can get Necro at Etsy http://www.etsy.com/shop/NecroNeil?ref=pr_shop_more
