We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers


Let's Trade Zines!

This is a group designed specifically for trading your zine for someone elses. Post a decription of your zine or contact some people in the group directly!

I realised there wasn't a group on WMZ specific to zine trades so I wanted to get something in place so that people can pool together their interest in trading.

Thanks for making this the biggest group on We Make Zines!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone seems to post a new thread in the forum when they want to share their zines but why not just come to one group where you know people are going to be receptive when you want to share with them!

This issue is made up of writing on lots of themes, including nationality/identity/self, image/appearance, visiting Melbourne, reflecting on Sydney, feminism, contradictions, boys, confusion, death and discovery.

It is square-quarter-sized, 32 pages. Let's trade!

I have three new zines ready!

You can see details and / or buy with paypal at rebelgrrlzine.co.uk or contact me on here if you are interested in trading, or just send trades (for similar) to me at
PO Box 4663
S1 9FN
United Kingdom.

Basically, the three zines are:
Rebel Grrl Zine: The Survive Issue
This is a feminist zine aimed at survivors of sexual abuse and sexual violence. It is mainly aimed at women and girls, and is a 24 page A5 size zine, photocopied.

This is ostensibly about the process of creating a zine, but is really all about procrastination - its joys and frustrations, and contains various procrastination tools and ideas within :)
This was written for the 24 hour zine project. It is a 24 page A6 zine, photocopied.

50:50 Zine #1
Double sided A4 page, 50 things I love on one side, 50 things I hate on the other. Simple as!

Photos to follow when I find my USB cable.

Paranoid Cat #3 is out now. Photos from equal love rally writing on a near tragedy and a poem featured on the Fedration Sqaure scrolling text boxes in Melbourne Australia . Leave address on my page if you want to trade.

Tears in my Schooner: a guide on depressive aural indulgence is my first zine. It is a zine about depression, dealing with your emotions and using music to indulge. It's a A5 zine that comes with a Audio CD. More than willing to trade, or send you a copy for postage and construction costs ($3)

All Things Ordinary #1 is out now! This is a personal zine about the last month i spent in Buffalo, NY (where i have lived all 27 years of my life) before i moved to Portland, OR (where i've been living for the past 4 months). It mostly consists of reflections on my time in Buffalo, thoughts about what lies ahead of me in Portland (i had never visited Portland before i moved here), and things that happened to me during my last month living in Buffalo. It is 24 pages and quarter sized.

I love trading zines and would prefer that, but if you don't want to/can't trade it is $3.00ppd. My paypal address is derekneuland@gmail.com.

send zine trades or $3.00 well hidden cash/money order to:

Hello Everyone!

I am happy to say that Issue One of my zine, Kaleidoscope Eyes has been finished! Issue One is a bit of an introduction issue, it's got some fortune cookie wisdom, advice from Myrtle the Turtle, and a small part of my experiences in my first year of college. If you'd like to trade, you can get ahold of me at thesekaleidoscopeeyes@gmail.com
Thanks, Ailee

I am happy to announce the first issue of my perzine called "Creepy Dolls", available in my etsy shop or for trade for other perzines.
Comment by Bettie on July 24, 2009 at 8:01am
I just finished Anatomical Heart #5. It's a perzine about my mental illness and more. I'd like to trade for other perzines, please. If you'd like to trade with me, email me at xbettiex@gmail.com or just go ahead and send your zine and I'll send mine back to you! Here's where it should go if you'd like to do that: Bettie Walker, 2 The Green, Blencogo, Wigton, Cumbria, CA7 0DF, UK.

Hope it's okay to post this here, as it's about an external trade... I just discovered that Alma Stoller (you'll probably know who she is, if you're into art zines; if not, check out Etsy!) is running an arty/crafty zine trade. You can get the full details here.

I think it looks like an interesting way to run a trade: she is asking for 10 copies of your zine to be sent to her, and she will send you 10 different zines, in return. Your own 10 zines will in turn be sent out to the other people who take part. I've taken part in quite a few trades lately, and it gets frustrating when you send things out in good faith & get nothing in return. With one person (in this case, Alma) co-ordinating the physical receiving & despatching of zines, I think this should mean that you will actually get as many back as you send out. For once.

This kind of trade would only work with a trustworthy host (which this one has), though - otherwise, it might be a very quick & easy way for some unscrupulous type to set up their own distro!

I would love to trade zines with anyone whos interested. I was just in the twin cities zine fest over the weekend selling/trading zines and had sooo much fun. I've been making zines since 1999. I make artsy, feminist, social commentary zines!
