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!

Latest Activity: Aug 13

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!

TO GET STARTED, ADD A COMMENT INCLUDING A ONE-LINER ABOUT YOUR ZINE FOR TRADE AND A ONE-LINER ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE AFTER IN THE TRADE (IF YOU'RE FEELING SPECIFIC)....

I have recently joined this group so I thought I should introduce myself!

Hi, I'm Jemma and I live in Norwich, UK

My first two zines are small faux porn mags. They were made in collaboration under a pseudonym and can be found in full here: www.geniusloki.wordpress.com **Beware adult content!**

My latest zine is entitled "Keiku" and consists of six Haiku with companion pictures composed on my mobile phone this winter, 2012.

All three of my existing zines are small and low budget, if you want copies then just mail me your address and I will happily send them anywhere in the world! Doing a swap would be great too!

If you like, check out my non-zine artwork here: www.institutist.co.uk

Any Old Iron #2 is out and ready to swap. A happy concoction of doodles, colouring in, a recipe, a wordsearch, as well as articles and letters. :-)

Hi, I finally did an english version of my mini-zine woodchuck #1 from last summer (issue #2 is in the making).I like to call it "outdoor zine", because I usually spread it in the streets, parks and woods of my hometown, hiding it in hollow trees, under rocks and park benches(I check from time to time and "restock" if necessary).

It's about music (Kylesa, Les Savy Fav, Blue Note/Swing Kids,...), how not getting completly consumed and fucked up by your jobs and the mysteriously revolutionary organisation called The Red Squirrel Friends (and how you become a member...), which is also the official organ of that secret organisation;)

If you you are interested and like to swap, just put a note in my inbox!

neither doll houses nor tree houses: on living outside of the gender binary

finished in under 24 hours for the chicago zine fest, this zine focuses on the ups and downs of finding myself outside of the gender binary and attempts to both de- and re-construct various questions about my own gender as well as gender in general. three separate sections discuss feeling pushed out of femininity, how masculinity is viewed as inherent and femininity is viewed as a fictitious performance, how striving for the “perfect balance” of two genders is not plausible nor an adequate solution, acceptance or tolerance (or neither) that i feel in specific spaces, how my radical friends misgender and disrespect me more often than my non-radical ones, the (non-) accessibility of queer jargon and language, how coming out has garnered me the most intense gender assumptions yet, dealing with friends who don’t “get it”, my desire to validate my own identity without stepping on the identity of others, and checking white privilege. 32 pgs, ½ size, b&w. $2-3 or trade. message me or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa (at) gmail (dot) com for more info!

I pulled some of my favorite posts from my web site - hasanyoneseenmyshoe.blogspot.com, which is photographs of found articles of clothing, and made a small book out of them. Would like to trade for anything with photography/art, especially bizarre stuff.

“Not ‘Queer’ as in ‘Radical’ but ‘Lesbian’ as in Fuck You,” is follow up to “Reimagining Queer Community,” a twenty-four hour perzine I made in July, 2011. Since July, I have continued mulling over nuanced, and often controversial, questions regarding my association with the lgbt community at large. “Not ‘Queer’ as in ‘Radical’ but ‘Lesbian’ as in Fuck You” is a perzine that explores my recent decision to use the word “lesbian” as a substitution for “queer.” I also talk about male domination and sex-right in supposedly “sex positive” queer spaces, the perpetuation of misogynistic troupes and devaluation of lesbian identities within “progressive” and “feminist” communities, owning up to & attempting to combat transphobia that has historically emanated from within lesbian spaces, and queer as hierarchical social capital.

1 / 4 size, text heavy & 16 pages. for snail mail or trading, please e-mail rachelzines at gmail dot com.

MACHINERY Vs. the Sun #2, some immense 72 page magazine of self absorbed imitation of better writers. stories from cuba and montana and columbia (missouri) and a horny young boy in a cave in mexico, just to name a few. all of it true. i can't write fiction. but the layout is good. it's probably the best part.

Lookin' for any gritty storytelling and short fiction that reads like a breadcrumb trail, and anything by Okra P. Dingle AKA: Rhorn. Not interested in your comics or 1/4 page perzine about cats and office work.

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #6

my issues with mental health have always been immensely difficult for me to assess, describe, and talk about. an intensely private person, i have kept most of my struggles to myself. in this zine, i attempt to investigate the traces of anxiety, depression, suicide, and alcoholism in my family’s history as well as my own difficulties with these issues. almost split into two zines due to volume, this issue is a hefty assortment of stories, thoughts, and emotions.

eight sections discuss: the secrecy surrounding my family’s history of suicides, a recent suicide in my family, my issues with anxiety and pushing emotions aside, my reoccuring suicidal thoughts and how my identities intersect with them, talking with a fellow queer/trans* friend struggling with suicide, assessing my tumultuous relationship with alcohol and deciding to become consciously sober, what i can do to manage and deal with things, and what i plan to do in the future. there is a trigger warning for the zine relating to depression, anxiety, suicide, self-harm, alcoholism, sexual assault, and abuse - please take care of yerself before you read this - it is intense.

this zine is extremely text heavy, black & white, 46 pages, and 1/2 size. for purchasing or trading, please e-mail youvegotafriendinpaATgmailDOTcom or get in touch with me on here!

Heey all- I just realized I haven't traded zines in awhile and I miss it so. The other day, I finished up stitching the binding of several copies of Staircase Wit #4: the lucid dreaming guide and would like to send them off to good homes, especially fellow zinesters. In return, I'm looking for any zines really like perzines, music zines, riotgrrl zines, DIY, blahblah whatever you feel like sending my way. Contact me thru here or staircasewitzine@gmail.com. Thanks ;)

Greetings! My fuzzy cosmic creature friend, Moon Sky, wants to share with y'all a zine of its spiritual sermons about Nature in this short 8-page color comic zine.

You can meet Moon Sky on its blog here! And decide whether you'd dig getting your hands on a copy of happy self-help happenings to share with your human or furry friends.
