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!

Members: 688
Latest Activity: on Sunday

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!

Piltdownlad #5 - "The Detour Guide"

Piltdownlad is a personal narrative zine. Each issue is centered around an autobiographical story. In this issue it's "The Detour Guide," which continues the story from issue #2, "Women Got Me Drinking." So there are more French Quarter shenanigans and failed attempts at romance, illustrated by the wonderful artist Nick Knudson. An excursus to the story is a short confession about my time in foster care. Also in this issue is a travelogue about a road trip to New Orleans, a piece called "Gettin' Lost Downtown," which details my attempt to start a t-shirt business with a street person in Downtown LA, zine reviews and a "Letters and Comments" section that focuses on previous issues of Piltdownlad and the papernet.

Hello everyone. I just signed up for We Make Zines today and would be very interested in trading my zine for you guys' zine. I don't have any preference on the type of zine you're willing to trade, I'm simply interested in what you guys have to say.


My zine is almost exclusively text and is about my 2011 trip to Beijing China. I taught English there for a summer and wanted to share my experiences with other people. I've already sent about 50 of these out to friends and my other communtity at The International Union of Mail-Artists. 


If you would be interested in trading, I would be too. Please get in touch.

I finished up my 24 hour zine on July 30th and it is available for trade!! It is quarter-size; 16 pages and all about my best friend Christy.  I lost Christy to cancer in 1995 (when we were 16) on July 30th actually.  I just wanted to make a zine about her.  The zine is "Dirty July" #2 and if you are interested in trading (or buying a copy) let me know!!!

HEY EVERYBODY! Is anybody out here interested in writing for our zine? Here is a free copy of last month's issue. Liberty Torch Issue 6. Our zine is called the Liberty Torch. It is oriented towards an audience of 7-19 year. So, please be appropriate. We write complete fiction. You can find a bit more info on our WMZ page.

Hope to hear from somebody soon!!!
