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: 692
Latest Activity: on Tuesday

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!

I've just finished my first zine- Spellbook for Reckless Children. :D It's a perzine and this issue looks at imaginary friends, my experiences with institutions, love and violence. It's 40 pages, 1/4 sized. I'm particularly interested in perzines, queer and feminist zines and mini comics.

Courtesy Flush is a half-size zine of collaborative drawings created between my girlfriend and I. 32 colorful pages of weird, surreal, and magical beings. More pictures in my profile. Trade or $3+shipping.





















In The Headlights is a mini zine I made for the Mini-Zine Folks Group Swap #3. It is a wordless comic of sorts that captures still images from alien video broadcasts. See another preview picture in my profile. Trade or $1+shipping.

Saturation is a DIY art and music festival that occurs semi-annually in Riverside, CA. Saturation is a labor of love, and it’s successful because of the incredible talent in Riverside. We keep doing it because it’s fun, and because it’s vital to keep up the hard work on behalf of the bands, artists, and community that make Riverside uniquely creative and supportive.

I'll have a new diary comic back from the printers in a week, 10 days or so. It's about a week spent in Malta as part of Birdlife's 'Springwatch' camp, which tries to help migrating birds make it past the thousands of shooters on the island.

Let me know (a) if you'd like to swap, and send me a postal address; (b) I've forgotten something about something or other and you'd like to remind me of it.

By swaps, incidentally, I totally count postcards, letters, and news clippings from local newspapers. Send em to: Mike, 42 Curtis Road, Newcastle, NE4 9BH, United Kingdom of Fools. My email is oldglen [squirly at] gmail dot com

The first issue of my zine, "Let's Do It For Johnny" has hit the streets. It's a perzine with stories that are funny, sad, and colorful...a lot like life. I would love to trade with anyone who's interested.

I've got a new perzine that I am dying to trade. Evil Flower #4 is mainly about my sense of identity whether it be a questioning little girl who is attracted to Michael Goorjian or dying to be like Veronica Mars.

Hello all! just finished the latest issue of my zine, Sowing and Dawning.  A personal documentation of various tours and trips and the reflections and introspections involved with living in NYC over the past year.

Two books packaged in a sewn/blockprinted brown paper folder.  Text heavy but peppered with plenty of ornamentation and imagery.  Very thick.  Get in touch!
