Information

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: 597
Latest Activity: yesterday

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 a new zine out, Erik and Laura-Marie Magazine #45. It features autobiographical material on an annulment, walks, moving, jobs. There are three dreams. There are lots of poems. And there are book reviews and zines reviews of just about everything I read during the months I was collecting prose and poetry for the zine.

It's digest-sized and 32 pages, very text heavy.

My zines are free or trade, and I would love to trade with you. Please email me at gmail dot com (robotmad) so we can swap addresses.

Yay trades!

I finished laying out my new zine, Mistaken for Straight and will take it to the copy shop this morning. I'll soon have copies for trading.

The zine has 33 pages and is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.

I will for sure take trades for it. (I love trades.)

Here's a description from the front cover:

"Contemplation on identity, sexual orientation, bisexuality, queerness, gender roles, and the possibility of liberation"

"Includes definitions, rants, confusion, poems, coming out stories, frustration, and info on reading material"

We just finished this weekend our first issue of sacraWOMENto. If any of you are interested in trading, drop us a line :)

Issue #1 of Contradictory gives you a bit of insight as to who I am. How others see me compared to how I see myself. It talks about my problems in dealing with self-harm and other related issues, and it talks about dealing with the recent loss of a friend and how that's changed my perspective on life. Not very text or image heavy - a quick read. 16 pages, quarter size.

I'm interested in trading for other perzines, or zines with yummy vegan recipes. If you're interested in trading for my zine we can definitely work something out, just contact me :)

The first issues of CATS TEETH and ABSENT PRESENT are ready.

ABSENT PRESENT takes an anti-moderntity / Outsider stance - includes an article on horror and the aesthetics of the abject, a review of Eric Drooker's anarchist artwork, the remake of the film 'Funny Games' (and the audience as a voyeur), creepy nihilistic fiction.

CATS TEETH is a perzine which pieces together fragments from my collection of diaries. The first issue is themed 'Mislead Me' and focuses on power relations in love and sex, innocence and corruption, dark fantasies.

The first issue of Hazel Harper is finished and ready for trade. It's an 18 page, b&w, half size perzine with pictures, some of my drawing (doodling), and writing. This one is sorta the "getting to know me" issue. e-mail me at theunrememberedone@yahoo.com if you're interested in trading.

Telegram Ma'am is a quarter-sized perzine all about mental health, loneliness, nostalgia, adventures, bicycles, small towns, and finding a home.

I am mostly interested in trading for perzines, especially those of the mental health, feminist, and queer variety.

Hey folks! I've been a busy zinester over the last year, and I've been a slacker to post them up on the net. Behind the cut are pictures for the zines. Here's what they are and their descriptions:

10 Dirty Little Secrets - This was my 24 hour zine for 2007. Inside are 10 of my own personal dirty secrets. It's fairly image heavy and a quick read, but I've gotten really good feedback on it. It's a 24 page quarter size!

Pandora's Box #18 - This is the latest issue of my perzine. Inside I look at the realization that I'm not happy with who I am right now in life, little things that rebirth me, and 100 things I believe. It's a 16 page half size.

26 Things - This was my first art zine. It's in full colour. I challenged myself to the 26 Things photo challenge and took my images and made them into a zine. I only have 3 copies left of this 28 page quarter size zine.

Hello, That's Not a Bump - This zine takes a look at the fat perspective. What is it to love your body? Why can't you? And who says skinny is it? It's a mini zine (one sheet of paper folded into 8 pages).

Mixtape - a mini zine - This takes a look at the mixtape culture that still survives these days. What is the art of mix, who still makes cassette mixes, and why? .

Little White Pill - This one takes a look at my recent battle with depression. I tell my story about resisting going on anti-depressants, and the outcome of that. I also offer suggestions on fighting depression drug free, and give some alternatives if you're a cutter. This one is a 28 page half size.
