Would anyone be interested in do a LA zine show/share thing? I have a venue we can use for free (my bicycle shop). Just checking for interest, any comments good or bad are welcome.

Sorry to post again, I mainly needed to remove/update my e-mail as to not get spam. I'm requesting any available zines anyone would like to donate to a forming zine library at the Lawndale branch in Southern California. All subject matter is accepted (pending approval by the Library and City) but please keep in mind the main demographic is teens. Unfortunately I can't reimburse you (even for shipping) as I'm already fronting the cost of this project (materials, PO BOX, etc.) so anything you can send is much appreciated.

Please send zine donations to:
Nina (Lawndale Zine Library)
14752 Crenshaw Blvd. #525
Gardena, CA, 90249

This project could mean big things for the South Bay, which despite having a long history with DIY/punk culture has very few spaces available for the youth. Any direction to people interested in donating or tips for library formation from experienced parties is also appreciated. Both the community and I thank you for your time and consideration in donating!

hey all! ive recently started composing a zine with a group of friends and as exciting as this journey has been, we're still relatively new to the zine-making community, so i would love to know of any advice experienced zinesters would find it necessary to pass down to us. our theme is pretty broad considering we want it to encompass a wide range of topics: from underground music, the local skate scene, psychonautics, to astrology and basically anything inspiring/obscure/brilliant, and possibly with sociopolitical undertones....as of now, we're juggling with various ideas to form something that Flows. we're also interested in the zine printing process since we haven't delved in that thoroughly enough.

I am looking for ongoing submissions for an e-zine about arcade/nerd culture and the crossover into the DIY/punk community. The first issue of this e-zine will focus on losing your arcade virginity/first experiences with arcades.

It will be available for free online August 1st and the goal is to release it each Tuesday of the month. If you would like to collab, please e-mail me your submission by July 28th (two weeks from now). I am primarily looking for people who live in the South Bay or near Los Angeles in California, but anyone is welcome to submit.

Please share widely to interested parties or contact me if you are -at all- interested. I'm really intersted in finding this cross-section of our community and making this an on-going project

Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3
