Hoax is a US annual queer feminist compilation zine that aims to create a space for us to share our own truths. Issue #12: Feminisms and Healing is now up for preorders! This 80-page zine features over two dozen amazing contributors & covers topics like PTSD, self-care, Body Focused Repetitive Disorder, grief, mental illness, self-harm, AA, racism, and asexuality.

Traditionally people used distros to distribute zines, maybe you can find one you like by searching "distro UK" or something similar.  Unfortunately, it is not easy to set up a secure shop on your own URL, so distros still tend to use etsy or something like that, but also do promotion outside of the etsy shop (some thing else that you may also want to try.)

I only really know places in the States, but you could still send some copies of your zines to Quimby's in Chicago.  They let you set your price and take a percentage. You have to contact them six months after you send them in to see how much money you made.

Good luck at the small press show.  Those are the best.

Hi Maddie, I think I am going to attend Small Press Day in Newcastle. I still have not made the zine yet, maybe I am jumping the gun and looking too far ahead... I've got an etsy shop, but there is a LOT of zines on etsy, so I don't see it as a good place for me to sell. I want my zine to be noticed.

I am getting it professionally printed, it's not just gonna be one of those "a4 sheet into 8 pages" kinda thing... 

I'm just struggling

Hey Jade, there is a zine fair in Leeds, I'm not sure if that's close to you but its closer than london. Maybe you could get in touch with someone from there and try and get your zine there! :)

Otherwise online, and I might be interested in getting one... - Maddie

I live in the north east of the England, UK. So not many Zine Fairs around me. London is probably closest and I can't afford to get there. I am looking for the best place to sell my zine, online? 
With the topic being mental health I don't see many shops willing to take it in, as a lot of places/people are a bit funny about the subject. There aren't ANY independent book shops around here so, yeah I guess it has to be online....

Any help?
Suggestions of the best places to sell online? How to get my zine noticed?

My perzine 'Fixing A Hole' issue 2, the 'Edelweiss' edition, is available for free! In this new issue: 'From Anxiety To Zen', zen meditation as a tool against anxiety disorder (not); a review of Jett Rebel's 'Truck', his stunning latest album, and four, five more or less literary pieces on codependency. Please contact me to get your fresh copy!

Hi! NeuroZine is putting out the call for submissions. NeuroZine deals with the day to day lives of people living with mental health issues. Our debut issue focuses on the role of mental health in the workplace, both how a workplace is different for a person with mental health issues and what changes can be made to make it more accessible.

We'll be accepting submissions until April 2nd 2016 and until May 1st for a possible expanded issue. Check out our page for more details. Thanks!

-Nicole, Elliott, and Jeff
