Indeed on the comment below. But I would be interested in reading it when it comes out! :)

I hope you're making a print copy as well... More power to ezines if you care for them, but there's something about handmade, hand stapled/sewn, cut and paste goodness that I love.

Hello! I'm super new to this whole zine thing, but I'm working on making a zine about psychosis (and possibly other mental health topics), with the pages littered with drawings and doodles of monsters. Why the monsters? Why not? I'm planning on making it an e-zine, and have at least the first issue free. I'm really new to this though, so if you'd be interested in giving me advice, you can contact me at thezefbluhbluh at gmail dot com. Thank you!

It's....It's....It's a zine! A zine is born! 'Different Shades of Normal #3 presents:

The rewind and fast-forward edition.' This perzine spans 21 years of writing. It includes failed relationships, depression, self-destruction, grief, self-care, etc. This perzine is typed and is 38 pages. Hurry and get it soon before it goes beddy-bye!

LTLE - Letters To the LTLE Editor is a new zine solely comprising letters to the editor. The inspiration for starting it came from my experiences of being mad, & being shut down/not listened to because I didn't communicate "in the right way".

I want it to be legitimate to be senseless, apocryphal, tangential, etc., even if it is difficult or confusing.

So I'm calling for letters. The letters can be about anything - current news, old news, personal rants & loves, responses to past letters, or they can be about no discernible topic. The point is that their incoherence, worthlessness or extreme specificity will present no obstacle to their publication.

Minimum wordcount is 1. Maximum wordcount is ~200. Notional deadline is October 10, 2014.

I make a sex zine called my buoyancy, an effortless feeling.  The first issue is about body image, BDSM, PTSD, sexual violence, sexual healing, and being radical. It's available for trade.  I thought I'd post about it here because of the PTSD and body image content.  Maybe you'd enjoy it.  Please message me here, or email me at nestnestnestnestnest at gmail.  Thank you.

Dear friends, my latest mental health zine is functionally ill 17.  This one is about therapy, rapid cycling, body image, disability, dreams.  Please contact me if you would like to trade.  Otherwise, here's my etsy.

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
