Hi Folks, I'll be teaching a course on zines at Western Illinois University this spring. I'm looking for zinesters who are interested in possibly coming to talk to my class, participate in a zine reading at WIU, and/or have students in the course read your zines and contact you. If you're up for it, you can send me a message here or email me at rebekahb (at) temple.edu. Feel free to pass this info on to other folks who may be interested. (I'll also post it to the Chicago zinesters site.) Thanks!!

Hi, Jane from Indianapolis. I've started Rebel Doll Zine. Issue #0 (the preview) is a free, mini 8 pocket zine. Issue #1 is being worked on and should be available end of September - it will be a half-size zine.

I just wanted to stop and say hi to other fellow Midwest zinesters! :)

Issue #3 of Pieces (¼ size, 40 pages) is now available for trade or purchase for $1 plus postage.

This issue was written over the span of two days during a not-so-wise writing experiment. It includes thoughts about why some people may drink to spur creativity, craving internal dialogue, loneliness, isolation from others and my writing, how bad decisions sometimes influence younger generations, and a handful of other disjointed thoughts.

If you would like to get a quick peek at the zine, see my profile for pictures.

Kerouac-inspired Zine calling for writers and creative submissions along the theme of FREEDOM.

Hi all, I really wanted to tell you all about my new Independent, Kerouac’s Dog ® it's is a brand-spanking new, independent quarterly set to form a bold and exciting creative platform for new writing, design, photography, fashion and plenty more. It’s inspired by Jack Kerouac and the 1950s Beat generation and in honour of these, will eagerly exhibit the newest and bravest work and folios, from creatives all over the world. All tied up with key themes of freedom; truth; beauty; love; travel; wanderlust; sex; taboo; and fringe. The whole thing will be beautifully designed and printed top-to-bottom in black and white (because we have a passion for all things black and white).

Issue 1 needs you – The very first Issue. ‘Freedom’ will be released as a limited print-run later in the year, and available to buy online, to a global audience. So we’re calling on creatives for submissions on this theme and this theme only. As the whole thing is in black and white, the only stipulation is that the stuff you send needs to be in – or look gorgeous in - monochrome. It can be old work, or new work, we don’t mind. We won’t be able to pay you, but we’re happy to put names and URLs with each submission used so please send these through, along with your work.

I'd also LOVE to trade with anyone, as I like collecting all sorts myself.
