We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Hi everyone! Summer is fast approaching, and I feel that it's time to initiate another group swap! I'll keep things pretty simple and copy/paste Jethro's rules for the last one, with updated dates:

1- Between now and June, make a "new" mini zine. Size is up to you, but i think as a general rule, mini zines should be smaller than 5" x 8" / 13cm x 20cm (approx). Other than that size and shape is all up to you!
2- If you really want to participate but cannot make an entire new zine, that is fine, but try to trade something that you have done recently. I am really encouraging everyone to try to make a new zine, something fresh and new to share with the group.
3- Send me a message or comment here with your name and address if you want to participate. PLEASE RESPOND BY MAY 15. I will compile a list of the folks who are participating and then distribute the list back to everyone involved in the trade.
4- On JUNE 15, 2009 send out one copy of your zine to everyone on the list. I realize postage can be expensive when sending zines overseas, so PLEASE take this into consideration before joining the swap. If you join and then feel at any time that you cannot participate for any reason, PLEASE tell me right away, so I can inform everyone involved in the swap, nothing is worse than trading zines and getting nothing in return.
5- BE CREATIVE, BE AWESOME, MAKE A GREAT ZINE!!! I think that's a given for most zine folks, but put effort into this, second only to not getting a zine in trade is getting a zine that little or no effort was put into.
6- If you have any ideas about the trade. Let me know, we can add them if we think, as a group, that it would be a good idea.

I'd like to be part of the swap. Our collective just made twenty bucks on consignment so I have stamps!
I have two mini zines that I'm working on:
The Fine Art of Dumpster Diving
Abortions are Funny: and other things you should never say in public

Two other collective members are working on mini zines as well.
Lookin' forward to trading with everyone. I think we can help with stamps as well by sending a trade with some extra stamps to those who need them.

Great! Glad to have you on board. Please message me your address so I can start making a list of participants. :)
hi, i'm definitely interested in participating again!
the only thing is, i'm going to be moving around during summer, and don't have an address to give you yet.
but i'd love if you'd save a spot for me :)
