We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Hey Mini Zine Folks!
Here are the guidelines for the 3rd MINI ZINE FOLKS GROUP SWAP!
1- Between now and April 30th, 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. That's why I am giving this swap a over a months time.
3- Send me a message with your name and address if you want to participate. 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 May 1st 2011 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 am really looking forward to getting a bunch of zines (and right before the holidays, so a cool present too, for whatever holiday you , or don't, celebrate!) from all you awesome mini zine folks!

Cheers

Jethro

I dropped my two mini-zines in the mail tonight o they'll be on the way to you soon. Thanks for the one-to-one swap on this. Are you setting up another swap #4 for next month?

If you have a zine you'd like to trade I have some extras left of mine ready to trade, send me your address and I'll send one out!

Sorry I missed out on the Mini-Zine #3 swap. I didn't get back here and see to send you my address. Hopefully will be able to join in on the next one. I would be fun to get more zines and grow my little mini collection.

Excellent, I'm dropping my two the mail tomorrow. I'm happy to do the one-on-one swap, I'm always excited to do trade more zines.  As soon as I figure out the theme for the next swap I'll be posting it up! A lot of folks seem to dig the "How-To" Mini Zine Swap, which I really dig, i just need to figure out what I'd do for it!

I agree, the zines that I have received so far are WAY AWESOME!! I'm impressed.  It's nice to see my mini zine collection grow. And thank you Mary Ann, I love organizing the swaps, it's such a great way to share zines, and get a bunch of new ones to check out all at the same time! Working on the next swap idea and will post it up soon. Colin just gave me a great idea and we have the "How-To" idea out there as well.

I got George and Jethro's yesterday (: They were amazing.
Thank you! I got yours today as well and really enjoyed it!  I like the idea of a serialized story in mini zine format! Very cool!
