Well, I'm currently working on my first (technically second but I just need to rehaul it completely, it's got such a blah boring design) zine, it's a perzine called THE UNIVERSE AND YOU: AN OWNERS MANUAL [falling in and out of love with holden caufield], and it should be done in a few weeks! Id love to do a trade :D

Quite new here, I'm actually wrapping up the final edit and looking forward to the copy and collate phase within the next week or so. It's a perzine called iPiphaneia...(a play on words-ipod meets the Greek epiphaneia) It's a collection of thoughts and reflections inspired by songs on my playlist in the exact order they played at the time I decided to turn that fateful day into a zine. I'm hoping I'll be so inspired to make it a series.

I just ran off my first draft of my Very First Issue YAAAAAAAAY! It's a collection of drabbles, both autobiographical and fictional, some a little of both.

I hope to have the first issue all together by the end of Feb and get it out to distros and such. I'm also into leaving a few in public places- has anyone had any experience with that?

Um, um, um, yes-
I'm new too! :-D

I got into zines looking for independent comics / printed webcomics (I like those!) a few weeks ago and though I'd give this a try! (It's so exciting and creative!)
The only thing I've made so far, is a small guide for myself on what NOT to do and tips I've found around the web. It's just a small 1/4 folded paper.

I am planning to do a comic/text zine on running...in a very broad sense...in, to and away. Yes yes.

I got introduced to zines through some creative writing classes. In the first one, we put together a class zine. Next time we had one of those classes, there wasn't enough interest to do a group zine, but we were encouraged to do our own. I started one, then fizzled out on the project. Then I took a college class, and we were required to each do our own zine, so I was ahead of the game. That was spring of this year. I'm working on my next one and plan to have it done by July 1 of next year. Plenty of time, but this one is a work of self-therapy, so I wanted to give myself plenty of time but be able to have it for next year's Portland (Oregon) Zine Symposium.

i've never been so proud to be a noob.
i released my first zine the end of last month, its a feminist art journal type thing.
Comment by Ren! on May 24, 2009 at 7:23pm
I'm not sure if I can be considered so new; I've been into the scene for... 6, 7 years now. Regardless, I've made one zine at all, and it wasn't so great, working on my second ever. Always full of ideas I never put together.

Let's hope I manage to put NOM! together, this one's gonna be fun.

I've had a load of excitment to burn off and dove in to making two issues at once of a perzine called 'Cat's Teeth' and philosophical type zine called 'Absent Present'. Details on my profile.
I keep waking up in the night and scribbling down ideas. eep
