Hi zine peeps!

Just heard about this event being run by my mate Marie, she's looking for zinesters to sell their wares at the Trap2 gallery launch next week... please contact me if you're up for it.

And please please forward this event to all your zining colleagues!

Hmmm, I made my first flier in 1985 and first zine in 1989. Do I win the oldness contest?

YAYYYYY! I'm 33. I started making zines in 1994. Havent made my very own zine in a while, but i teach zine-making and organize events. I have a 6 year old boy, a full time day job as a copywriter, and am part of a local theater company. I'm busy, but i like it because I am too poor to travel---I would love to visit the zine symposiums and tour around and do fun stuff like i did when i was in my 20's.. but being broke is just different with a kid. So, here I am, making my stationary world fun, and meaningful. I really love working with young people and trying to pay forward the kind of art influences I was lucky enough to have as a teen...

I'm 34 and making zines... The more I do it, the more zines I read and the more I read about zines, the more I want to see people making them. I always wanted one of those little printing presses with rubber letters as a kid - how is it that we lose the desire for that kind of thing? I want to get people excited about expressing themselves and zines are such an awesome way to do that!

Ewww... bit of verbal diarrhoea there...

im 33. i first heard about zines when i was about 28, but i only started getting into them and reading them when i was 31. i really wish i had heard of them years ago, i could have had so much material to make a zine about. im slowly working on my first zine, i started it for a zine trade project on another site but i failed to get it started in time, so its a slow process.

I'm 44 and a noob to making zines. Actually that's not true, I've participated in several mail art projects over the years that resulted in collaborative zines, but I've only just made my first one.
PS I am a parent of two preteen girls.

Geez... I only published my 1st zine a mere 6 months before turning 30. I´ve got 8 issues under my belt now at age 33. I regularly correspond with a handful of zine publishers who are in their 50s & 60s. Whenever I start to complain about feeling old & out of touch with the world it´s these folks who set me straight, put me in line & remind me of how much living (& self-pubIishing) I still have ahead of me... Age is only a state of mind.
