I remember "Maximum Rock and Roll" doing an issue of punks over 30, and I thought I'd never live that long. I was probably over 30 when it came out though. Here's to the last 30 years... and the next 30! I hope I can still be publishing that long.

Wow. I feel old! Some of my zines and minis have been in print for over 10 years!

glad to see some of us old farts in this group - i'm 45, been doing zines since the mid/late 80s - mainly music and movies and i'm slower these days than then but i still have a couple going... weird being online though since there was a time when i had drawers full of correspondence and zines and tapes from people (and viceversa) now its all emails back and forth... :)

Happy Birthday, Melanie! From a girl who spent her 30th birthday without food or heat in a blizzard-stalled Transylvanian bus.

I'm so glad for this and to see how many people over 30 are still making zines and reading them!! I'm technically not 30 yet, but I will be in 4 days (so I figured I should count, right?!)
I've been zining since I was 15, so for half my life now and I still love it as much as I did when I started (even tho I don't produce as many zines as I did back then since I have less time due to having two kids, but still, I'm at it!!) I'm hoping to do a zine about my life 15 years ago, how I got into zines and how it changed my life. It just seems so appropriate now since it is half my life! :)

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!

**This event is planned to start at 19:00 on 05 February 2009 at 47 Mowlem Street, London E1**

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...
