I've just finished the Ken Chronicles #34, a 24-digest-sized-page zine (plus cover wrap). Inside are some LOCs, stories about travel, a local car show, thoughts on retirement, reviews of music, movies, books & zines, and more (with photos interspersed throughout). $3 postpaid to the USA but always interested in trades (perzines, travel zines, etc., what have you got?)

Stumbled upon this site while searching for signs that zines are still alive and well. I see so many familiar names in this group and it makes me so happy! I've missed reading and making zines so much. I'm happy to be back at it.

The first issue of The Real Ramona48 lovingly hand-stapled pages of the whys and wherefores of Post -Traumatic Stress Disorder, how to spot a crappy therapist, and cats gone but not forgotten. Please message me or email me at therealramonazine@gmail.com if you'd like to trade.

Hi there...

My name is Steven & I'm an art-a-holic. I'm 36 & still at it, making zines & shit...

"Hi, Steven"

I just stopped in to show y'all my latest work in progress... It's a three-man art zine going by the name of Namoustache. Participants include: Chad Moss (not yet in his 30s, but still has beaucoup de street cred), Steven Hughes Purkey (myself), & legend in the making, Sir Fang Ela (boasting 30 plus years of life, as well)...

We're currently at the cut & paste stage of the game & this sucker should be all done & printed by the end of December 2014, for sure. It will be put out under the zine making team name MC Sunflower Jones, which I do with my beautiful partner in crime, Ms. Deirdree Prudence (gorgeypie 30-something zine queen extraordinaire).
Really looking forward to completing this one...it'll have a red cover, white innards, & a black pocket made from construction paper (hidden inside will be a special bonus secret surprise!) You'll have to purchase the zine (or trade with me!) to see what's inside...

Check out our Etsy shoppe in about a week or so to buy a copy:  www.mcsUNFLOWERjONES.etsy.com

Thanks y'all for taking the time to read this post & I look forward to hearing from some of you for trades & shit! Email me at: MCSunflowerJones@ZinesAndShit.com

Thank you, zine freaks & print fanatics...art is whatever you can get away with!

Just completed the latest issue of the Ken Chronicles (#33): 32 digest-sized pages (including covers). It features non-fiction & photos about side jobs I've worked over the years; tabling at Pete's Candy Store Mini Zine Fest; things that break or go wrong around the house; plus some zine reviews and random thoughts.

On its way to my regular trading partners and available to all for $3 (pp to USA) or possible trade (what have to got?)

It's....It's....It's a zine! A zine is born! 'Different Shades of Normal #3 presents:

The rewind and fast-forward edition.' This perzine spans 21 years of writing. It includes failed relationships, depression, self-destruction, grief, self-care, etc. This perzine is typed and is 38 pages. Hurry and get it soon before it goes beddy-bye!

hey everyone! i just discovered this group and was pretty thrilled to find so many old fogies out there! i'm 32, and i started making zines 7 years ago. i just re-released a zine and a poetry chapbook, and i'm working on Minutiae No. 4, my perzine. You can check out all my zines here: www.sprouthead.etsy.com

I just re-released my mini-zine "Genius (Love)" and my poetry chapbook "non sense" with new covers. previously they'd been out of circulation for a few years!
