I'd just like to re-post my address and whatnot.

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm 19, and a Sophomore at William Paterson University, where I am majoring in English-Writing. My favorite hobbies are reading and writing; I've completed a long novella and a script for a graphic novel, and I'm at work on a third. (I have a well-connected cousin who might just get me published.) I also write short scripts.Though I read a wide variety of authors (Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, H.C. Anderson, Albert Camus, etc.) I prefer the sci-fi and fantasy genres, particularly P.K. Dick, Stephen King, Lovecraft, and more. I used to make an art/lit zine with my friends, but we more-or-less quit when we went to college. Since I'm asked frequently enough, I'm thinking of writing and composing a chapbook containing tips, advice and my personal experience that's intended to help young writers complete a larger narrative. Besides this, I'm obsessed with the concept of snail mail, and I love connecting with other creative people, so having the opportunity to achieve both, I'm rather excited.

Looking for more people to write to. I'm not sure what information to include. I've made a few mini zines that I'd love to swap. I also love music, questions and long ranty letters. So yeah, I guess the only way to get to know me is to just write me! (or let me write you!)

my email is remikeahi@gmail.com

you can also read my blog to get to know me better.

I hadn’t really set out to create a zine.
It just sort of happened that way.
I was working on some of my music, and considering how I want to release it.
Then, I got to thinking about Compact Discs and how finding CD carrying cases is getting increasingly difficult.
No one makes them anymore, just CD wallets...ugh!
What are people doing with their jewel cases?
It seems like everyone takes better care of their comic books.
So, I thought, why not package it in a comic book?
From there I gradually stumbled into zineworld.
But, I wanted to make mine more like the mail-art packages I had made for friends as a teenager, a big weird "box of stuff."
But, everyone likes to browse.
So, being able to skim through the pages is still important.
I figure I could glue an envelope to the back and stuff the goodies in there.
Is it still a zine? A book? An album? Something else? I don’t know.
I may continue to experiment with it as I go along.

Content-wise there is really is no overall theme; personal stories, comix, found objects, etc.
It is an odd mix of miscellaneous contents.
But, my music can be like that sometimes too.
So, it all works out.

Drop me a line and I'll drop one back.

Hello, My name is Stacey. I'm 24 living in Iowa. I spend most of my time writing letters, decorating and making envelopes, sending postcards, reading, writing, swap-botting, and many other things. I love having pen pals that actually respond in a timely fashion. I don't want any email penpals, I prefer good ole snail mail so shoot me a letter, a zine, a post card, whatever and I'll respond as long as you send your address or I can read the return address. I love long letters but I'll accept anything mail related. Please, make my day, Mail is the best part of it!

Comment by Maria M. on September 7, 2013 at 9:07am

Hey, everyone! I'm Maria, 21, recently moved to Iowa City, IA. I'm a brand new grad student struggling with a book addiction. I also enjoy art (mostly appreciating it), music (classical, post-rock, random other types), watching tv and movies (Doctor Who, I'm a Bryan Fuller fangirl, Pacific Rim... etc) , sleeping, baking, poetry, tea, comics (Sandman, V for Vendetta, Fables, Sandman Mystery Theatre...), colorful things, and things that smell good (even people, but I don't sniff random people that's creepy). I'm collecting ideas and plans for my first zine... but I haven't really put it together yet. I'd be up for a snail mail pen pal or an email one (though I'd probably limit the amount of snail mail people I talk to...) . Correspondence is one favorite form of procrastination. If you want to see some snippets of my life before deciding to talk to me, I've started a blog: here and I have tumblr. (Also I like postcards!). Leave me a comment or send me an email at crescentsandwords [at] gmail [dot] com if you want to chat!
