hello, i'm a 15 year old non binary vegan kid in the midwest US. i have started one zine with a group of friends and we're working on getting it out there. i listen to mostly early screamo and emo so i'll probably talk about that a bit. also hxc, punk, folk punk, shoegaze, lo-fi, etc. recently been getting a bit into feminist and 90s anime, so if you want to talk about that. really i'm interested in the person i'm writing to though, show me music and talk about yourself and your life. i will definitely include art in these letters, please no overaged men requesting to be my pen pal. looking for interesting friends whom can exchange thoughts  :- )) email me at romohobo14@gmail.com

I am each and everyday zine person and i wanna share my stupid art stuff with people.

I am a girl and i am looking for people in the UK to send me stuff in the mail, I would love to be pen pals or zines pals or art pals or whatever kind of pal you want as long we get to send each other stuff.

Unfortunately i can't have penpals from other countrys because it costs me too much of the moneys and what happens is that i wright it out and then never have the spare cash to send it and then i feel bad so UK only.

I have a ton of 2nd class stamps to stick on my brown envelopes and i want to fill them with my stuff. hope i hear back soon from some of you peeps just message me!


Added information if that was not tickling your nipple buds! I love my cat and my boyfriend.I hate House work. 

I sew stuff check me out www.jshomemade.bigcartel.com and I make a zine my next one is going to be a two parter like an episode of castle or any other tv show.

i like game of thrones sorry i mean i freaking love game of thrones.

i read books. (i know alot of people that dont)

i am  honest some people call it blunt.

and my crazy life dream is to become a art and design teacher so that i can share what i know about art and how art can influence your thinking and learning, and how art can help you improve your aid of learning other subjects. by doing and thinking about art a student can see things in a different light and i hope by doing this in the creative field they can take these skills and transfer them to other subjects. Like how to solve a problem in maths or science, and having the convenience to ask questions and by asking questions you learn. I believe this because i have this attitude with my own way of learning.

please send me message for my address or just send me yours i will also send you my zine.!

Thanks for reading

Hi. I'm Matt and I like to get and send mail. This isn't related to any specific zine project or anything, I'd just like to correspond with cool, fun, friendly people. So write me at

Matt F

PO Box 1093

Menomonee Falls, WI 53052


Start a postal conversation in whatever way you want. Relate your life story. Send me a list of your favorite 90's punk songs. Tell me your thoughts on the latest Pixar movie or the current state of hip hop. Whatever. I will write back, as long as there's an address to send something to.

Looking for another pen pal! I spent the last few months hucking off all the negative people I normally write too. So now I'm looking for new creative people who enjoy writing letters. I mostly make mini zines and doodle-y zines. Other things I adore are mail art, ukuleles, honey bees, Frida Kahlo, EE Cummings, illustrations, instant photos, bows and polka dots. You can message me on here, or email me at remikeahi@gmail.com also if you want to get to know me more you can read my blog which is apeachykeenday.blogspot.com. :)

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.

I am looking to start a pen pal project. I love to write fictions, poems, and essays, but am also keeping journals of automatic writing, and would love to be a pen pal with someone. I put together a zine Neon Garden, and am willing to  send along zines as they come out with some of my letters. Tapes, and other stuff  too. My address is:


88 Rose Garden lane

Marshall, North Carolina, 28753
