Hi, I'm Paul.  I'm 34 and live in the sweaty south of Texas.  I'm looking for penpals into the occult, the paranormal or fringe areas of music including: avant-garde electronica, dark ambient, black ambient, etc. along with death metal, black metal, doom or sludge.  I need mental stimulus.  I'm also somewhat into art, Taoism, H.P. lovecraft, H.R. Giger, etc. etc.  My life has gotten stranger and stranger over the last few years paranormal wise.  I'd like to explore strange worlds and realities.

Write me at Paul Latour

FREE FRIENDSHIP from a white male from Southern Calif.  I'm an open-minded ole hippie who loves all, of all colors.  Live music was my life.  I last lived by the beach in Carlsbad with my two K-9 attack cats.  Please write me.  I promise to be a respectful pen pal whom will always write, if you write me.  Mike :).

Hi guys. I'm an uncloseted (i.e., gay) poet and singer-songwriter from San Diego, California in my late 20s/soon-to-be early 30s. I'm charmed by words, tacos, tattoos, slasher flicks and fight sports. I've written a couple of poetry e-books, nothing too serious. And I'm gonna be introducing my very first (ever) set of zines at the end of the month. I love, love, LOVE to write (I take photos of my personal journal for my Tumblr page) and meet new people. Gay, Straight, Male, Female, everyone's cool. Wanna be my pen pal? Send me an e-mail (whiskeyandfolk@gmail.com) and I can send my snail mail address, or we can be e-pals, whichever. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi my name is Francesca I'm 20 years old and I live in Utrecht NL (although I lived in Italy most of my life). I study Economics and Law at University.

I'm looking for a pen pal with whom trade zines or letters or both.

I like to talk about: northern California, the radio, punk music, chemistry, beginner's astrophysics, ecology, Paris, everyday feminism, food, economics, poetry, bikes, cats, you tube, clothes, hair products & dye, photocopies, libraries, activism, yoga, meditation, incense flavors, home decoration.

See if you can relate to one or two of those things. Please don't write if your first letter is gonna be a list of your accomplishments in life--- I like chill correspondence with things like, how's your typical day like where you live 

Thank you for reading!

My address for now is (check my page for changes):



3584 CE

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

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm 20, and a Junior at William Paterson University, where I am majoring in English-Writing. My favorite hobbies are reading and writing; I've completed a short novel and a script for a graphic novel, and a plethora of stories, poems, essays, and scripts for cartoons and comix. I also "edit" a satirical zine called Strangury.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, Lord Dunsany and more. I used to make an art/lit zine with my friends, but we more-or-less quit when we went to college. 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. I'd very much like to correspond, trade, collaborate, etc.

Hit me up at theenigmanj@yahoo.com

or send a letter to:

Thanks for reading, and I hope to hear from you soon.

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.
