Microcosm Publishing now carries my zine Bookstore Thief!! I am so excited! Partly because I get to be part of such a great organization, and partly because I get a good deal buying their zines! There are soooo many good ones there.

Issue 2 of "If Things Don't Alter They'll Stay As They Are" is ready now. It's better than the first I reckon, more to read. I write about men thinking it's ok to grope women on a night out, my expereiences of counselling, having children or not.

It's half size, 20 pages, B&W.

Trade away people.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that I've finished my first zine. It's called Peach, Plum, Pear and it's a perzine dealing with mental health issues including suicide and self-harm.
It's black and white, half-size, 26 pages and zigzag stitched together with my lovely Bernina sewing machine. There are a few photos of it on my page.
They're £1.50 each or for trade :)

Not Lonely #3 is now available!

Issue 3 is about the fine line between fact and fiction, not throwing things away, being pestered by dodgy men on public transport, (somewhat comically) failing at interviews, insomnia, the reality check of life after university and alternative menstrual products. It's part-handwritten, part-typed and made in a cut-and-paste style with lots of pretty backgrounds and vintage images.

I love trades! Or the price is £1 UK / £1.50 Europe / £2 Elsewhere. Please contact me via my page on here or email not_lonely_zineATyahoo.co.uk if you'd like a copy.

Hello

I've been away from Zines for a very long time and have just come back to it. I'm just printed, the first issue of my new zine called "If Things Don't Alter They'll Stay As They Are'. In issue one is a 20 page half size zine, in it I ramble about my father (who has aspergers), family, drinking, sharing a bed with your partner and turning 30.

£1.00 with a S.A.E am happy to trade for zines or other stuff :)

Half perzine/half Kerouac-inspired Zine calling for all creative submissions along the theme of FREEDOM.

Hi all, I really wanted to tell you all about my new Independent, Kerouac’s Dog ® it's is a brand-spanking new, independent quarterly set to form a bold and exciting creative platform for new writing, design, photography, fashion and plenty more. It’s inspired by Jack Kerouac and the 1950s Beat generation and in honour of these, will eagerly exhibit the newest and bravest work and folios, from creatives all over the world. All tied up with key themes of freedom; truth; beauty; love; travel; wanderlust; sex; taboo; and fringe. The whole thing will be beautifully designed and printed top-to-bottom in black and white (because we have a passion for all things black and white).

Issue 1 needs you – The very first Issue. ‘Freedom’ will be released as a limited print-run later in the year, and available to buy online, to a global audience. So we’re calling on creatives for submissions on this theme and this theme only. As the whole thing is in black and white, the only stipulation is that the stuff you send needs to be in – or look gorgeous in - monochrome. It can be old work, or new work, we don’t mind. We won’t be able to pay you, but we’re happy to put names and URLs with each submission used so please send these through, along with your work.

I'd also LOVE to trade with anyone, as I like collecting all sorts myself.
