Beautiful Mess #2 is out! This issue features moving away from Calgary and trying to find myself in Montreal, dealing with an identity crisis and venting my frustrations from working in the beauty industry. I talk about learning to love myself after being self destructive for most of my life and looking back on past work, as well as a large piece about my adventure to Burning Man. There is an obituary for my favourite snail, a description of how snakes eat, and a sexy centerfold, plus more!

half size, 40 pages
$3 plus shipping or trade

A perzine about becoming more yourself as you grow up. It's got words, pictures, a staple and some designery. Quarter-size long like a takeaway menu, black & white. AUD$3.50 to anywhere in the world or we can trade. :)

I AM very purrrr sonal. Contact me!

I am making a mini-zine (8 fold vert cuts) once a week starting with the Portland Zine Symposium 2009 going to 2010. IF you would like any of my zines or all of them I will send them to you free of charge within the USA, or for trade to anywhere else on planet earth.

Minis so far:

All Things Ordinary #1 is out now! This is a personal zine about the last month i spent in Buffalo, NY (where i have lived all 27 years of my life) before i moved to Portland, OR (where i've been living for the past 4 months). It mostly consists of reflections on my time in Buffalo, thoughts about what lies ahead of me in Portland (i had never visited Portland before i moved here), and things that happened to me during my last month living in Buffalo. It is 24 pages and quarter sized.

I love trading zines and would prefer that, but if you don't want to/can't trade it is $3.00ppd. My paypal address is derekneuland@gmail.com.

send zine trades or $3.00 well hidden cash/money order to:

I am happy to announce the first issue of my perzine called "Creepy Dolls", available in my etsy shop or for trade for other perzines.

Is there a list somewhere of all the perzine titles? I have an idea of what to call mine, but don't know if it's already being used. Maybe the list is different on a couple websites? any advice??

I've just finished the first issue of my Perzine, Squidling is Dancer. It's a half-sized 8 page zine with a bunch of tutorials and exerpts from journal entries that are from up to 2 years ago. If anyone wants to trade, I'd be interested in other Perzines, mostly. And if we do trade, I'll write a brief critique/review of your zine if you'll write one for me (I want reviews to publish on the back of the next issue of "Squidling is Dancer") (all due credits will be included, of course). Photoes of the issue can be found on my userpage...if you're interested, comment me or e-mail me at indiesquidling@gmail.com! Thanks!
