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.

Hello! I have two issues of my perzine, Pieces, ready and available for trade. Issue #1 is about reading, writing and growing up, all things I thought about for the first couple weeks after quitting my job to be a full-time writer. Issue #2 is about girls and how just wondering if they would ever like me got me nowhere.

Both issues are 1/4 size and 24 pages. As I said, they're both up for trade or $1-2 each depending where you live.

Comment by Hannah (Not Lonely Zine) on April 13, 2010 at 10:15am
I have finished the new issue of Not Lonely!

A6 (1/4 size), 28 pages.

Issue 2 is mostly about saying no to things most people say yes to. There are articles on the drinking scene and why I don't go to pubs/clubs and the personal and political reasons why my partner and I decided not to get married; as well a discussion of the ways I manage my mental health without medication and a nerdy article on my method of "getting into" new albums.

Please see my profile for details of how to get a copy.

NEW DISTRO: currently accepting zines for consideration!

we're into a bit of everything right now: activism, art/design/illustration, comics, the dark & the bizarre, eco-friendly guides, feminism & gender issues, kid-friendly zines (yeah, why not?), how-to guides, literary/fiction, mental health, vegan, and perzines about these topics too. but you can check the full topics list here.

Or check my blog post for all the info!
thanks :)
