I think people that write zines or are just writers period seem to be more of hermits. I know I kinda like that I'm the only zine creator-o wait-my friend Mel just started doing some also! I should try'n get her on here! It's def a fun place to network. Plus its more exciting to find people from all over than try'n find people in the hood, especially since most of them here are very serious and political and I'm not.

I used to live in a tiny town in the middle of the English countryside and I knew more people that made zines then than I do now that I live in London. I think living in a big city can be just as isolating if you don't manage to find the right gang.

I wanted to trade rare weird movies with people in my area, but ended up meeting more people from all over instead. I've made a lot of friends that I've corresponded with for years, long before I even had internet, we just used to write by mail. Some of them still don't have the internet, so we still do. I used to try to sell or trade some of my `zines, but now I don't, it's just fun & nice to hear compliments about it!

I live in the woods where no one has ever heard of a zine unless I tell them about it. Most people appear atleast vaguely interested, and I pass all sorts of zines around, but I don't know of anyone besides me around here who collects them.

You's think in a city the size of San Diego someone other than me would publish, or at least appreciate `zines! But apparently not, not even my friends and co-workers will have anything to do with mine. So yes, I'm a lonely `zinester!

Are there any zinesters in Nova Scotia. besides me???

It's weird-there probably are more zinesters in my area but I just don't hang w/ 'em. They may not like my sillyness and crude humor, anyway.

I am writing an article about We Make Zines for the upcoming issue of Zine World. I want to ask some folks some questions. If anyone in this group wants to participate, message me and I'll send the questions to you. Thanks!
