Hi! I just finished my second zine (where I learn how to use a typewriter). It's about my mom's life (mostly her experience as a Puerto Rican first gen college student overall badass) and our relationship. Email me at email@example.com if you want to trade! :-)

I've set up a Zine swap over on Swap-Bot:
If you are not a member of Swap-Bot, it is a great website for swapping all sorts of crafts and stuff international, check it out!
I just finished a first issue of Creative Evolution, a zine with a collection of writing--poetry, a few pieces exploring my evolving sexuality, and some other writing loosely related to identity--collages, photography, and line drawings. It's 30 pages double-sided, full paper (8.5 by 11) size. I'd love to trade! If you're interested, just message me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have recently joined this group so I thought I should introduce myself!
Hi, I'm Jemma and I live in Norwich, UK
My first two zines are small faux porn mags. They were made in collaboration under a pseudonym and can be found in full here: www.geniusloki.wordpress.com **Beware adult content!**
My latest zine is entitled "Keiku" and consists of six Haiku with companion pictures composed on my mobile phone this winter, 2012.
All three of my existing zines are small and low budget, if you want copies then just mail me your address and I will happily send them anywhere in the world!

Hi, I finally did an english version of my mini-zine woodchuck #1 from last summer (issue #2 is in the making).I like to call it "outdoor zine", because I usually spread it in the streets, parks and woods of my hometown, hiding it in hollow trees, under rocks and park benches(I check from time to time and "restock" if necessary).
It's about music (Kylesa, Les Savy Fav, Blue Note/Swing Kids,...), how not getting completly consumed and fucked up by your jobs and the mysteriously revolutionary organisation called The Red Squirrel Friends (and how you become a member...), which is also the official organ of that secret organisation;)
If you you are interested and like to swap, just put a note in my inbox!
neither doll houses nor tree houses: on living outside of the gender binary
finished in under 24 hours for the chicago zine fest, this zine focuses on the ups and downs of finding myself outside of the gender binary and attempts to both de- and re-construct various questions about my own gender as well as gender in general. three separate sections discuss feeling pushed out of femininity, how masculinity is viewed as inherent and femininity is viewed as a fictitious performance, how striving for the “perfect balance” of two genders is not plausible nor an adequate solution, acceptance or tolerance (or neither) that i feel in specific spaces, how my radical friends misgender and disrespect me more often than my non-radical ones, the (non-) accessibility of queer jargon and language, how coming out has garnered me the most intense gender assumptions yet, dealing with friends who don’t “get it”, my desire to validate my own identity without stepping on the identity of others, and checking white privilege. 32 pgs, ½ size, b&w. $2-3 or trade. message me or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa (at) gmail (dot) com for more info!
Cold off the hijacked copy machines from an office supply store not near you, I offer MACHINERY Vs. the Sun #2, a self absorbed rag of non-interrelated writings about traveling and chasing rainbows and pots of gold and being a leprechaun. you can learn a lot about cuba and boy scouts and the marijuana industry by reading this, as well as what people say in jail and in bed and why it's important to wave in mexico. will trade for similar genres and i enjoy short fiction and grit.

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #6
my issues with mental health have always been immensely difficult for me to assess, describe, and talk about. an intensely private person, i have kept most of my struggles to myself. in this zine, i attempt to investigate the traces of anxiety, depression, suicide, and alcoholism in my family’s history as well as my own difficulties with these issues. almost split into two zines due to volume, this issue is a hefty assortment of stories, thoughts, and emotions.
eight sections discuss: the secrecy surrounding my family’s history of suicides, a recent suicide in my family, my issues with anxiety and pushing emotions aside, my reoccuring suicidal thoughts and how my identities intersect with them, talking with a fellow queer/trans* friend struggling with suicide, assessing my tumultuous relationship with alcohol and deciding to become consciously sober, what i can do to manage and deal with things, and what i plan to do in the future. there is a trigger warning for the zine relating to depression, anxiety, suicide, self-harm, alcoholism, sexual assault, and abuse - please take care of yerself before you read this - it is intense.
this zine is extremely text heavy, black & white, 46 pages, and 1/2 size. for purchasing or trading, please e-mail youvegotafriendinpaATgmailDOTcom or get in touch with me on here!
