I'm new to We Make Zines and pretty new to zines in general.  I'm working on a couple things right now that might actually turn out cool but are more for practice than for selling or trading. I'm 20…Continue

LidFlipper - I'd love to look at your list. I don't know if I know much about the 90s, but maybe a little about the 80s.  :)

I would be interested in helping, maybe I'd recognize some of those zines as I was writing and trading in the 90's. What is your zine going to be about?

Hi everyone! I'm very slowly working on my first zine; I don't expect it'll be ready for awhile (I am happy with some of what I have so far, though). Recently I did some work for a friend and we discovered stacks of old local Twin Cities zines from the 80's and 90's, some Raygun Mags, ancient comics, and more! My interest is in seeing if anyone is familiar with the zines that I found....I'd like to know more about them. If I were to list the zines we dug up, could I trouble someone to take a look and see if they recognize them?

 

I would be eternally grateful!

Cheers,

LidFlipper

I'm teaching a Making Your Own Zine community ed class in Bloomington, MN over three weeks starting 3/2.  Here's a link if you'd be interested:

http://www.bloomingtonrichfieldcommunityeducation.com/insight/regis...=

I'll be posting on my blog ( http://findingjimmy.blogspot.com )about it soon but basically it will be a start-to-finish making your own zine class, with lots of in-class writing exercises to get you out of your own way so you can write what you really want to write! I'll give you some handouts, and you'll have assignments of things to find/make at home to bring for the assembling class, and I'll always have oodles of zines to look at for inspiration.

At the end I'll get everyone's addresses, take your finished zines, then mail you a copy of each person's zine along with your originals so you can go forth and spread your creation!

Stevens Square is interested in hosting us if we have enough interest, which means enough people coming. Hey, zinesters, are you interested in a monthly meeting?
Comment by Merc on July 27, 2010 at 12:54pm
Hi! I'm a 43-yr old Mom now, an old zinester. I used to write a zine back in the 90's and now I've gotten into it again. I have one zine out that is now at the distro Microcosm, and I'm working on about 3 more.

I would really like to have a monthly meeting to get together with other local zinesters! So I started a discussion about it. Pleas comment!
