We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Hi just wandered if there was anyone out there is the Birmingham/midlands area? Are there any good zine libraries or shops - I've googled but alas, google has failed me. It would be nice to connect with people in my area on here :)

Connect with me, O Awesome one :p. Lol...you see me every day though :p
Well, Created In Birmingham have got a temporary store in the Bullring that takes zines. Other than that it's pretty much a no-go in Brum. I've heard tales of a place at The Custard Factory, but have not seen such a thing with my own eyes.
Hmm, I think the place in The Custard Factory is that Cutout Shop, but it's not really much of a zine thing to be honest; more of a printing thing. You can find that at cutoutshop.com anyway though if you want to.
Oh, and add yourself to the Midlands Zinester group! :D
There is a Midlands zinesters group here: http://wemakezines.ning.com/group/midlandszinesters

We had a meetup in Nottingham a few weeks ago, and it was quite fun. I believe the next one is "supposed" to be in Birmingham. Join the group and help organize it!
Theres a zine swap in the Bullring? Must have a look out for that.

I've just gone and joined the Midlands group - don't know how I missed that...probably just passed over and assumed it was people from the USA. I'm glad there are some things going on in Brum :)
Well it's not a zine swap; it's a little shop / exhibition type space thing that sells stuff made by people from Brum / the Black Country, and some hand-made stuff like cards. Anyway yeah, they're looking for zines and other stuff to sell :) you should pop in :D and yeah, I guess it doesn't help that there's a Birmingham in the states too. How confusing...
