Lend us a hand:
I started up www.zinery.co.uk this afternoon as a guide to zine stuff in the UK, it's still half built. There's going to be interviews with zinesters, some tips and tricks for making zines, but the most important thing is the regional guide. Of course I can't fill in the sections for all the places, so that's where I need your help.

Here's the page, there's a form to fill in with your tips, and I'd really appreciate it if people would fill in info, especially for places outside London and Kent & Sussex

Two new zines available: 50:50 Zine #2 - 50 ways to be happy, 50 ways to be sad. Single double-sided A4 sheet.

Change the World in 7 Days - 16 page A6 zine, with a 'change the world' task for every day of the week.

These two new ones, and three older ones can all be bought from rebelgrrlzine.co.uk, or contact me if you are interested in trading.

Hi, apologies for the cross posting but just in case any of you hadn't seen, there is going to be a really great zine related club night in Camden, London on Saturday 17th. Lots of great music, like minded souls, zines and cupcakes, and super cheap too!

The wonderful Laura Paisley & Lydia Harris will be selecting the tunes for your dancing shoes, and you get a free cupcake on arrival. We are also having a zine stall for all your zine-y needs :)

Lots more info here: Girl Germs - Camden

Hello all,
I don't want to cross-post this too much but wanted to let you know I've just launched a little zine distro called Zinemonger, which only stocks free zines. All you do is browse the website http://zinemonger.blogspot.com , choose zines up to a weight of 90 grammes and supply the postage, either by sending a self-addressed envelope with a 47p large letter stamp, or by sending me the cost of postage by Paypal if you live overseas. Realistically it'll probably work easier for UK users. Full instructions are on the site. Please read them carefully as this will save time for all of us. Have fun!
Cheers,
Ed

I have three new zines ready!

You can see details and / or buy with paypal at rebelgrrlzine.co.uk or contact me on here if you are interested in trading, or just send trades (for similar) to me at
Pippa
PO Box 4663
Sheffield
S1 9FN
United Kingdom.

Basically, the three zines are:
Rebel Grrl Zine: The Survive Issue
This is a feminist zine aimed at survivors of sexual abuse and sexual violence. It is mainly aimed at women and girls, and is a 24 page A5 size zine, photocopied.

How to Write a Zine or THE ART OF PROCRASTINATION
This is ostensibly about the process of creating a zine, but is really all about procrastination - its joys and frustrations, and contains various procrastination tools and ideas within :)
This was written for the 24 hour zine project. It is a 24 page A6 zine, photocopied.

50:50 Zine #1
Double sided A4 page, 50 things I love on one side, 50 things I hate on the other. Simple as!

Photos to follow when I find my USB cable.

i think the basement got flooded and they were looking on moving to a new premises...dunno what became of it.
Comment by ray k on August 9, 2009 at 4:14am
there used to be a co-op place called The Basement which may well still be running, I'm sure they'll have zines. Also, I'm pretty sure they have at least one indie comic shop, but I don't know what it's called. Man I am seriously useless.

They had a zinefest last year so there are definitely places where you can go, i just don't know them!
