The day after the london zine symposium, I intend to get the bus from newcastle to the beach and sand dune system that runs in an almost continuous line up to scotland. i will camp on the beach, doodle and drink coffee away from the city (unless it rains). This will become my next zine (probably a mini zine), and i would like you to be a part of it by giving me a post address (uk only) that i can send a postcard to.

I will just take a photo of some element of your postcard and include that in the zine so your effort is minimal to say the least!

It might be a doodle of a puffin, or a moan about feeling lonely, but it will be from the dunes, and the sand, and the early morning birdprints and seals in the water.

You HAVE to tell me by sunday 6pm or i will actually be living on the beach and unable to see your address! email = oldglen at gmail.com
(Say hi if you're at the zine symposium too!)

Kerouac-inspired Zine calling for creatives of all discliplines along the theme of 'FREEDOM'.

Hi all, I really wanted to tell you all about my new Independent, Kerouac’s Dog ® it's is a brand-spanking new, independent quarterly set to form a bold and exciting creative platform for new writing, design, photography, fashion and plenty more. It’s inspired by Jack Kerouac and the 1950s Beat generation and in honour of these, will eagerly exhibit the newest and bravest work and folios, from creatives all over the world. All tied up with key themes of freedom; truth; beauty; love; travel; wanderlust; sex; taboo; and fringe. The whole thing will be beautifully designed and printed top-to-bottom in black and white (because we have a passion for all things black and white).

Issue 1 needs you – The very first Issue. ‘Freedom’ will be released as a limited print-run later in the year, and available to buy online, to a global audience. So we’re calling on creatives for submissions on this theme and this theme only. As the whole thing is in black and white, the only stipulation is that the stuff you send needs to be in – or look gorgeous in - monochrome. It can be old work, or new work, we don’t mind. We won’t be able to pay you, but we’re happy to put names and URLs with each submission used so please send these through, along with your work.

I'd also LOVE to trade with anyone, as I like collecting all sorts myself.

Hello

I've been away from Zines for a very long time and have just come back to it. I'm just printed (photocopied) the first issue of my new zine called "If Things Don't Alter They'll Stay As They Are'. In issue one is a 20 page half size zine, in it I ramble about my father (who has aspergers), family, drinking, sharing a bed with your partner and turning 30.

£1.00 with a S.A.E am happy to trade for zines or other stuff :)

I have finished the new issue of Not Lonely!

A6 (1/4 size), 28 pages.

Issue 2 is mostly about saying no to things most people say yes to. There are articles on the drinking scene and why I don't go to pubs/clubs and the personal and political reasons why my partner and I decided not to get married; as well a discussion of the ways I manage my mental health without medication and a nerdy article on my method of "getting into" new albums.

Please see my profile for details of how to get a copy.

I just messaged members of this group about 2 north east events. I hope that's not annoying - let us know if it's bad etiquette!

But do consider a visit to the north east, and ALL OF YOU are invited to send me a bundle of your zines and I will guarantee sale-or-return of them at the ace Diy-aye 2010 event on 1st May.
I'm emailable on oldglen at gmail dot com and will be spending all of sunday catching up on communications with lovely people that have sent me things, written etc..
love to all!

Hi all,
I recently finished issue #1 of my perzine, Not Lonely. It's 40 A6 (quarter size) pages and has a a mental health emphasis - ramblings about the medications I have taken and why I've decided not to take them any longer, what it feels like to have lived in 5 different places by the age of 25, how I always procrastinate instead of getting work done, how I never seem to say the right thing and a few other wee rants and thoughts.

More info on my page if you're interested in getting hold of a copy (& I hope you will be).
