Hi everyone! I made an art zine about the derelict and forgotten places in London. Please take a look! And let me know what you think! :D

My first comic zine is out, about a lonely little fish-headed DJ called Theodore knuckle. Illustrated with brush and ink, 12 black and white pages, colour cover. Buy it here or yell me on here if you would like to swap!

i made a zine about football. i like to think that even if you don't like football, there's a chance you might still like it. http://wemakezines.ning.com/photo/albums/sad-goalkeepers

Spill the Zines is looking to expand and feature some articles alongside its reviews and news posts, and we're looking for writers to join our team!  If you're a writer that's passionate about zine culture, we want to hear from you!

Some articles we'd be interested in include:
  • Zine Fest reviews
  • Zines as educational tools
  • Zines as an alternative media
  • Favourite zine series
  • Tips on zine-making
  • Layout ideas
  • Zine do's and don'ts
  • Zine anthology reviews
  • Reviews of books about zines
  • Zines & activism
  • Zines & self-expression
  • Friendships and the zine scene


We're pretty flexible with our writers; all we ask is that you submit at least one piece for publicationevery two months.  Bloggers must be able to adhere to editorial deadlines.

 

What you get:
  • Writing experience: a valuable addition to a portfolio or CV if you're interested in pursing a career in journalism/media. 
  • An audienceSpill the Zines currently averages 1000 readers per month! If you decide to become a regular writer, a link to your personal blog will go in our sidebar, thus increasing traffic for your own projects.
  • A chance to make a difference: We're the only zine blog dedicated to British zine culture and news, and we're getting bigger and better every month.
Alternatively, if you'd just like to write a one-off article as a guest blogger, we'd be up for that too.

Interested? E-mail Cath at spillthezinesuk@gmail.com with a bit about you (age, location, what zines you like to read, whether you write or contribute to zines) and a topic suggestion.

Can’t wait to hear from you!
