We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

this is going to sound like a totally lame question and i know i could just go and search online for the answer but.....

id prefer to put it here as a Q and get some answers from some of you guys....

what exactly is a perzine??

i have tonnes of zines such as culture slut*telegraph maam*youre pretty face is going straight to hell*girl swirl* etc etc

am i right in thinking THESE are perzines??

so if someone writes a zine where they write about things that have happened to them*things they want to happen* thoughts and opinions*rants etc thats a perzine??

when does a zine stop being a perzine and becomes a zine?? lol as silly as it sounds, because i have interviews that ive done for mine, so can i still call it a perzine??

sorry i know im sounding totally stupid. ill leave it there :P

yep they're all perzines, and the girls who make them are friends too! A perzine (in my books at least) is when you write about yourself and whatever takes you fancy rather than having a certain topic like a genre of music or a political view with a more editorial way of doing thing.
not stupid...AT ALL!!!
yes you have described 'perzine'
correctly...
a personal zine'....of thoughts/hopes/experiences/rants/raves/reviews/'toons/poetry/fiction...

other 'zines'.............run the 'gamut'...some on
bikes...some on depression...some on cowboy roping....
some on horror films etcetera etcetera.............

just like the magazine shop in town....the one i go to has
2,000 magazines...................sailboats to woodworking, calligraphy to weightlifting

:):)hope i helped..................no question is....EVER....stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Penny!

If you enjoy reading perzines, you should check out the webcomic version of our zine called ButterSword. I don't know if our comic defines what a perzine is, but I would personally call it one.

I hope you check it out and enjoy it.
And no one thinks you're stupid.
