We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers


A Zine Thing

"Its time we had a zine thing on the peninsula!" 
This was the drive behind the birth of A Zine Thing.
A *place to come meet up with fellow zinesters, discuss, write, read, make, share, create, trade, illustrate, collaborate & celebrate everything zine!
*group/congregation/collective bunch of enthusiasts etc.. physical venue for meetings changes depending on event
More recently, Tasha has been facilitating a range of creative workshops across Melbourne. This has evolved from her love of sharing zines and encouraging children and young adults to express themselves through this medium.
Expect to see many more workshops in the future via A Zine Thing.
Stay tuned for upcoming events!

"THIS IS FRANKSTON" A Community Zine Project
It's time we started thinking about collaborative zine projects!
At the January social catch up we discussed a few possible topical points about frankston city, and I think we should put these, and any others you can think of, together in the form of a community zine project.
The end result is intended to be a documented, real depiction of how frankston  is seen and lived in and what it means to by those that live/work/visit here. This zine will contain words and images drawn from our time spent in frankston: our experiences; honest and raw memories; celebrated and mourned positive and negative and perfectly ugly and conflictingly beautiful all at once - all of it!
Submission forms are available from local hangouts & the submission box is in the frankston libraries foyer. 1ST ROUND SUBMISSIONS DUE 31st MARCH.
For further information check out the fb event page,

THANK YOU to everyone that came along to the launch of THIS IS FRANKSTON yesterday! Special thanks to zinester comrade harps for reading for us from the zine. 

I'm really happy with the way it was received and hope that 'Is THIS Frankston?' will continue to show a diverse, current perspective and creative insight to Frankston life.

Don't forget to check out our tumblr:www.thisisfrankston.tumblr.com 
& remember to send your submissions for the page to: this.is.frankston@gmail.com 

PS. for those of you who didn't make it to the launch yesterday, there were a few copies of THIS IS FRANKSTON zine left in the Cube 37 & Frankston Library foyers.

You can check out the photo album of this community project, including pics taken of the launch here:

If any of you want to post dates when you're interested in catching up as a group to make/share zines - do it! :)

Not quite, but I'm somewhat close by and occasionally visit when I'm not busy with work and school. That said, I would be more than happy to help. If that's okay, of course.

Hi Alannah, you're from the Mornington Peninsula/Frankston region? If so, then welcome aboard A Zine Thing. 

Comment by Alannah Agius on June 6, 2013 at 1:48am

Ugh, you people are in Melbourne! Finally, I've found a few zinesters in my general vicinity. Eeep.

December 2013

We are tribeless and all tribes are ours.
We are homeless and all homes are ours.
We are nameless and all names are ours.
To the fascists we are the faceless enemy
Who come like thieves in the night, angels of death:
The ever moving, shining, secret eye of the storm.
-"Open Letter to Filipino Artists by Emmanuel Lacaba"

PMP's 10th issue to date. An all-poetry anthology that aims to put together in one book trends in contemporary poetry from the Philippines and beyond. An ambitious project that wishes to span the whole planet. 100 poems in one book. 

1. Each poet may submit 1-3 poems (of which the editors may get 1-3 poems for inclusion), with a maximum of 5 sentences bio-note. 
2. Poems submitted must be unpublished. Poems submitted must be cut and pasted in the body of the email. Attach if you want, but please put the poems in the body of the email. It allows us to read and access the poems more easily. Plus if we have to download attachments in a laptop full of viruses while we're running late for work, and there's one attachment per poem, we can't even tell you how pissed we become. 
3. Artists may submit cover art for this project. Cover art is front and back cover with the words Paper Monster Press and Poets of the Apocalypse in the front cover.
4. Artists submitting their work agree to allow PMP to publish their work in zine format (around 50 or so copies), and an e-book format (which will be sold through Paypal, or Amazon, or wherever).
5. Payment is 1 copy of the zine (while supplies last), if not, its a copy of the e-book.
6. Submissions must be sent to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com only. 
7. Deadline is on August 31, 2013.
