Over 40 and still at it

Are you 40 and over and still making zines? Maybe you just started in your forties or maybe you have been doing it for 20 years. Zine making is for all ages and all are welcome. This group is for people 40 years old or older who are making zines.

Kids' Zine Trade

Are you a parent or teacher of elementary aged zinesters? I'm both! And I'm looking to try and set up some trades so my students can see other zines made by kids their age in other cites, states, even continents!See More

i think i have plans for July 17th (so i could join you either before or after)

San Francisco places; Modern Times books is a collective, so is Bound Together Books. (There is a used bookstore near Modern Times that is friendly to zines/events but i forgot their name.)  They are pretty political spaces as is Station 40. Needles and Pens is more of a commercial space and kinda uptight but service the zine community. Punk spaces include Thrillhouse Records and 1-2-3-4 Go Records (who also have a store in Oakland). Both of those spaces seem zine event friendly.

East Bay Pegasus Books on Shattuck is very zine friendly but may already be booked for events. Issues and Book Zoo in Piedmont are both into zines/events, pretty relaxed about last minute events yet small. I staff the Long Haul in berkeley on thursdays yet something could be arranged on other days. Rock Paper Scissors, Econ Jam and Wolfman Books are all in/near downtown Oakland and are supportive of zines. You better grab one of the places soon. Near there is a cafe called Black Spring with the owner a person in the punk scene and a writer--so he may be supportive of a zine event. Also there's a place called Grease Diner that seems very DIY and into zines. At one time people could do shit at Nabolom Bakery and the Gilman and it would be cool--though the people most excited about zines don't seem to be working there now.

Hi Dave! I love On Subbing! Here are some Austin recommendations I've collected:

BookPeople is an awesome large bookstore with children's and adult books, plus there's a coffeeshop in the store. Waterloo Records and Whole Foods (vegan food within) are across the street too.

The Austin Public Library (my workplace!) has a zine collection at the Faulk Central Library. I work in the youth section. Come say hi and check out our zines!

Half Price Books has used books.

If you're looking for comics, Austin Books and Comics is my favorite, and also Tribe Comics (south Austin) and Dragon's Lair are great for comics.

Wheatsville (grocery store with a cafe inside) and Bouldin Creek are my favorite for vegan food. Banzai Sushi and Grill has really yummy tofu rolls. This websitehas awesome suggestions for food trailers and such. Full disclosure: I'm not vegan, but some of my good friends are. Sugar Circus and Sugar Mamas both have awesome vegan cupcakes. I've never been to Capital City Bakery, but their baked goods are all vegan. Sweet Ritual has dairy-free ice cream. Yummm. Rabbit Food Grocery is new and looks amazing.

Mother's Cafe & Garden is all vegetarian, Casa de LuzQuickie Pickie is a convenience store with a cafe. My friend recommends their vegan tacos. The Vegan Nom is a food trailer.

Mount Bonnell has a great sunset view and also has a strict curfew rule (I got a ticket there once, so beware!)

Hike and Bike Trail for a great sunset over the river

Hey, Dave! We did trade zines, like 100 years ago! I'm surprised you remember, and can tell you affirmatively my writing has gotten much better since I was a teenager. Would you be interested in trading again, in this decade?

Hi Dave! I 'friended you because I'm reading On Subbing, and I'm lovin' it. My Mom read it first, she works in special education, and she loved it too. I think she even sent you a fan email! :D Anyway, thanks, I'd love to trade zines. I still have copies left of Issue 1 of Minutes to Milleniums. It was the first I ever made, so it's not the best out there, but I do talk a little about my kidneys. I actually finished the zine literally minutes before I was diagnosed with PKD. But yes, I love reading about other illnesses, I can connect and sympathize in ways I really couldn't back when I was "normal". And that's both a humbling and up-lifting experience!
