a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Started Sep 20, 2016
I live in London, come from Medway, have lived in a few other places too.
If you are a UK person, send me an SAE big enough to fit a 1/4 of a sheet of A4 + a 1st class stamp, and I will send you a zine. As well as zines, I like to trade for viewmaster reels, particularly of South America.
I like detective shows, latin and Sonic Youth. I am far too lazy to fill these kind of boxes out very thoroughly.
I make assorted zines including Fanzine Ynfytyn, Imaginary Uncles, Being Editors, Pobble Eh Come? and other assorted bits of time wasting nonsense.
Fanzine Ynfytyn has whatever I feel like putting in it, mainly articles about strange stuff that's happened to me/music festivals, short stories about the private lives of inanimate objects, top 5s of various things (I have High Fidelity disease), black and white photos and vegetarian recipes.
Pobble Eh Come is a tiny pocket zine of surrealist collages made from things like magazines for hypochondriacs and Norweigian textbooks, it's in no way serious.
Imaginary Uncles does what it says on the tin, 100 word portraits of imaginary and infuriating uncles, with accompanying illustrations.
Being Editors is a children's lit zine. I'm currently working on two issues, one about Diana Wynne Jones (with an interview with the lady herself) and another about Edith Nesbit.
I have a website: http://www.emmajanefalconer.com , perhaps you will care to peruse it. It has details of all my zines.
Here is my Etsy: emmajane.etsy.com where you can kindly send me money in exchange for things

This one is about the experience of growing up holidaying in a caravan at French campsites. A typical holiday for British people, but probably weird and exotic for those from further away. Available for £2 from my shop (includes UK postage- international extra)
I have two new zines available this month. This is a mini zine I made for the 24 hour zine project, which runs every July. You have to write and layout 24 pages within 24 hours. No pre-preparation is allowed. It's a fun challenge. Available from my shop for £1 (including UK postage).

I had two never-before-seen zines to bring with me to the Sheffield Zine Fest (photos of the festival coming later in the week). Issue 22 was new, whereas issue 14 has a bit of a history. I made no. 14 a few years ago, mislaid the pages, found them again last year and finished some bits off, made a few copies, mislaid them again moving house and then found them again recently. Now they're safe in a folder with all my other…Continue
I used to go to Austria quite a lot to run workshops in schools, travelling from school to school each week. I started writing this zine after my first trip to Vienna in 2010, didn't finish it, and then finished it off a couple of years later. I made a few copies at the time, but then mislaid the pages again when moving house, so barely anyone has read it. I recently found them again,…Continue
