Hiya!

I'm a twenty-something US expat who is now a citizen of Australia. I like making a variety of zines. I'm definitely open to trades and lean towards perzines, photography zines, travel zines...

 

ZINES

Dear Anonymous V1

Dear Anonymous is a zine of the unspoken. A collection of letters of love, loss and emotions inbetween, the letters are bound to move you.

Dear Anonymous V2

Another zine of the unspoken encompasses a wide range of emotions. From a true love gone to pure rage, volume two will move you.

 

The Perfect Pocket Guinness GuideSoon to be retired - 3 copies left!

This mini-zine is a guide to the perfect pour of Guinness for bar personnel and Guinness lovers alike. With a bit of history and a poem about the dark drink, this guide will have you smiling.

 

Occupy MelbourneSoon to be retired - 23 copies left

A half-fold zine featuring Occupy Melbourne, pictures, features like 'Thoughts From a First Time Protester', and my view of the online uproar when police descended on City Square to evict the protesters.

"I think if the post is public it should be okay. It seems most posts are. Although if there is a physical address or last name included it might by good to ask people if it's okay."

A Bit Spesh

Posted on October 14, 2014 at 11:30pm 1 Comment

Well, I have half a dozen letters now for DA3, and that's good enough for me to get a start on making the issue. 

But, because I love making my life more complicated than it needs to be, I've decided I want to 'freshen up' Dear Anonymous. I need tougher covers (rather than green copy paper) for starters. I also think I'm going to do an intro as well rather than just the letter from me at the end. I was going through 1 and 2, and I realised that people might like some warning about the…

I've recently started my first perzine. That's not to say it's the first perzine I've started. What I mean to say is that I have started a perzine that I fully intend to publish, at which point it will become my first perzine.

It occurs to me that perzines, being of the nature they are, can invite unwanted attention into one's life if one chooses to publish under one's own name. While I certainly don't feel that I should feel ashamed of anything I write, there's also things like…

Dear Anonymous 3 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!

Lessons learned from DA1:

*250 words or less is good (for one page)

*500 words or less is good (for two pages)

 

So, basically, you're right in the 1 - 500 words range, but shorter is better. BUT, this zine is about expression, and I don't want to force anyone to clamp down on their passion just for me. I'm flexible. :)

 

As for content, these letters can be confessionals,…
