Jerianne's Page


I'm Jerianne, editor & publisher of Zine World and other things. I've been making zines since 1993 or 94. I live in Murfreesboro, Tenn. (which is somewhat near Nashville). I work at a public library, where I started a zine collection. And I am the co-administrator for ZineWiki, an open-source encyclopedia devoted to zines, covering the history, production, distribution, and culture of the small press.

Zine World is the largest, and oldest, zine review zine being published in the U.S. Each issue contains hundreds of reviews of zines, comix, books, and other self-published media. We also share resources for zine publishers and readers, including word of mouth on stores & distros, publishing tips, mailing tips, publishing & censorship news, info on zine libraries, info on other review zines, and free classifieds. (Some of this content can also be found on our website.) Zine World was started in 1997 by Doug Holland. I've been a reviewer since the first issue. I took over as editor & publisher in 2000. We have an all-volunteer staff of about 25, including a couple of folks from overseas.

I'm also a publisher of perzines, though not so frequently these days. My last perzine was called Rejected Band Names. I also published a compilation zine called How to Be a Good / Bad Library Patron. My newest zine is called Worry Stone; issue #1 is about living with a partner who has diabetes and who is blind.

the end of Zine World

Posted on January 8, 2013 at 10:32pm 4 Comments

After much consideration I have decided to stop publishing Zine World.

I announced in November my intent to step down ad publisher and head editor of ZW. At that time I had hoped to create a new editorial team to relaunch the zine. A few people stepped forward; unfortunately, we haven't been able to gain traction, and I can no longer continue as the zine's leader. My life has changed over the past few years, and I can no longer give the zine the time and energy it deserves.…

Thanks for the note. If I sent you the call for submissions do you think that you could pass it along to any potential zinsters? I would also be very interested in hearing your ideas about other places that I should post it, or people that I should contact about submission. thanks for the help!

Hey Jerianne -

Tim Scannell directed me to you based on my interest in zine-reviewing. (He said you were definitely the go-to person for any advice or questions concerning the matter...:D)

I'm totally into ordering a copy of Zine-World; I'll be getting my order in the mail. Thanks for the awesome work!
