Been dabbling with writing zines since last spring, starting with my first perzine Purgatorials. Just recently I started a fiction lit zine "Annie Wilkes #1 Fan" which are serialized adaptions of the novelettes I've been writing since I was a kid. Several other ideas are in the works-- they're seemingly neverending!

I'm 27 and like art, books, bubbles, collaging, creativity, glitter, nightmares, mail art, sign language, skulls, snowflakes, sparkly things, spikes, stars, tinsel, wings, winter, and writing.
For one whole month on the DCRG circuit I was "Lorna Doom", R.I.T.

"When you get a letter out of the blue from someone you sent your zine to, just talking about their lives, their thoughts as if you were a long time friend. Only happened to me once thus far, but it was fantastic! Handmade envelopes that zines…"

"I don't have any experience with Etsy.. but as far as the name of your zine goes... Change it if you want! That is the beautiful thing about zines. You have no one telling you that you have to write under a specific name. Also, send your zines…"

"Good point on #1. I don't read long announcements either. I've moved it into my profile, I think it's a little more appropriate. I wanna be on team zine! I've contacted or tried to contact you guys before but nothing came of it.…"

Hey guys,I'm new to We Make Zines and still very much a newbie to zines themselves. I read my first zine about a year ago and shortly thereafter put out my own perzine out, "Purgatorials" (I've never been too in love with that title). I've done okay with getting it out via etsy and have done a few trades, but I'm starting to get a little frustrated about the lack of feedback and the slow moving sales. Didn't expect to be a millionaire of course, but some zines sell ridiculously well and others…See More

"I've had an etsy account for about a year. I've have my zines listed on and off and have done okay. Some issues sell ridiculously well, while others don't move at all. Selling on etsy is in constant flux, for zines and other items…"
