Is Mark Perry still alive?
1 Reply

I found some of my dad's old zine collection a couple of years ago. Today I was writing about it for my next issue and I was wondering if anyone knew if Mark P (Sniffin' Glue) is still alive or not.…Continue

Where do people get typewriters from?
23 Replies

I've been looking around online but all the typewriters I've seen have been far outside the price range of your average zine writer. And before someone suggests it: I'm a frequent browser of charity…Continue

Zines in Braille

I love zines. I need to get quicker at Brailling. The obvious solution? Transcribe zines! Does anyone know of any zines already written in Braille? My own zines have always been cut and paste, not…Continue

I write xyz, a zine about genderqueerity that comes out (hah!) every other month. It's article based, so I've had a lot of people ask me if it's a compzine, but nope. I just don't have the attention span to write twenty pages on the same subject.

Issue 1, Nov/Dec 2010 A few articles on etymology, one on hormones, some pretty pictures and some history. 24 pages inc cover. <- This can be found at marching stars distro, woot!

Issue 2, Jan/Feb 2011 Babies and kids! How children relate to gender, raising a gender-variant child, and gender in children's media. 24 pages inc cover.

Issue 3, Mar/Apr 2011 The place of femme in society. How it gets maligned, what make up is for, a long article on the colour pink, various other bits. 28 pages inc cover.


Issue 4, May/June 2011 A splitzine with Chloe Bunny. My half is about queer bodies and bodily autonomy. 48 pages inc cover.


Issue 5, July/August 2011 Community and conversations: interviews with people who identify as queer about what gender means to them in queer spaces. 28 pages inc cover.


Hunkerdown is "a reaction to how the mainstream media play poverty against ethics when it's perfectly possible to have both", which is my wankiest way of saying it's about eating blackberries and hating rich people.

I've also written a one-off perzine called I FOUGHT IN A WAR. It's text-only and it's about growing up queer in a military family and going to military school. 32 pages.

I ♥ trades. Unfortunately I can only afford to trade within Europe. Shipping UK to US/Canada is a lot more expensive than the other way round. I am hella into zine accessibility, so if you want any of my zines in LP/braille/on coloured paper, drop me a note. zisforzine@hotmail.co.uk

Check it out! Not many applications yet, but hopefully things are going to perk up a bit over the weekend when the lovely Catherine Elms posts about it on Spill The Zines.

Submissions call: Disabling Fallacies, a zine about misconceptions of disability

Posted on December 14, 2010 at 12:30pm 3 Comments

That's quite a long post title, isn't it? Oh well. Here's the skinny:

I'm making a comp zine about the misconceptions people have faced with regards to their disabilities.

Are you going to take a shotgun to the next person who tells you it's all in your head?

Do media representations of your disability make you grit your teeth?

Ever had someone ask does he take sugar, or variations…

Hi Will, sadly I dont have a copy of Chandler Is Gay to make a copy from! If I did I would, so I might get in touch with some of my friends who had copies.

Hi Will,  Luke from the zine store Sticky in Melbourne, Australia here.  I'm keen to get some copies of your zine to this part of the world.  Send me an email at: Luke@stickyinstitute.com and we can make it happen.

Oh okay, I'm glad you enjoyed #7. Want to trade Here in My Head #6 for the issue of xyz about poverty and ethics? I'm actually studying liberation theology at the moment, which has a lot to say about poverty and oppression and its relation to Christian ethics, so yours sounds like an interesting zine for me to read. :)

Sounds great! Want to trade xyz #1 and #2 for Here In My Head #7? It's a split-zine with Tukru, so it's fairly long. Are you in the UK?

Issue #6 is 1/3rd sized, yes - I did it by making #5 and #6 on the same flatsheet; the pages of #6 took up about 7 inches of each flat, and #5 took up the remaining 4 inches! :) The only problem is that issue 5 ended up being way more popular than issue 6, but I still have to get the exact same number of each printed, so I've ended up with huge surplus piles of issue 6 that no one wants!
