"responding here as this got long:
I guess with zine people you have to do what you're doing now, make sure you ask lots of questions and contact people directly. With the ILCW zine fair, I put together a huge list of melb-based zine people and…"
"Candace, I'll probably have it in either a nightclub venue or large community hall space.. I have experience with organising all ages gigs and events for children, but this will be my first time running an event where i need to co-ordinate lots…"

Do you organize a zine event? A zine picnic? zine readings or a zine fest/symposium/gala/etc? This group is for you!Talk to other zine organizers about workshop, promotions, fundraising, getting event space, etc.See More
"I'm interested in ready any and all copies, however I'm not sure that I really have enough to trade.. the quality of my zine isn't much just yet. However, if it's alright with you, I can put you on my mailing list and send you…"
"Hi there! Thanx for getting in touch!

Here's my address:
"Hey, I'd love a copy of your zine.. I can give you a copy of mine in return, it is a perzine with writing on skunneling/draining, learning to code, housemates, my son's first punk gig and more.

"hey, just thought I'd introduce myself.. I'm reasonably new to zine making, only having released two so far. I live in Footscray, Vic. Would love to meet some other zinesters and go to zinester gatherings, unfortunately missed out on the…"
hi! i was just wondering if a perzine (letters that are compiled into a zine) would interest you. I've just recently completed ALPOLG1... for more info, you can visit my site. hope to hear from you soon.
I saw your call for submissions for a Winter themed zine. I have some winter poems I would like to share. If you are interested in reading them and deciding if you want to use them, please put a message on my comment wall, or add me as a friend and send me an email.
hey, hows it going? sorry about the late reply, been busy and stuff.
im into mainly hardcore/punk/powerviolence/folk punk/ska etc. where you from? im well up for doing a sweet mix cd trade! wanna trade zines too? what zines do you do? cool
hey Lou Lou. thanks for your zine, i loved it, in particular the articles on your flat mates and your sons first punk gig. lucky kid, i had to wait till i was 14. your the first person ive traded with in melbourne, so i too was excited to recive yours.
would love to trade again, busy at work on issue 2 at the moment, si hopefully it should be out real soon
Hmmm, sadly I don't think I do have any copies left except my own archive one. It was over 5 years ago! If you're stupidly keen (and i don't know why you would be) you could look at the state library - i'm pretty sure i saw a copy in their collection at the open day.
But I totally recommend suburb themed zines. Mine was a compilation zine and my friend Eve edited the Northcote half so we had suburb war with all the zinesters going in to bat for the suburb they preferred. I guess it'd be interestin reading now given how much those two suburbs have both changed.
I'd be way keen to participate in a westside zine if you're still living out this way?
