a place for zinesters - writers and readers
This is my first year doing this and I am super stoked! So without further ado, here is the first thing on the list:
Make a Top 10 list of reasons why you love zines:
1. Creating them is cathartic for me.
2. I get to combine my love of writing and collage in super creative art form that is accessible to everyone.
3. Attending zine fests! And tabling at them too.
4. Meeting like-minded zinesters
So I did it in 2013, but didn't do it last year due to trips and medical reasons. But now that medical shit is sorted, and I got married, and I came back from my trip last weekend, I got no excuses and don't need any because I love it!
Hurray for International Zine Month!
Stolen Sharpie Revolution website posted a new list of activities for 2015, and I hope to be able to do them all, including the 24-Hour Zine Thing challenge, and constant trips to the post office. My fingers…Continue
A fresh stack of zines in the post! Thanks Fishspit. Keep an eye out for the rebound.

Much to my relief FAH #1 is now finished and printed! FAH (Fixing A Hole) is a perzine with mental health issues and personal development as common theme. In this first issue photographs taken with Lomography cameras, an essay on Lomography as a way to play, an essay about society being in myself first and a number of assorted journal notes, with a focus on music. I've a first print run of twenty copies to trade on stock. Please contact me if you like to swap zines!

I do street feedings once a week and have a literature box with material from many different philosophies. I'm having a hard time scraping up things for it. I do this under The Vegan Libertarian Benevolent Society:

I intend to finish next month, July 2015, my second zine, FAH (Fixing A Hole). It continues were my first zine, Veill, ended. In FAH more free self colour, thanks to far less Inner Critic, more photos, more writing. I will post some early progress shots here.

My Sister's Closet was a zine i created to share with others a successful clothing swap party event I helped to organize. The group Teryia i belong to raised close to $400 for women in Mali, West Africa.
I look forward to printing this to trade with others. Currently because of my 'dyslexic ways' with booklets, pagination and…Continue

I would like to print a physical zine one day, but I just can't figure out how. I got the text part figured out, Microsoft word, but how do I made the cover of the zine? How do I print out the cover without having white borders around it? I can't do it with Adobe Indesign, especially since it's temporary and I use Scribus to make the e-zines. And that DPI crap, how do I make the pictures have a 300 DPI without shrinking? It's so confusing and I feel like a blockhead. Someone recommended…Continue

Hello, I'm trying to raise money to get my new zine off the ground. Nothing extravagant, just $200 to cover website upgrades and in-kind print copies of the 1st issue of the zine to contributors. If you have anything to spare it would be very much appreciated. Let me know that you've donated and I will…Continue
