I picked up a zine the other night and it brought to mind an issue I have thought about a lot over the years: overpricing of zines. Now, people do zines for a variety of reasons and that matters to how they price them. What has bothered me over the last few years are the number of people who seem to be treating zines as "art" and themselves as artists rather than people who make zines. As such, they are generally uninterested in others zines, won't do trades, and charge far more than…Continue

I'm in my lower 30s and this decade I'm documenting in words (and sometimes in photos but mostly in words). I didn't intentionally put my 20s into photography (and my teens into visual art) but that's just kind of the way it turned out. This is the first time I'm intentionally writing personal stories towards future zine-making. Most of my zines are born from a concrete idea: to talk about something specifically, and then printed quickly.
Issue 0 is free, quarter-sized, and 64 pages…Continue

I've started to work on Fixing A Hole issue 2 fully anew because I want it to be analogue. So instead of rattling away on my Alphasmart Neo2 I first write the content in a Moleskine notebook and eventually I type everything out on my East German Erika typewriter. Because analogue feels more honest in a way. I'll post some new pictures this month.

I got the idea to make one of these zines from We Make Zine’s own Sophie Sherwood. I had known about the 8-page mini zine format for a while, but like most folks, I thought they worked best if you drew directly to the paper master and xeroxed from there.They are fast, easy and cheap. Just the thing if you want to make a zine that is political or topical that needs a quick turn around.
I had never considered…Continue

Issue 13 of Purple Myrtle Squeegy is complete!
I had an amazing time in Salem and Boston and I though what better way to commemorate my first zine fest experience than to make a zine about it?
My fellow split-zinester, Nyxia Grey (you may remember her from such split zines about Stephen King and a special about journal entries) invited me to glorious MA to visit Salem and its October spookiness and table with her at the Boston Zine…Continue
So, i really love the idea of zines. The DIY factor is really empowering especially when you have stories and artwork you want to get out there but the thought of getting published by a big name publisher seems impossible at the moment. And Zine makers trudge alongside other cool underground artists, like wheat-pasters and graffiti artists so the networking and collaborations are endless. Zine making is apart of the art in whatever it was chosen to express.
I'm a comic book zine…Continue

I just wanted to give an introduction about myself. I've been making zines since the late 90's. I came across zine/tape/DIY culture at the record store Benway Bop! in Las Vegas, NV. The zine that made sense to me was called "Snoopy Fanzine." It was a combination of Snoopy fan art, local punk band interviews, nonsense rants, sensical rants and general insanity. One could say it was love at first sight.
I copied the layout and format of this zine to make my first zine where I…Continue
