THE WORLDS A MESS,IT'S IN MY KISS

So I've been a bad girl on this site. Seriously I haven't been on here since early October and that is just sad.

To the many people who were waiting friend requests and pen pal-dom and trades, well fear not, I am working through them all!  And what of the zine HOLES?

Simply put the usual Zine fair of IN PROGRESS. Nearly completed just gotta get the rest of the submissions in the issue to be complete and few more layouts.

Having my printer break wasn't exactly helpful…

New Zine! First timer.

Dragon Style #1 is my take on what dragons would think about style and fashion if the marvellous beasts were bothered by such things.

The zine contains 8 A5 pages with original sketches, a little metallic colour for the dragon readers out there, and a couple of "advertisements" if Dragons advertised their wares or DIY scale bling.

Dragon Style can be purchased through my Etsy.com store here - …

Here it is: my first zine project

"FAKING OUT - a zine about orgasms and (not) keeping them real" is looking for submissions!



Fake orgasms can be a tool, especially for women, to get out of situations they start to feel uncomfortable in. But what else can they be? How do YOU feel about the possibility of faking orgasms? What are your experiences with it? Have you ever faked orgasms yourself? Why? How long did it take you to find out your partner was faking it all this time?



Tell your stories of up to 500… Continue

Format Your Zine Using MS-Word

Making a mock zine using MS-Word

Visit my new review blog at: http://thezineiac.wordpress.com

Become a review writer with me and help me launch this blog site...



You can use MS-Word for making a zine, or just for formatting a mock print to help you move closer to the all important final print. It’s a challenge using MS-Word compared to using a desktop publisher such as Quark’s Xpress, Adobe’s InDesign, or…

Scream Factory Horror Zine: Info Wanted

I ordered a Scream Factory ages ago (or  maybe got it gratis, for review), the 1995/96 issue.  At first I wasn't impressed when I read it, but it sort of grew on me, and I now think it was pretty exceptional.

I'd like to get and/or at least borrow the whole collection, but I don't want it bad enough to pay the $15 a copy it's going for on eBay.

Does anybody on WMZ have the whole collection?  Does anybody know if a zine library does?  Would anybody be willing to do a trade. …

Working on the 5th edition of Stolen Sharpie Revolution and I need your photos!

 With 21,000 copies of the book in print through 4 editions, Stolen Sharpie Revolution has been the go-to resource for zines and zine culture since 2002. However, Stolen Sharpie Revolution is currently out of print. I’m about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a 5th edition and I need your help! I’d like to make a Kickstarter promo video with photos of Stolen Sharpie Revolution, including your photos! Show me photos of SSR on your bookshelf, in a shop window, on a table at a zine fest. Show me SSR with with you cats, dogs, or hedgehogs! I’d love to see a copy in the middle of you floor scattered with zine making scraps, tucked out of your backpack, or being read in public. All submissions that are included in the video will receive a free copy of the book when it is printed. All submissions must be received by 2 February 2014 Submissions should be sent to: StolenSharpieRevolution@live.com STOLENSHARPIEREVOLUTION.ORG Did you know that the zine resource listings that have always appeared in the back of Stolen Sharpie Revolution are now collected and updated on the StolenSharpieRevolution.org website? The resources were always the most difficult part of upkeep and a website makes this so much easier. Check it out for zine distros, stores that sell zines, a calendar of zine events and more!  As always SSR is only as good as the information I have. If you see that I’m missing something, a ne zine event, a shop in your town that sells zines, a zine distro that hasn’t been included, please send a message through the contact form on the site and I’ll get it added. Please reblog and spread the word! In zines we trust, Alex Wrekk *Multiple copies received from a single person will result on only one free book. Owner of submitted photo reserves all rights to submitted images but may be asked for it to be included in promotional materials.

Autistic zine call for submissions

Hey there! This is a call for submissions for a compilation zine about being autistic that will be made totally by autistic people. My plan is for this zine to be available online and on paper. Allistic (non-autistic) people are welcome and encouraged to read and share this zine when it’s finished (and share this call for submissions), but are not currently welcome to submit to this zine – this one’s just for us.

Any autistic person who wants to submit to this zine (or…

2nd year Quizzical

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

There was one in Samuel Johnson's circle who could mimic the Doctor just perfectly. His catch phrase, that so impressed Johnson's biographer Boswell, went like this, "Davy has some convivial pleasantry about him; but 'tis a futile fellow." Name the mimic.

IS: David Garrick (I even gave you the answer in the question!) Boswell adds this, "He (Garrick) was always jealous that Johnson spoke lightly of him.

I had… Continue

Profile

The site has my profile hidden. I dunno why. It's not like I've said anything that is a secret.

But, I'll repost it here. If anybody wants to say "hi" or something, that's cool.

I had not really set out to create a zine. It…

looking for free zines

Hey . My name is Michelle. I recently found out about y'all and I'm super excited about that!

I work at Railroad Street Youth Project in Great Barrington , MA. I am trying to start up a zine lending library there for constituents to check out. I'm wondering if anyone will donate some zines to help start it up. If not,  do you know of any good resources that I can contact to get a bunch of different free zines? I'm open to any other suggestions you might have as well. Thank…
