Telegram Ma'am issue 20

I made this zine as zinester-in-residence at the Anchor Archive / Roberts Street Social Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia in July 2010. This is a very text-heavy zine, about 10,500 words. In Telegram Ma'am #20, I write about:



- being on disability (and dealing with a lot of stupid questions about it)

- thinking about ways of "contributing to society" outside of conventional job settings

- money stuff that I don't really like talking about but had to get it out of my…

I want to stock your zine! Also, still looking to trade zines for descriptions of them!

1. Can I stock your zine maybe?


marching stars distro (www.marchingstars.co.uk) is a 3 year old UK based distro which has hopefully now proved it has staying power in these unstable distro times.

Th Art Pages, Zambia (Africa) - A Labour of Love

It hasn't been easy, what with power cuts, computer viruses and more, but we are finally laying out the first issue of the monthly art zine The Art Pages.

It's such an important venture for artists here in Zambia who are so talented but little known. Now is their chance to share their talents, as they are the writers and producers of the zine. I have been helping them with promotion and can honestly say I am proud to be part of this…

Notes From The Underground (Excerpts)

"Zines have always been more than just words or images on paper: they are the embodiment of an ethic of creativity that argues that anyone can be a creator. Professional newspapers, slick magazines, and academic journals, art galleries and television shows, regardless of their content, have a uniform message to the reader or viewer: you can't do this, you are not skilled enough , you do not have the…

I don't read zines anymore

So I'm selling mine off.



Cometbus, Dishwasher, Murder Can Be Fun, Doris, and a lot more. A whole lot of minicomics, too. I have hundreds of zines & comix, so I'm adding new stuff every day. Everything starts at 99 cents or less.



Also - I will throw in a free zine or comic with every order. Take a look. Maybe you'll find something you like.…

Greetings! and call for entries!

To introduce myself, I've always been a huge fan of zines, starting back in the 80's when I would mail order them. In the early 2000s I created a one-shot zine called Decease: Exploring the Culture of Death. It came out of an interest in the culture surrounding death and dying, similar territory to what he writer Mary Roach explored in Stiff.



Currently, I'm starting my next zine (one-shot, series? who knows!) about Collecting - what do you collect and why? Short submissions desired -… Continue

Volunteer Call - 10th Annual Portland Zine Symposium!

Hey PZS friends!



As you probably know, the 10th Annual Portland Zine Symposium is fast approaching (it's August 28th and 29th) and the PZS organizers are looking for a few good zinesters for help!



We have a variety of duties we'll be needing assistance with the upcoming weeks; some are as simple as grabbing a stack of posters from the IPRC and hanging them up at your favorite, people populated places, while other are more involved, like helping run the info table a…

new zine: uncomfortable

Uncomfortable is a brief perzine that consists of five lineated memories: a little kid at an airport, a little kid at an aquarium, a relationship that ended, a job turned down, and a panicked childhood moment. It's available free in person and a stamp through the mail. You can contact me here or at robotmad (gmail).…

I just read one of the best perzines I have read in a long time

It's Sub Rosa 1 by Taryn Hipp. Taryn has done zines for a long time and I think I read her old one Girl Swirl, but I hadn't read her newer one. Sub Rosa 1 is still pretty old. She is currently working on Sub Rosa 6.



Anyway, here is why this zine was so good. You know how when you and a friend are talking about real life stuff and it gets very deep and you or they end up spewing out a whole bunch of fears and confessions… Continue

Mustache Monthly August Issue On Sale Now!

Hello all,


One day, brainstorming about ways to get people to read my writing, I thought of something. What if I could publish my work serially. A serial novel, like they used to do in newspapers and magazines. Of course, being a teenager, not a well known author, and not having any friends in the publishing industry, I was put back a bit. Then it hit me (pardon the cliche). I could do the same thing with a zine and have much more fun! Thus, Mustache Monthly was born. I…
