International Zine Month post #2

I got a bunch of new zines in the mail today to read!! 

And I have been writing a lot the last few days, for two different zines I'm writing, Bookstore Thief #2 and a so-far-untitled zine that will be interesting tidbits about all the places I've lived.  Or maybe part 1 of all the places, as there are a lot. 

I sent off a piece for a friend's zine that's all about zombies.

Tuesday I ordered a headset with mic from Amazon, as I've decided I want to start doing my own…

IZM so far...

I haven't made it to any zine fests yet, so it's cool to have a kind of virtual zine fest going on for a month. As of 7/1 I've been checking in here several times a day instead of just once a week or so. I also submitted a couple of orders to distros I haven't ordered from before (Desert City Death Distro and Things You Say Distro.) My zines are pretty well organized, so I just dug into my zines for the reads yesterday.

Today I'm apparently doing a 24 hour zine. Because I said so.…

Bravery on a Bus

Our featured item of the month is the brand new zine from Olympia writer Alicia LeDuc. It's called Bravery on a Bus and is about her travels and work in Tanzania. Highly recommended!…

International Zine Month

I'm caught up listening to Alex and Derek's Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Zine podcast and so I'm participating in International Zine Month.  Yesterday I ordered zines from 3 distros I hadn't before, and today I've put together pkgs to send my zines to 4 different distros!

Tension Twosome (kids poems from the Musea Vaults)

Here are two recent kids poems of mine that I’ll collectively call a ‘Tension Twosome’. (For more such kids poetry see my book “Moon Tea”)


She is the woman

shot out of a cannon

that never came down

that never came down

it’s very uncommon

but life goes on and

crowds shift about

crowds shift about

tension smacks the atmosphere

a little bit here a little bit there

‘seems not right that she’d disappear’……

Upcoming Auckland Zinefest Project

On the second of August is Auckland Zinefest. This year will be a bit different to others because it's on a Thursday evening and will wrap up in about three hours, usually they are on Saturday and run for the entire day.

Every time I attend a zine fest I try to have a new magazine to giveaway and I do this by having my deadline just before Zinefest day. This year I am wanting to do something a bit different and have decided to put out a mix CD with zine booklet.

I am really…

International Zine Month

Welcome to Day One of International Zine Month! Though, I suppose, if you're a zinester on Kiritimati, or Christmas Island, it's already Day Two. Wow. So, like, if I called someone there, I'd be talking to a person who actually lives in the future. Huh... that's kind of a trip. Anyway, yay zines! [=
