This idea came up at the post-fest meeting for the Chicago Zine Fest, let's have a Chicago Zinester Picnic this Saturday (the 14th)! Bring a dish to share (along with an ingredient list, so those of us with dietary restrictions can know whether we can enjoy your food), and zines to trade. You might also want to bring a blanket, or any items that make picnics fun, like frisbees or balls or hoola-hoops?

I'm proud to announce that Mustache Monthly now has a screen printed cover! Whee! I'm still getting the hang of it, so it looks a bit messy, but it's going to be awesome! The new cover takes off in the September issue, which will be coming out soon.

One dilemma over; another 16 present themselves!! but first, my SUCCESSFUL ruling out has led me to a decision, thanks to much good advice from fellow zinesters and a friendly shove from the hubby - i've concluded that before i can write in the now, i feel a necessary urge to push through a previous incomplete writing excerpts of sorts that was 6 or so yrs in the making.. it is for lack of better description 'my book'. i wrote in it when i felt like something must be said but the words escaped… Continue

I was published in the Summer 2010 Issue of Broken Pencil: The Magazine of Zine Culture and the Independent Arts
! Broken Pencil is based in Toronto, Canada. I met the editor, Lindsay, at the Buffalo Small Press Book Fair in March of this year. She asked me to write something for the "Zine Philosophy" section of the mag - why I make zines, my inspiration, and "philosophy" about them. I did mine zine-style -… Continue

It's been a busy few months since I was here last. I finished the second vol. of Phaugey Dox and they have since become part of a larger book.
A grand zine. I'm working on two at the moment. They have offered obsticals of how to put them together which I have solved by wrapping the folded edges to make the binding..
Evolution at work. I'm working on some papers which could be turned into individual zines at some point, but who's to say.
I'm still enjoying the process.

this summer has been hectic, as it usually is since my brain goes haywire every summer. i don't want to sleep or stop doing anything, yet i never feel like i'm doing enough. this is something that has been plaguing me for a few years now, but summer makes it more obvious. i have a million projects on my mind and in the works. sometimes i feel like i am just spread to thin to finish any of these projects. my to-do list just keeps getting longer and as it does, i fall into procrastination mode.… Continue

No matter what you call them: fests, symposiums, conventions, expos, etc…, they are a great way to connect with other zinesters, learn something new at a workshop, trade zines, and so much more. There are a lot of zine (and zine friendly) fests coming in the next few months.… Continue

I have been toying with the idea of creating a blog that would be a central space for people to share submission calls for compilation zines.
The person requesting the submissions would email me their description and instructions including a deadline.
I will also encourage follow ups - being that the person would email me when the zine is completed and let me know how people could obtain the zine.
I would post all of the information on the… Continue

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Here's a fashion question. How much water will a 10-gallon hat hold? (Oh and don't even THINK of answering with the obvious!)
The average Stetson holds about 3 quarts according to Mental Floss magazine. The earliest version of the hat was from the Mexican cowboys, who liked to decorate their hats with colorful braids called 'galons'. That's where the… Continue
