functionally ill 10

I have a new mental health zine out, functionally ill 10.  It's about using the word crazy, what mad love means to me, how my crazy manifests, and how I feel about my best friend Arrow's self-harm.  Please contact me if you're interested in trading.

I want to trade zines for descriptions of them! (UK only please)

Basically I suck at writing zine descriptions for the distro and a couple of years ago I came up with the idea of trading zines for descriptions of them. It's been working really well,

I send you 4 or 5 zines for free (you get to keep them). You send me a description of the zines so I can use them on the distro website. You'll get full credit for the description and I can link to your blog or website. Sound like a good deal? Email me at distro@marchingstars.co.uk

If you've… Continue

The Weekly Troll's Zine Reading 1 [Audio Recording]!

This week’s edition of The Troll will be a little different. Last week, we formally introduced ourselves to Albuquerque’s zine scene so everyone there knows what we’re all about. If you ever wondered when it was okay to laugh during the articles, then now you’ll no. No canned laughs here– it’s 100 percent live, raw and in stereo.  Although there’s some  articles from the previous issues, we did release two articles that night: Libertarianism in the U.K., and Conquering…

Help L.A Zine Fest Become a Reality in 2012!


  I am writing from a group of ladies who are organizing a Los Angeles Zine Fest in early 2012. We want to have a FREE event with 60-70 vendors from all over the country (and world even!) participate to celebrate zines in a way that Los Angeles hasn't embraced, on a large scale, in quite a while. We have entered a contest that will fund the idea with the most votes with a $2,500 prize and we need your help! 

If you'd like to support zine culture and community by helping us…

New Zine shop in Nottingham looking for submissions!

Hello folks,

I've just opened up a shop in a caravan in an arts centre in Nottingham called Caribou, and I would love to sell many many zines! I'm just starting to get stocked up and I've had a few people sending me their zines, so If you would like your zine to be featured inside Nottingham's first zine shop then I would love to hear from you. I'm interested in all subjects, and it would be on a sale or return policy.

If you…

My Latest Internet Frustration

Somebody by the name of Gene Hawkridge sent me an invitation to join LinkedIn, which he himself is on.  At first, I thought it may have been some kind of spam, so I hit the reply button and politely told him I didn't remember ever "meeting" him.  Later, the name began sounding more familiar, and after an Inbox search, I did find he was a WA LP member and had contacted me in a mass e-mail a while back.  So, taking it as a possibly friendly personal gesture, I decided I'd go ahead and accepted…

(slightly belated) Happy Birthday Joe and a rediscovered tribute

+ Joe/Clash related issue 1 memories

(it's gone midnight - now 1:14 am, so no longer the 21st here in Britain. Keeping odd hours & getting distracted by urban75 + time to refind, edit, upload and write all this doesn't help getting tributes out there for the right day)…

My newest zines + awesomeness.

I have two weeks off instead of just the one week I normally get, so I've been very busy with art stuff and making zines.


I just got done with Impossibles #3, a perzine about growing up in a strict fundamentalist community. Over this first week of break, I started getting the cover and splashpages ready for Impossibles #4. It is going to be about my experiences being a black woman in America and everything that goes along with that. I'm really excited about this one because…

Callout for Contributions to JUGGLING THE RAINBOW # 2 – non-monogamous relationships

Are you living or exploring or thinking about open non-monogamous relationships? Did you always want to write your story down to be shared with others in the DIY zine field (or beyond)?

FUNDED! The Meta-Comics Issue is FUNDED!

Wow, the META-COMICS issue is funded as of 8:55pm tonight. I'm completely overwhelmed by the generosity of all of the backers, and very glad I decided to take a chance and use Kickstarter to fund the project.

A few things I've learned so far:

1. Have a modest goal and provide a budget in your project description to show where the money will go.

2. Have reasonable reward levels. For this, $1 got a "thank you" in the zine, $5 a PDF of the issue, and $10 a dead tree copy of…

Kickstarter almost there! Only $65 left to go!

Wow! It can really work for small projects!


There's only $65 left to go to get the Meta-Comics Issue fully funded on Kickstarter! $1 gets you a "thank you" in the zine, $5 a PDF of the issue, and $10 the dead tree version. If you pledge more, the rewards increase!
