Some Newness

It's been a while since we've added any new zines, so many of us working on zines and never finishing them, but yesterday the new issue of Sugar and Heartstrings came out! We also restocked a couple, too. I've been out on tour for the last month, so I just started back to work today on some zines I was working on before I left. I included the rest of this month's update below for… Continue

TELEGRAM MA'AM 18 / YOUR PRETTY FACE IS GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL 9

Tukru and I made a split zine across the ocean!



Telegram Ma'am #18 is a love letter to my bike, a beautiful vintage cruiser. There are notes on anxiety and depression as well, being a weird girl in a small town, going to zine gatherings, and adventures with my local friends. I write about learning how to ride my bike again after the snow melted, late-night bike rides, hanging out at the library, and challenging myself to communicate more assertively.



Your Pretty Face Is… Continue

Brainscan 24 and 25!

BRAINSCAN 25-This zine has been five start and stop years in the making. I finally finished it in October of 2009 at the Anchor Archive zine residency in Halifax, Nova Scotia.



Brainscan 25 Chronicles my Saturn return as a love story, an ending, and a new beginning with someone from my past. The Saturn Return is the time between ages 27 and 30 when the planet Saturn is in the same place it was at your birth. It is usually seen as a harbinger… Continue

Call for Entries: COMING CLEAN

Call for Entries: COMING CLEAN (will be the theme of SYNDICATE PRODUCT #15)



Looking for stories AND comics.



After zines about the laundry (Laundry Basket), grocery shopping (12 Items or Less), and cooking (Potluck), this was inevitable. The next issue of SYNDICATE PRODUCT is all about cleaning... house cleaning, washing the car, even picking up the yard debris. (However, it's NOT about laundry, as that's already been done. It's also not about packratting, as that's also… Continue

Lead-in to a planned christmas zine

9.11.09

November's threefold ceremonies of death have declared our ritual goodbyes to summer. Winter is arriving and soon it will be time to celebrate it. Town is getting busier at night - and bloody scary. Each small local gig feels snug and warm, a cave of drink and music in which, in little clusters of friendly strangers, we can shut out the cold black sky. Some of us will play guitar and share some songs. Others will drink, in honour of king winter.



On the no.12 bus, I see… Continue

Working on a project...Need your help!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to my zine documentary so far! The responses have been fabulous, and I can't wait to put together the first issue to send out to everyone. Here's the deal. I have some funding to put a zine together about why zines are important to folks, about our creative process making them, and the connections we make through making and sharing them. My plan is to do a series of issues over the next year and once I have a good number of issues, to bind them somehow as a… Continue

"In search of... Luke Sinclair" from "Going Postal!" #2

"In search of… Luke Sinclair" from "Going Postal!" #2



I always see advertisements for zine distros in review zines, but I´ve never contacted any of them to see if they would be interested in carrying one of my zines. I prefer to know my readers one-on-one. That is, if somebody sees a review of my little publication they have to grab a pen & a sheet of paper, then sit down & write to me personally. I like that. I´m not all that interested in putting massive quantities… Continue
