Several of my zines were reviewed in Zine World #28. I'm including those reviews in this blog post.
Before I get to the reviews, I want to encourage everyone to read Zine World. It's a great resource for anyone who has even the slightest interest in zines. It's full of letters, articles, ads, a chart of U.S. postal rates, and lots of reviews. A single issue costs $4 postpaid, US; $5… Continue

Hey, does anyone make/know of any good gardening zines? I've tried to carry some in the past and nobody has ever come through.

So, i guess I should use this blog thing, because I have exciting news.
Well... exciting for me.
Last week, I officially finished my first real zine, a perzine called The Universe and You: An Owner's Manual.
Everything is cut, collated, folded, stapled, covers painted... it feels so good. Handed out the first few copies already. Plan on handing more out this weekend at the NJ Zine Fest, trades and whatnot!
Not to mention a little tiny minizine on facial hair… Continue

I added two new zines to the catalog today:
- A Million Birthdays #9
This is another great, text-heavy zine by K, broken up into vignettes. K writes: “I have been writing down my stories – critical or not – for over seven years now and I don't really know why. It's like there's something that lives inside of me and tells me, over and over, if you are going to keep living, you have to keep writing. And so, whether or not anyone else is…

Above are my inspirations.
I am inspired by the old zines, where nothing is exactly the same and the contents are a surprise. So I was thinking of collaborating with a few zinesters here on wmz to create 10-20 unique lit and art packs that have different pieces, works, lit and other ephemera inside.
Quarter-sized and/or mini zines are welcome, so are little flyers, ephemera, novelty items, poetry, photogtaphs,… Continue

Some Junk Drawer zines can now be found in New York City.
All are for sale at Bluestockings bookstore. They have a fine selection of books and zines, and a few Chicago zines. Junk Drawer issue #1 is in the zine library collection at ABC No Rio.
Both these places are on the Lower East Side, and are worth checking out. They are great supporters of independent writing and zines.…
