Wow, first blog.
Unfortunately I've become used to writing and reading incredibly diluted life-stories on myspace profiles; so writing a blog should give me the kick up the backside I truely deserve.
So let's not start with the basics.
- I was born on Christmas day, 1993, during the Queens speech. My mother still managed to eat two chrismas dinners that day.
- I have a passion for history, art, music and history of art and music. Currently I have a developing fixation on… Continue

CHEAP FUNDRAISER PRINT SALE/CUSTOM ILLUSTRATIONS
My name is Ramsey and I make a zine called list filled with illustrations! If you like my zine, it's a good chance you like it because of the drawings, so I figured it was relevant to post about my illustration sale on here.
My cat, Stella, became very ill over the holiday and the only way to save her was for her to get surgery. Obviously, surgery of any kind, even for an animal, is very expensive. Since she was a young cat,… Continue

Not really sure if anyone bothers to read my blog posts on here, but I figured that since I made a coupon for my past customers to use I might as well spread it around for anyone else who wanted to buy up some zines with a 20% discount. Through 1.20.09, you will receive 20% off the total of your zine order if you enter the code "holiday0809" when you check out. Trust me, it works! It's great! And I've got a lot of great new stuff on the site right now, so stop on by and check it… Continue

I came back to school to find a huge pile of mail outside my door, including zines from Susy Pow, Heather, and Emma Stronach! I just opened them and am super-excited to get to read 'em all. One of my favorite things about this whole zine trading business is getting real mail almost every day. :)
So if anyone wants to trade, I've got a new zine out; it's called "Weird Things We Hang On Our Christmas Tree" and is exactly as it sounds. My older zines are still available as well... leave… Continue

This is a review of Carrots and Condoms on the Xerography Debt blog, posted by librarian666:
"On a personal note, this zine struck a chord of memory with me: that feeling I had just after college, where the working world was so repugnant, so horrible, it drove me mad with despair.
I didn't discover the desire to farm or to somehow create a Portland, OR where I was; I went down in flames of defeat.
So, to you, Coco, you go girl! Keep the passion alive and change… Continue

I'm organising a zine exhibition for around March with various zinemakers - a collective, if you like - and I wondered whether you had a zine ready or something you'd like to make, which could be included in the exhibition?
There will be pages (or excerpts) from zines blown up to larger sizes and displayed on the wall in whichever creative form the zinemaker wants. For example, simple A3 or A2 sized posters or on canvasses or inside books hung on the wall... The… Continue

I am working on getting together fat zines and zines that included articles about fat issues for a possible anthology. The zine would be a collection of fat zines over the last 10+ years.
I really want to do it and think it could be great, but am having a hard time finding the zines, especially some older ones. If you did one or had something about fat politics published in one in the last 15 years, please contact me asap.

This is a mini zine that I created for the Mini Zine Folks group swap (09). It fits into a standard envelope, is black and white and 16 pages. Because it's shiny an new, I've put it in a foil embossed koi envelope I found at the asian grocery.
The zine features pages from my sketchbook drawn especially for the… Continue

I figure i don't have a steady zine. I do have poetry chapbooks and chap. anthologies. Then i have these one-shots. In comic world (a world i am so comfortable living in). A one-shot according to Wikipedia is:
In the American comic book industry, the term one-shot is used to denote a pilot comic or a stand-alone story created to last as one issue. These single issues are usually labeled with a "#1" despite there being no following issues, and are sometimes subtitled as "specials".… Continue

An Exhibit & Workshop On Underground Publishing
Curated by Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go, this is not just an exhibit, but an active exploration of zine culture and production, including a "Scrap Lounge" in which visitors can create their own zine. Zines are the print media of an "alternative" culture that turns out not to be so alternative after all. Self-published & without censorship, zines are raw culture, not mass media that relies on the… Continue

Fallyrag was lucky enough to get its hands on Eddie Willson's collection of stories in his zine 'you are here' of which 'Punch' is featured in this issue of the creative journal.

I wrote the following review for Zine World #25:
Let’s D.I.Y. #2: This issue of Let’s D.I.Y. is subtitled “Off the Page: taking zine-making to the community” and was produced by Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go. It tells why zine-makers should get involved with community groups and gives info on how to begin and maintain such partnerships. Once the basics are covered, there’s some more in-depth information on how to do it all better. The zine closes with a list of resources as well as questions… Continue

I wrote the first review for the Feminist Review Blog, and it can be found here
The second review was written for issue #25 of Zine World.
This zine is the latest from the woman who brought the world five issues of A Renegade’s Handbook to Love & Sabotage. After her dad’s unexpected death in 2002, she took a break from producing zines because “the words just didn’t come out in a… Continue
