So, I'm new here...

I'm a writer living in New York. That sets me apart not at all, really. So I digress...



In 2005, I co-founded Aforementioned Productions and apt, an online literary journal. We produced my evening of theatre--entitled Cleavage--and published the script the following year.



In 2007, we published my debut novel, A Girl Named Charlie Lester. It went… Continue

Comics by Kids

Hi. I just wanted to let everyone know that I just started a new network for kids that make comics. It is for anyone who is under 18 and makes (or wants to make their own comics). I'm in 7th grade and I've been publishing for a year and a half. You can join Comics by Kids at http://comicsbykids.ning.com/

Friend me at myspace at myspace.com/bandjpublishing


Hope to see you there.

its been so long

it took me about a month after completing motor city kitty #11 to finally go make copies of it. things have just been so busy. i don't know why i get so ambitious about zines when i know i'm not always gonna have the time to devote to them (probably because zines are true love.)



i know i owe some people trades, or zines for subscribers. here's the list of people i know i owe zines to. if you're not on it but believe you should be, let me know. sometimes i lose track of envelopes and… Continue

Transmission

Just completed my first zine 'transmission'. It doesn't really have a theme as the zine in itself is an experiment. I threw in some of my collage and a cartoon in between a poem and a story.



Christmas actually encouraged me to complete it. My friend has no idea what zines are. I tried to explain and directed her to this site, but I think she needs to see an actual zine. So I went in search of some in Hamilton.

Only found one about sexual abuse and violent relationships, Hamilton… Continue

Issue One is finished!

Lady With a Buzzsaw (I know it's supposed to be two words, but I like them better together) is finally printed and ready to go! I am very excited! It may not be the best zine in the world, but I still feel accomplished. 20 pages. I am still getting used to all of this zine stuff, so some of the black and white photos came out a bit harsh. Oh well!



Stuff on:



-My odd encounters with two really fucking weird guys in one day

-A frightening dream I had

-My trip to… Continue

Review for Book Art

From an Etsy buyer:



by Crowbelle



Interesting work. I lean towards the second issue: I like the smaller

size and the greater contrast of dark and light in the pictures - I think the greater contrast allows the viewer/reader more access to the book.

Lets see, one of my favorite

pictures is in the first book - the one where you wrote: When dealing with nature....

very strong image. I like Zines that have strength of vision - ones that reach

some truth… Continue

Candy or Medicine began as a place where Josh Blair published some random

comics of his, but since this first issue it has evolved into so much more. Instead of

reprinting this issue, Josh has decided to… Continue

FreezerBurn Eleven out soon!

For those who are familiar (and the myriad of those who are not), the eleventh issue of the art-damaged midwestern 'zine FreezerBurn shall be out before X-Mas.

Forget blogging.

Forget websites.

Forget online networking.

This issue shall not appear in any form in the HTML-realm; the only way to experience its caustic xeroxed strangeness is to contact its creator firectly.

Zine Library Donations~

A few months ago I posted that I was closing down my zine library and that I was selling the zines from my collection (for postage only!) to other zine libraries. Well every flat rate envelope and box that I packed was purchased! Last weekl my wonderful friend from Philly sent me three boxes slammed full of zines from the physical library location that I ran there two years ago so I am back to square one with lots of zines for any zine libraries that may be interested.

1st *review* of ZINECORE RADIO! xo

This is a neat idea for a podcast. Hannah Neurotica brings you a regular round up of interviews with zinesters, guest readings from zines and news and announcements from the worldwide zine community. This whole podcast has got the feel of a zine – slick it ain’t, but that’s a big part of its charm. Hannah’s interview style is chatty and natural and because of this rather than despite it, she gets some really interesting answers from interviewees. And this is no ego trip; there’s a real… Continue
