I love getting mail!

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

Carrots and Condoms: A Review by Xerography Debt

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

Call for Zine Exhibition

Hi,



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

Call for Writing about Fat Issues in Zines - new and old!

Hello,

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.

Thanks!

One-Shots

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

ZINES! (re)make history!!!! Exhibit!!!



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

http://feministreview.blogspot.com/2007/06/you-live-for-fight-when-thats-all-that.html



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

Q&A with Matt W. Moore {printed in Art Bureau 17}

Matt, you've been very busy. In the last year or so, you've moved from Portland, Maine to work for Burton Snowboards in Vermont, and now I hear you opened your own design firm in Boston. Can you give us a brief re-cap of what led you away from Portland and made it possible for you to start a design business in Boston?

Well, I finished school in Portland in 2005 and worked at…
