a place for zinesters - writers and readers
We are collecting donations for the ALA Annual Conference Zine Pavilion in June, in San Francisco. In the past, we've had a backstock of zines from weeded collections/ donations, etc. This year, except with a little stipend from ALA, we are struggling to gather zines for the exhibit and then raffle donation. So essentially, we would like to have zines! Zines collected…

Keepin’ The Ape Drape Alive:
Starting 1980 outta Huntington Beach, CA is The Vandals! One of the most recognizable bands in punk. They are survivors of the 1980’s hard core scene who managed to stay punk and not just give up, even after the exit of founding vocalist Stevo Jensen. Along with being a legendary band, they also appeared in the punk rock favorite…Continue

reckless satire vs. observational humour vs. edgy realism. feedback appreciated. stay ziney.
I wrote a zine based on my work in a psychiatric hospital. It is a three-person play (sort-of). It features one older patient counseling two younger patients as they navigate the mental health world, so to speak. It's a large file with some artwork copied from the web. It's 7.6 MB.
I am not sure where to send it. Any suggestions out there? I would just like other people to read it or use it on their psychiatric…Continue
I'm giving this zine thing a try. So far, I've made two small zines, private editions, one for my husband, and one for myself. I feel exhilarated at the relative ease and success of my two attempts, but I also feel anxious and pressured to make something I'll actually be able/willing to trade with others.
That work is in progress, but it might take a while to distill the thoughts that have been buzzing around in my head for I don't know how long. It's frustrating to have to wait...…Continue

Hello. I haven't gone anywhere, not far at least. I am still writing, writing daily, and publishing nothing more than an occasional social media rant for fear of public negative saturation.. I will divulge more specifically in time, unless you're impatient, then snag my last issues of ILL UNILL LIL'ILL to see how far gone I was. Or rather, I would rather you didn't.
How I'd zined me previously, is not how I want to continue. In current circumstances it wouldn't make good reading…Continue
