a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hi hi, I made a comic/graphic novella/zine last year about depression. It took a really long time to work on due to fatigue etc. But I eventaully managed to get it out. I'm now trying to motivate myself to do something else! It got a really kind review on Broken Frontier.
I am jealous of zinesters who can put out zines on a regular basis. I publish Manifesto – a compzine -- but it takes me more than a year to put an issue together. Then I look at zinesters on here like Fishspit and Ken (of the Ken Chronicles) and I wonder, “dang, how do they do it?” I could never get that many issues out or that often.
For years, I have kept a journal where I write or draw anything that interests me (more…Continue

The first issue of my new zine, Minor Leagues is available now
Contains 100 pages of comics, drawings, stories and writing about how days go by, a video rental shop, walking, travelling in Mississippi, a snowball fight from 1995 and more. Thinking a lot about how things and people come and go.
It picks up where my last series SMOO left off, detailing things that…Continue

Today there was an article in the seatle times newspaper that said, feminist punk rock is taking off! Taking over the world! Greatest thing since the Oscar Meyer Wiener dog truck! (God I miss that wiener truck . . . driver would give you a free Oscar Meyer wiener dog ring!)
Jesus you women are so far behind…Continue

Finished a new zine. I'm donating one of my ukes to my younger brother for his birthday this month. It's part of his present. I think I am going to make a modified version of this zine and give that to him as well. He is a guitar player, so he can transfer a lot of theory.
Within this zine I explain exactly what got me interested in the ukulele and then I go on to teach seven of the most used chords (depending on who you talk to) and list a couple of songs where you might find…Continue

So, I bought a zine from a lady on Etsy. She said I was the first to read her zines and wrote me a letter of thanks. She included a return address, so I sent her two zines back. I don't know if that is against proper zine etiquette or not? Unsolicited zines?!
I have lived in this village two years now, and I held off signing up to the library - the place that's a safe haven for me wherever I may be and always has been (I think I should write a zine about libraries) but today I signed…Continue

My Tramp photozine came about after I had collected together a collection of black & white photographs of urban and rural landscapes. I am interested in how and what the walker experiences in a variety of landscapes, and so this 48 page photozine was born. I am also interested in the relationship of experimental text/concrete poetry with that of black & white images, which led me to include four texts in this photozine.
Very happy to trade. Contact me…Continue

In my travels across SE Asia I came across an autobiographical zine by Aki Ra, a Cambodian child soldier who devoted his adult life to clearing the landmines he planted in his youth. It is hands down the most compelling zine I have ever read. It details Aki’s experience of the Cambodian civil war, where the Khmer Rouge killed 25 percent of the Cambodian population, leaving Aki an orphan. He was drafted into the Khmer Rouge at age ten and forced to plant landmines. At age 12 Aki was…Continue
