IZM - Day 3: Zine Distro Appreication Day

And to show above-mentioned appreciation, IZM participants must order zines from a zine distro, so I ordered two zines from a UK distro called Vampire Sushi Distro. I ordered a zine made by a penpal/zinester friend of mine from the UK, Cath Elms who writes "Here. In My Head", and a compilation zine written by the owner of said distro.

I'm very excited to get the zines. I haven't ordered from a distro in a while so it will be a nice refreshing change to get something I actually paid…

The Deadbeats! My first zine

The Deadbeats is my first ever zine! Which initially wasn't even going to be a zine when the concept first took life. I ended up stumbling upon the zine community when doing research for the project and fast forward a few months and that's pretty much how I'm here today!



I present to you, The Deadbeats!…

IZM2015 day 2: Reread your favourite zines

IZM Day 2 - Re-read Favorite Zines

Today, I will be reading some of Amber Dearest's zines - Fight Boredom and Culture Slut. They were some of the first zines I ever traded and they are still my favorite. They served as a huge source of inspiration for me for creativity and zine-production, even on days when I felt like I just wanted to crawl into my bedsheets and cease to exist. They will no doubt have the same effect today. I could definitely use some inspiration at the moment.

I might even browse through the Fight…

International Zine Month 2015--Day Two

For Day 2 of IZM: I re-read one of my favorite zines! Written by ponyboy violet, the zine "ANAlog: dispatches on d.i.y. anorexia recovery" was a life-saver to me in so many ways. If you are struggling with any type of ED, I highly recommend getting a hold of this zine. Words of solidarity and resistance are much needed for true recovery to begin.

So I did it in 2013, but didn't do it last year due to trips and medical reasons. But now that medical shit is sorted, and I got married, and I came back from my trip last weekend, I got no excuses and don't need any because I love it!

Hurray for International Zine Month!

Call for Submissions: Whatever Saves #5!

Call for Submissions: Whatever Saves #5

Whatever Saves is my infrequently produced zine, put together whenever the mood or the muse strikes.  In my next issue, I want to highlight the stories and artwork created by people who don't have children, don't want children, maybe want children but can't have them, or other folks with complicated relationships with reproduction and progeny.  Time to flip the narrative on its head and show the world how the other half (more than half, if I'm…

Much to my relief FAH #1 is now finished and printed! FAH (Fixing A Hole) is a perzine with mental health issues and personal development as common theme. In this first issue photographs taken with Lomography cameras, an essay on Lomography as a way to play, an essay about society being in myself first and a number of assorted journal notes, with a focus on music.
