a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I got some stuff done yesterday mostly related to snail mail. I wrote a letter to my penpal, made a package of zines for trade and packed another box of zines to be sent to Boston for the zine fest.
So not much zine production but I got some stuff done anyway. That's besides the fact that I got my flight tickets to Boston!!!!! Haha!
Anyway, today, Day 27, I'm having a friend over for an art night, so I hope to get a move on with my zine.
More on that later on :-)

I haven't found one yet. I mean, I know how to make a perzine, cut and paste, a fanzine, a compilation zine, a zine designed by hand and on computer, a mini zine complete with the folds and whatnot, a post-its zine, a photobook...
About a week ago, I had the idea of making a "silent" zine, that is a zine that is made up of photos, drawings, collages and comics, and that has almost no words at all.
I think this is the zine "skill" I'm gonna teach myself. I don't know if it's…Continue

I had to make a one page zine on July 23, which I assume is a mini zine. so I decided to take that opportunity to make my own "mini zine" which I actually call a post-its zine because it's made out of a small stack of post-it notes. This zine is my End of Words zine about nonsense and it's the third issue of it, some of which is written in aweful broken German. I was planning on doing it on the 23, but that day was spent on a longass bus ride from Jerusalem to Be'er Sheva…Continue

I made my first legit fanzine. It's about I Love Lucy. You probably think you know enough about I Love Lucy, but I bet you don't. It's a great show and a great story.
I only have a few left after the zine symposium. Get it while ya can.
You can find the zine in my Etsy shop.…Continue

I’m here with the latest from Sweet Candy Distro & Press, and what an amazing summer it’s been so far.
Can you believe it?! - On June 10th, Sweet Candy turned 11! I…Continue

sorry zine issue 3 is taking a while. It's longer than normal and I am mainly working on it when I feel inspired. The last article is challenging and sometimes I feel it is not very cohesive and/or I'm grabbing at straws. It will eventually be out. It's not too far from being done. I am just trying to get it exactly the way I want it, along with providing accurate research and documentation.

Since I skipped "visiting your local zine library" day (since there are none in Jerusalem) and found myself with a free day, I decided that I should work on the split zine I'm doing with my Boston friend.
But then, this morning, after reading a piece I wrote a while back about writing and composing songs, I felt a bout of inspiration and decided to pick up my guitar and play for the first time since I broke my elbow (two years ago)! I loved it so much and realized just how much I've…Continue

I went to the post office today and mailed out a bunch of awesome stuff to awesome people. I was also planning on mailing out some of my zines to the Barnard Zine Library in honor of today's activity, but didn't do it at the end and here's why:
Last night, I chatted with Jenna Freedman who runs said library and asked her if she would be interested in cataloging some of my recent zines. When I told her I can send it to her, she said that I can also give it to her in person during the…Continue

As author of Fanzines: The DIY Revolution, Teal Triggs has been on the Desert Isolation Discs wish list for some time. Her study of publishing's finest form is an excellent examination of their loudmouth birth (titles includes Crap…Continue

I don't really know who to give the zine to, so I posted a status on my Purple Myrtle Squeegy page saying that the first person to comment on the post will be getting a free zine. No one has commented yet (that's a hint hint for you, reader!)
If by tomorrow, there are still no takers, I'll try the same post on my Facebook profile, which people see more often anyway.
Meanwhile, tonight I'll be writing a few letters and preparing a…Continue

Today, I ordered a zine from Marching Stars Distro which is actually closing down.
I remember submitting some earlier issues of Fallopian Falafel to this distro in the past but I don't ever recall actually buying any other zines from there. So I decided to go for it today.
It seems cool. I hope the zines I ordered are just as good as the ones I got last week from Vampire Sushi Distro.
As a side note, I set this upcoming Tuesday as my post office day. So all the packages…Continue

I'm still all groggy and "jet-lagged" from the 24-Hour Zine Thing. This explains why I'm doing this activity now and not yesterday when I was supposed to be doing it.
I recently traded zines with Beth a.k.a Squimoo. She sent me a copy of her first zine/comics called The Deadbeats.
As I already told her in a message I wrote to her the other day, when I got the zine, I was just going to flip through it a bit and read it later, as I was in the office and didn't really have much…Continue
While working on FAH #2 and FAH #3 simultaneously something entirely different emerged. So, I've decided to skip FAH as zine title, and the whole work flow from FAH altogether. Full Size Render is a new title and it feels good to continue. It's fully analogue made, partly handwritten and written with a typewriter, it has photos too, oddly enough taken with a digital Canon EOS 350D. Full Size Render will be out and about at the end of next week.

I cleared out the activities for these two days so that I can devote all my time to work on my 24-Hour Zine. I'm so excited for it. And after that, I'll probably need some time to sleep.
So in that case, I'm leaving "review a zine online" and "ordering from a different distro than normal" for next week. Anyway, I just received some new zines today, so once I'm done with the 24HZT and with subsequent sleep, I'll read them and review them. There's no doubt in my mind that they'll be…Continue
