Happy International Zine Month!

I love the list of activities for IZM that Alex and crew some up with, but I am always so busy making a zine for the PZS that I don't get to do much of the activities.

Today (day 3- Zine Appreciation Day) I bought some zines from Stranger Danger Distro.

Day 1 was to list ten things you like about zines.  Here is my list:

  1. You don't need a grant, a publisher or permission to make a…

IZM2015 day 3: Zine Distro Appreciation Day!

So today’s challenge for international zine month is to support zine distros by ordering some zines! Its always great to support things like distros, they do a lot of work helping zinesters get their zines out into the wild open world, but this is coming from someone who has never ordered from a zine distro! 

This is mainly down…

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

Unfortunately, I have a very, very, small collection of zines - don’t get me wrong there’s plenty of zines I would love to have! Such as Disa Wallander’s series Slowly Dying but the zine I have re-read today was a zine that was sent to me by…

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.

International Zine Month 2015!

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!
