a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Dear Anonymous 3 is on its way and I'm once again looking for letters!
Lessons learned from DA1:
*250 words or less is good (for one page)
*500 words or less is good (for two pages)
So, basically, you're right in the 1 - 500 words range, but shorter is better. BUT, this zine is about expression, and I don't want to force anyone to clamp down on their passion just for me. I'm flexible. :)
As for content, these letters can be confessionals,…Continue

If you read the juvenile, uninformed sophomoric writing in most feminist zines, you'd think being white and male in America is a cakewalk- that even if your homeless and starving, have hep c and were raped at age 5 in a drug house, as long as your white and male you can just walk down the street slapping black women in the face for fun. Like you can just write "Not a Person of Color" on a slip of paper at a job interview and you'll be president of Exxon tomorrow. It's like it's so hard to…Continue

When you look at Political Correctness and new school Radical Feminism as a whole, in the zine community and the world at large, it really begs the question ;What has really been accomplished by all the supposed changing of attitudes and spouting of political/social writings and discussions, forced and voluntary, related to these theories and their practice thereof ?There is always a pretty big amount of talk in the zine community about feminism, racism, and all these other problems. But it…Continue

Vintage Postal Stamp ( Poem )
Turn of the century Vintage Stamps
Traceable history make value enhance
Prices get higher as the years go by
Dream of finding one valued so high
Extremely fine with the perfect gum
Designer flaws bring high premium
Famous from error illustration
Collection of art inspiration
We are crazy for detailed graphics
Finding rare depends on the markets
Unused are the old collectibles
Their worth can…

Harness Racing ( Poem )
Horses pull a two wheeled cart
If it breaks you will depart
Place a bet before it starts
Good wager wins if played smart
Riders ready at the gate
Fans no longer have to wait
Athlete sport with high speed
Is a skill you surely need
At times a horse can fall down
Sad to see that come around
Last turn has crowd in a roar
We wait to hear close end score
If your looking to explore

Aside from zine production, I am experimenting with other forms of art, including snail mail art.
I produced stationary designs and envelopes, but I am now trying to craft postcards.
I was wondering if anyone reading this has any tips and suggestions on how to make postcards. Have you made them before? Are you still making them now? Is there a standard size for postcards? What should appear on the back?
Any help would be appreciated.

James Nixon's poetry taps into the relationship between textual and visual art by supplying a narrative, a structure through which we can begin to understand the painting as well as to view it. Each featured poem draws on the creative potential available when drawing together the latent symbols, contexts and ideas which emerge from the visual.
