a place for zinesters - writers and readers
*blows away cobwebs*
its been a while. i have the zine bug again but yes, life is killing my creative spirit. i might be moving to west philly soon, i'd been living in upper darby for a couple of years - yes, i escaped norristown! - my cat and i have been together for 3 years and i still have two jobs.
hopefully when i move again i will have some time to start researching my food zine idea...lots of taste testing has to happen. and maybe just maybe i can…Continue

I got the idea to make one of these zines from We Make Zine’s own Sophie Sherwood. I had known about the 8-page mini zine format for a while, but like most folks, I thought they worked best if you drew directly to the paper master and xeroxed from there.They are fast, easy and cheap. Just the thing if you want to make a zine that is political or topical that needs a quick turn around.
I had never considered…Continue

Issue 13 of Purple Myrtle Squeegy is complete!
I had an amazing time in Salem and Boston and I though what better way to commemorate my first zine fest experience than to make a zine about it?
My fellow split-zinester, Nyxia Grey (you may remember her from such split zines about Stephen King and a special about journal entries) invited me to glorious MA to visit Salem and its October spookiness and table with her at the Boston Zine…Continue
So, i really love the idea of zines. The DIY factor is really empowering especially when you have stories and artwork you want to get out there but the thought of getting published by a big name publisher seems impossible at the moment. And Zine makers trudge alongside other cool underground artists, like wheat-pasters and graffiti artists so the networking and collaborations are endless. Zine making is apart of the art in whatever it was chosen to express.
I'm a comic book zine…Continue

I just wanted to give an introduction about myself. I've been making zines since the late 90's. I came across zine/tape/DIY culture at the record store Benway Bop! in Las Vegas, NV. The zine that made sense to me was called "Snoopy Fanzine." It was a combination of Snoopy fan art, local punk band interviews, nonsense rants, sensical rants and general insanity. One could say it was love at first sight.
I copied the layout and format of this zine to make my first zine where I…Continue

Well I printed 20 copies of issue 3 and so far have mailed out maybe 8 or so. Want to trade or something? Let me know.
Happy new year first of all! I've started to work on the second issue of my perzine Fixing A Hole. The release will be somewhere in the first quarter of this year. Each issue, written on a digital Alphasmart Neo 2 and manually transferred to an analogue Sperry-Remington Tenfifty, will come with an original Polaroid as cover photo (different for each issue). I intent to include more (loose) original artwork in or with the issue as well. The content of this second issue of Fixing A Hole will…Continue
Issue four of Spare Ink is available. Twenty half sized pages printed on an inkjet provide several short fiction stories as well as some rambling in slice of life format interspersed among scanned images of drawings and paintings. Mostly the focus is lowbrow artistic with a humorous spin (hopefully).…Continue

I hope you have had a great start to 2016. I can't believe it's 2016. I started this website in August of 2008. I'd like to invite you to become more involved in WMZ in the new year.
I see a lot of people come on here and then comment on how dead it is. And yeah, it can be. The weird thing is, I approve over about 50 people a month. We are now over 6,550 members. So, where are you all? Why aren't you speaking up, showing us your zines and commenting on posts? As my mom used…Continue

Over the past couple of days, I've been working on getting to grips with Photoshop CS5 and honestly, it's been pretty frustrating. However, it has led me to finally produce a four page mini zine themed around crystal healing. You can check it out for free here: http://issuu.com/mckenzie-quinn/docs/merged_document_2
Hopefully the new year will bring new ideas and significantly longer zines (maybe with better…Continue
I hope the year treated you well. I look forward to a new year of courage, motivation and determination to stay healthy and creative. I'll be hosting an urban soul farmer workshop at Bakersfield College in February. I've decided to come out with an Urban Soul Farmer zine to give out at the college.
