Working on the 5th edition of Stolen Sharpie Revolution and I need your photos!

 With 21,000 copies of the book in print through 4 editions, Stolen Sharpie Revolution has been the go-to resource for zines and zine culture since 2002. However, Stolen Sharpie Revolution is currently out of print. I’m about to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a 5th edition and I need your help! I’d like to make a Kickstarter promo video with photos of Stolen Sharpie Revolution, including your photos! Show me photos of SSR on your bookshelf, in a shop window, on a table at a zine fest. Show me SSR with with you cats, dogs, or hedgehogs! I’d love to see a copy in the middle of you floor scattered with zine making scraps, tucked out of your backpack, or being read in public. All submissions that are included in the video will receive a free copy of the book when it is printed. All submissions must be received by 2 February 2014 Submissions should be sent to: StolenSharpieRevolution@live.com STOLENSHARPIEREVOLUTION.ORG Did you know that the zine resource listings that have always appeared in the back of Stolen Sharpie Revolution are now collected and updated on the StolenSharpieRevolution.org website? The resources were always the most difficult part of upkeep and a website makes this so much easier. Check it out for zine distros, stores that sell zines, a calendar of zine events and more!  As always SSR is only as good as the information I have. If you see that I’m missing something, a ne zine event, a shop in your town that sells zines, a zine distro that hasn’t been included, please send a message through the contact form on the site and I’ll get it added. Please reblog and spread the word! In zines we trust, Alex Wrekk *Multiple copies received from a single person will result on only one free book. Owner of submitted photo reserves all rights to submitted images but may be asked for it to be included in promotional materials.

Autistic Zine

(Currently Untitled Autistic Zine - 2013)

Hey there! This is a call for submissions for a compilation zine about being autistic that will be made totally by autistic people. My plan is for this zine to be available online and on paper. Allistic (non-autistic) people are welcome and encouraged to read and share this zine when it’s finished (and share this call for submissions), but are not currently welcome to submit to this zine – this one’s just for us.

2nd year Quizzical

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

There was one in Samuel Johnson's circle who could mimic the Doctor just perfectly. His catch phrase, that so impressed Johnson's biographer Boswell, went like this, "Davy has some convivial pleasantry about him; but 'tis a futile fellow." Name the mimic.

IS: David Garrick (I even gave you the answer in the question!) Boswell adds this, "He (Garrick) was always jealous that Johnson spoke lightly of him.

The site has my profile hidden. I dunno why. It's not like I've said anything that is a secret.

But, I'll repost it here. If anybody wants to say "hi" or something, that's cool.

I had not really set out to create a zine. It…

looking for free zines

Hey . My name is Michelle. I recently found out about y'all and I'm super excited about that!

I work at Railroad Street Youth Project in Great Barrington , MA. I am trying to start up a zine lending library there for constituents to check out. I'm wondering if anyone will donate some zines to help start it up. If not,  do you know of any good resources that I can contact to get a bunch of different free zines? I'm open to any other suggestions you might have as well. Thank…

Amongst other things, this one has writings on a love of…

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

This week’s quiz question is ‘name that novel – we’ll know the author right away -’ and solve your love life while you’re at it. This quote is a conversation where boy X is telling about his love woes to girl “Y”. And her response ( which is so simple and good that it fits just about anyone in love). For extra credit, not only name the novel but the characters talking. Here…
