I Need Advice for a Perzine

So I'm preparing writings for a perzine and I was just wondering, what makes a perzine? The one I'm making is composed of ranting posts and random thoughts (like taking a shower thoughts) on Tumblr. Some are long and some are like two or four sentences long. But when I write stuff, it's like a journal, but I often question myself. I often wonder if my memory is right or if I misinterpreted something. What's an ideal length for a perzine? What if it's too personal? I often feel like I'm…

I'm stuck. Any Ideas?

So I made the basic layout outline and the fill-in for issue 1, like, months ago. ISE/IDC is a Music/I guess Political zine that focuses on ALL music that is, in my opinion, worth listening to, not restricted by genre, and then my rants on problems going on in the world. Some local, some... not, I guess.

So in between the musical part and the political part, there are 2 pages that only serve as transition. One page is completed, but I have no clue for the second one. I can't figure…

California’s Central Valley was once considered the methamphetamine capitol of the world. This made growing up in Modesto interesting as cookers and users were everywhere. Your boss, co-workers, landlord, next door neighbor, etc. were all equally likely to be involved with the substance in one way or another. Although I'm not sure of our current status in the drug monopoly, in the 1990's Modesto, Sacramento and San Diego all shared the "Meth Capitol" moniker. It's uncertain which city was…

Eulogy for Apartment #3

Today, as I was leaving for work, a funny smell hit me as I walked out the door. A rot of some sort. I pinched my face and went about my morning.

They moved in down the hall about two months ago. Like a summer storm, their fights were shrouded shouts that exploded and then went away.

What I like about living here is that people don’t get in your business. We coexist. Don’t get me wrong, the people who live here will say Hi to each other once in a while but the language and skin…

Work, 9-5

I dont really work 9-5 I work 3-11:30 and sometimes I continue to work when I get home or even wake up. Straight to the drawing board. Looking for me pencils and paper, distressed yet calm of what actually to jot down as a quick doodle or a fine piece of Art.

Continuing with my day I ponder if I should actually call the agency and at least see if they do have work.

Work, work, work, work for pay or play work. Works work kills you, or the stuff that doesn't pay you enjoy to do.…

Call for swaps


I’m putting together a poncho-come-zine-library this summer that I’m gonna tour around some of the UK’s more generic-lit-fests to advocate DIY-publishing as a method of getting aspiring authors/writers/artists/whatevers to get their work out into the physical public domain and away from the ocean that is the internet. In the face of major publishers and profiteers, I hope to champion creativity and expressionism as a reason to distribute your work, rather than for the…
