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!

Call for Submissions: Whatever Saves #5!

Call for Submissions: Whatever Saves #5

Whatever Saves is my infrequently produced zine, put together whenever the mood or the muse strikes.  In my next issue, I want to highlight the stories and artwork created by people who don't have children, don't want children, maybe want children but can't have them, or other folks with complicated relationships with reproduction and progeny.  Time to flip the narrative on its head and show the world how the other half (more than half, if I'm…

Physical Zines

I would like to print a physical zine one day, but I just can't figure out how. I got the text part figured out, Microsoft word, but how do I made the cover of the zine? How do I print out the cover without having white borders around it? I can't do it with Adobe Indesign, especially since it's temporary and I use Scribus to make the e-zines. And that DPI crap, how do I make the pictures have a 300 DPI without shrinking? It's so confusing and I feel like a blockhead. Someone recommended…
