I have just lost HOURS, I repeat, HOURS, looking over the blogs, zinesters' sites, zines of WMZ! I added myself to the list of wemakezines family last night! At last! I want to also tell the nation that my quarterly publication, the Australian Book Arts Journal plans to have zine articles in each and every issue so get in touch and let me know what you're doing! Who knows, we might end up with a journal on zines!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm busy now...off to…
On Lives Press is pleased to announce the release of You Can Finish This Later.
You Can Finish This Later is an illustrated chapbook of short fiction. Mike Parish penned the stories and Dan Tarnowski drew the drawings. Dug up from deep holes in the backyards of their minds, the collection considers the things we leave behind and the changes we learn to accept,… Continue

First of all, this is my first blog post on this site as I'm new here, so for anyone reading this thanks for giving me a chance! I guess the zine experience is really all about finding out about different philosophies and/or opinions on a huge range of subjects, which really is what makes them generally quite personal, but I understand that there are a lot of zines and related blogs out there so thanks for taking the time to read what I have to say…
So I've been reading zines and had it in my head that I wanted to make one for years. And today I finally sat down and started to do it. I had my glue stick. I had all the stuff I had written and wanted to include.
Then I freaked out. I got scared that I would mess it up and it would turn out horrible. Finally I got over myself and started making it, but I am scared that it won't be good.
Will someone reassure me that it doesn't have to be perfect? What was your first zine… Continue
So im in the process of making the new issue of QUEENS. there's so many bands i want to right about so i think im gunna make it a music issue. but of course there will still be the normal mix of art, music, rants, fashion. if you wanna contribute get in touch :)
I write about my town, my first (and only) job - and my dad even wrote a story about the habits of Jersey geese. It's very cut-and-paste, and I swear it's more interesting than I make it sound. You can buy it at my distro - everything is alphabetical, so just look under A-F zines.…
So, i guess I should use this blog thing, because I have exciting news.
Well... exciting for me.
Last week, I officially finished my first real zine, a perzine called The Universe and You: An Owner's Manual.
Everything is cut, collated, folded, stapled, covers painted... it feels so good. Handed out the first few copies already. Plan on handing more out this weekend at the NJ Zine Fest, trades and whatnot!
Not to mention a little tiny minizine on facial hair… Continue
Some Junk Drawer zines can now be found in New York City. All are for sale at Bluestockings bookstore. They have a fine selection of books and zines, and a few Chicago zines. Junk Drawer issue #1 is in the zine library collection at ABC No Rio. Both these places are on the Lower East Side, and are worth checking out. They are great supporters of independent writing and zines.…
It's been a while since we've added any new zines, so many of us working on zines and never finishing them, but yesterday the new issue of Sugar and Heartstrings came out! We also restocked a couple, too. I've been out on tour for the last month, so I just started back to work today on some zines I was working on before I left. I included the rest of this month's update below for… Continue
yep, you heard [read] me right, i'm looking for new zines... so far, most of the zines i got are from the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and i'm looking for something "different".
i'm mostly interested in zines from Japan (or any other Asian country) and from anywhere in Africa, since most of the things i get to read are with an occidental cultural/social view (ok, Australian zines are from the other side of the world - to an European - but still...). the only problem is they must be… Continue

I have been busy working / writing on a new zine since February. The content has been coming along nicely & I think I have enough stuff written up now, to put the issue out. So as soon as I have enough 'free time' I will be typing up & laying out the zine. This issue is going to be Rebel In Magenta #17 and its going to have a lot to do with turning 30 and what that did to me (my thoughts, changes in life, thinking back. etc). I'm really excited about this issue.
I also… Continue

Hello all - been lurking for a while, but finally joined instead of just obsessively reading the forum.
Managed to force/convince myself that the second issue of my Clash/Joe Strummer/punk(ish)/related zine that I managed to scrape together wasn't a total waste of ink and double-sided tape and people might actually be interested.
Got some extra emergency high quality photo copies done at the local art shop before posting it off to be printed,
prices have gone right up now… Continue
This issue is dedicated to discussing my history with sexual abuse as an adolescent, and my journey to healing and forgiving. Message or comment if you're interested in buying or trading. $3 for North America, message me for international.
