a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I'm thinking of putting together a book called "To My Rapist." A compilation of poems and images dedicated to those dark pieces of them that still remain deep in our brains. Nothing too graphic, but melancholy, anger, etc. etc. is all welcome. I will be sharing a few of my pieces as well - if you'd like to see those to get an idea of what I'm talking about or if you'd like to submit email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Paws Up!” is a brand new zine that focuses on all things cats: the human connection with them, how great they are, how much they sleep, that cute little thing they do that you’re convinced no other cat ever does, and everything else embodying why cats are so great.
Hello, I'm trying to raise money to get my new zine off the ground. Nothing extravagant, just $200 to cover website upgrades and in-kind print copies of the 1st issue of the zine to contributors. If you have anything to spare it would be very much appreciated. Let me know that you've donated and I will…Continue

As part of my ongoing effort to simplify my life, I've re-released a zine and a chapbook that were out of circulation for a long time. The zine "Genius (Love)" has been out of circulation for 4 years because I never found the time to screenprint the covers! I decided to re-do the cover so I can just…Continue

Love is like a rock
It's oddly shaped
Hardly even fully clean
And can inflict pain
Unto the most thick-skinned individuals
But it's always there
In all the down low places
You don't care to look
It's under your feet
And in cracks in the wall
It's a constant
Like the wind
It's a token of the past
Like a memory

Dear Potential Readers and Contributors,
I have been tinkering with the idea of starting a literary rag for all of the poets out there that don't quite fit into the mainstream mold. So, I've finally gone and done it. This magazine is about expressing yourself. We do not restrict our publication to the confines of traditional poetry. If you write about drunken nights out, remembered or imagined, we want to see it. If you write about how society…

Following on from part one and what events I attended as part of International Zine Month here in Auckland.
Hands On Poetry

The Hands On Poetry was an event focusing on poetry zines and National Poetry Day. The launch of self-published poetry anthology Hands Like Mirrors was the…Continue
