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

It hasn't been easy, what with power cuts, computer viruses and more, but we are finally laying out the first issue of the monthly art zine The Art Pages.
It's such an important venture for artists here in Zambia who are so talented but little known. Now is their chance to share their talents, as they are the writers and producers of the zine. I have been helping them with promotion and can honestly say I am proud to be part of this… Continue

It's Sub Rosa 1
by Taryn Hipp. Taryn has done zines for a long time and I think I read her old one Girl Swirl, but I hadn't read her newer one. Sub Rosa 1 is still pretty old. She is currently working on Sub Rosa 6.
Anyway, here is why this zine was so good. You know how when you and a friend are talking about real life stuff and it gets very deep and you or they end up spewing out a whole bunch of fears and confessions… Continue

This zine was fueled by Polaroids, heartache, and Regina Spektor. It's a journey through memories and emotion and it's up to your own interpretation because, in the words of King Haggard, "My secrets keep themselves."
It's 34 pages, 1/2 sized and full colour, which also makes it $5
[This just… Continue

I feel rather bad that my first post here is going to seem so shamelessly commercial in nature, but I'm in the process of setting up a zine library in conjunction with a shop called SHOP here in Bristol, and we're canvassing for donations and contributions.
All the information is posted below:

I know this is meant to be a blog post, but I can only hope that someone reads it.
I am trying to start another mini-zine (my other mini-zine is a perzine called Army of Her) called Grrrl Power and it's all about female empowerment. I feel that with the everyday bombardment by the media, women are feeling more and more isolated as higher and increasingly impossible standards are expected of them, as well as, not being expected to succeed. Really self-contradictory.
Anyway, I… Continue
