Yesterday I put up a month long exhibit in the lobby of the University of Washington Graduate Library (Suzzallo/Allen to locals). It was a bit tough aiming it at mostly people that might not know what a zine is as well as trying to add books to the collection about radical and zine cataloging encouraging librarians to collect zines in academic library collections (during March the ACRL conference, as well as the Zine Librarian Unconference, will be taking place in Seattle). It was also hard to… Continue

Check it out:
I included zines by some members of We Make Zines. Make sure to add a comment. The number of views and comments bumps it up. And, of course, purchase something that strikes your fancy.

I am a little zine maker from York and would be really keen to get involved in a zine swap!
My friend and i started by making a zine together... (we are collectively known as ^happycat^ ) we gave it away for free!( plus free 'artefacts'...yeah!)
We then made our own independent zines (mine leaning towards very childish drawings/polaroids and text...my friend's is a showcase of print making/illustrations and lots of birds!) and started taking them to… Continue

Richmond Zine Fest 2009 is currently being organized and we're looking for a few more people to help be core organizers. Core organizers are responsible for the logistics of the event: settling on a venue, date (which is already somewhat settled), as well as figuring out how to finance and promote the event, and taking care of any other smaller issues concerning the Richmond Zine Fest.
We're currently a group of 4 or 5 women who are friendly and get along really well. We individually… Continue

The title says it all, friends! Either comment or shoot me an e-mail at calendargirlzine AT gmail DOT com if you would like a copy.
Numero Huit is in the works, but it probably won't get done until April when I am done school.
Srsly, I only have 6 weeks left of my first year of university. Where did the time go?!

The new issue of Zine World
is hot off the high-speed photocopier! (See details at the ZW website
.) This issue is smaller than the last one, but that's only because the last one was so delayed it built up more content. I really like the cover art for this one; I think it looks totally rad. Tomorrow is my day off work, so I'll be working on stapling, taping, stuffing envelopes, etc., so I can get… Continue

1st meeting for Richmond Zine Fest 2009 will be happening later next week. Probably preliminary, not exactly open type of meeting, and a very short meeting to boot.
Updates will occur more often as the planning progresses and details are confirmed. If you want the updates, it is best to either bookmark www.richmondzinefest.org or add us as friends on myspace or facebook (links are at the top of our profile page at the moment). We may send out messages to our WMZ friends, but who… Continue

A big props up to everyone who submitted a zine for the exhibit! It was exceptional!!! We had over 200 people attend the opening and multiple people cutting and pasting!!!! People were spread out over the gallery floor. Now that's what I call upping the status quo white wall art world!
Pictures posted on our Profile!

I thought this would be a good place to keep a list of my freshly-started but swiftly-growing zine collection! :D

The latest cover done by Dexter Cockburn himself! Thank-you, Dex! Now to get #5 rolling! It will be out on March 12th and will feature some art by various alternative/xxx rated artists. It will also have an exclusive interview with Angus of Hatchetface and the Vipers and some special guest poets and stories of shit with my pal Lula May Firebush. There is also an ass contest where you send in a pic of your ass to firstname.lastname@example.org and you win a BRM t-shirt! Deadline for that… Continue

I'm way new at this, I just have always loved music, writing and drawing so this past summer I thought, "Why not combine all those things?"
So I did, came up with Squid Pro Quo and finally printed it out. It's basically a punk rock zine with interviews, album reviews, cartoons and musicians' columns. At least that's what I've got thus far.
In issue #1, you'll find:
-Interview with Joe Queer and John P. Hayes (aka Wimpy Rutherford) of THE QUEERS!
-Interview with Tony… Continue

I've been toying with a few ideas, things to work on between what I already have going...
- Photo study minis -- I already have a good start on a lot of photo studies. I have series of fire hydrants, fences, and churches already, so depending on length I really wouldn't need to take many additional photos to complete a zine (seperate zine for each theme). I'm thinking of scrapbooking a layout for each little page but not actually attaching the photos. Then I could get…

So because I've already finished my 2nd story a while back (still awaiting publication), I've decided to start on a new project. It's Nymphoids' Survival Guide. It should be a survival guide for girls (inside and out :P, no discrimination here loves!), including some fashion guides and DIY projects to look amazingly awesomely cool without breaking the bank, boy/girl problems, school/work stress, and everything about us girls/ladies/ women! XD from stories to advice to photos or original artwork… Continue

Okay, so before I tell you about my new project, someof you might be wondering why I call my zine and almost everything Nymphoid(s). Well, when I was trying to think of a name for my first zine, I was at first cinsidering more generic names... since it was a heart break series... i was thinking of cheesy names... but you see, that isn't like me at all. I like metphores, hidden meanings and such things...
So I was like, I need somethign that can represent everything that I will write… Continue

So, I have a zillion ideas and rather than cram them into one big mish-mash, I am trying to seperate out some of my themes into more specific, focused ideas.
- Blithe Ire #1 -- Next to be ready to print; my art/lit mag that I've thus far gotten most of my material for by pestering friends. This one is pretty open-ended.... I have so far a really cheap recipe, some poetry, an article about collecting concert bootlegs, a philosophical rant, some short fiction... I still…

CHEAP FUNDRAISER PRINT SALE/CUSTOM ILLUSTRATIONS
My name is Ramsey and I make a zine called list filled with illustrations! If you like my zine, it's a good chance you like it because of the drawings, so I figured it was relevant to post about my illustration sale on here.
My cat, Stella, became very ill over the holiday and the only way to save her was for her to get surgery. Obviously, surgery of any kind, even for an animal, is very expensive. Since she was a young cat,… Continue
