Due to a death in my family and starting classes, I've had to delay the normal functions of GENEROUS. The Spring/Summer issue is going to have some empahsis on health but since this is the first time I'm going with a theme, other topics are gladly welcomed!
If you haven't read my previous posts, here's a briefing.
GENEROUS is a women-themed 'zine with a humorous yet informative edge. We poke fun at pop culture instead of being a victim of here-today, gone-tomorrow… Continue

It is finished. I spent the entire weekend putting it together. Damn I feel like I accomplished something for a change. I'm already starting another issue... the writing part anyway. And I'm working on an 8 page mini that will be nothing but doodling. I may send it along with other stuff as an extra.

I named the new zine Hazel Harper. I'll be putting it together this weekend.
That's all I have to say about that.

Whooooo hooooo!!! I can cross it off of my never-ending 'LIFE GOALS' list: I have published my first real zine.
Ya - i've done lots of those dinky ones to fill the boring summer days: reporting on the town's birthdays, giving reviews of the latest movie-release...nothing that packs any zest - nothing of this caliber. The FIRST INFINITE ZINE
was great - it was amazing - it was inspiring - it was even a little smudged from the Xerox… Continue

In a world of misses heres a 100 Plus HITS!
Have you had a chance to look at the latest print issue of Musea (#167 Mar.'09)? It's the big best-100-new-music-of-the-entire-world, music list issue. It's been getting a lot of notice from ... well all over the world. The London Symphony Orchestra sent me a nice e-mail, thank you - they made the list for their Youtube Symphony Idea, and so did a video by the Trons, an all machine combo from Australia. Plus much… Continue

The new issue of Mixtape has hit my letterbox and excited me just a little too much. I've stuck it up on my Online Store for all you shoppers out there..........
"This is a beautifully crafted zine. Since its humble beginnings, Mixtape has grown from strength to strength. What began as an exciting project between two crafty females from Melbourne has become a very professionally printed, full colour zine that is still all about DIY and a strong love of art.
Issue 8… Continue

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
