a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hello, first blog post. Well, I already have a blog. It's a tumblr that I'm fairly proud of, however this is my first blog post for WMZ. I'm quite excited to use this thing, and I really want to be able to meet other people around here. Sadly, I'm beginning to think that there's a lack of people in Melbourne/Victoria/Australia who are accustomed to the art that is…Continue

I'm pretty excited because the OOAK Gallery just has it's first zine contribution arrive today: Best Dream Ever, a mini-comic by Don Picton. I don't have pictures of it up yet and I should be putting it up for sale in the distro before a few days.
I had approached Don Picton, the maker of Best Dream Ever, about selling a few in my distro because it was perfect. The comix itself is a little larger than the size of my hand and, well, the OOAK Gallery specializes in small…Continue

Want to send a thank you and a shout out to those who donated to get the Minibook Exchange going. I had even purchased some books from people to get some stock. I attended Cyphacon last weekend and ALL of the books were taken by interested readers. If I can get to more conventions, then that portion of the Minibook Exchange will certainly be an advertising success for zine and comix makers trying to get the word out.
And my zine library list has gotten quite long. Goodness…Continue

It was a good first time for me at the Midwest Zine Fest in Champaign Urbana. (Or, as craigslist calls it, "Chambana.") The fest was on the Urbana side. I drove down with friends Nicki and Meghan from SPOC -Self Publishers of Chicago, and they had a table. I had my Junk Drawer table, which was actually two old card tables I brought. Other Chicago writers making the trip included…Continue

It was another great time at the Chicago Zine Fest, but I almost didn't make it. The fest filled up on the first day of registration, and I had to get on a waiting list. Fortunately a spot opened up at the last week. Then I had to buckle down and finish my new zine that I'd begun slacking on.
I met some…Continue

I have a new policy on trading: I'll send you mine when you send me yours. I rarely receive any of the zines that I was hoping to read!
Some zinesters are trader schmoes. They're people who promise a zine in return for a zine, but never send one.
A lot of trader schmoes are just…Continue
