a place for zinesters - writers and readers
We're very excited about International Zine Month here at the Ms. Valerie Park Distro and have some plans for celebrating this month, the biggest being to have more zines in stock at one time than ever before! For a while now, we've had about 120 some zines in stock at any given time, with ones selling out and others coming into stock, but we'd like to get 150 zines in stock by the end of the…Continue
I haven't been on We Make Zines in forever. But this year I decided to participate in the International Zine Month events and for the first day I had to sign into my account and write about this month.
I was looking forward to it for about six months now. I broke my elbow and had a surgery around late December and have been out of commission for way too long. I felt useless and couldn't engage in any extensive creative endeavors. But I'm better now and I am so excited for this month…Continue

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
