This blog post will be updated whenever a distro writes a description for one of my zines, or someone writes a review. If you've read my zine and would like to write something for me to post here, let me know - it would make me very happy! Continue

This issue of my perzine is loosely based around lists of 4. I write about…

Hello out there!
My name is Sonia and I used to work with a group of womyn from Maine called the Mimi Collective. For about three years, we dedicated ourselves to learning and providing resources and workshops about Continue
reproductive and sexual health, consent, assault prevention, survivor
support, gender and queer and feminist hystory. The opportunity to
learn about our bodies, deconstruct oppression and grow in a safe space
will be an inspiration for my work for years…

Heh, I'm a turd. After doing not very much promotion of mélange #2, I've started work on mélange #3. Yeah, the mood found me. I feel more confident about, well... myself, what I want to say, and how I want to say it.… Continue

I'm currently accepting zines for distro consideration
! Help me build up the distro's catalog, will you? ;-)
Looking for zines written…

Just wanted to share that my band NIghtwood is thinking of embarking on a wee zine project and we've set up a poll to gather your opinions as to what we should write about.
We posted a blog about this today called We (heart) zines, do you?
There's also info about a zine making workshop in Montreal that's
happening over at the Ste. Emilie Skillshare… Continue

Hello all! I've written a new Examiner article! This time I dive into the how-to world of how to make a zine. Obviously, we all know that there is no right or wrong way to make a zine, but hey, there are lots of people out there who don't think so!… Continue

just finished mélange #2
. can't believe how much energy i've put into this one. it's nothing like what i pictured when i first started, and i'm tickled by what this might say about how the "creative process" works. thinking about where my head has been while making it is making me feel very tired. gonna sit on it for a bit, clear my mind. hope to have it in print and circulating in a couple of… Continue

I won't lie, I'm still buzzing from the single launch. Months of sincere effort has now produced something to be proud of. Although, when I say "effort", I mean I just rocked up when I was supposed to when I was supposed to. DJ NU put in the real hard yards, and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it.… Continue

Hah. Spot the Ning noob. Only just found this entire section for blog posts. Woopsie.
Spose I should write a little bit in here. Been working on mélange #2. Almost 2/3 of the way through - hoping to have it finished in the next couple of months. Yeah, I know that's slack, but I like to take my time with zine projects - put some thought into them. Don't know if that comes across, particularly when the iterations of editing result in something minimal. But I suppose art is like a… Continue

Yes, that is correct. The Silk City Series
is now a book, being published by Knickerbocker Circus Publishing, a small press out of Astoria, NY.
It's a collection of stories about the everyday lives of working-class people in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. The book has already garnered praise from publications such as Maximum Rock n Roll Magazine, who said "...the presentation is very beautiful and put together with an eye for the antique, forgotten, miserable and… Continue

– a yankee newsprint old school zine in a new world that had a great word up with Mike Doskocil about Drunks With Guns, has heaps of reviews for bands I’ll probably never hear cos I’m flat broke but has plenty of spirit, guts and leaves black ink on yr fingers. What more could you need in this new world of blogs and glossy personal zines and shite. I got mine from Big Star here in Adelaide which surprised the fuck out of me but then the world is getting’ smaller.… Continue

Here at QZAP 2010 is off to a roaring start. We've now got 300 zines, flyers, and odd ephemera online in the Archive! If this is your first time here or you're a regular reader, please take some time to browse and find something new-to-you to read.
There are the classics like J.Ds, Anonymous Boy, I ♥ Amy Carter, and Susan Mini Mag. There are more recent zines like the 2008 RMO Tour zine from our friends in the Rude Mechanical Orchestra,… Continue

I can tell that somewhere deep inside me I've already begun "Good Night, Cephalopod." I've already got the text and have been kind of stuck on the drawings--and distracted by life. But I'm getting that drawing feeling. This will be my second zine done entirely in colored pencil.

this website is awesome! it's 'sort of' a zine archive, mostly into punk zines.
they have lots of old zines, back from the 90s and 80s, but they also have some "contemporary" (aka 2000s) zines.
though i'm not that much into punk, it's amazing the work these guys are doing in scanning old zines and making them available online for… Continue

This is my favourite way to distribute copies of my zine, and get copies of other peoples'. Since I signed up here in the summer, it's been going pretty well, but lately, I've noticed that I'm sending a lot of stuff out and not getting much back. Maybe it's just that it's getting cold out and no-one wants to leave their house.
I just sent out a few emails asking some people if they've received my zines, because I know that's how I used to keep track of trades - by sending back… Continue

Someone saw my recently-added page here and said, "Nick, I can't believe you're still doing this stuff." I took it as a compliment. I did my first fanzine in 1980 (I was 12 at the time), then had a ten-year run from 81-91 with a SINGLE title, took some time to get married and have kids, then did another print zine from 03-08 before going the way of the dreaded e-zine (although I must admit it's much easier, cheaper, and faster to do).
BUT---I'll always have the itch to do an… Continue
