a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I've started a zine promotion project on Twitter. It's located atwww.twitter.com/zinenews. If you would like your zine plugged there, simply drop me a message to my We Make Zines inbox which has the following information:
The name of your zine, some details about it and whether you do trades, distro, etc and a mailing address for same.
The web address for your zine's blog or Etsy shop

I used to stay up late, tapping away at my computer keyboard or reading a book when I should of turned the lights out hours ago.
Getting older I try to get to bed at a reasonable hour, especially if I am working the next morning. While I could stay up as late as I wanted to (being an adult does have its advantages) I find I have lost my night owl tendancies.
However when I am inspired, that is a whole other story. There have been instances where an idea has struck me…Continue
Over the weekend I ran into an friend who owns one of Milwaukee's awesome indy bookstores. I'd mentioned to him in the past that he should carry zines, and he's always hemmed and hawed about it.
When I saw him on Sunday he said he was open to having a discussion about it. So I'm asking for talking points to convince him. I think it would be great, as MKE doesn't have that many places that carry zines.
Questions I'm anticipating:
1) Which Zines? …Continue
I love to browse the classifieds in the Zine Worlds and send out random postcards and notes to the people that are looking for penpals, submissions, mail art and the like. So, I'm playing with the idea of making a zine centered around classifieds like the Classifieds section in the Zine Worlds. I would love to hear what people think about this idea. If you think it's a good idea, send me some info for your own zinester classified ad. It could be for swaps, handouts, mail art, penpals, or…Continue

Hi there! I have a nice little collection of vegan zines and food zines in general. Does anyone have any favorites? I check Etsy weekly and zine shops (the later without luck).
If you have a food zine and want to trade for my zine (the easy vegan) - please contact me!

Forgot to mention this: the first six issues of Without Words & Without Kneeling have been compiled into one giant awesome zine! It's great. As far as what it is, it's like this...
"Tomas Moniz (Rad Dad creator and editor) has been doing something unprecedented of late- a serialized novella in zine form. Not your standard zine fare. It's a story unveiled…Continue

Due to popular demand, our dearest distro employee, Chask'e, got to work and entered a bunch more information for most of the 75 zines we have on Etsy (and some of the books, as well). Included now is: number of pages! zine sizes! inside images! some back covers, even! All of which might give you a better…Continue

I live in Vancouver BC and I'm new-ish to the zine game. I am here because my hermit impulse is to photocopy a dozen of whatever I got going and then retreat back to the darkness, fondling my toner-smelly pages and giggling with satisfaction while eating a victory dinner of peanut butter toast and getting crumbs all over everything.
But it occurs to me that zines are best shared, not used as coasters, toast-holders, or spider-whackers.
So it would be good to…Continue

Just realized there's a long list of things about to go out of print and/or out of stock and maybe a little 'last chance warning' was in order. There were so many I forewent the descriptions and just provided links, please forgive my haste.

As a result of being rather hectic these past few weeks as well as the cumulative effects of vengeful technology’s refusal to cooperate with me, I have had a bit of a zine lull. But I am now back in the swing of things!
The Sarah Tea- Rex Etsy Shop is now stocked with copies of all of my zines- so they are ready to be ordered and sent to you all! I have managed to get a copy of …Continue

I've been looking for an excuse to use one of those coupon codes on Etsy for a while now and I guess being on the verge of our 500th sale on there is a good enough one. So, until the end of the month, you get 15% off any purchase, whenever you use the code below.
When we started it last year, I thought it would just be a few extra sales, so it's been a wonderful surprise. Thanks.…Continue

It may not be happening in your neighbourhood yet, but if the UK manage to close down all of it's branch libraries because of so-called cost cutting, it could happen anywhere. Please support this by sharing with others.
