a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I hope you have had a great start to 2016. I can't believe it's 2016. I started this website in August of 2008. I'd like to invite you to become more involved in WMZ in the new year.
I see a lot of people come on here and then comment on how dead it is. And yeah, it can be. The weird thing is, I approve over about 50 people a month. We are now over 6,550 members. So, where are you all? Why aren't you speaking up, showing us your zines and commenting on posts? As my mom used…Continue
I made my first legit fanzine. It's about I Love Lucy. You probably think you know enough about I Love Lucy, but I bet you don't. It's a great show and a great story.
I only have a few left after the zine symposium. Get it while ya can.
You can find the zine in my Etsy shop.…Continue

I love the list of activities for IZM that Alex and crew some up with, but I am always so busy making a zine for the PZS that I don't get to do much of the activities.
Today (day 3- Zine Appreciation Day) I bought some zines from Stranger Danger Distro.
Day 1 was to list ten things you like about zines. Here is my list:

My zine "In Praise of Winter" is now in the Etsy shop. It's a short, sweet, illustrated zine about why I have come to look forward to the post-holiday winter months. Maybe it would be a nice break for you from the heat!Continue

So, a few years ago I tried to change the appearance of WMZ and it changed everyone else's personal profile pages. I freaked out and changed it back.
I realize this site has looked exactly the same since 2008. Do you like that or not like it? if I change to a different older theme we can keep personal pages the same. But, If I do a new updated theme (which I assume are much better) you'll lose your personal layouts.
Now is your time to give me your opinion. Do…Continue

This is the review I wrote on Good Reads for Dave Roche's new book If Nothing But the Sky
As a rule I am not a huge lover of travel books or zines. They often have too little personal observations and thought provoking thoughts and often become just a list of we met these people and then we went here and craziness ensued or we ate this and found this out of the way place aren't we amazing?
Dave Roche's modest book about his zine tour trips to Australia and Southeast…Continue

Did you have a tweener heart breaking crush with some teen idol? What was the kookiest thing you did in the name of your crush? For possible zine. Can I do it in a month?
Feel free to pm the story to me if you want. Thanks!!

I always mean to write a bunch of zine reviews together and I never do, so I think I will do a series of mini zine reviews here.
The other night I read These Here are Crazy Times #2 by Sarah May.Continue

Do you use old photographs, postcards or ephemera in your zines? Or maybe you're like me and just tend to collect them and are drawn to them.
If so, check out my shop The Cedar Chest. Free Shipping offer from now till Nov 6th!

You can create a special pdxzines postcard and have it on the wall as a show of support during the Portland Zine Symposium. So, even if you can't be there is person you can still represent.
The 5 dollars to participate helps fund the zine sympoiusm. You can find out more here.
