We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

For the longest time I've been complaining about how there wasn't a zine scene here in Florida. So this week I decided to actually do something about it. I think that there needs to be a place like the IPRC and Boxcar Books here in Florida. There needs to be a space where people can just go to write or do art, and to make copies. I got two friends together and I pitched the idea, and they agree so we've started the process of incorporating, and when that's done we're going to file for tax exemption. Today we even found the perfect space! Anyways I'll be posting more details about this soon! If anyone has any tips or would like to help feel free to contact me.
I decided that it needs to include a zine library, so I've taken my personal collection of zines and I've started cataloging them and putting them in protective sleeves.
If you'd like to donate some zines please email me at:
thissaturdaynight@yahoo.com
Or send them right along:
This Saturday Night
4535 S. Lockwood Ridge Rd.
Sarasota, FL 34231


I finally added a bunch of new zines to the distro! There's been a lot of orders lately, so I applied for a service through the USPS where they can just come and pick up the packages from my door, so that's been quite convenient.


I finally finished all of my college applications and essays so now I can focus on all of my zine-related stuff.

Thanks! It was nice meeting you too!

After the zine fest, I was thinking about putting the zine library up there, there's actually a zine scene there.

And yes I would love to distribute I Was a Teenage Mormon.

I love that you are doing this. I wish we had something similar up here in St. Petersburg!

BTW it was really nice to meet you this weekend. Let me know if you want to distribute I Was a Teenage Mormon, and I'll hook you up with wholesale costs.

Evil Flower #2 is back on. I already have your address so I'll send it out today.

Oh okay thanks! I hope I get to read Evil Flower #2 soon!

Ok, actually Evil Flower #2 has been recalled. I'm pulling a McDonalds. I know that sounds weird but I realized in my sleep last night that these is one subject I wrote about that I wouldn't want anyone in my town reading. And even though no one in my town knows what a zine is, I can't risk it. Sorry!

I'll let you know when I'm done with it for real though.

Aw, a promise ring! Congratulations on that and all your zine doings! Sounds like exciting times :)

Okay cool! Would you mind if I put the copy of Evil Flower #1 in the zine library?

And I'll be sending my zine out tomorrow! :)
