We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I have been toying with the idea of creating a blog that would be a central space for people to share submission calls for compilation zines.

The person requesting the submissions would email me their description and instructions including a deadline.

I will also encourage follow ups - being that the person would email me when the zine is completed and let me know how people could obtain the zine.

I would post all of the information on the blog.

Would you like to see this? Would you use it for submission calls? Would you use it to order zines?

it sounds good to me. do tell when you decide to put it up... :D

although sometimes the problem in general when posting calls for submissions is that a lot of people call for submissions, less people answer them...

Yes please!

Could I suggest hosting it on Tumblr? That way the rest of us with tumblrs could reblog the submission info and pass the word on :)

Rieka - it would be via Wordpress most likely, as i like that format the most.

I like this idea.
but for it to work, it needs the publicity so that everyone will know about
it and be able to submit calls/contribute and be kept in the loop. my first
thought when I read this would be to bring it to livejournal since it's
pretty easy to create a community there but then I realized that one may
have to have an lj account so that's a bit of a downer.

do keep me posted if you're running this blog?

I think itś a marvelous idea! I only knows blogs that divulgue humour championships. a blog to submissions of compilations zines would be great to the ones who want to change expreiences with other scenes.
