We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

All too often the punk scene seems to look down on athletics and sports of all kinds. I happen to regret a lot of my past shunning of sports and fitness for the sake of it not being "punk rock." In 2009 i started running and fell in love with it. (After I quit what could have been a pretty good softball career at age 15 because I was too cool.) It still feels somewhat awkward to have one foot in the running community and the other in the punk community.

I am looking to put together a zine writings/essays, art, comics, etc about the joys of participating in sports and/or getting fit. Why is it important to you? Why do you think that fitness is shunned in the punk scene? Can you be into organized sports and not be a "jock?" These are just some ideas to get you going, anything involving athleticism and being into the punk scene will be looked at!

I'd love to start putting together this zine in the new year, so submissions are open until December 31st.
