We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

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 even to promote your own zine!

My idea is to start this particular zine as a free one to send out to as many people as possible to get more people to submit their own ads.

 

So, seriously, tell me what you think about this.

Thanks.

Makes total sense, thanks!

I'm thinking maybe at most a 1/4 sized piece of standard paper. Maybe average about 1/8? Does that make any sense?

Great idea!  What size can the ads be?  Is there a limit on size or word count?  Trying to figure out what to put in my ad.

I have heard a lot about Factsheet Five, but I never got to read any.

Also, Not a problem, I like to share :-)

Chris- I waited quite awhile to get my first issue for the subscription. I actually bought a back issue before the current one showed up to my mailbox. I had actually forgotten that I sent out for the $10 3 Issue subscription by the time the first one showed up. I guess all I can tell you is be patient and it'll show up. Or if you're super anxious to flip through one I'll send you one of the my own Zine World back issues if you send me your address.

James- I agree with you on the email thing. I think I will start compiling the Zine Classifieds. I want this to be more of a zine community project than just me collecting and reprinting, but I will start any way I can.

 

If you, anyone your know, or someone that may be interested wants to send anything in for a classified ad, ad for a zine you made, submission call, or pen pal invitation, you can send it to:

Or of course you could message me on here.

I think it's a great idea.  I've been  doing a similar project for the last few years, but very sporadically, and not as organized as I'd like it to be.  I'd definitely place an ad in your zine and pay for an issue.  Of course I'd prefer physical addresses.  I generally avoid "e-mail me's", unless it sounds especially good.
