We Make Zines & DIY Home Online Community


We Make Zines is an online community for zine makers and readers. Although there are many social networking sites out there, there is little that focuses on zines. We all have our facebooks or blogs, but those accounts are filled with friends from work, from the third grade, people who don't know what a zine is and some who probably don't care.

This space creates a place that focuses on the zines. I want this place to be less about personality and friends and more about the zines - what we produce and read.

You can create a profile, list your zineography, post images of zines, partake in the forums, find other zine writers, read about new releases, read reviews from your favorite zine writers and leave comments about the zine you just read on the actual zinesters profile.

You can modify your page how you want. You just move the components around on your page to make them how you want them.

Use this space to connect, report, review and tell us about new stuff. Do keep in mind, however, that posting about the same thing repeatedly will be considered spam and not accepted. Members who do this will be banned.

Almost all of the content in this site is open to the public. You can read it all without needing to create a profile. Profiles that have been inactive for over a year may be deleted.

Welcome, New Member

Unfortunately we need to set up some guidelines here for the discussions.  I am not someone who wants to censor people, however, WMZ is a place for positive discussions about zines. It is not a place to pick fights, name call or put down people.

If you have a beef with someone emails them or go to their website and post, but do not fill up the discussions or comments with hateful words.

From now on, the people on staff at WMZ (currently this is just me, but people may be added on in the future) reserve the right to delete a comment or thread or to ban a member for the following:

  • Any comments that are racist, sizeist, sexist or homophobic. This does not mean you cannot disagree with someone, you just cannot result to name-calling. This can get your comments or thread deleted.
  • Everyone here is at a different level, some are just starting out and some are in their 3rd or 4th decade of making zines. Please respect where each other is in their experience and do not make assumptions or condescend to each other.
  • If you do not fill out your page stating what you do in the way of zines and only contribute to WMZ with aggressive comments or repeated ads you can be banned without notice.
  • Name-calling is not tolerated. Comments and threads can be deleted and members can be banned because of this. Again, if you have a problem with someone emails them directly.
  • If you do not like a forum subject - do not post on it, If you do not like a member - do not engage with them. Taking the time to post that someone's zine sucks or that they are an asshole is not acceptable.
  • Stay on Topic. If you are responding to a thread, you are responding to that topic. As long as you do that and do that with respect then all should be good.
  • Keep in mind that you have chosen to be on We Make Zines and your conduct is a way to show your love and respect for zines, zine culture and zine makers and readers.

Thank you. I hope that we can all keep WMZ growing as the positive and zine happy place it is.
