Now Accepting Submissions for My New Distro
I've been making zines since I was in the 8th grade, and I spent time distroing zines for almost 3 years.
I used to operate my distro under other names including Hello Saturday, and This Saturday Night, I had to stop distroing due to college, but now I have more free time to devote to a distro so I'm going to open one!
I'm looking for zines of all kinds, including music, pesonal, resource, DIY, and anything else! I'd really would love to get more music and per zines though.
Also if you have stickers, patches, books, or music, I'd love to add those to the distro too!
If you are interested you can mail your zine to:
4535 S Lockwood Ridge Rd
Sarasota, FL 34231
If you'd like to submit an electronic copy you can email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I can do consignment or wholesale, whichever is easiest for you!

Queerios: A Radical Queer Coloring and Activity Book
This will be the kind of activity book I never got (but always wanted) in my early teens. I'd like to put together a coloring and activity book highlighting people who were groundbreaking to you, personally. Harvey Milk and Oscar Wilde will always have a place carved out for them. This is about exploring people who did more than admit their same-sex attraction to the rest of the world. How about what Leslie Feinberg and Kate Borenstein did for trans visability and challenging gender norms? Or how James baldwin and Audre Lorde made queer people challenge racism within the GLBT community. And, just so we're clear? You don't have to identify as queer/trans to have a hero who does.
Priority will be given to activities like dot-to-dots, paper dolls, and word searches, but coloring pages with biographies are great as well. The deadline for this is March 1st so I can have it put together by mid-to-late march, and out in the world by April. And of course, if you know someone who is interested, please feel free to pass this on to them, or repost widely.
Please send pdfs of high resolution jpegs to email@example.com

Call for Submissions - Once Upon A Distro
I've been making zines since I was 15 - more than
half of my life. At various points, zines have been a way for me to
connect to communities that I didn't have access to, as well as being an
important place for me to write about the stuff going on in my life.
I've always written zines. I've always read zines. I've always wanted
to do more. So, now I am. Once Upon a Distro is open for submissions
starting now, and will be open for purchases and things starting in
January of 2012.
What I'm looking for right now are personal zines, particularly those
by women, people of color, and GLBTQ folks. I'm not opposed to spoken
word titles and crafts, but those will not be my priority.
Please feel free to mail your zine for submission to:
201 W. Evergreen Ave #1012,
Philadelphia, PA 19118
or email with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Sorry for all the cross posts!)

is back in business, with new zines in stock! Check them out:SHOW AND TELL #5

There are also how-to articles on how to make a one-page mini-zine using both sides of the paper, and how to make prints using modge podge, magazines, and tape! This is such a fun, spontaneous zine, which can make you laugh one minute and cry the next. Half-size, 36 pages.( moreCollapse )
Also, in honor of International Zine Month
, all orders $20 or over in the month of July will receive a free zine! Just write your preferred free zine in the comments section on Paypal, or on paper, if postal mail is the way you roll.

I'd love to have you as a guest.

Winemaking Zine - call for contributions!
I am putting together a zine called "Come Wine With Me" and would like your input!
I want the zine to be a celebration of winemaking and a source of inspiration for winemakers! (And when I say wine I also mean other homemade alcohols like mead, beer, cider and sloe gin. I want the zine to be about all these things!) I know there are already countless books on "how to" books for making your own alcohol, so the sort of thing I was thinking could go in this zine are:
- your favourite recipe(s)
- wine-related stories and anecdotes
- your winemaking tips
- recommended reading
- anything else you think would be suitable!
The finished zine will be a5 sized UK sizing (I think that's half size in US sizing), and as this is a not-for-profit project copies will be sold to cover costs. The deadline for submissions is the 1st August 2010, so let me know if you want to get involved: email@example.com
(I am crossposting this to the various LJ zine communities I am part of, so sorry if you see this multiple times.)

black light diner distro, march 2010 update
Hey everyone! Just a little heads-up about the new zines available at Black Light Diner Distro
!HIGH ON BURNING PHOTOGRAPHS #5/ASYLUM #1
(Pittsburgh, PA/Santa Clarita, CA)
This split between Ocean and her penpal Matt, who is incarcerated. Meeting through a prisoner book program, they compiled this zine without ever having met, and the result is a zine on a diverse number of topics. In her articles, Ocean relates an attempt by her boss to create a Jackson Pollock painting, revisits 1997, and provides haiku book reviews. Matt's contributions tend toward the philosophical, as he questions what it means for something to be counterfeit, opines on philosophical zombies, and writes a "love letter" to Folsom Prison. I haven't read very many zines by prisoners, and this one was an eye-opener, providing just a glimmer of insight about what it is actually like to be incarcerated, and the many trials Matt will have to face even when "released."( more under cut!Collapse )
Thanks for reading!

motor city kitty #14 is all done! yay!
32 pages, quarter-sized. $1 US/$2 international or trade (though i warn: i admittedly take awhile to send trades out. still, i love to read new things and have been getting better about this bad habit as of late, i think? i hope!)
this issue is slightly different from the past three. i'm lovingly referring to it as the "keep it posi" issue. it's all about my local punk community & bike scene, as well as teaching poetry to 4th & 7th graders, and trying to have hope/faith in a world that tells me not to.
comment here or email me at email@example.com if you'd like a copy!

My sweetie and I are working on two new zines. The first, as yet unnamed, has to do with all things (pet) rat-related. We're looking for stories, comics, art, photos, rat-related items to review (which translates into nearly FREE advertising), the whole shebang!
We are also seeking contributions for 'Roommate Wanted' ~ a zine all about the horrors of living with crazy, abusive and/or gross roommates. AJ and I have plenty of our own stories, but adding yours will make it more interesting! Accepting all sorts of submissions; with stories, you can just send text or you can also do your own layout.
Please comment or email [xjettx-at-gmail.com] if interested. ^.^X-Posted to my LJ. Please feel free to share this info with anyone you think may be interested. Current Mood: awake
