zinesters

Come round, all ye children, to hear the tales of yesteryear... this short documentary, Last Century Zinesters, shows us what it was like to create zines in the mid-80s and 90s in Brazil through interviews and letter correspondences with many zinesters of that time. Grab some popcorn and sit yourself down by your newfangled computer machine to watch the story unfold after the jump!

Ready for a break from reading that stats textbook? The Punks is Hippies blog scans DIY punk fanzines in and puts them up for your perusal. They specialize in "out of print, hard to find, and in some cases unique, rare or exceedingly expensive" zines that we would otherwise not have access too - so delve in and get lost in the amazingness that is Punks is Hippies!

Wow, there's a lot of zine events coming up, including one in New York City September 24-25!

Cindy Crabb has been writing the influential, internationally distributed, autobiographical-feminist zine Doris since the early 90’s. Join us in celebrating her new book “The Encyclopedia of Doris,” which brings together the last 10 years of Doris zines with a ton of new writing at Bluestockings Bookstore, Sunday, September 25 at 7:00.

The Olneyville Library in Providence, Rhode Island, is trying to expand its local comics/art books/zine collection, so that the public can have access to these rare local gems.

We are in the process of compiling the 5th (FIFTH!) Issue of Not Your Mother's Meatloaf, Sex Education Comic Book Project. This Issue's theme is AGE.

Dear Friends,

Some of you remember that I used to write a zine called Suburban Blight, in which readers were subjected to political ramblings from yours truly. Well, here we are, 4 years since my last issue, and I’ve decided to return from my hiatus!

I know what you’re thinking – finally, reason to live again! Yes, my loyal fans, the time has come. You’ve weathered bloody wars, worldwide economic collapse, and three seasons of Jersey Shore. Surely, you deserve something nice.

That said, I would love to include contributions from YOU, my smart and sassy friends. Click "more" to see submission guidelines, which are quite lax. You’ll notice there is no deadline. I’m just getting started on this and really have no idea when it will be ready. If you’re interested in submitting get in touch with me and we’ll go from there.

Sincerely,

Steph
