new zine! [04 Nov 2009|06:13pm]

Photobucket

Beautiful Mess #2 is out! This issue features moving away from Calgary and trying to find myself in Montreal, dealing with an identity crisis and venting my frustrations from working in the beauty industry. I talk about learning to love myself after being self destructive for most of my life and looking back on past work, as well as a large piece about my adventure to Burning Man. There is an obituary for my favourite snail, a description of how snakes eat, and a sexy centerfold, plus more!

half size, 40 pages
$3 plus shipping or select trades

Ziney resources in Vancouver [24 Oct 2009|01:02pm]

kellissima
Hello all,

This is rather late notice, but I'm teaching a zine workshop on Monday, and I thought I should make sure I don't leave out any major resources here in Vancouver. I've got VPL's collection, the lowercase reading room, Spartacus, the Purple Thistle...anything glaring I'm missing?

Cheers,
Kelly

call for submissions [x-posted] [29 Sep 2009|04:32pm]

bittirsweet
Hey everyone,

I'm going to be putting together a zine in the next few months about the affects of sexism on men. My idea of feminism revolves around duality and equality and you can't fix one side without looking at the other, and I feel this is something that is very poorly represented in the feminist community, and outside it. There is as strong an influence on men to dress/act/think a certain way as much as there is on women and people seem to forget this and blame the men themselves for their behaviour, which is often a product of their own oppression. In order to break this pattern, I feel there needs to be an increase of awareness and discussion and I'd like to facilitate that in my own way with the creation of this zine. I want to look at what exactly these stereotypes and influences are, how they affect men, and what can be/is being done to combat it.

I would prefer submissions from male-identified people primarily, but I will be accepting some submissions from females as well, provided it's relevant and presents a poignant view of the subject.
As for your actual submissions, I'm looking for essays, articles, poetry, firsthand accounts, art, photos...whatever you've got, really, that will fit into a zine. There are no limits to length, but please try to be as specific as possible. I'd like to get right into the meat of this. As well, please include whether you'd like to be credited or if you'd prefer to remain anonymous. If you'd like credit, please include your Name/pseudonym, the zine[s] you write, contact info [preferably email], and your website if you have one.

I can't guarantee everything will make it in, depending on how much I get and the quality of said material, but I'll do my best! Everyone who's material is included will receive a copy of the zine upon its completion.

As well, I'm also going to be conducting a series of interviews with male-identified people to discuss their personal experiences and views on the subject. If you are interested in being interviewed, please send me a message!

Submissions deadline is loosely the end of November.

As well, if you have any questions or comments about the project, please don't hesitate to approach me!

Finally. Fucking. Finished. [16 Jul 2009|03:11am]

bittirsweet

"Because where we are we won't always be & shit man, that could be me - getting hurt, hurting someone, getting all crashed down upon - burning holes in butterfly's wings while wishing, just wishing for other things"


It's been three years in the making, but it's finally done! Sleeps With Ghosts #1 is a collection of thoughts, images, and poems spanning my life since 2006, shortly after returning from Kenya. It deals with trying to get out there in the world and figuring out how to make life live-able, falling down and getting back up again. I like a full-looking zine, so as a result my zines are usually full to the brim of text and pictures, and this is no exception.

This zine is $3+S&H or trade
The first printing is about halfway gone already, but there will be more, so please email me if interested! sleepswthghosts[at]yahoo[dot]ca

BRUCE SPRINGSTZINE 1: WEEKEND IN THE VOID takes place in Toronto, on Canzine weekend last October. I flew in from Vancouver, and had exactly 36 hours from touchdown to takeoff again. What follows is a detailed report on that day and a half of sleep deprivation, self-abuse and small pressery. Sometimes vague and deranged, sometimes lucidly hung over, this is an honest report, complete with hand written field notes, of what happens when a writer (Joey Comeau) and a publisher (myself) attempt to stay up for 36 hours, fueled mainly on energy drinks, little orange pills, and pharmaceutical grade tequila.

Hello!

I am offering up a beautiful new zine, my very first effort: Creatures of Water and Clay (#1). It features art and writing from all sorts of terribly talented people, mostly based in Halifax (at my school) but some not. PWYC to cover photocopying costs for about 24 pages of half-size, or trade for your zine.

Email jacqueline dot vincent at gmail for more details and to trade addresses, or comment here.

Hi there,

I'm new to this community, and only recently (in the past week) started this amazing business of zine-making. I'm now deeply in love with it and the myriad possibilities of the photocopier.

I'm selling 4 of my zines on my etsy. They're all mini 8-page zines fully illustrated, written and lovingly put together by yours truly.

we all know what happens from 1-10 when we count crows, but what comes after?
HILARITY, that's what.
this 44 page quarter zine contains over 800 hand drawn crows in situations that could only come from the mind of reqbat, plus rhymes to make you giggle.
