International Zine Month 2021 is Coming!

During conversations with friends I found myself saying “Wouldn’t it be rad if there was an International Zine Month?” Which led to the question as to who could make it official.

We are approaching that time of the year again! A month of extra special zine goodness, zine activities, and even more ways to connect with other zine makers.

Let’s get ready to zine on!

You can grab the activity list here at Stolen Sharpie Revolution or directly using this Dropbox link.

A Small Announcement

Hello everyone!

This isn’t a huge announcement by any means, but I wanted to let you know that I will be trying to get into the habit of adding a page count to my zine reviews. Why the announcement? To let you know that I will not be including covers in the page count.

I know, a small thing, but… I thought I’d let you know. Hehe.

Mini Zine March 2021

It’s Mini Zine March!

2021 marks the sixth year of declaring the entire month of March as the month for celebrating all the amazing and wonderful zines that fall under half size. From the one-page wonders to the chunky monkey quarter sized, mini-zines are amazing, fun, easy to stick in your pocket, and more.

There isn’t a prompts list as such, but if you’re celebrating in any way, please let me know! Share the links for what you’re up to.

Happy Mini-Zine March!

Detailed Information on Closure by Charissa:

“It’s with a heavy heart that I announce this news. I’m closing the storefront of Wasted Ink Zine Distro at The Hive.

I was given less than 24-hour notice that construction would be taking place in my store. I informed the owner I was disabled and needed more time to get help moving items. She assured me I would have a week to move my items but the construction took place the next day which resulted in paint splatter on my furniture, broken furniture items and decor items, and a thick film of dirt and grime on many of my zines. I’m still assessing the damage of my property and merchandise and will be contacting creators.

Additionally, I was told my rent would increase 25% and after nine months of financial difficulty due to the pandemic, that rent increase isn’t feasible for me.

I want to thank the community for providing such support in the last 5 years and please know this isn’t the end, just a change of plans for Wasted Ink. May we celebrate the wonderful art events, poetry readings, and conversations that took place inside our space at The Hive. Our online store will remain live and we will be looking for a new location when COVID-19 has eased next year.”
