International Zine Month 2017 Day 16: Stock the Shelves

Send your zine to a distro for consideration

Hello, zine friends! It’s a chilly Sunday here in my local corner of Oz, and I’m a bit jealous of my northern hemisphere friends enjoying summer. But you didn’t come here to read about the weather. It’s time for today’s International Zine Month activity!

Distros are a very important part of the zine world, helping people get their zines out to the world and likewise helping zine fans find zines they might otherwise not come across. One thing that helps them to keep going is to get fresh, new, and different zines in.

My biggest tip when it comes to submitting your zine to a distro (or submitting anything to anyone accepting submissions) is to read their preferences. It can save a lot of time and confusion all around. 🙂

I’m afraid I have to duck out with this one thanks to a zine launch with plenty of contributor copies going out and saving for a house move. Very exciting stuff, I know.

Happy zine submitting!

Calling Zine Makers, Libraries, Distros, And the Like

I’m at the very beginning stages of working on a new zine project. As part of this, I would like to include A5/A6 spaces (maybe even A7, if that works for you) that feature things like:

*Zines that have a rolling call for submissions (even if your zine changes theme/topic from issue to issue, an overarching ‘flier’ for the whole series would be awesome)
*Zine distros – whether you want to say ‘check out my distro’, are looking for zines to sell in your distro, or both!
*Zine libraries – again, whether it’s a ‘check us out’, ‘looking for zine donations’, or both, I’d love to see it
*Zine people who want to be included in an ‘open to trades’ section. I’m thinking name, preferred contact (or your mailing addy, if that’s the way you roll), and a few likes/dislikes.

The key thing here is that things be ‘undated’ (hence sharing a zine series rather than one specific call for submissions) so things aren’t out of date before I get the chance to create the thing.

Ideally, I’d like things to be images with text on them because of the limited space involved (with the exception of the trades section, which will be text only). But I want to be flexible, too. This project is really in its early days, so I’m still figuring a lot out.

If you want to get involved straight away (please do!) then you can shoot me an email (theauthor at inkyblots.com)
