International Zine Month 2017 Day 21: International Zine Library Day!

Visit your local zine library

I’m afraid I don’t have a local zine library I can just pop into – at least not one that I know of. I really love the idea of zine libraries and being able to borrow zines. I’d also love to send my whole ‘catalogue’ of zines to various libraries around the world.

Many zine libraries are borne out of personal zine collections that individuals wanted to share with the world. I know of a few that work as travelling or ‘pop up’ libraries that often introduce people to the world of zines – and that’s only part of why they are so important.

If you have a local zine library, do pop in to say hello, read a zine, and let your zine librarian(s) that they are doing an important job. ^_^

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that things be ‘undated’ (hence sharing a zine series rather than one specific call for submissions) so things aren’t out of date before I get the chance to create the thing.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