Howdy, I've made a really crappy zine that I would happily mail out to anyone interested!

Hi, I like zines but havent had any for years. Im starting to think on making some of my own soon.

I'd love to swap zines with folks!

I publish "Another Crappy Mini-Zine", which is usually a 1 page folded mini-zine, and have issues 1-10 available right now.  

If you'd like to trade zines with me, please contact me to swap addresses and let me know which ones you'd like from pictures of the covers / insides.  We could also do this electronically by sharing PDFs to avoid postage costs for anyone who prefers that method.

If anyone wants to join, I'm also interested in forming a "Round Robin Zine Exchange".  This would allow us to share mini-zines so that we're all getting to read more of them and so that the mini-zines are reaching more readers without having to be printed as many times to reach those readers.   

My mother used to send what she called "Round Robin" letters to relatives when I was young.  It was a way for a few people who knew each other to stay in touch without re-writing the same news about their lives in individual letters to everyone and it also saved postage. 

To form a "Round Robin Zine Exchange" we would make a list of 3-5 people who want to participate.  The first person puts a mini zine (their own work or one they've finished reading and want to share) in an envelope and sends it to the second person on the list.  The second person gets it, reads it, adds a mini-zine of their own to an envelope and sends both of them to the third person.  The third person reads both mini-zines, adds one of their own and sends all three on to the fourth person.  If the 3rd person is the last person in the "round robin" they send all three mini-zines to the first person on the list.  When the zines arrive in the mail of the first person on the list, that person removes the zine they originally sent (because now everyone has been able to read it), reads the zines in the envelope, puts a new zine in and sends all of them along to the second person.

I am a bookseller and though I sell online-only now, my partner and I had a retail store from 1993-2001 and zines were one of our specialties.  We also made our own zine, Pistil Prose.  This reprint of the "Retail Hell" issue was made last year on the 25th anniversary of Pistil Books.  If you would like to do a zine exchange, please send me yours, and I will send you this zine.

I just moved apartments and fully appreciated once again how many zines I've collected over the years from zine fairs and swaps. It struck me that they are rather sad all sitting in a box and it would be better to share them by sending them out to people. If you would like to be sent a zine (they're mostly all mini-zines of the one folded page variety) please reach out and I will send one your way!
