This sounds pretty groovy, I think I'll join by the end of this week- My first zine has everything but a cover, and photocopies. =) Hope more people jump on board:: Zines are awesome!

Ok, I've sent my info. I've been wanting to start a Zine for ages, I've even done some mini-zines, but I've never done anything with them. This is going to be the swap to inspire me!

I am super excited about this swap. Anyone have any preferences on topic of the zines? I haven't started mine yet and was wondering what might be popular? Anyone know what they are going to do their zine on yet?

Mine is probably going to be an outlet for my original fiction, thoughts and doodles, either Fairytale inspired or more general, probably to do with film. I have content for both, it just depends on what takes my fancy when I start putting it together, as well as the demographic of the swap members, some of my fiction has adult themes', so I was going to wait a bit and see who was swapping and what they might be offeneded by. But then I guess thats all part of the self publishing aspect of zines, that you can present ideas that might shock people in a normal setting (like a magazine, newspaper or academic journal). But I promise not to deliberately offend peaple!

I need to get rid of stuff!! i have soap kits, bath salt kits, lip balm kits, plain canvas tote bags, fabric paints, and other stuff i'm trying to clean out. It'd be cool to swap for yarn, but i'll give it away FREE! PM me if you're interested!!!
