I am also currently feeling inspired to make a zine. I can't write for toffee, mind, so it'll all be illustrations and that.

This is nice, thanks Dennis.

I've got a zine nearly ready (made it for Indietracks), which I can't find in me to print and put out there. It feels like an impossible task, even though I'd relish the secret printing at work. I have finally become that Hidden Cameras song. Is there a support group?

Just what I needed - as the Odd Box Zine is starting to kick itself into life at the moment.

These will be the 1st zines I have made since I did 2 small lostmusic ones back in 2007/2008.

I also made a zine back in the early 90s. It was called WIREMESH. I made 100 and sold them at gigs I went to. In Newcastle. I don't even have a copy of this one anymore.

I don't have a copy of any of my fanzines any more. I mean, they were mainly shite, but I wish I had copies of them.

I wish I was inspired to do a fanzine, but enjoy reading everyone else's

Just do it anyway, even it you don't think its that great. My zine was pretty bad, but I did it anyway for a while and made new friends and got a ton of international penpals out of it. I got at least one good review, people asking about it, orders, etc. So you never know.

Imagine a zine you would love to look at. Try to make that.
