-
 
-
A zine is a self published, non-profit, work created by all sorts of folks. Zines can be about anything and range from personal zines, political zines, to cooking zines! We think its important to support local music, zines, and artists. Most zines (including ours) make no-or very little money (all of which goes back into printing costs) and your support can help keep your local zine alive!

-
Want to support our zine or your local zine but dont have anything to submit? Thats okay! We really need donations and are always looking for people on our street team! Write the email above (girlnamedsam@gmail.com) for more information.
