I've been making zines since I was 15 - more than half of my life. At various points, zines have been a way for me to connect to communities that I didn't have access to, as well as being an important place for me to write about the stuff going on in my life.
I've always written zines. I've always read zines. I've always wanted to do more. So, now I am. Once Upon a Distro is open for submissions starting now, and will be open for purchases and things starting in January of 2012.
What I'm looking for right now are personal zines, particularly those by women, people of color, and GLBTQ folks. I'm not opposed to spoken word titles and crafts, but those will not be my priority.
Please feel free to mail your zine for submission to:
201 W. Evergreen Ave #1012,
Philadelphia, PA 19118
or email with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
