Re: [denverzinelibrary] zinesters in Denver
- Hey Misun-
Thanks for getting in touch with us!
Jamez and I moved from Washington DC about 3 weeks ago
and have been trying to get a feeling of what the zine
scene is like here. We don't want to be coming in and
stepping on people's toes with our ideas. For, now, it
seems that there is interest in a zine library and one
doesn't exist yet. We've both gone through the
volunteer training at Breakdown (I'm actually here
now), and we've talked to a bunch of people about the
zine library idea on Monday night at the cut and paste
zine tour. We met someone who says she's working with
Paul from Double Entendre on maybe starting a library-
so, we'll have to check in with him to see what
they're thinking. Thanks for those suggestions. It's
been great getting ideas from folks and knowing that
some of the time, it seems we're looking in the right
I've been cataloging zines for a while now (over 750
done) and I still have a bunch more. I remember seeing
a few King Cat Comics in there, but I'm not sure if
I've seen any Tearjerker. I wonder if you'd be up for
Currently, I have 3 zines:
Do As I Say, Not As I Do: Family Lessons to Unlearn is
about bringing a transgender boyfriend home to meet my
family over Thanksgiving
Bodily Fluids #1 is about a somewhat traumatic
experience of peeing myself in kindergarten
These Hands Can... was put together at my summer camp-
I read some campers and counselors a story called
these hands and afterwards had each person write or
draw on a quarter sheet what their hands can do.
Jamez (who writes as Vermicious Knid) has been making
zines for years: Sex, Death and Ronald McDonald; Burn
in Hell, Buddy; Limited Delivery Area; Great Plastic
Elevator (an audiozine) and more...
Do have any interest in a zine library, any
suggestions, ideas, etc? We'd love to hear what you
Have a great day,
