I am in the process of getting another run of my zines published for the Portland Zine Symposium.
I moved out into Portland a few months ago. Back in my hometown, I had published about 150 copies of my first zine, EARN YOUR SLEEP, and passed them out to friends, strangers and friends of friends.
The financial strain was a bit difficult at first, but it was well worth it. I wanted everyone to read it. I feel very strongly about it, and I think that every reader can take something away from it.
Every issue is handmade and photocopied by me using the resources at my disposal. They are black and white and very simple, yet they still cost a decent amount to get printed.
Now that I am living in a bigger city that actually cares about independent publishing, I am looking to get another 100 copies printed up of issue #1, along with doing a first run of issue #2.
Every penny donated to the project will go directly back into future runs and issues.
I am hoping to get the amount I need via kickstarter so I am able to table at the Portland Zine Symposium. With a full 100+ copies as an arsenal, it would be a great DIY, word-of-mouth way to get my name and my zine out there.
Your time and money is greatly appreciated. Big love.
