Help a zinester out? [Sep. 19th, 2009|08:53 am]
portland zinesters

Hey! I'm involved with a teeny collective that's opening a worker-owned bookstore (and zinestore) and community center in Portland next year. To move us a little closer to our fundraising goal, we launched a mini donation drive on this website called Kickstarter.

Please check it out, and please please please drop us a few bucks. We'd infinitely appreciate it, and will promptly pay you back with free coffee and zines when our doors open next year. <3.

portland zinesters


All Things Ordinary #1 is out now! This is a personal zine about the last month i spent in Buffalo, NY (where i have lived all 27 years of my life) before i moved to Portland, OR (where i've been living for the past 4 months). It mostly consists of reflections on my time in Buffalo, thoughts about what lies ahead of me in Portland (i had never visited Portland before i moved here), and things that happened to me during my last month living in Buffalo. It is 24 pages and quarter sized.

  here are a couple sample pagesCollapse )

I love trading zines and would prefer that, but if you don't want to/can't trade it is $3.00ppd. My paypal address is derekneuland@gmail.com.

Peep no. 15 + Portland Zine Symposium! [Jul. 22nd, 2009|01:34 pm]
portland zinesters

Hello everyone!

Issue 15 is finally out! (better late than never...) As usual it contains a healthy dose of unexpectedly interesting information, recipes, and vintage clip art. This issue also features art by guest contributor Michael Jess.

This month you can get your very own copy of Peep no. 15 before it hits the stores at the Portland Zine Symposium happening this weekend! It runs from the 24th through the 26th and I will have a table on the 24th (Friday) and the 26th (Sunday). The symposium takes place on the second floor of the Smith Student Union on the Portland State University campus. There will also be workshops and other fun things going on. See the website for more details. I will also be selling older issues of Peep and a new 36 page zine (unrelated to Peep) about my moleskine notebook. 

If you will be in the Portland area this weekend please stop by and say hello!

After the symposium the new issue will be available in zine shops all over Portland. See the website for more details. If you don't live in Portland you can purchase it on etsy.com. I have also re-listed some old issues so go take a look!

Please direct any questions to peepthezine@gmail.com.

2009 IPRC Youth Zine Camp! [Jul. 6th, 2009|08:25 am]
portland zinesters


Hey folks, I thought I might pass this on if you know any young people or are a young person in Portland and might want to check this out.

Zine Camp 2009!
Each summer, the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) hosts a group of youngsters for five sessions of day camp. During camp, the participants learn the how’s and whys of self-publishing, the history of zine making and technical skills in print arts and independent publishing. Each camper will make their own zine, meet real live zinesters, participate in a zine reading and attend the 9th annual Portland Zine Symposium as tablers.

The camp is located downtown at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) in downtown Portland. There are two camps this year; Uncensored Youth and Zine Teens. The Teens group will meet from 12-4pm on Tuesdays and Fridays July 7th through the 24th, and the Youth will meet from 11-3 July 20th thru the 24th. The cost of camp is $125 with scholarships available.
Please contact A.M. O’Malley, IPRC Program Coordinator, at 503-827-0249 or iprcworkshops@gmail.com
