Send Me Your Zines For Distro Consideration!

I’m on a distro-stocking frenzy at the moment and I want YOUR zines at Fight Boredom Distro. As you may know, I’m visiting the UK for six weeks in the fall and winter (itinerary-in-progress here), and part of my trip involves tabling at some zinefests (like the Leeds Zine Fair and Queer Zine Fest London, among others). I’ll have a backpack overstuffed with zines, and I wanna bring a whole lot more with me.

So, here’s the deal. I want my website to be entirely up-to-date in early-October. If you want your zine to be listed online and available during my travels overseas, you need to mail me a consideration copy RIGHT NOW. Y’all know that I’m into perzines written by queers, anarchists, feminists (and remember: my feminism will be intersectional or it will be bullshit). I like diary comics and thoughtful accounts of things like small towns, community-building, livin’ on the cheap. I’d also like to stock more zines on sex work, sobriety, and general hopeful tales of creating yr dream life. Also, more zines from Canada and Québec please! If you’ve got a zine that you think fits well with the distro catalogue, please send a consideration copy my way, along with yr contact info and wholesale/retail prices (wholesale is generally 50% of retail, ie: I will buy ten copies of your zine at $1.00 each and sell them for $2.00 each, with all money going straight back into the distro).

I’m seriously really excited right now. I just ordered a bunch of new stock this afternoon and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.

And please tell me in the comments: What have you been reading lately? What would you like to see at Fight Boredom Distro?

  1. Hiya, I sent you a zine a few weeks ago, but it’s probably still in the post. :) I’d like to second Elderflower Tea too. It’s a lovely, peaceful, thoughtful zine. ^___^

    • I got it! I might fall asleep before I send anymore emails tonight, but I’ll be in touch with you real, real soon.

      Elderflower Tea is great! Though it wouldn’t make sense to stock it right now ‘coz I’ll be hangin’ with the author in person when I get to England. ;)

  2. I sent off a zine a while back but my return address won’t accept mail anymore and I’ve had a lot of mail not getting to it’s destination.. I hope it gets to you! I can’t wait to see the new stock.

  3. Not a zine but, I just finished reading the book “will there really be a morning?”, an autobiographical account of the life of Frances Farmer. It’s incredible but sad. Check it out if you havn’t read it.
