As part of my goal to create more zines, I want to read more zines.
I really believe some of the most useful radical political thinking, and activist strategy, appears in the pages of these self-published pamphlets.
I’ve decided to curate a regular list of new, interesting, or notable zines. I’m aiming to share this list twice a year (or more often if I get really ambitious). It will be similar to the zine list I curated for the Antifascist Month of Unity in October.
I’ll be publishing the list for everyone to access online, including here on Patreon. Whenever possible, I will reach out to the author of the zines and also get a few thoughts from them. I’ll also be printing out some copies and leaving them in interesting places in real life, if I can.
The first edition will be out in the spring.
My Gonzo Insiders ($10+ donors) will get copies of all the zines in the mail from me. I’ll also throw in some cool stickers.
I hope you’ll engage with me around this project. What have you been reading lately? What zines moved you recently or taught you something?
