I know, I scoff at people too when they call their website an “e-zine”. But the truth is, it’s hard work to distribute those paper publications around the place; and you do want people to read them after you put all the effort in to writing them. So I’m uploading PDF copies of most of my zines (the ones I have pdf copies of) to here. Most of the ones about politics etc are made up of articles that appear elsewhere on this blog, but the music ones generally until now have appeared only in paper form.
Of course part of the power of zines is the simple format encourages the reader to think this writing thing isn’t so hard and to write their own. The truth is, the internet makes publication even easier than photocopied bits of paper ever did. So I hope that these even more can be an invitation for people with something to say to get writing and get it out there. Do try this at home!
