Lisa Y. Mendez of Uno Foto zine needs donations–yours or any zines you don’t read so much anymore–to get her mobile library up and running. As she writes,
…There’s mobile food trucks, mobile fashion trucks, mobile tattoo trucks (just saw one last week!)
So, I decided I want a Mobile Zine Library! I don’t have a truck, but being mobile doesn’t require a big ol’ truck.
Anyhow, I need some help starting it. I’ve got a fair amount of zines now, but I’d love to have an even greater variety to lug around and share.
I plan on having the first Mobile Zine Library “event” near the end of November (location TBA in San Diego), but I will also be visiting my hometown of El Paso, TX and plan on sharing the zine love there too.
Feel free to email me with more questions!
What a great way to get some new zines! I hope to see this zinemobile on the streets between San Diego and El Paso soon.

The IE Zine Fest is tomorrow, and if you’re going to be there, be sure to catch their reading, hosted by Angela of Zineworks. Readers will include LA-based cartoonist/photographer Tori Holder, Sarah Bitely (“Pimpkillah“), Rebecca Cruz, illustrator/sequetial artist Yumi Sakugawa, poet Ariel Zitny, Jen Venegas (“She’s Not A Morning Person“), and Brodie Foster Hubbard (“Fair Dig“). Readings are my favorite way to find new zines–check it out!
Every year, LA Zine Fest puts out a comp zine from your submissions about anything and everything L.A.-related. This year, we’d like to focus on THE NEW.
Progress and change are constants, especially in this town, so we’re sure you’ve got plenty to talk about. What’s something on your To Do In L.A. list that you’ve recently crossed off? Do you want to tell us about an amazing business/organization/event you know of that’s just opened up? Remember, we don’t just want to read about your discoveries, we’d love to see them, too; we are always looking for submissions of photography, comics and illustrations!
We’ll be accepting submissions until January 1, 2014, so you’re stuck in a rut, you’ve got time and a reason to break out of it.
Submission details: Please keep text submissions under 800 words. Images may be any size but may be resized to best fit a half-page print zine. Keep in mind that the final zine will be black and white. Submissions may be subject to a review process; depending on how many submissions we get, it’s possible we will not be able to accept all submissions for the final printed version.
All submissions should be emailed to email@example.com by January 1, 2014. Please include “LAZF Guide” in the subject line!
One week until the second annual IE Zine Quest in Redlands. We did a write-up of our trip to last year’s event, but you should keep current by checking out their tumblr for exhibitor profiles and updates on events at the Quest.
The following tablers and more will be in attendance!
IE Zine Quest
113 N. 5th Street
Redlands, CA 92373

Or make one to charm and delight. We don’t judge. We merely provide you with the tools to make a unique zine that is also, impossibly, a mask. How, you ask? We are witches.
We hope to see you there!
Thank you to all who helped us raise over $3,000 in 30 days. You made us feel like this inside.
We never cease to be amazed at how many people want to see this event take place. We’re excited to make this year the best Zine Fest yet!
And while we have your attention, remember we are accepting applications until the end of Friday, October 18 (down to 11:59:59 pm on Friday night). That’s tomorrow!! Get yours in today.
