Know any queer rural zines? x-post (if this doesn't belong/breaks rules, sorry; tell me&I'll delete)
Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but my friend Jenna (a.k.a. trashcan_chica
) needs some help:"does anyone know of any queer zines about living in rural areas or going to rural areas?
any help/pointing in the right direction would be amazing. i went through the whole Queer Zine Archive and couldn't really find anything.
p.s. i just got a wordpress site, sassyfrasscircus.com!"
Her (AIM) away message also says: "is looking for zines about/by members of radical queer ANTI-URBAN communities, so if you know of any..."
So please comment if you can help at all; thanks. :]

Boston Zine Fair!
If anyone lives in the Mass area, Papercut
is putting on the Boston Zine Fair Sept 20-21! I'm so excited, as its my first ever. Is anyone going, or better yet, tabling?
I want to get a table, but I'm worried because its my first time and I'll know close to no one. I thought it would be cool if someone from the North Mass area was interested, and in the same situation I am, we could go halves on the table and have someone there to talk to and goof around with. If anyone is interested, let me know. The deadline to sign up isn't til September, so we have time.
Oh! And! If someone wants to send me some zines or zine-wares, I can put them out with my stuff at the fair, to sell through my store/distro. Anything left over can either be sent back to you or put up in the distro. Let me know.
[btw, crossposted a bit. sorry]

Hi everyone! Just a quick Transcendent update:
Things have been quiet on the catalogue front. I'm working on adding titles to the zine shop, but aside from that, no new products are ready to hit the shelves.
I have a call for advertising, however. If you have a zine, distro, or online shop and wouldn't mind including a Transcendent flyer in with their orders, let me know so I can send you some! I'm more than happy to help advertise for others, as well. We could trade materials.
Email me at email@example.com
if you're interested.

Hi everyone! Just a quick update from Transcendent:
While I'm having computer troubles, the website will be down. But never fear, because the store is still open! All info has been moved to a custom LJ account, transcendent_lj
, and orders are still being accepted as per normal.
Web designing is one thing I just can't get a good grasp on, so LJ might be Transcendent's new home for a while. But, now you can friend us, and automatically get updated when items are added to the catalogue!
Coming soon: tee shirts, buttons, zines, and more. Keep your eyes open!
Thanks, and happy creating!
Simply Lark Press, a new indie media company and store, sells everything for all your indie/DIY needs (from artsy notebooks to cool clothes to quirky 'zines to underground CDs to unusual posters and more!) Our official launch date isn't until August 1st (that's when we plan to have a fully stocked inventory) but you can browse the merchandise we have up now. Just go to www.myspace.com/simplylarkpress. If something catches your fancy, place your order at firstname.lastname@example.org. We accept PayPal!

Hi everyone! I was just wondering if there were any zine- or DIY-ers in my area. I live in NH, near the Mass border. I'm about an hour and a half to two hours away from Boston. I know Papercut Zine Library is in my area (still haven't saved up the gas money to get down there yet) so I figured there must be others in the area! I'm curious to see how many of us there are in Northern Mass/Southern NH. I have these fuzzy dreams of starting some sort of fair or festival for indie and DIY stuff. Is there any interest? Any at all? :-)

I'm looking for peoples' opinions on using Etsy as a site to sell their things.
My website is going down for a while for maintenence but I want to be able to keep my stuff available for purchase, and since everyone else and their brother has an Etsy, I signed up there.
Problem is, I'm not sure I really like the site. I don't like that they charge for putting items up, and that they take a percentage of the sale. I remember seeing a site similar to Etsy but more for indie stuff, and they had a basic account that was 100% free, but limited the amount of items you could sell. By signing up for a better account, they charged a small fee but you got a lot more item slots. I don't remember what site this was though, and I don't know if it really was that much better.
So, what are peoples' opinions? Do you like Etsy? Is it really easy to use? If you have an etsy, how bad are the charges, really? Is it all worth it or should I just wait until the site comes back up?(I'm worried the site will be down for a while, which is why I wanted to set up the Etsy. I'd keep it up even after the site is fixed as a secondary site, and to have the rep on Etsy.)
Thanks guys, for any help you can give me now!

Wanna consign your zines?
I'm hosting an indie arts festival* in Arlington, VA (Washington, D.C. metropolitan area) on July 26. Part of the event will focus on the 'zine scene. If you are interested in consigning your 'zines, I can sell them on a basis of 30-70 (30% of the profits for you; 70% of the profits for me). If you are willing to donate your zines, that is certainly fine, too. Please contact me for more details! email@example.com
*If you are interested in attending the event, tell me and I'll give you the date/time & directions to the event. Everyone is welcome!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone! Its my first time posting here. I'd just like to announce the grand opening of my brand spanking new website and online store.
unique items to balance body and soul
Transcendent offers crafts and products that are handmade entirely by myself (mostly). Indie arts and crafts, spa products, supplies for the magically-inclined, even zines and other paper products.
We accept crafts and services from others as well, so if you would like your things featured with us, let us know!
My name's Angela, or DM - if you have any questions, I run Transcendent, and can help you out. Email me, or jump over to my journal.
Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you over on the site!
Always work to transcend boundaries, and don't forget to keep creating!

CALL FOR ART & WRITING SUBMISSIONS
Hey, everyone---one of my most recent creative projects involves compiling an anthology of art and writing that expresses the importance of clothes in our lives. This will be an actual book, not a 'zine, that I'm publishing through Lulu. From the serious to the quirky, I'm interested in what you have to say or show about your favorite pair of jeans, the dress you wore to prom, your "lucky" underwear, how you developed your personal style, etc. If you have something you can send to me, please do so ASAP. I don't want to set a deadline yet but the sooner you email your work to me, the more likely it will get in! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much! I look forward to reading/viewing your submissions. Please pass this on to your friends, too! I am aiming for 100 solid pieces to put in the book.
