Zines!

Please note: these are very much do-it-yourself/amateur booklets. Apparently, the zines of today are mostly done with design programs and such, but I'm a teen of the '90s, so I'm all about the old school. The information inside has been compiled and written by a professional, however!

Buy a Zine and Willow Will Release it Into the Wild!


This is an option for people who would like to sponsor the releasing of a zine into the wild but who do not have the time or inclination to do it themselves. (I know most people are stretched for time and energy these days.) You can purchase a zine along with the basic postage cost, and I will send that little zine on its way to an effective landing spot. You can select the location where you would like the zine to be sent, or you can leave it up to me. You can also add a bumper sticker to the Stop GM Alfalfa zine, if you're feelin' it. 

If interested, please contact me at willowsweb [at] hushmail.com.

Some possibilities for sponsoring the release of a zine:

- sending the zine to a media outlet, a politician, a public figure, a friend, a journalism school, a community group, an activist group, etc.

- donation of a zine to a 'zine library: this gets the zine out into the zine-reading public and ensures that it is available to people to read for free

- donation of a zine to an anarchist/community bookstore that sells zines: this provides a little cash for the bookstore - many of which are struggling to survive - when the zine sells and also gets the zine out into the public

- distributing it in some public place at random: in a park, at a bus shelter, at a Farmers Market. This adds the exciting element of chance! Who knows who might come across it?

- or come up with your own idea for distribution

Hi Willow,

How do I purchase a zine?

Hi, AstroFix...

You can email me with the zine title you would like, and I can send a PayPal invoice for the cost + shipping out to you.

Or you can purchase through the Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/WillowsWebAstrology?ref=seller-platform-mcnav

Thanks!
