Have a Joyous SOZD

After much excitement 1st October has arrived and the first annual Support Our ‘Zines Day is underway!

You can get more information on Support Our ‘Zines Day here: https://damiengwalter.wordpress.com/sozd/

So, what can you do to help support our ‘zines? Here are three simple suggestions for ways to support the ‘zines you love to read:

  1. List the ‘zines you have enjoyed this year, then subscribe / donate to as many as feel you can afford. You can be modest and keep your donations a secret, or you can show off and list your donations on your blog or elsewhere top help encourage others to show their support.
  2. Send a message to the editor(s) of the ‘zines you like thanking them for their work. Editors make ‘zines happen.
  3. Publicise your favourite ‘zines on your website, blog and elsewhere.

If you love reading good short fiction and you love good ‘zines, then take a few minutes out of your day and show your support.
