Sounds great but my "summer" vacation isn't until Sept. :(

hmmm ... How about what you did on your last summer vacation? OR What you are looking forward to doing on your upcoming summer vacation. As long as your zine's theme is related to summer vacation!

Can I make it up? I was thinking of making a holiday zombie zine.

Well... this zine is about "summer vacation" stuff, so I think it should stick to that topic.

I will be hosting other themed zines in the coming months related to Halloween, Xmas, etc... Maybe even an open themed zine. I think the holiday zombies would fit better in one of those swaps. (I would love to receive a holiday zombie zine, just not in the summer vacation swap.)

Vacation themed zines are en route to my partners in the U.S., U.K. and Germany.
