Edited: New Send by Date is March 13, 2010

Edited: Send by Date Extended. I am going to change the send by date..so maybe your zine could include your thoughts and feelings on how you spent this Valentine's day.

We all have had an affair with love. Some of those loves broke our hearts, others we let slip away, some we just threw away and wish we hadn't or may one day all the stars were aligned and you had that chance meeting and found your soulmate.

Whatever your stories are we want to read them, whether they are about heartbreak or triumph, it's a perzine, tell YOUR story.

Your zine could include stories, poems, sayings, collaging and pictures, make it personal.


Partners: 5


Size: NO mini zines. Can be Half or Fourth size. Mine will be 1/2 size with 12 pages and a cover, so any combination of that would be fine. Can be typed on computer or the cut and paste method, whatever suits your fancy.

Ratings: 4.9 All threes must be explained, and no ones. I reserve the right to ban swappers at my discretion.

Mininum size: 3 sheets of 8.5" x 11" paper, folded to be a 1/2 or 1/4 size zine plus a cover.

Swap Image: My great Aunt and Uncle, they were true sweethearts!

I'll rejoin once I get rated three times.

If we do not get enough swappers I will have to cancel this swap..it would not be too much fun to put alot of work into a zine to only get 3 copies in return..so if we don't get enough swappers to at least get 5 copies back, I will cancel swap, hope you understand.

I think you will get enough. Lots don't join till the last day. I just clicked join after seeing your message so you know people are watching and want to do this swap. Don't cancel it! It'll be fab!

i'm working on mine right now. having so much fun! i love this one.

Why has the date been changed in the last 24 hours and why have you not messaged us to tell us? Did you just need more time yourself? It's really not fair on everyone else who is working to meet the deadline.

tangledthreads 02/16/2010 #

Secretterrabite: Thank you for your concerns. In review of the swappers list no one has sent with only 11 day until deadline, in my past experience in hosting zines, that is an indication the swappers need more time. So in consideration of all the swappers, I decided to extend the deadline. I am sorry if this is upsetting to you. I will send everyone an email tonight to explain to them your concerns regarding the unfairness of my extention and see if its ok to rollback the date.

After giving this alot of thought today and conversing with other participants, I am changing the mail by date to March 13, 2010. Thanks!

I am not upset, I was just concerned that the date was changed but you hadn't notified the swappers in the group so no-one knew they had extra time. Sorry if I came across the wrong way. Every zine swap I have been in, no-one has sent till the last couple of days but I have never sent late on any swap, I kind of plan my time to get to the deadline with a couple of days spare. I hope there are no hard feelings tangledthreads, I honestly didn't mean to sound brutish about it!

Wish I had known about this swap, I would have loved to have joined it!

I am so excited about your zines after receiving my first one..it was great! I didn't get to the local office supplies store this weekend to get mine printed but since we have a few more days..I can get them printed this week!

Hi everyone! I've already read a couple of yours and I look forward to the rest. Just a quick message to let you know that mine was sent a bit late since I missed getting to the post office on time Saturday (they close at 12p here), but they are on their way!
