Welcome all Zinesters and Zinephiles
This page is open to anyone involved in zine-making and distribution with ties to Noisebridge.
ZinesFromOuterSpace, a discussion group for zinester-hackers, is now meeting weekly, Thursdays at 20:00/8pm at Noisebridge! Come help us plan the next issue of ZiP and discuss related projects. Introduce one of your own!
Below is info and images for ZiP, a Noisebridge-inspired Zine in Progress conceived in December, 2011.
We are seeking fiscal sponsorship from Noisebridge. Why? Non-profit status to receive discounts for printing and tax deductible donations.
We request an account with earmarked donations to be dispensed to the zine. The zine will report finances once a month the first Tuesday of the month. Zine expenditures will be open to the public on our website.

ZiP: Zine in Progress aka ZiP MegaZine is a hacker-friendly, fully autonomated, frequently festive, quasi-quarterly MegaZine, created and edited by Tony Longshanks LeTigre and the mysterious personage known as The Whimsical Wizard of ZiP (aka Whimzy).
ZiP launched its first issue, 7DC, on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, 2012, with a Zine Release Microparty at Noisebridge called My Noisy Valentine
ZiP chapter 2, "Anarchy Enema," was released in late April, 2012, and is currently on the shelves at a number of venerable Mission-District indie bookstores & distros, including Needles & Pens, Modern Times and Dog-Eared Books.
ZiP chapter 3, "The Inward Spiral," is being put together at the time of this writing for a projected July 15th, 2012 release. Submissions will be accepted through Sunday, July 1st. New contributors welcome! Cover image of ZiP03:
