Write For Us!

NB: Spill the Zines is currently closed on long-term hiatus.

Spill the Zines is looking to expand and feature more articles alongside its reviews and news posts, and we're looking for people to write for us!  If you're a writer that's passionate about zine culture, we want to hear from you!

Some articles we'd be interested in include:

  • Zine Fest reviews
  • Zines as educational tools
  • Zines as an alternative media
  • Favourite zine series
  • Tips on zine-making and writing for zines
  • Layout ideas
  • Zine do's and don'ts
  • Reviews of books about zines/zine anthologies
  • Zines & activism
  • Zines & self-expression
  • Friendships and the zine scene

We're pretty flexible with our writers; you can submit as much or as little as you want, whether that's a one-off article, something you've already written elsewhere, or part of a longer series. 

What you'll get out of it:
  • Writing experience: a valuable addition to a portfolio or CV if you're interested in pursing a career in journalism/media. 
  • An audienceSpill the Zines currently averages 1000 readers per month! If you decide to become a regular writer, a link to your personal blog/website will go in our sidebar, thus increasing traffic for your own projects.
  • A chance to make a difference: We're the only zine blog dedicated to British zine culture and news, and we're getting bigger and better every month.
Interested? E-mail the editor Cath at spillthezinesuk@gmail.com with a bit about you (location, what zines you like to read, whether you write or contribute to zines) and a topic suggestion.  Look forward to hearing from you!
