help keep the zine mobile moving!

Next week the zine mobile will shove off from the Midwest to Oakland/San Francisco, possibly stopping in Omaha, Denver, and Salt Lake City along the way… From the Bay we’ll head south, with stops in Los Angeles and San Diego… then east through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, and Florida… In March, up thru South and North Carolinas, aaanndd… a Spring Break tour is underway — possibly thru Canada!  Exciting!

Could you please help us get from here to there? As a free, traveling, self-contained entity, there are many ways to do so… right now what’s MOST needed is:

♥ MONEY FOR GAS!!!  If you have a few (or many) bucks to spare, pleeeease consider donating money or gas gift certificates to keep the zine mobile literally moving. We’re exploring options for transitioning from petrol to waste-veggie and solar power, but for now, for better or worse, it takes $80 to fill the tank!  Yes, $80!!

** Exciting update!  Anyone who donates will receive a copy of Zine Tour Zine, a first-person account of the Zine Mobile’s inaugural travels, created by Jenna Freedman, incredible zine-maker and librarian! **

CONTACTS/ACCESS/ASSISTANCE in the places we’re headed… If you’re interested in helping organize a self-publishing/zine event, know of an awesome space to park/have open library hours, are interested in housing/feeding the library workers that travel in the zine mobile, please get in touch — zinemobile(at)gmail(dot)com. Cities, small towns, rural areas, intentional communities, land projects, small farms, animal sanctuaries — we’re open to anything, especially excited to participate in events that are free/donation-only, wheelchair accessible, and all-ages.

More ways to help will be posted soon. As ever, spreading the word and sending good vibes is equally important and appreciated!

The Zine Mobile launches in less than two weeks — so exciting!!  Please help give it a good sendoff by doing one (or more!) of the following!?  Thank you thank you!!!

Donate money! Any amount helps and is sooooo appreciated!  Money raised goes only toward fuel, supplies/resources, and food (all participants are volunteers). We have a full schedule that necessitates a lot of driving… the more money we raise, the more places we can go!

Donate zines — ones you’ve already made or make a new one!  Please send zines to our sister project, Zine Apothecary, 3310 15th Ave South, Minneapolis, MN 55407.

Donate magazine racks and clip displays!  email zinemobile(at) and we can arrange to get them (Twin Cities!).

Help out at the launch/celebration! In particular we’re looking for people to help teach mini/informal zine-making sessions. Get in touch if you’re interested: zinemobile(at)

Spread the word of the Zine Mobile and hold wishes of a successful launch and inaugural tour for us!
