WELCOME TO THE ZINE NETWORK
The zine network is a network of all of our favorite small / local / up-and-coming zines. This page is meant to not only serve as a reminder that there are countless zines out there, but to also give you a place to find a zine that speaks to you.
Each zine we know has a unique personality, just like you. So if Aspirants Magazine isn't your cup of tea, we hope one of the zines below is.
Please note that this page is periodically updated and that the date below indicates the latest update.

Lune Magazine is an advocacy magazine and website by and for young people, AKA primarily high school and college students. It's essentially a compilation of writers, artists, photographers, and podcast makers giving their perspective on the world around us, whether it be on a macro scale or just about the little things in our culture. We get controversial and sometimes uncomfortable, but we keep it real.
ALTANGELES is an online music publication with the goal of giving exposure to upcoming bands in Southern California. The publication is run by two best friends and an amazing team of writers and photographers with a passion for music.

Wednesday Zine is a multi-subject (currently digital) publication designed to make the world a more accessible place for young people, especially women. We don’t believe fashion or wellness is trivial, and we know young women are activists and interested in complex (though historically inaccessible) content areas— such as politics and the arts. This is why we are contributor-based and cover such a wide array of mediums and discussions.
Grace Galore Magazine’s intent is to create a magazine for marginalized folx to have a voice and share the versatility of each of those creative folx’s work both in and out of the magazine through themed and unthemed issues. We hope to reach a group of young and not so young adults who want to challenge themselves through their mediums.
