Joy Division were shit. Joy Division were fucking rubbish. I don’t even like us being mentioned in the same sentence as Joy Division. They were so awful, they were so, so... so unambitious.

There is no logic or purpose to my publications other than to entertain and bewilder. They are tiny and cheap – the intention is to create something that can be read over a coffee and passed to a friend, something fun to ponder and share for a small moment during a busy day. www.facebook.com/series/of.liesLina Sometimes I Feel So Distance duckling monster space thingsA first zine full of doodles and ramblings from here and there.

Anarty Anarty is about contemporary art from NZ but also from all over the world. There will be articles reviewing art I like and how they related and compare to the art scene currently. I at times try to use some of the techniques these artists use, and I showcase my own work using these artists as artist models. I also dabble in craft too. There’s a bit of anarchy or Anarty! – but it comes together in a magazine. www.anartyblog.wordpress.com Rebel Press Rebel Press is a small anarchist publishing collective based in Wellington, producing quality anarchist literature written in Aotearoa and the wider South Pacific. www.rebelpress.org.nz   Potroast Potroast was founded in April 2009 and is a biannual literary zine which publishes original short-fiction, poetry and art. Potroast has a focus on work which is exploratory and experimental. We look for work which is expanding boundaries within the literary concepts of poetry, short prose and dialogue based writing (i.e. short pieces for performance) and art which explores the boundaries between image and storytelling (narrative drawing, graphic storytelling). potroastzine.wordpress.com Lucy Meyle I’m a recent grad of illustration into alternative and experimental comics.
