Introducing Our Spring Issue: The Big Quit!!!

Exploited and exhausted, modern labourers are seeking a new possibility in the world of work: no work at all. In our Spring Issue we explore the anti-work movement and the ongoing battle for leisure. The issue also includes:

  • Making a Zine for Your Porch Pirate
  • Exploring the Menopausal Multiverse
  • An interview with writer Victoria Hetherington on her latest novel Autonomy
  • Nick Zedd’s Lovely Life of Scum

PLUS endless ZINE, COMICS, FILM, & INDIE BOOK reviews!

About Broken Pencil Magazine

“Broken Pencil is the entertaining, indispensable guide to zines.” – the Toronto Star

Since 1995, we have been a print magazine and online hub dedicated exclusively to exploring independent creative action. Our mandate is to raise awareness of the possibilities of independent print publishing and underground creative action, with a special emphasis on the DIY zine scene. Published four times a year in full colour, each issue of Broken Pencil features reviews of hundreds of zines and small press books, plus comics, excerpts from the best of the underground/independent press, interviews, original fiction and advice/how-tos about all aspects of the independent printed arts. Also check out Folio, a special section in each issue that asks a visual artist to gather works made with unexpected materials and adapt them to the printed page! From the hilarious to the perverse, Broken Pencil challenges conformity and demands attention.
