Zines are shipping!
At long last, Waiting for October is shipping! It’s going to take a while for us to get caught up - we’re still blown away by how many people put in orders - but we’ll get there. The first batch of zines are currently en route to Canada, the UK, Australia, and a wide variety of US states. We’ll be getting more and more zines out the door over the next couple of weeks, and...
Waiting for October + Save the Music Foundation
When we first set out to do this, we didn’t expect it to make any money. We’re still a bit shy of breaking even, but based on the rate the first printing is going, there’s a decent chance the zine is going to turn a profit. After consulting with the contributors, we’ve collectively decided to donate any profits from copies of Waiting for October sold through KrebStar/the...

Guess What I Saw Today?
A printed proof of Waiting for October! It was gorgeous and even somewhat shiny! The centerfold folded out, and there were staples and everything! It was at the print shop, and I had to give it back, so I did not lick it. I mean, in case you were wondering. -Rachel

Attn: Will McRobb
Hi, Will McRobb! Wow—thank you so much for getting in touch with us, and for your kind note and invitation! We’re pretty bowled over.

Here’s part one. “Something we definitely were aware of and wanted to do and pushed [for] as much as we could at the time was, we all really loved the idea of taking things in the kid world that are relatively everyday and blowing...
