Are lyrics poetry? Is performance simply artifice? A zine that seeks to elevate and celebrate lyrics of local (and regional) songwriters from the Seattle (ish) area, the first issue of Voicings features five songwriters.

In This Issue

  • Parker Marlow (Orchard Ladder)
  • Aaron Spieldenner (Lightweight Champaion)

In addition to lyrics from your favorite local acts, find a venue directory to help you in your quest for a great night out at your local tavern or theatre. Find this zine in the wild at one of their shows, or order a copy here.

Proceeds go directly to the artists when you buy at an event and Common Meter does not take a cut. At the end of the year, we'll curate a larger omnibus – get subscribe to stay tuned! Feel good knowing you support your local music scene when you buy this zine! 

This zine is 5.5" x 8.5" and clocks in at 36 pages. The cover is printed on 110 lb Mowhawk fine papers, with 32 pound interior pages. Each zine is printed, collated, and stapled by hand in the Common Meter Press studio in the Heart of Ballard.

What the heck are zines?

Zines are self-made books that come in all shapes and sizes, made by people all over the world. Many zines offer healing through poetry, the sharing of personal stories, and even self-help tips. They're ephemeral, and fleeting, yes. They have copy marks and dog-ears, sometimes. But those analog imperfections are part of what we love about them.

  • Our Press

    At Common Meter Press, we publish zines and books by writers with whom we share an affinity for poetry and non-traditional fiction. We print, collate, and staple our in-house books and zines by hand, often partnering with local printers.
