Description:

Please read the swap description completely before joining! Thanks!

This swap is for swappers that have been wanting to try a zine, but afraid to dip their toes in. This swap is to make your FIRST zine ever!

(Any seasoned zine makers who join should expect FIRST TRY quality zines.)

Your zine must be at least 8 pages (including cover). You will make it using standard size paper (8.5x11 inches) folded in half.

(So the book will be half the size of a sheet of computer paper. This means if you do the minimum 8 pages, you technically only used 2 sheets of paper, folded in half. )

You will have plenty of time to do a good job on this, so please put in some thought and a bit of an effort!

You can do your zine on ANY topic you want. A hobby or interest of yours... movie reviews... books, random art, tips, etc. ANYTHING. Just have fun!

You will be sending to 5 partners, since all you do is make a master copy and send xerox copies. Please makes sure your copies are clear/ quality copies. Some things don't photocopy well, so experiment if you need to, or read tips online.

USA ONLY. Feel free to host your own international version.

*No newbies. You must have at least a 4.9 rating. NO recent 1's or 3's. No UNEXPLAINED 1's or 3's ever. Must have completed at least 15 Type 3 Swaps, and at least 30 overall swaps. *

I reserve the right to ban anyone that seems suspicious. I go through participants the day I assign partners, and ban those that don't meet requirements. It's not my job to hunt you down for an explanation on a rating.

I had to edit the partner assignment date, because I realized I was going to be out of town that day... I just changed it to a few days later.
