I wanted to create a swap for those who are new to zine making, and those who are pro's and would love to share their talents with others. For this swap you are to create a zine about anything Winter related and send to your partner. IMPORTANT TO KNOW: It's senders choice (so do not sign up if easily offended!).
What is a zine??? A zine is a magazine/pamphlet/booklet that you make and publish yourself (usually photocopied). They can contain anything you like for example: Poetry, opinions, recipes, a comic, photographs, stories, reviews, sketches, personal experience, journal style. They can be completely written, completely art or anywhere in between. Here is a link to instructions for creating an 8 page zine template from one piece of paper. Go to the site and scroll down about half way.
*To create your zine you may use any type of techniques. So sketch, collage, word processor, typewriter, handwritten, photos.... create it as you wish.
*Theme is Winter so zine must have something/anything to do with winter. Some examples: (different flavors of hot cocoa, the best winter activities where you live, your winter wardrobe, quotes of winter, winter Olympic winners)
*The completed size must be no larger than quarter page (about 4.5 inches x 5.5 inches). Minimum 8 pages (including front and back covers).
*Make it, copy it, put it together and mail one copy each to your 4 partners.
More experienced zinesters (people who make zines) are of course welcome to join- just remember your in a swap for beginners so expect beginner quality.
Newbies are welcome (with well filled out profiles) and established swappers must have minimum rating of 4.95, no unexplained 1's or 3's
