All aboard the Zine-go-round!

Return rider? Glad to see your again! Design the next page in the zine that you have received and send on! OR start a new zine (see guidelines below)!

Just added the last page to a zine? Send it back to it's owner!

If at any time you lose interest or choose not to participate, please contact me so that the zines can continue to circulate! Good communication will continue to make these swaps successful!

Zine-go-round Links:

Participants Forum Thread: Where we discuss what we're doing, ideas, and more!

Zine-go-round Spreadsheet: List of current zine participants, zine locations,and themes. If this is your first swap you will be able to view this once partners are assigned.

New riders welcome!

Mini zines are small, self-published pieces of work. For this collaborative project, six people will contribute to your zine! You will design the outside of your zine.

Please do the following: For your first swap you will prepare one mini zine (see tutorial). Choose a theme and create front and back covers for your zine. Include your mailing address on the back cover. Send this zine to your partner and include a note describing your theme or anything related to the zine that you would like your partner to know.

Once all of the inside pages have been filled, your zine will be sent back to you! Be sure that your return mailing address is printed clearly on the back cover.

Be aware that you are committing to send a completed swap back to it's owner at the end.

If you choose to jump on the zine-go-round realize that it will take six rounds to complete your zine!

First time making a mini zine? Check out this awesome tutorial!

Zines may be sent flat or folded (the latter will save you on postage).

E-mails will be sent to keep members updated when new rounds are created.

Is there a set amount of time a person keeps each zine as it comes to him/her to keep things moving? Thank you.

We've been doing a round every 4-6 weeks, but with zines travelling all over the globe, it could take 2+ weeks to receive it. This is round 6 so this will be the last entry for the zines that have participated in every round.

@towenby secretterrabite is spot on! But I definitely encourage you to get involved if you are interested! Several have joined in the last couple of rounds and there will be many more to come. ;)

I definitely recommend it, @townby :) I joined in a little later, and it's been nothing but a FUN experience! :)

@Wingy I just messaged you and have also sent a new e-mail to the group.

@soyprincesa2 awesome!

Wingy 10/ 6/2013 #

a new one would be great :)

BusyB 10/ 6/2013 #

I would love to participate next round! Do you know when you might be listing the new one so I don't miss it?

soyprincesa2 10/ 7/2013 #

@snout Please let me know .... how do I go about putting a new zine into the rounds. Do I send a new one to Wingy or do I mail it with another zine.......???

snout 10/10/2013 #

@soyprincesa2 Once you have contributed the last page to a zine and sent it home to the owner, you can start a new zine to circulate.

I put the zine in the mail today. But I realized today is a holiday (Columbus Day) in the USA so the post office is closed. The envelope won't get post marked until tomorrow.

Same thing happened to me! My apologies for not realizing this before!
