Swap description: A serial mini-zine

For this swap you will write/create a mini-zine that is to be part of an ongoing series. For example, it could be...:

  • ...a chapter from a longer story (to be continued)
  • ...a blog post on a particular theme you plan to return to
  • ...the story behind a piece of artwork
  • ...a craft tutorial
  • ...an ongoing journal (could be craft, personal, shopping-related – whatever is of interest to you)
  • ...a gallery or catalogue of your art/craft/work (assuming that your back-catalogue will fill more than a single mini-zine!)
  • ...a showcase of your ongoing mail art correspondence
  • ...any other theme that you can think of more than one zine's worth of content for!

I will host future rounds of this swap for subsequent issues of your series to be shared, but there is no obligation to join in more than one round. Please note: you are welcome to join in whether you have played in a previous round or not!

Swap requirements

  • 2 partners = 2 mini zines sent & 2 mini zines received.
  • Mini-zines must be made from a minimum of one A4/letter-size sheet but may be larger, if you like. A 'traditional' mini-zine is the minimum requirement, but feel free to experiment with additional pages, bindings, formats etc.
  • Zines may be handwritten, typed, word processed, cut-and-pasted – whatever style suits you. For those new to zines, it is usual to create one master-copy then photocopy or print multiples of the original.
  • If you participated in a previous round, please do not send out the same mini-zine - now is the time for the next issue! Alternatively, you may begin an entirely new series, if you prefer.
  • Zines sent do not need to be the first or even the 2nd in a series, just so long as they fall somewhere numerically within a zine series of your creation.
  • Send on time!

The obvious bit
Late swaps & low ratings will all be checked before assigning partners. Contact me if you think there might be a problem.
