Mini zines are easy to create by using one piece of 8.5x11 paper and one cut. For the how to, see this easy YouTube tutorial

When you finish, you have an 8-page mini zine. Photocopy or print off three copies and snail mail your zine to three partners.

The theme for this is open (creator’s choice of topic) so your zine can be about anything.

Although this is flat mail, I've noted it as a Type 3 swap because of the creativity/time people may put into their zines.

Snail mail. International. Group membership.

Must the mini-zine be the origami folded type or can we do a stapled pamphlet style?

I ask because, since the resultant zine using the above method was so small, I opted for a 3.5"x5" saddle-stapled style and I'd like to keep that format for my zines going forward.

That's fine. The one-pager is just an easy format for people.

Being an open theme can this zine be drawn, not written?

Artistic 06/17/2014 #

Yes, Holly.

Extending sign up and send by deadlines in hopes of getting more participation.

I'm afraid I'd better drop from this for now... My dad is sick again and i don't know that I'll be able to do a good job!

There are just 3 of us so we'll send to each other -- two partners instead of three. Partners are assigned.
