A zine is a small, self-published piece of work. A minizine can be made from a single sheet of paper and easily reproduced on a copier. There is an exhaustive and rather profanity-laced description of them here. For this collaborative project you will design the cover, pass it on, and six others will add their creative mojo!
Choose a theme and design the front and back covers for your zine. On the back cover you may choose to leave space for each contributor to sign. Just make it clear by design or in your description note that this is what you want. (It should not be left blank.)
Include your mailing address and a short note describing your theme or anything related to the zine that you would like your partner to know. This will be included with your zine as it is passed on.
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 zine or in a note accompanying the zine.
Be aware that you are committing to send a completed zine back to it's owner by participating in this swap.
Complete the next page in the last zine you received and pass it on. Just added the last page to a zine? Send it back to its owner. Now you can start a new zine or check the forums to see if someone has an extra that needs extra contributors. 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.
If you choose to jump on the zine-go-round, realize that it will take six rounds to complete your zine if you create a typical six-page minizine. You are expected to continue participating in swaps during the rotation of your zine. That's part of the fun of a collaborative project :)
Zines may be sent flat or folded (the latter will save you on postage).
ATTENTION PARTICIPANTS: Please post on the Zine-Go-Round forum on ZMACS as zines are sent and received. It's nice to know where your darling is!
Open to all ZMACS members in good standing.
