This swap will be to make one copy of a single page zine for your two partners! The theme of the zine can be anything, so long as there isn't anything that could be misconstrued as offensive (highly disturbing subject matter, nudity, profanities, dirty jokes et cetra), your zine can contain anything you'd like!

If you don't know what a zine is, it is essentially a small book / magazine containing hand drawn or painted artwork, poems, collages, or really any other 2D media! If you aren't sure how to create a single page zine, please got to this site: https://janedavenport.com/2017/05/23/share-some-love-with-a-zine-part-1/ Where the lovely Ali Brown will teach you her technique for creating these mini zines!

The zine that you create can be made from any media such as photographs, pencil crayons, paper collage, sketches, any kind of paint, and any other medium you can think of! Your zine can tell a story, be a collection of poetry, or just be a collection of images and artwork that you like! As a note, this swap is not profile-based, however if you choose to create a profile based zine you are more than welcome to do so.

Rather than sending off your original artwork, each zine should be photocopied and printed out then cut and folded for your swap partners. Participants are also allowed to create a single zine to photocopy,and send the same photocopied zine to both of their partners.

I ask that anyone who signs up has no 3's in the last 6 months, and absolutely no 1's unless the rating is more than 12 months old, and the user can prove that they have done everything in their power to fix the situation. This swap is newbie friendly, however all participants must have a complete profile.

Please feel free to send me a personal message if you have any questions or if I've happened to miss any central information.

Happy swapping!!!

Edit: If you cannot access a photocopier or scanner than you may by all means send original artwork : )

Yea! I have been waiting for a zine swap!

COULD we send the original artwork, though? I mean, as someone who does not have easy access to a photocopying machine. ..

You can definitely send original artwork if you'd like : ) I'll make sure to edit the post to include that as an option

a lot of convenient stores have copy machines and there is always office depot or kinkos. it would be a shame for you to have to make two separate zines. and the library also does copies!

I am so excited - I have mine already printed and ready to go! I can't wait to swap!
