Nervous about snail mail during COVID-19 quarantine? But need a creative outlet?
Try zine-making. Create, scan, and swap by email. You start with paper* and end with paper, but the mode of delivery is electronic.
The theme is poetry.
Any form of poetry including haiku, black-out poetry, sonnet, etc.
The zine can be:
Turn one sheet of paper into an 8-page pocket-size zine. If you have never made a zine, check these links for instructions:
(*)My Powerpoint zine template. Feel free to use it if you'd like to make your zine digitally. The template can be used in Google Slides or Powerpoint. Download it first, then upload it to Google Slides or Powerpoint. See How to Make a Zine using PowerPoint or Google Slides.
The back page should have your swap-bot name. Most people also include the swap title.
Make your zine, scan it, email it.
Set your scanner's DPI setting (dots per inch) to 600dpi for a sharp image.
When you receive other member's zines, you can print and construct their zine to add to your collection.
The number of swap partners will be equal to the number who sign up, that way everyone gets to see all of the zines. I can provide an email list if the participants exceed 4. For a quick copy-n-paste the bcc (blind carbon copy) email field.
I check that all zines have been rated. I expect everyone to email their zine by the 'last day to send your items' date. When all is sent and rated I will add a 'finished' stamp and a photo of the zines to the discussion section.
