Description:

Whether you are new to zines or a pro, this is a swap to share your unique mini-zine and also send each other your comments. This is a great way to start out if you are new to this or help each other with ideas and tips.

In this swap you will create a mini-zine and send to 5 partners. Can be color or black-and-white, pics or text, whatever you like! Format is also your choice - make it unique to you!! Journal style, mini-articles, photos, recipes, news, opinions, absolutely anything goes!! Newbies are welcome, we all had to start somewhere!! Just no flakers please. I will angel if needed but it shouldn't even be an issue right?? O:)

Here is a nifty template for the mini-zine (not required but an easy way to get started!): http://www.knowledgeup.com/2007/11/05/diy-mini-8-page-pocket-zine/ or check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh1W15BWCUk (or you can use your own format if you like! hand made, printed, copied, whatever!)

I just learned about mini zines and I think I've found my new obsession! I can't wait to make my first one and share it with you all!

Darn Canada Post is making drop my swaps :( Maybe next time around I can share my first zine with you all :)

hello all

I am afraid we are in the middle of a postal strike up here - do I just hold on to the zines and send when the strike is over or do I take my name off the list?

@funkymommy you can't take you name off the list, as the swap has already started. Write to you swap partners and explain what's going on. If I where you I would send when the strike is over.

question... does our mini zine have to be the specific size/length of the template? I am more comfy making 1/4 page size zines. Just wondering. Thanks.
