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!)

Does it have to be typed or can it be handwritten or can you type it, cut it out then stick it in? I don't know how to do the clever type it all on one page thing, upside down and so on.

There is a template that you can download, but hand-written is fine too. Sometimes I just fold up a paper and then write/draw on it, and photocopy. Whatever works for you!! :)

What exactly is a zine? Is it like a mini magazine? Sorry to sound stupid but could someone explain what it is?

Yes like a small magazine, shoot me an email if you'd like me to mail you an example!! :) [email protected]

Could you help me? I am new and tried to join as it says new people are allowed, but it says I don't have the rating requirement. Thanks Izzy
