So what the hell is a Zine? It’s this. This thing you are reading and holding and hopefully liking. ‘Zine’ is short for Magazine, it’s a small independent publication. It’s easy and cheap to make and a really great way to get your point across. Although if you don’t have a point to make it’s also a really great way to publish your drawings and simply create something fabulous. Right.
Decide what you want to make your zine about – writing, photography, drawings, funny pictures of cats from the internet, wacky quotes from your little sister… whatever you want… because you can.
Just do it. Collect your bits of writing/images/quotes and create your layout. You can do it on a computer or simply cut out and glue onto pieces of paper.
Photocopy it! Print it! (don’t forget to staple and cut the closed edges) Give it away! Sell it!
Here’s a nice easy layout structure that might help you on your way to greatness!
Also if worst comes to the worst, and this has been totally unhelpful – Google it. Or check out this sweet little gif we found on the internet!
