a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hi Alli! Welcome to " the zine world."
I have been making zines for 12 years and I learned so much just from that act of doing. Never do anything because you think it's what other people will like or what other people are doing. COme up with something your truly passionate about no matter how big or small the audience might be and go for it. I am a feminist who loves horror moves so I make a feminist horror zine. I thought people would never dig it but six years later i'm still doing it and its great. So always follow your passions. Also, there is no rules at all about layout. Don't let anyone tell you different. Do whatever the fuck you want. And don't ever beat yourself up about anything. Every mistake you make (and you will make tons) will be the best learning experience ever. Only ten years into zine making to I sorta feeling like I know what i'm doing ;)
Just be kind and patient with yourself and express your thoughs with out shame.
And trade, buy, go to librarys read read read zines and see how different and amazing they are. Find the ones that mean the most to you and connected the people who wrote them. Develop connect/relationships with zinesters, they love it.
