I am a poor student journalist writing an article on zine culture and wondered if anyone felt like sharing their thoughts with me?
I wondered how/why people got in to writing or reading zines? Why DIY culture is more appealing than the mainstream? What zines mean to them?
If it helps I will go first! I got into zines as I like the idea of reading someone's thoughts without them being subject to someone else's editorial censorship. I was at Brighton Zinefest this year and met some great people, read some great zines.
I like to read zines as they feel organic and unmanufactured, plus a million times more creative than newspapers and mainstream magazines. There is not a word count and no authority to answer to.
Who's next? Anyone?
