I am teaching a zine class at my local public library. It is my first time teaching a class, and I am really exciting to bring the ideas of zines to my town. The age group for the workshop is age 12 to adult.
So I looked through my zine collection of some 50-100 zines to possibly filter out zines with swears, sexually explicit context like photos, drawings or writing of sexual experiences.
It was a daunting task because only one zine out of 100 said 18+. Almost every zine had at least a few swears words, and I had to go page by page to find them. I manage to separate some 5-10 zines out of 100 most of which were my own.
Have other people had this issue with teaching a zine class?
What do other people think about the idea of labeling their zines for appropriate age ranges?
