24 Hour Zine Thing


24 Hour Zine Thing

Each July, the 24 Hour Zine Challenge asks zinesters to create a 24-page zine from conception to final product in 24 hours straight. Zines should be of suitable size and technical difficulty so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters.

Well, I did my zine. Am now knackered, but it was a great experience:

Thought I would throw the cover of my zine up here too. For proof or posterity. Whichever.

Hi, I finished my 24 hour zine earlier today, but wasn't sure where to announce it. Here maybe? Mine is train-of-thought-y and handwritten with a couple of photos and tiny illustrations. Mostly a flash intro to me, how I found zines, and why I want to make them.

Just finished one in only four hours, starting another!

Oops... I've done the zine challenge before (last year) so this year I just assumed I remembered all the rules. So my zine isn't quite long enough... I'm going to have to try again some other time this month with a new topic :)

Cool - thanks.  :)

@Betty, yes, participants can choose any consecutive 24 hour period during the month of July to create a 24 hour zine. There's no specific day, it just has to be completed by midnight on July 31st.

So, I still don't really understand, even after looking at the website. Do people individually just choose a random day during the month and say they are going to get it done that day? Or is everyone supposed to do it during a designated 24 hour period?

The 24 Hour Zine Thing Challenge 2012 has official begun!

86 people have already signed up to participate, and some have already began creating their 24 hour zine! Keep everyone posted on how your zine is coming along by posting your progress on Facebook, Twitter, and of course, here!

neither doll houses nor tree houses: on living outside of the gender binary

finished in under 24 hours for the chicago zine fest, this zine focuses on the ups and downs of finding myself outside of the gender binary and attempts to both de- and re-construct various questions about my own gender as well as gender in general. three separate sections discuss feeling pushed out of femininity, how masculinity is viewed as inherent and femininity is viewed as a fictitious performance, how striving for the “perfect balance” of two genders is not plausible nor an adequate solution, acceptance or tolerance (or neither) that i feel in specific spaces, how my radical friends misgender and disrespect me more often than my non-radical ones, the (non-) accessibility of queer jargon and language, how coming out has garnered me the most intense gender assumptions yet, dealing with friends who don’t “get it”, my desire to validate my own identity without stepping on the identity of others, and checking white privilege. 32 pgs, ½ size, b&w. $2-3 or trade. message me or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa (at) gmail (dot) com for more info!
