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.

Do you like zines? How about feminism? Because second annual NYC Feminist Zine Fest is coming up! Mark your calenders for March 1st, 2014 from 1-6pm. This time we will be at Barnard College in uptown Manhattan, 3009 Broadway in the James Room on the 4th floor of Barnard Hall. The space is handicap accessible.

We will be opening the call for tablers very soon, so if you’re a zinester or artist interested in sharing your work, keep an eye on our website (http://feministzinefestnyc.wordpress.com/) for updates. We also need volunteers to help the day run smoothly so if you think that sounds like you (or you have questions in general), email us at feministzinefestnyc@gmail.com! RSVP to the WMZ event here!

16 pages; quarter-size.  I tried to go for 24 pages, but it didn't work out that way.  This zine is Dirty July #2 and it is the first zine I have done in FIVE years!!  I decided to make a zine about my best friend Christy, so that is what I did.  I lost Christy to cancer in 1995 at the age of 16.  I made the zine on the 17th anniversary of her passing.

I said I was gonna illustrate it, but that went right out the window. It's way text-heavier than I intended it to be when it all began on Sunday morning.

32 pages, all about how to run a game of urban golf & a book I ran across at a yard sale, GIRL ANNUAL 1984, which is either the awesomest thing ever or the most horrific. Still unsure which...
