I like the collaboration idea also. It would be fun to be a part of that as well. If you set up a size format for us to fit our copy to, we could all email our submissions to you, Jethro (or whom ever was coordinating the collaboration).  Then the coordinator could print out the results and distribute a copy to each of the participants. We could even make additional copies of it available as a fund-raiser for a good charity we all agree upon.

I'm good with the quarter-size format. And a How-to Zine would be great. With a widely diversified group, who know what kind of stuff I might learn to do - ha, ha! Is the suggested number of pages open for us to decide upon? Perhaps we should have a minimum, or a range of min to max number of pages? Or doesn't that matter to everyone?

I plan on getting my prep work going on this soon.


I like the idea of combining them for a How-To Collection / Encyclopedia. That's a good idea.

OH! I only have the theme, does anyone think it would be good to include a size? That way, as Rodeo suggested, you could put all the zines together and make a mini encyclopedia of sorts? If that's the case I think the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches would be a perfect size (1/4 size zine). let me know!

Absolutely, Doreen, I was gonna go with the idea that Rodeo Rockafeller suggested, "The How-To Mini Zine Swap!" this will be the 4th swap for the group! So everyone start working on your zines and I will post up the swap deadline soon, I'm thinking the end of August. To those left from the 3rd swap who have not sent out there zines to the group, please let us know when you will be sending them out. Since the date of the 4th swap is so far out anyone wanting to join should have plenty of time to make a zine and get it to everyone by the end of the deadline.

Jethro, how about letting us in on the theme of the next swap. I have time right now to work on it during this part of summer. I may be gone whenever you announce it. I would hate to miss the next round. You could set the deadline at some later date in the summer. That way I can work on it now and still take part. Do you have a theme in mind? Or a particular format?

oh, i didn't see the first comment to me. well i think everyone should contribute like a page or two of art or writing or something. or maybe we pick a theme and see everyone's take on it. that might be cool :)

I'm interested in collaboration, too!

by the way i haven't forgotten about the next swap, still waiting for some zines on the lats one to arrive, and my kids are here for the summer, so my focus is on them more than anything else. but I am planning out the next swap, so get ready  to be a part of it!!
