This comment is to Dawn.  I've been doing other research on zines and have come across numerous articles about teaching using zines.  Just now, I came across this one:

Not Just for Kids Anymore: Using Zines in the Classroom
The Radical Teacher
No. 55, EDUCATION AND CONSUMERISM (Spring 1999), pp. 15-19
And this:
Zinesters in the Classroom: Using Zines to Teach about Postmodernism and the Communication of Ideas
Kristin G. Congdon and Doug Blandy
Art Education
Vol. 56, No. 3 (May, 2003), pp. 44-52
But there is really a lot more.  These are in JSTOR, though I would try Project Muse too.  OK, hopefully that's helpful.  -Anne

I just sent you some stuff via email. I've got a teaching with zines bib, but it's about five years old. I'd love to update it. Maybe we can collaborate on posting a list here http://zinelibraries.info.

Hi Zinesters!
My name's Dawn. I am a former NYC public high school ESL teacher who taught zine-making to my students. Now, I'm in library school studying to become a community college/academic librarian, hopefully. 

Anyway, I am currently in an information literacy pedagogy course, and doing a research process project with the following research question:
"How do high school teachers create effective zine projects to help students of all learning abilities improve in their writing skills?"

If any of you have/know of someone who has/or know of resources where I can find information related to this question, please reply to me at the following email address- 

Thanks in advance!

I want  things such as
-music/movie reviews
-I'll promote some good "punk"(anything) bands and comics and such.
I'll give credit.
-Free issue for those who contribute.

I'm looking for a great jambalaya full of shit. Kinda like a VERY LARGE New York news paper. I'd like some people from NYC to contribute as well.
Please help!

NYC Zinesters: today is International Zine Library Day: a timely time for me to post this call for zines!


We are currently seeking zine donations to the Zine Collection at the Brooklyn College Library. Zines about Brooklyn, zines made in Brooklyn, zines about zines, or other subjects, particularly those related to multi-cultural issues, LGBT culture, or other under-represented viewpoints are all welcomed.


Send TWO copies of each zine if you can- one for preservation (in Brooklyn College Library's archives and special collections) and one for the browsing collection (eventually they may be available for check-out). This way your zine will be preserved for posterity AND accessible by all CUNY students!


questions can be directed to zinecollection@brooklyn.cuny.edu


zines can be mailed directly to:


Zine Collection, Attn: Alycia Sellie

Brooklyn College Library

2900 Bedford Avenue

Brooklyn, NY 11210
