We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I'm embarking on my first perzine, and while I know most of the content already, I'm curious about what makes a 'good' perzine to others. I know what I like, but what are other people after in the ones they read?


For instance, I like 'short snippets of daily life' type of stories. I also love lists. :)

I like opinionated perzine writing, and interesting layouts that also showcase the personality of the maker.
I think a good perzine is writing about your unique experiences.  I love ordinary details and line drawings.  I love short vignettes, little stories that emphasize the strange/odd.  I love travel stories that find the details natives take for granted.  I hope this helps!
Thanks! :)
I think everyone has a unique life and different perspectives and when you bring those to the page, the things that make your life uniquely yours, that's what makes me love a zine.

This was also very helpful to me. 

Very helpful! Thank you :)

Funny, I was just coming here to ask this question... again. :P
