I'm about to launch my zine project with the kids (seventh grade reading students), and I am wondering if anyone has any advice for kinesthetic poetry activities to do as well.

sweet group! i really want to try to see if we can fit in some kind of zine workshop at the camp i'll be working at this summer.

i made a zine while working in a library called mostly HAND written. issue #2 is all about making your own zine free from the stresses of self editing and perfectionism. in fact, when making it, i only used the materials available to me at my desk. joyous fun. =D

the rest of the mHws generally include a tutorial on something or other from making paper beads to visual journaling. there's 7 of them right now. you can see more details on each issue here: http://anongrrl.etsy.com/

i've been trying to teach my nearest and dearest how to make their own zines, but you'd be amazed how some trained artists resist the photocopy love. pffft. teaching them whether they wanna know it or not! ahaha. =D

Hi folks. I'm working to try and get a distro going that is all about zines that educate folks. I'm looking for zines on anything about education and zines that discuss learning new skills, ways to take care of yourself, etc. Here's the link: http://freeskooldistro.weebly.com/index.html. It's kind of bare until it's up and running, so i'm looking for zines to distro. if you or anyone you know has anything, please send it along!

Hey all. Good idea for a group. I'll be leading a workshop of my own devising at a book fair in a couple of weeks. My first one! If anyone has any advice to pass along I'd be grateful for it.

Welcome!! I taught a zine-making project to my Advanced Graphic Design students, and they made some awesome zines... I'm interested in hearing about other people's projects...
