a place for zinesters - writers and readers
the activist scene at my school produces a lot of zines, and i'm trying pretty hard to spread the gospel as a one-person mission for the Lord. And by "Lord" I mean "zine."
we have a school magazine they wont let anyone hand out small zines since the journalism dep would think its unfair they have to sit through some grueling editing and zinesters edit themselves therefore gaining some of their freedom.....and since it's such a diverse school, the school is afraid someone might be offended by what someone else writes....what a surprise
I've tried starting something with classmates and they all coward, even when i said it would JUST be about film, they got scared or just were too unsure, i told them to use fake names and they thought that was "stupid cause then how do people that like it know it's you?" LOL
then when i wanted to do something on my own teachers said i had to run it through them first....sigh....
oh well good thing they think i gave up....ill just post my new one everywhere and if anyone is offended by my VERY may i say tame stories, there's an email they can write to :D
Looks like an outdated thread but we'll just add that there is most definitely not a single zine that we've come across anywhere on our campus (unless it's really, really underground). We're trying to start it up but it's difficult, what with classes. We end up doing most of our work in the summer. ...
I haven't found one in my community college yet but there are a lot of new groups and clubs forming. I may consider forming one. I was able to, however, convince my Diversity Committee to publish a zine on diversity :) It turned out super cool but I don't know if people actually picked them up (we gave them out since we have a small fund that covered the creation of them).
I haven't heard of one at my college or in the area yet. I'm trying to set up a zine-making night with my school's Feminist Collective, though, so hopefully we'll get some started with people.
