We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers


A Zine Thing

"Its time we had a zine thing on the peninsula!" 
This was the drive behind the birth of A Zine Thing.
A *place to come meet up with fellow zinesters, discuss, write, read, make, share, create, trade, illustrate, collaborate & celebrate everything zine!
*group/congregation/collective bunch of enthusiasts etc.. physical venue for meetings changes depending on event
More recently, Tasha has been facilitating a range of creative workshops across Melbourne. This has evolved from her love of sharing zines and encouraging children and young adults to express themselves through this medium.
Expect to see many more workshops in the future via A Zine Thing.
Stay tuned for upcoming events!

"THIS IS FRANKSTON" A Community Zine Project
It's time we started thinking about collaborative zine projects!
At the January social catch up we discussed a few possible topical points about frankston city, and I think we should put these, and any others you can think of, together in the form of a community zine project.
The end result is intended to be a documented, real depiction of how frankston  is seen and lived in and what it means to by those that live/work/visit here. This zine will contain words and images drawn from our time spent in frankston: our experiences; honest and raw memories; celebrated and mourned positive and negative and perfectly ugly and conflictingly beautiful all at once - all of it!
Submission forms are available from local hangouts & the submission box is in the frankston libraries foyer. 1ST ROUND SUBMISSIONS DUE 31st MARCH.

About to embark on a sorting of submissions mission - wish me luck zinesters!

Comment by Tasha on March 24, 2013 at 12:30am

Harps - this makes me all kinds of happy!

I truly hope they contribute - one doesn't need to be well read to share a story or veiw point, although it can help get your point across, simple language can be just as effective. There is no way to qualify your legitamacy to be part of a community based project other than existing and sharing!

I am getting excited to see what kind of stories we can uncover to spread via This Is Frankston!

Had a bloke at Frankston library yesterday who was keen on writing for This Is Frankston. He prefaced his discussion by announcing that he wasn't very good at reading. He later took several submission forms to share with friends. This could be a literacy success story!
