a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Since the terrifying years of middle school I've been interested in compiling art and words on pieces of paper to distribute amongst friends. From an imitation of the Daily Prophet to a forum of free speech during my last few years of high school, my monthly "paper" was a fun project I cut and pasted together while I slid through classes.
Now, after digging here and there, reading this and that and generally collecting information and samples from various zine scenes, I'm looking to make as many zines as I can muster. Fresh out of five years of college, I'm itching to focus my energy on creative projects that won't determine pass or fail marks.
I'm still quite new to zines and don't have many under my belt, but I'm eager to absorb and apply whatever I can.
After graduating college, I returned to my college town on a quick thirty-minute visit and discovered not only that the art club (OMAS, Organization of Murray Art Students) was in the hands of some of my best friends but also that they'd began using zines as bulletins to update the art department! What a happy discovery :)
