What’s a Zine?

What’s a zine?

Zines are handmade self-published works that contain unique content and perspectives not often found in the mainstream media. They are usually made in small amounts. They can be hand-written or drawn, typed on a typewriter or a computer, copied and pasted using found images, photocopied in color or black and white, bound with staples or thread using any variety of techniques. Having a zine festival is a great way to celebrate zines, connect with others who are interested or involved in the zine community, buy, sell, and trade zines, or just learn more about this awesome form of expression!
