Our next meeting in January will be a presentation on the history and types of zines, which will be the basis for the 2019 Collaborative Book. We introduced the project at December’s meeting and received a great response with over 20 people signing up for it so far.

We are making zines! A ’zine (from “magazine”) is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, reproduced via photocopier. Zines are made by a single person or a very small group, and are photocopied into physical prints for circulation. Some are serialized and have subscribers! Look up Zines on the internet for ideas.
