Should I take that as a sign-up, ChronicReader? =)

I think most people have found the making a zine part fairly straight-forward; there's lots of videos on YouTube about how to do it. The tricky part I found was photocopying, but there's also plenty of advice from the players here about how to do it.

This is interesting!

I love and collect zines. Zines as i know them are a part of PUNK culture. Ive seen anarchist zines, queer zines, occult zines, people's history zines... but i have rarely a zine topic that wasnt political (race & gender justice / antifascism / anarchism / amnesty etc), or very personal stories with sociopolitical implications (which i'd feel weird writing about tbh)..

Oh there is one other traditional option, a music zine, like articles & comics about local bands and independent music. Would that interest other players??

Soooo i need advice... i dont want to spoil the surprise but would anyone be willing to share their zine's *topics*? Because i love this swap idea but i am stumped for a zine topic that is inoffensive but still meaningful and challenging enough to be called a 'zine.' In short, is there such a thing as a non-punk zine? & what would such a zine be about?

Til i think of a good topic, consider me intrigued and lurking...

People might be willing to share their topics from last time if they don’t want to spoil the surprise or you can look at the thread from the last zine swap.

There were a number of affirmation/quote style zines last time, so that seems like a popular theme at the moment. Also, some ones with original poetry and art.

I have no idea what I'm going to do just yet, still thinking...

Question for those who have made them before, what type of paper do you use to make them? And then what type of paper do you use to copy them onto?

My zine in the last swap was about things my three year old wanted me to draw.

The zine I'm making now is about dreams/nightmares.

I received that zine and loved it. The paper you used had a gloss to it but wasn't photo paper(I think).. Could you please share what kind of paper you used? It was much nicer thank the copy paper I used.
Thanks.

Fierce Armadillo, the theme for my zine is my cat. I wrote a very short, fun story about her.

Thank you, Cheryl! As for the paper, I actually don't know! I had them photocopied at a Staples, so maybe you could check with their print center?

Ready to mail!

I have finished my "zines" and will get them in the mail this week. I had fun making these. I did what someone else suggested and I printed them on 11x17 inch paper. I printed them sort of in the middle of the page so that I could get the entire image on the paper then I just trimmed off the excess. I am posting a little "sneak peek" of my zine.
