What Is A Zine?
Zines (pronounced zee-ns, as in magazine) are fan productions, usually made by either a single person or small group, and generally consist of art and writing, centered around a theme. These may be professionally printed or done DIY-style. Zines are often made and sold with profits going towards charity, but many zine projects are for-profit as well.
Where Do You Find Zines?
I personally use the website: https://atozines.carrd.co/
How Do I Join A Zine?
Find a zine (usually via Tumblr or Twitter), wait for applications to open, and apply. You won’t get into every zine, especially if your portfolio of art or writing is small, but keep trying!
Can I Recommend You As A Guest Contributor/Writer/Poet/Chef/Mod?
Will You Join My Zine?
Send me a DM on Tumblr @RiverMoose-Sam if you think I’d be interested and if I am and have time I’ll apply!
