What are Zines?
A zine is a self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images.
They are published to display one's identity, sharing a niche skill or art, or developing a story, as opposed to seeking profit. Zines are individually made, emphasizing a personal connection between creator and reader, turning imagined communities into embodied ones.
Written in a variety of formats from desktop-published text to comics, collages and stories, zines cover broad topics including fanfiction, politics, poetry, art & design, ephemera, personal journals, social theory, intersectional feminism, single-topic obsession far outside the mainstream enough to be prohibitive of inclusion in more traditional media.
