May I ask how one make a zine?
So there’s quite a few ways to go about making a zine! You can always do a solo zine, in which all the art/comics/writing is created by you. This can be done traditionally (handwritten/printed out) or digitally (through Gumroad or a similar service.) A great thing about zines is that they are pretty cheap and easy to make.
Here’s some good resources for folding the paper into a booklet, along with other general tips:
Now if you want to bring together a group of people to create for your zine that’s going to take some more effort. A good start is having a common theme that everyone makes something for (zines don’t necessarily need themes, but it helps creators to have a prompt.) Next you’ll need a due date for the finished pieces, along with how many creators you would like to be featured. Is every submitter going to be accepted? Or do you have a set number of people you’d like in your zine (if so, it helps to have people submit their websites so you can get an idea of their work.)
Once you have an idea for how big the zine will be, you should decide upon payment. How much will creators get? “Just for fun” zines, and charity zines are common, but it’s always good practice to at least offer creators a copy of the zine.
Hope that helped, good luck creating!
