This is a collaborative zine swap. It will consist of 7 (count 'em SEVEN!) rounds. Please don't join if you can't commit to all 7 rounds of this swap.

It will work like this (I hope).

Round 1: You will make a standard mini-zine from an 8.5 X 11 inch piece of paper. You will decide on a theme for your zine and decorate the front and back pages (covers) accordingly. You should include some contact info on the back page. Then you will send that unfinished zine to your partner. Round 1 complete!

Round 2: You will decorate page 2 of the zine you received in Round 1. Follow the originator's theme. Then you will send it to your Round 2 partner.

Rounds 3 thru 7: We will continue swapping zines, contributing one page at a time until they are full. Then you will send it back to the originator.

Use any media you like - collage, pencil, marker, paint - whatever media you like to create with.

We did a bunch of these a number of years ago and they are GREAT fun! It's so cool to see everyone's art and different takes on themes.

Be sure to put your address or contact info on the back page, or the person who adds the final page won't know whom to send it back to.

Clear as mud? Please send any questions you might have to me via PM, not this page.

We'll do about a month more or less between rounds.

Just noticed that my zine is coming right back to me on Round #2. Anyone else in the same situation?

samjowers 06/ 9/2021 #

@ace81620 if you want to send it to me on a quick turn around, I'll be more than happy to do a page. Just dm me for my address

samjowers 06/ 9/2021 #

Another thought, tell me what your zine theme is and I can send a page to glue into that spot.

@samjowers Aw, thank you!! It's a zine titled "Meet Me at the Park." So a page of what you'd bring for a picnic, etc. if we were meeting at a park today :) Food, music, game... anything that comes to mind! I'll DM my address to you. Thanks!!
