Come and make your own zine and discover the world of self-publishing. Registration is required.

A zine (pronounced "zeen," short for "magazine") is a self-published, usually low-budget, work of texts and images. Zines can cover any topic and can be made using a variety of methods, from simple photocopying and stapling to elaborate hand-crafted designs. It's a short form magazine you make yourself.

Zines are a great medium for expressing creativity and individuality. Here are some common types of content that you might find in zines:

  • Personal writing and stories: Many zine makers use the format to write about their own experiences, thoughts and feelings, often in a confessional or journal style.
  • Art and illustrations: Zines are a great way for artists to showcase their work, whether it's drawings, collages or mixed-media pieces.
  • Interviews and profiles: Zine makers might interview people they find interesting or profile different subcultures or communities.
  • Music and culture reviews: Zines have long been a way for music fans to share their love of certain bands or genres, as well as write about other cultural events like film, fashion or literature.
  • Poetry and short fiction: Zines are also a great outlet for writers who want to share their poetry or short stories.
