From the Zines and Zinesters Discord server, here's a new zine making jam! Don't know what a zine is? Well, traditionally, a zine is a self-published booklet, generally made and distributed by one person or small group of people. Zines have their own underground subculture devoted to making, buying, trading, and collecting them. Most zines are made with photocopiers or home printers and stapled or sewed together by hand. Some people make zines without the use of any computers. Zines are about DIY, about community, about writing whatever you want without worrying about having to go through gatekeepers. Anyone can make a traditional zine as long as they have access to paper and writing implements!
This jam's theme is hobbies! You can write perzines (zines of personal writing) about taking part in your hobbies, make a photo or art or comic zine of you doing your hobby, write zines of DIY instructions for your hobbies, write an informational zine about a hobby or something you're interested in, or even write about someone else's hobbies. You may work with a team or by yourself.
