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, or a phone, tablet, or computer!

This jam's theme is "rant"! You can write perzines (zines of personal writing), make a photo or art or comic zine, write an informational zine about something that makes you want to rant, or anything else you can think of! You may work with a team or by yourself.

If you want to join the Zines and Zinesters Discord server, here's an invite:

If you want something to build off of, here's some resources about making zines traditionally and digitally or a mix of both:

Hope everyone has a good time!
