What’s a zine?
Simply put, zines (pronounced “zeens”) are self-published books and periodicals. They are closely related to DIY culture.
Our zine, At My Whit’s End, features stories, poems, photos, quotes, and doodles by friends of the club. It’s a reflection of our campus culture, and a celebration of each contributor’s creativity.
How do you make zines?
If you can fold paper, you can make a zine – and many zines these days are digital, too.
Here are some links to resources that can teach you more about zines:
A readable PDF of a zine that covers zine layouts, zine history, and possible zine ideas. You can also download a print-ready copy.
Links to zine distros, histories, and videos by the Rowan Writing Arts department’s resident zine expert.
A template for making a webpage that can also be printed into a minizine.
