What is a zine? A “zine” is a fan made magazine. The subject of the “zine” can be anything you want to write about. Many people will publish a “zine” and sell them at small mom and pop book stores or by mail order. Others post their “zines” on the internet. They are called “e-zines”.
What should I put in my zine? You first need to decide what your “zine” is going to be about. Is it about movies, toys, old newspaper ads, your favorite tv shows? Once you choose your subject, you can start gathering the information to do your “zine”.
Content Your “zine” can be handwriten With pen and paper with clips Of pictures or ads from other sources or if you know someone who is a good artist, then he or she can create some origial drawings for your “zine”. If neatness is important, then create your zine using a publishing software or type it the old fashioned way on a type writer.
Make it interactive Adding things like crosswords and word scrambles to your printed “zine” will make it more interesting. Encourage the reader to look for clues or the answers in the rest of the “zine”.
Ad web elements If you do an “e-zine”, ad video and audio to your web site. Try to make the video and audio have something in common with your subject and not just anything to make it look cool.
