International Zine Month 2018 – Day 30 – IZM2018

Yesterday’s prompt:

Write a letter or post about your IZM2018

Oh, what a month it has been. I’m a bit stunned that we’re already to the end of it, to be honest.

This has been such a lovely IZM. We got a new prompts list from Alex Wrekk, and I felt a lot more prepared for it in general despite the fact that I had a lot more on than in previous years.

I didn’t quite do all the prompts, and I didn’t post all the days ON the days, but I’m still happy with how things went. I like how IZM incorporates so many facets of ‘zinedom’ from giving away and trading zines to zine libraries and distros. A hat tip to reviewers as well is quite nice. Haha.

The big highlight of the month for me definitely had to be the 24 hour zine. It was very last minute on my part but ended up being so much fun. I’m usually very, very competitive with myself, but I don’t even mind that I didn’t quite manage to do it in 24 hours simply because I enjoyed the process so much.

I enjoyed livestreaming, and I enjoyed taking page suggestions from whoever joined the livestream (who all get copies when they’re ready) because it turned it into a group project of sorts.

Part of me is a bit sad that it took me so long to finally make a 24 hour zine, but mostly I am glad that I was able to experience it during IZM but also share it with others.

I hope others have had a wonderful International Zine Month. I know it can mean a lot of emails coming into your inbox of blog posts, and it can feel like a lot to catch up on if you get behind. It’s all for the love of zines, however, and that is a wonderful thing.
