Hello and happy Thursday, zine friends. I hope this post finds you well and enjoying your week. It started out a bit weary dreary here, but it has fined up into a glorious day. A glorious day for…
Connect with Other Zinemakers
I’ve said it many, many times: One of the things I love most about zines is the zine community. I love how so many different people from so many different walks of life can all find each other, connect, and learn about things they may not have otherwise learned about. There are a lot of negatives to be said about social media, but this is definitely one of the good points. There are a lot of ways to see what other zine creators are creating this ZineWriMo.
On Instagram, I have been using the #zinewrimo and #zinewrimo2020 hashtags on my posts. I’m not active on Twitter, but I’m sure you can use those there as well.
Facebook has quite a few different options, starting with the Zine Love Page.
There are groups as well, including one group just for ZineWriMo.
Zines Australia is a stop for Australian zinemakers (or, perhaps, anyone looking to connect with Aussies?).
Zines A Go Go is a zine group that has been going for a long time and will, with any luck, keep going for a long time to come.
There’s also the Zine Club.
We Make Zines is the former Ning where I got started on my zine journey many years ago. It may look different, but oh the nostalgia…
Also be sure to check out the other participants below (and let me know if you’re joining in and would like to be added to the list)!
Have I missed any zine spaces? Please let me know.
