I was thinking of having a theme, any thoughts?
We will send to each person participating so the zine should be small enough so that you can pay minimum postage to send it. You will have until the end of August to make and send.
Interested? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject title 'Handmade Zine Swap', let me know your name, blog and postal address. You have until Sunday to sign up then i will send out info to all taking part.
Edit to add: A zine is a mini magazine just like Mixtape Zine. Here is a more indepth answer. You will make enough of your zine to be able to send to each participant and they will be handmade. By handmade i mean, done by hand by you, either handwritten or drawn, typed, cut and paste, photocopied, using your computer if you wish, anything goes as long as you have done it yourself. Each zine should be the same so you could make one then photocopy 10 copies to post out. Add stuff to them, stick little things inside, secret notes, envelopes, fold out pictures etc. It can be any size you wish but remember you have to post them out, personally i'm going to go small enough to fit inside a small envelope like the size of a greeting card.
This swap is Worldwide so you MUST be willing to post overseas. I'm thinking maybe 10 participants maximum but if there are more i can arrange small groups to post to one another.
I hope this clarifies things. Let me know if you have any other questions and i will answer them here or in the comments.
I will show some zines over the next few days and share some links that may be useful ofr making your zines.
