Zines: Zine Resources

What is a zine?

Zines (pronounced ZEENS—short for magazines) are small-circulation, generally self-published work devoted to the arts, memoir, outsider perspectives, countercultural topics and other forms of creative expression. They are usually photocopied, handmade and highly visual.  They often include photographs, drawings, poetry and personal observations.
