You get 30 seconds with the zine

You pass the zine to your--we'll figure out the direction(s) in class, to avoid total chaos/minor frustration

(unless you want to hold onto it for one extra turn, in which case the zine that would have gone to you goes to the next person)

Repeat 10x (then check in to see if we want to do another round).


Take three minutes to write about what you saw and how zines feel to you.
