Read and Discuss

Read a zine for two minutes. Write down your answer to these questions for one minute:

  • What kind of person do you think the author is? Would you want to be friends with them?
  • Are there graphics in the zine? Handwriting? Collages? How do they make you feel?
  • Why do you think the person made a zine (instead of publishing a book, posting to Instagram, or writing a letter)?
