Feminism and the Politics of Anger: Zines

This guide was made to support zine making.

Read and Discuss

Introduce the QZAP or Portland Button Works zine you read in a breakout group for five minutes:

  • Why did you choose this zine?
  • What does the zine say about its creator--directly or indirectly?
  • Why do you think they chose a zine as their medium?
  • Are there graphics in the zine? Handwriting? Collages? Do they complement or complicate the text?
  • How does the zine make you feel?

Zine sample-palooza! Read/skim a zine for two minutes and then switch, for five rounds--last round, your choice of these zines.
