24 Hour Zine Thing

Get your typewriters, scissors, glue and colouring pens out folks... for July is International Zine Month, and the 24 Hour Zine Thing aims to get everyone involved in making their own zine... the only catch being the time-frame allowed for getting your project all stapled up and ready to go.


What they say...

"Thought up by Julie, and taking its cue from 24 Hour Comics Day and with much much much respect to Scott McCloud, the 24 Hour Zine Challenge asks zinesters to create a 24-page zine from conception to final product in 24 hours straight. Zines should be of suitable size and technical difficulty so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters.

Feeling adventurous? Make an oversized zine! With collage material, all typewritten, with a blockprinted cover! Coptic-stitch bound with silver thread!

It’s not called 24 Hour Zine Day because there is no set day on which you must complete the challenge. There’s only a deadline for when you need to get the zine finished and submitted: July 31, 2007."
