So far you’ve made a storyboard and drafted a grade proposal for your zine. We’ve also discussed different production techniques. You should have planned and addressed some of these in your proposals, especially:
- content (title, themes you’ll explore using writing, drawing, photography, etc.)
- materials (kind of paper, binding, ink, printing method, etc.)
- format (size of pages, # of total pages, layout/structure)
- circulation (# of copies and how you’ll distribute beyond the book fest)
But first let’s chat about logistics for that last item:
- Who’s offering to sell or give away zines at the Collingswood Bookfest? Who’s coming?
- Who needs help reproducing their zines?
Let’s also take some time to share your ideas, but also save the bulk of our time today for working on zines. I’ll respond to these before class on
Homework for next class
Keep working on your zine prototypes. You can begin to make copies or test prototypes in class on Thursday, but I’ll be here almost all day on Friday to help you produce and assemble your zines. Just let me know when you are planning to stop by. I’ll also need help planning our table, but we can talk more about that on Thursday.
