I’m heading over to the Tauranga Zinefest this weekend, and since it’s strictly a zinefest I’m not allowed to exhibit my fiction books. So, I figured this is a great opportunity to stretch my brain and fill my table with something else.
For a few weeks, I had a poetry and art zine in mind, but I barely made any progress and I know it sounds like a lame excuse, but I just wasn’t feeling inspired.
And then I had an idea. A number of people have been quite interested in the zine-making process, and some creative friends – Amanda, Inger and Karyn – have all taken the zine format into their own hands. I love being able to kick-start creativity!
Enter the DIY Zine Kit.
I like researching my ideas, and seeing what else is out there. I was surprised to find that there weren’t many zine kits available, so I had to resort primarily to my own imagination. It also made it hard to price so I’ve gone with materials + time = NZ$5 (plus shipping).
