Task 2B | Zine publications
Zines by definition are ” small magazines that are written by people who are not professional writers and that usually have stories about a particular subject” So in essence Zine production has until recently been the domain of specific interest groups and individuals. However with access to the internet and publishing software, zine production has broadened its user base to include semi professional and professional authors.
The thematic for each of the project components for this task is to be decided upon by you the student. Look to what interests and enthuses you, so that you have a level of personal investment in the final product.
