    What is a ‘zine’?

    Zine, pronounced “Zeen”,  is “short for 'magazine'.

    Zines are an independent / self-published creation, often taking the form of a handmade booklet printed in small circulation. Zines can cover many subject matters and have historically been a platform for creative marginalised or isolated groups of people to express their ideas, document experiences, share DIY methods, and build communities.
