Zine Open Call

Zinesters have always been proactive in finding new ways to distribute their work from handing them out at gigs, swapping them at zinefests or creating online zines that readers can print off and make a physical copy of for themselves. Since we are still in lockdown that is the strategy we are using. 

As this open call coincides with Mental Health Awareness Week, we particularly welcome zines that focus on mental health in some form. But it can be on any topic you like.

We know your resources may be scarce, so here is a good video from Austin Kleon on how to make a zine made from a single sheet of A4 paper: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ab4O9SWNl9g

Create your zine and submit it to us as a PDF. When this is all over, we will print it and add to our excellent zine library. We will also feature a selection of submitted zines on our website. 

Send your submission with the subject line “Zine Open Call” to: library@gsa.ac.uk 

Stay well and keep making. We look forward to seeing your creations!
