Wait, What’s a Zine?
A zine is a self-published, non-commercial print-work that is typically produced in small, limited batches. Zines are created and bound in many DIY ways, but traditionally editions are easily reproduced-often by crafting an original "master flat," and then photocopying, folding, and stapling the pages into simple pamphlets. Zines may also be sewn, taped, glued-or even exist in unbound and other non-folio formats. The main rule is that there are no rules!
A zine (pronounced “zeen” like in “magazine”) is a self-published, DIY, non-commercial print work typically produced in small batches. Originating from sci-fi “fanzines” of the '70s, zines have been used to express passion about subcultures, to share personal and funny stories, to support political and activist movements, and more. Zines can be on any subject of interest to their creator.
I Have a Zine I Want in the Library!
We want our zine collection to highlight local creators as much as possible, especially patrons of GPL! We’re happy to take any zine that meets our collection policy for zines. If you have a zine you’d like to see displayed, read, and circulated throughout Central/Western Massachusetts, please use this form below to submit information about your work:
