The Zine Scene
Join members of the New England Book Artists for hands-on zine making at The Zine Scene workshop. Learn tips and tricks for spontaneous zine making. All skill levels welcome, and all materials provided.
Zines are micro-magazines that are self-published, small editions, produced by artists, writers, and fans of personally chosen content. Originating in the 1940s and ’50s as “fanzines” by starstruck fans as a means of expressing of their interests in celebrities of the time, they were quickly embraced by social and political movements to provide an inexpensive, low-tech tool to support their campaigns. The current zine scene continues to expand with more and more genres, from “perzines” (personal and memoir-based zines) to body-positive zines, cat zines, and DIY zines that share zinesters’ knowledge of art techniques, survival skills, tips for better living, and more.
