A guide to zines, DIY/homemade publications which allow folks to tell their own stories or share information. Topics include mental health, disability, queerness, race and racism, sexual assault, political topics, recipes, and much more.

Types of Zines

Zines can be created in a variety of sizes, styles, and form. They can feature art, photography, poetry, writing, drawing/painting, or collage/cut+paste. Content in zines can cover personal stories (perzines), political topics, activism, art, and accessible information. While this list is by no means exhaustive, it covers some different genres and movements in zine history.
