I think I'd like to join. I was inspired by the videos (I'd actually seen the Jane Devenport one sometime ago and want to make one). So, I made a zine this morning but it turned out more like a journal with large, lined areas for someone to write in and art in the corners.
Should I write in the zine or add poetry, more art, etc., or let the receiver make it about them?
Also, I get that we make 3 copies, cut and pre-fold, but how do we let the receiver know which page is front, back, 3, 4, etc?

I'm with blue sky hare. I have one started but have blank sections I'm not sure what to do with. So, i could leave them for receiver to journal or doodle. Still sitting on this.
I do need to watch the send in date before I commit though...

I think my main question is "I get that we make 3 copies, cut and pre-fold, but how do we let the receiver know which page is front, back, 3, 4, etc?"
Does anyone have an answer?

Hi BluSkyHare, although I sent mine already folded like a book, I think if you just pre-fold the zines the receiver will be able to fold it up the right way since the folds will be in the correct direction. Also, the back of the zine should have our information on it like our name, the name of the swap and such. You might try prefolding it first to see how easy it is to assemble. It was easier for me to just send them folded up as a zine and ready to read. Hope that helps.

Thanks, fairydust! I thought I read somewhere in the instructions that we should mail with only one or two folds so that they would fit in the envelope, and that the maker's info should be on the "blank" side of the paper. I'm probably just overthinking this!

Does anyone have an answer?
If your zine is pre-folded, the receiver will know which way to fold it and the front page will be obvious.

Also, your zine will have three double-page spreads that are obviously the middle of the book, so there are only two single pages that could possibly be the front cover. If they try to put the back cover as the front cover, it usually becomes clear that the book doesn't make sense in that order.

Blueskyhare, I did pay a little extra for postage since my envelope was a bit bulky. Next time I will try putting them in the envelope a different way. Hope you sign up!

My zine in the last swap was a travel zine. I used old maps and memorabilia like postage stamps,park passes and stuff from brochures. The zine is in my gallery if anyone wants to see it.
I'm going to try to get my zines for this swap out today. They've been finished for a while but I've not had time to fold and mail. My sisters and I are dealing with a home hospice situation as my 91 yo mother has brain cancer. They are covering today so I can should be able to get them out.

Mesektet,

I am very sorry, but life has become quite overwhelmed right now and I must withdraw from the swap at this time. I definitely will join again if you host a round 3.

PHEW! Here to get the mailing address as I'm running a bit behind and thought the last day to mail was Oct 17, ahem, still a newby as to how these swap deadlines work. Anywhoo.. glad I double checked, not as late as I thought!
Mailing mine, and used a standard envelope with the zines prefolded, hoping they arrive quicker than last time(took nearly a month!).

Sorry to see you go, theweavershand, Jaxsmom, and TrinaLD. I totally understand about life getting in the way. Hopefully, I'll run another zine swap in the future and you can participate.

Mesektet, I'm concerned about finishing and mailing on time so unfortunately, I'm going to have to withdraw.

Hope to catch another swap!
