ZineWriMo 2022 part 4 + overview – journaling, snail mail, and an ode to Mawy

Today is the last day of ZineWriMo 2022 (Zine Writing Month) so I’d like to take you along and show you the ziney and arty parts of my life in the last 1,5 week.

First some announcements though… This Saturday December 3rd you can visit the temporary zine library / reading corner at the birthday party of Pardon zine collective at De Koer in Ghent. Some of my zines will be there to read or to buy as well. The next day on Sunday the 4th I’ll be tableing with my zines, postcards, and more at the Go Local winter craft market at Meubelfabriek in Ghent together with Wayfaring Moon Apothecaries. Hope to see you there! (By the way you can also get my zines etc from my webshop).

Now back to ZineWriMo and the creative stuff I did last week:

ZineWriMo 2022 part 1 – zine ideas, art grimoires, and where I find inspiration

In this blogpost, I’m sharing some creative projects that I worked on this week. For example there’s the ZineWriMo challenge (Zine Writing Month) in November. Even though I’m not following all the ZineWriMo prompts by Sea Green Zines, you should take a look at them because they are fun! Apart from zines, I’m going to show you what I made so far for the magickal grimoire / artjournal course by Molly Roberts

ZineWriMo plans

Zine Writing Month or ZineWriMo has begun two days ago! It lasts for the entire month of November. There is a facebookgroup and an official poster with prompts (also see below) if you want to participate. Of course you can also just make zines because that is the most important part of ZineWriMo. It’s not necessary to do all the prompts but they serve as nice ideas and inspiration I think. For example I like that the month starts off slowly with brainstorming and planning, which is what I’ve been doing (a bit) so far.

One thing I’d like to accomplish this November is finishing (and maybe printing?) the 5 mini-zines I’ve been working on for a while. See my previous post about witchy zines. By the way, I think November is as much a witchy and spooky month as October so let’s continue doing witchy stuff and making witchy zines! 🙂 It would be cool to make progress on Echotopia #2 and Confined #5 as well. Another plan I have is to occasionally blog about ZineWriMo, maybe on a weekly basis or so. I’m also looking forward to prompts like “creative space”, “tools of the zine trade”, “mini zine kit”, and “black out poetry” (I created a black out poem recently, inspired by Coin-Operated Press’ video and am ready for more!). It’s gonna be fun!

I’m curious to hear about your plans! Please share in the comments…
