Zines I’ve read in 2022 (August) + Saturday’s zine gathering is cancelled!

First, a little announcement: the outdoors zine-making gathering that I’m organising tomorrow in Ghent will be cancelled due to rainy and chilly weather. Sorry about that! I hope to be able to organise one in October if the weather spirits are in our favour. 🙂 If you still want to do creative stuff tomorrow, I can recommend going to Girls Go BOOM’s button-making workshop at the Meubelfabriek!

I guess tomorrow will be more indoors zine-reading than outdoors zine-making weather… So here are some recommendations: Last month I read a bunch of lovely zines again. This time they talked about exciting topics such as music, herb foraging, graveyards, ageism, aromantic plants, and ghost towns, and featured comics, collages, photography, travel stories, interviews, and more… Discover them all here:

Zines I’ve read in 2022 (February)

Curious about which zines I’ve read in February? Here you can see them all… They include perzines (with a focus on autobiographical content), artzines (with a focus on the artwork / visual aspect), colourful mini-zines* (one-page folded booklets), activist zines, and even a 24 hour zine (I love those!) with a prompt from yours truly. The zines contain collages, drawings, digital art, tetra pack prints, daily photos with personal stories, poetry, research, and a variety of other writings and artwork. They talk about the history of witch persecutions and its relation to the rise of capitalism and patriarchy, “wine moms” aka “cis-core” (or white middleclass cis norms), herbs for reproductive care, food, the power of community, daily life in the pandemic, cassette tapes, anxiety for climate change, dinosaurs, translated and illustrated Greek/English/Spanish feminist and queer slogans, (family) trees, and more… I think this is a super inspiring collection of zines, showing the great diversity and endless possibilities of this DIY media format. ❤

*By the way, it’s Mini Zine March this month!
