All ages allowed? Or 18+?: All ages! But if you're under 18, please check with your parents/guardians to make sure that swapping is okay!

- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES

Details of swap:
Hey zinesters! The 14-day zine is back!

The idea is simple - choose a theme, and produce a zine about it within 14 days (that includes shipping your zine out)! Zines can vary in length, size and content - it's all up to you! 

Sounds simple enough?

So send me your suggested themes, and I will collate them on a list and post them on this board!  At the end of the sign-up period, just choose a theme that you like best and run with it! Do suggest themes that are wide open to interpretation, like love, colour or music.. You get the idea. Smiley 

NOTE - You will have to send your zine to the other 9 participants in the swap. It shouldn't cost much even when shipping overseas, since zines are pretty light. I will also update the information of the participant's countries as we go along.

Have fun!

Edited to add: When the swap is over, I will be adding your feedback  with the following comments.
Good communication - You PMed me after you sent your zines out, or if you PMed me before early on that would be sending it out late.
Poor communication - You failed to do either, and I had to PM you to find out your swap status. 
Sent before deadline
Sent after deadline, with good communication
Sent after deadline, with poor comunication

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?  - Sorry, this is compulsory!
My suggested themes are:

Awesome! We only need 4 more people before sign-ups close.

I've updated the information of the swappers, so you should be able to see the 'in-progress' feedback in your profiles. Smiley
