All right, I know there's been a LOT of talk of starting a zine on these boards before, but I don't believe that it has ever happened. I'm going to start one, and I definately need helpers! (Have also posted this on the CrAftermath boards)

I imagine I would end up being the editor. It'd be a quarterly tri-annual zine, but I'm too busy come February & March to worry about a spring issue. I'm talking summer, with a publication Midsummer (June 21st).

I need to know who's going to be ready & willing to contribute, who wants to be involved in the running of it (need a co-editor &c), and who can generally lend a hand.

for content, it would need the following:

Tutorials/patterns (perhaps two or three per issue)

Reviews of craft shows or events you have been to recently, and upcoming ones.

Articles - Why you craft, what it means to you, going into business, how much you're looking forward to craftermath &c. I don't really know.

How-to one per issue. Different from tutorials as they are how to make things; this is more like HOW TO KNIT or HOW TO SEW &c, though admittedly there would be some overlap.

Product & business reviews - for example, why hobbycraft clasps are actually crap, good service from different online shops, etc.

Ads for your business are an option too, will talk more about that when I come to organise the thing!


Therefore, let me know if you're interested. Oh, and it needs a name. No idea what to call it, but it doesn't have to have the word "craft" in it. (E.g. I just saw a polaroid zine called "Instant Gratification.") The zine is called Shock Paper Scissors





Edited 18/6/06 to add:
Currently printing the first issue - Midsummer 2006 - which is due out on Wednesday (fingers crossed!). I am obviously not looking for any contributers now, however if you are interested in writing for the second issue - Autumn 2006, which will be out in October - just e-mail me at shockpaperscissors@gmail.com

For more information, just e-mail me at the above address. You will be able to buy copies via the Shock Paper Scissors Blog when it is released (June 21st 2006), just go to http://shockpaperscissors.blogspot.com

I'd love to contribute. I made a zine once before with a couple of friends, but no-one where I live really got the idea, (we left a lot in libraries/school resources and places where we generally went) and we just stopped because it was pointless because no-one ever read it. It is a lot of fun! As I said I would love to just generally lend a hand.

I'd love to contribute too. I could do tutorials or articles, I'm also quite good with photoshop graphics if you want any. How about "Craft Arckade" (the k in the middle just to make it look quirky). I just came up with that because of the ad. for "button arcade" on the sidebar he he.  Or "Craft Swagger" (completley random) or " Crafty Klutz" or "Immortal Imagines" (coz its things we've thought up and immortalized through 'publishing' them. Or what about "Dreamtime" (coz people might dream about the things inside) Or "Pinhead" (coz its for people thinking about pins and pinning things together). Im afraid I cant think of any more at the moment, but if I went into another room I might be able to get some more ideas.

hugs,

Caterina

The zine is due for release in ten days.

I've just started a blog for it at http://shockpaperscissors.blogspot.com. You'll be able to buy it from there, providing I finish it on time!
