…for an awesome Zine. Submit to NOTTSZINE@GMAIL.COM
I am making a Zine. “What’s a Zine?” I hear you ask. Well…
Zines are self-published, small-circulation, often nonprofit books, papers, or websites. They usually deal with topics too controversial or niche for mainstream media, presented in an unpolished layout and unusual design.
I was so inspired by the two day course I took with Dizzy Ink (a Nottingham based Print Shop) that I knew I had to make my own. That was way back in February and you can read my pretty long, pretty detailed post here.
Anyway. Even though that was over four months ago I have been in the process of pulling something together. I did a call out on FB to friends and family, as well as Insta and Twitter. Quite a few people showed interest and I’ve had a submission already but I’m not gonna put it on hold for too much longer! I want it out before the end of summer (figuratively speaking, I’m well aware I live in England). So, here is my call out.
Are you a writer / poet / crafter / maker/ liberator / photographer / illustrator / printer / doodler / painter / creator?
Would you like to submit to the Zine? Then send it over! The theme is SHADOWS. Zine name TBC. I’m either gonna print it at home with my own paper and ink, proper DIY ZINE style or if it ends up more than a few pages in length then I’ll get it properly printed.
No Cost. No Loss.
DEADLINE – JUNE 18th
So the deadline is June 18th 2018. Then, with a little help from my friend, we’ll be putting all the work together in some sick fancy layout and PDFing it to print out.
Comment below if you’re interested and I can send you my details.
This is just the first Zine of many, I’m more than excited.
Don’t miss a fun, informal opportunity to get your work in print, on paper & being distributed in the hippest places around Nottingham.

Obviously WIKI has the most comprehensive guide to everything so worth looking at. So much so I think every student owes their degree to wiki.
