Toronto Zine Library – Zine-Making

Love everything DIY? Want to share your passion of making with a larger audience? Why not make a zine about it! Zines, or fanzines – short for fan magazines – are a DIY medium where you’re in charge of everything from content to layout and all other aspects of production. We want to show you how easy it is to get started making zines so you can share your passion with other folks and build community. The Toronto Zine Library will bring examples of zines showing how others have made DIY manuals and used different production methods to help inspire you to start making your own. The TZL will also bring templates to help get you started to show you how easy it can be to make a zine, as well as help you focus on content. Not ready to make a zine about what you make? Why not make a zine about your experience at Makerfest – review exhibits, write down projects you want to follow up on and jot down contacts for future collaborations!

Hands-on activity at the Festival:
Participants will have the opportunity to get started (or even complete!) their own zine.
