Where you can take The Case For Making Zines to your table with a cuppa and use the recourses to make zines (this way...) to the Gregson website.
The Nib Crib in Morecambe.
A space for all things writing: creating, reading, performing, listening, watching. (Click here...) for more info about their programme of events.
Zines and Zine Libraries:
A zine (pronounced 'zeen' as in magazine) is a small-circulation,
Do it Yourself booklet or magazine.
A zine can be about absolutely anything.
Zine Making: A no pressure opportunity for creativity, a chance to connect with others and to discover the many possibilities of Zines. Sparking ideas, doodling, drawing, collaging,& printing while sharing and exploring the complexities of being human.
Zine making can also be understood as a form of craftivism - a worldwide movement that sits at the intersection of craft and activism.
Zine reading: There are no distinctions between the readers and writers of zines, with zine reading encouraging zine writing, in a circular process of exchange and dialogue. The library enables people to deposit a zine, to borrow one and bring it back or to pass it on.
The Morecambe & Lancaster Zine Library was Created by:
Jill Anderson from the Mad Zines Research Project, CCrAMHP & Asylum magazine.
Charlotte Done, illustrator & director at Morecambe Community Riso Press.
