Cut and Paste -- EIU Zine Symposium

Wednesday, 05 March, 2014 @ 01:00 PM - 05:00 PM | Cost:free

The Cut and Paste – EIU Zine Symposium will feature a round-table panel discussion with zine makers and academics; a zine production workshop in which participants can learn to make their own zine; and a documentary screening of the film “Zined!” (followed by a question-and-answer discussion with the panelists).

Zines are noncommercial, nonprofessional, small circulation magazines that are produced, published and distributed by the creators. They often focus on topics outside the status quo, such as musical tastes, subcultures, etc. Zines are described as being more than a personal letter, but less than a magazine. They are generally 10 to 40 pages long and are handmade, often through cut-and-paste methods.

Those who attend the March 5 symposium will learn more about zines from experts and then have a chance to practice creating their own. The event is free and open to the public, and no advance registration is required. Seating will be limited to the first 50 who arrive.
