2011 has been a great year for zines. The year was filled with zinesters all over the world working on the Revenge of Print 2011, and 21 participants successfully completed the 2011 24 Hour Zine Thing by sending in their completed zines, not to mention the many others that completed their zines for local challenges and events.
I already have a feeling 2012 will be just as great. Quimby’s in Chicago is already planning their First 24 Hour Zine Challenge for January 14th through January 15th. July is such a long time away so this is a great opportunity to ring in the new year with some other creative individuals and work on your first zine of 2012.
If you are a zine library, bookstore, distro, etc. and would like to start planning a 2012 24HZT event in your town, please keep in touch! I am more than happy to help in any way possible.
The 24 Hour Zine Challenge asks zinesters to create a 24-page zine
from conception to final product in 24 hours straight.
Zines should be of suitable size and technical difficulty
so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters.
