PostSubject: Collective Zine    Fri Oct 18, 2013 7:40 am

I would like to create a small zine each month to accompany the monthly DIY Collective flyer.

It would be small, consisting of 6-panels, roughly 2.75"x4.25" each. When unfolded, the back of the zine would be a 8.5"x11" version of the monthly flyer. The idea is to give folks another reason to pick up the flyer each month and not just immediately forget about it or discard it. These could be printed cheaply and would require just about as much work as handbill flyers, and I think they might be more effective.

Since the zines would have limited space, I would like each issue to have a single topic. Each issue could all be written (or drawn) by a different individual, or a given month could be a collaboration. Of course, it should all be related to music, shows, art, other topics relevant to the Cleveland DIY Collective.

Some Ideas:

  • Discourse between individuals on a specific topic or event
  • An individual's (constructive) thoughts on music, art, zines, and the like.
  • Comics or other visual art
  • Record reviews
  • Show recaps
  • Share your enthusiasm for an upcoming show (perhaps you have a fun story about one of the touring bands, or about the last time they played Cleveland)
  • Tour journals
  • Tips for touring, booking shows, making Ramen Noodles in public places, finding Craigslist deals, or anything helpful to local artists.


Let me know if you'd like to be a part of this. I would like to have the first issue ready in time for the November calendar, so come at me with your ideas!

i'd love to be a part of this, maybe a feature on a local bands member's guitar/drum/bass rig would be cool

Absolutely, something like that sounds good! Write something up and send it my way! Just keep in mind that it basically needs to fit on one sheet of paper, but I can make the text small and cram as needed.
