Overall, the paper format prevails in the zine world, but you will find an increasing number of digitized or born-digital zines on the Internet. Some paper or print zines originate in the digital world. I can make a print zine using Word, Google Slides, Canva, and even Powerpoint.
For this activity, you'll use Word to make a zine designed to be downloaded, printed, folded, and held in your hands. In other words, we'll use technology to make an "analog" paper booklet, a zine.
Please note that your Word zine will NOT be readable online. On your screen, the page numbers will appear out of order. When your zine is printed, the pages will fall into place.
You'll meet with Susan and Abby, Pace University librarians, on Wednesday, and they'll tell you more about zines, the Pace Zine Library, and your assignment. On Thursday you'll make your zine. You'll save it as a PDF and upload to a shared folder (details on Wednesday). Then the Pace copy center will print copies for you, and you'll discuss and exchange your self-published zines on Friday.
