Class Zero

INTRO

Welcome to ZINE101!

In this introduction video, Lucy and Liam go over how ZINE101 will work, give you a preview of what we'll be covering, explain the Zine101 Scholarship and talk about what Wellington Zinefest is up to this year.

If you're not interested in the scholarship, our goals for the course, or our other Zinefest projects, feel free to skip this course and start properly tomorrow.

ASSIGNMENTS

There's no real assignments for the intro class, but we'd encourage you to take this time to check out our ZINE101 projects in more detail.

Please note that assignments are by no means mandatory - you can do as many or as few as you like. If you're going for the ZINE101 Scholarship, though, it's worthwhile trying to get as many done as you can.

SUBMITTING ASSIGNMENTS

Near the end of the course, we'll be opening up a form on this website for you to submit your assignments. To be considered for the Zine101 Scholarship, all of the assignments will be due by 5pm on Monday July 20.

NEWBIES MARKET

Our market's on Sunday July 19, from 12 til 4. Hit 'Going' on the Facebook Event if you'll make it, and maybe even book your stall.

 

If you wanted to help us promote the market (and maybe even your stall), you can also download the Newbies Market poster here, print it out and put it up at your work / home / ranch / estate etc.

 

If you'd like a stall but don't have zines yet (and have a tendency to procrastinate) booking a stall ahead of time can be a great way of forcing yourself to make zines.

Read more about the Newbies Market on the Newbies Market page.

ZINE101 SCHOLARSHIP

So Lucy and Liam talk through the scholarship on the introduction video, but we've also set up a whole page explaining what it is and how it works. Read up on the ZINE101 Scholarship page.

EXTRA CREDIT

 

Underneath each video we'll have links to things discussed in the tutorial. Reading / watching / clicking these is encouraged, but optional - there's a heap of stuff and we certainly wouldn't expect you to get through all of it!

 

If there's something that was touched on in one of the videos, and you'd like to find out more about, but hasn't been included in the Extra Credit section, let us know.
