In the past week, my english class has been discussing a lot about zines. What are zines you may ask? Well a zine is a smaller version of a magazine where one can express themselves through art, pictures, or even jokes. Zines are a simpler way to get the message through and are very helpful to address an issue. After reading the article on zines, I have become more knowledgeable about them as our class begins to discover more and even work with zines. This made me realize how although zines may be simple, they are a way of expressing one’s self and a way to get the message through to the audience in a fun and simple manner.
