To self-publish an own zine when you are still a student; is that possible? – Yes, of course!
Zine Club is a creative platform for creative, young people who love to write, illustrate and photograph and mainly to express themselves.
The zine is small (around 148 x 210 mm) and handily but full of texts, photos and illustrations. We like smaller zine-/or magazine – sizes because so you can take your paperwork always with you and read it in cafes or in the park (if the weather is good!)…
Some days ago we received the current issue of Zine Club because we luckily got the chance to make this review! 🙂 The theme of this issue is “I don’t know yet” – a special topic that can be discussed and expressed in different ways.
When you order a copy you will get a cute decorated envelope, a lovely note and some stickers! The shipping was also really fast (only a week).
The zine is really colourful, cute and rich in variety. – Interesting little texts and stories, self-experiences, and poems in change with music-playlists.
There are lots of art and illustrations, photographs, an editorial and collages, comics and advices (e.g. “Advice for the aspiring artist”). Also there is an interview included and we love the questions (they are special and not the typical stereotype-questions; something what we appreciate a lot).
Zine Club is a creatively open platform for students to publish their work and, most importantly, their OPINIONS, which are generally suppressed by popular media, society, exclusive publications, or plain fear.

For example Alyson asked: “What are three words that describe waht your childhood wasn’t and three words to describe what your semi-adulthood is?”
If you search usual interview-questions you won’t find them in this zine!

To summarize: Zine Club is a lovely-made publication. It’s like a diary with much texts and photos from different young people (mainly students) from over the world. You will be astounded how much you can put in such a little zine and we are sure you will flipping through the pages and read it again and again!
You can get your copy HERE. We had photographed so much more pages but we don’t want to take away the pleasure to discover the pages by yourself.
