Thursday September 11th - First Meeting of the Year
We all introduced ourselves and talked about our history with zine culture and what we are hoping to gain from the club.
Overview of Last Year
We went over our year with Sheridan Self Publishers last year, and talked about the different things we did and how great it was.

We went over things to expect for this year. Meetings will be approximately every other week at 6pm on Monday (room to be announce depending on activity). We will have guest speakers, field trips, film viewings, 3 group zine projects (maybe more) and of course Gettazine 2009 will take place in February. There is more, too! You're gonna love it! (see the next post for more details)
What is a Zine?
Brief history of zine culture. We discussed what a zine is, why people make zines, and why zines are great! We looked at some great examples of all the zines we got donated to us this summer!
