This meeting and all subsequent meetings will be generally facilitated by Amanda Mills (Murmur). She will also assist in coordinating the zine exhibit and panel. Amanda Mills’ educational background is in English Rhetoric. She has been involved in zine-making since elementary school, including an internship with the Denver Zine Library, teaching a weekly class on zine-making at her high school, forming the Atlanta Zine Library in college, and organizing the Atlanta Zine Fest. Her current project, Murmur, is a community resource for DIY and ephemeral media.

Fanzines with Brooke Hatfield.
Tuesday, April 28th.
5 - 6:30 PM
Must be enrolled (can enroll at any time, max 12).

At this point, we have covered zine pagination and binding, narratives, and design. This session will cover a popular aspect of zine culture: fanzines. Facilitator Brooke Hatfield is an illustrator and writer. She has served on the board for Living Walls and is active in the Atlanta literary scene. Her fanzine on Flannery O’Connor was featured in Creative Loafing for its design, collaborative content, and humor. She is currently working on a Eudora Welty fanzine. Brooke will talk about her zine-making process, including how she uses art and illustration to convey fandom.

We will then look at examples of fanzines from the Atlanta Zine Library. When commercial press isn’t covering a certain cultural phenomena, fanzines can be used to spread information. Attendees are encouraged to share things that stand out to them from the example zines. Using a prompt, everyone--including facilitators--will have time for a free-write. We will talk about what it means to create a safe space for sharing. Attendees will then share their work for feedback and encouragement. The general facilitator, Amanda, will discuss the expectation that each attendee brings their zine drafts from home to share. Towards the end of camp, attendees will select a zine to be featured in an upcoming zine exhibit. Each draft zine will, ideally, reflect the previous weeks’ session. Everyone, including the general facilitator (Amanda), will share their drafts. This format will model the importance of dialogue and community in zine-making.
