ZzZzZines!





“inter•punct is putting together a project discussing emergent and often radical issues latent in our educational environment that we feel are far too absent from the discourse around us. Following the footsteps of pamphlet architecture, clip-stamp-fold, and ‘a few zines’ we are curating a collection of student produced zines.

While inter•punct will edit and curate the collection, we invite you to be part of this process. Our ultimate goal is to bring to the forefront the rarely recognized potential in the creation of a laidback small format publication and hopefully prove you, the author, with a space to reflect, a sense of empowerment, and the creation of school-wide discourse that is both creative and inclusive.

Wondering what to make? We’re not going to tell you! You have complete creative freedom. Here are the two things we ask:

- Consider the format of a single 8.5 x 11 or 11 x 17 sheet, front and back. Google  “zine formats” for inspiration!
- Reflect in some manner on your exprience in the school - with a project, with a professor, in the field, etc. Just keep in mind the overarching theme is: Pedagogy.

You could make a comic strip, a newspaper, a photo-essay, a text-essay, a musical score, a poem, a sketch, a timeline, a screenplay - you get the picture. Feel free to be brutally honest (anonymous submissions will be respected) or even fictitious!”

For some inspiration please look at the exhibits we cited earlier, links to be found below.
