Project and Program Profile
Zines, or small, self-published magazines, have emerged from counterculture origins to gain popularity in recent years as a tool for democratizing writing in the classroom and community. This essay shares reflections on a campuscommunity zinemaking project at the University of Central Arkansas called the CitiZINE Project, which focused on creating opportunities for university students, faculty, and staff as well as local community members to engage in political zinemaking following the 2016 US presidential election and inauguration.
