Velveteen Zine

The first ever zine that I produced was called Velveteen Zine. This zine was dedicated to encouraging, inspiring and publishing new and emerging poets. Velveteen Zine aimed to demystify poetry and engage new or young writers who may have previously dismissed poetry as a ‘hard’ genre to read or write within. Velveteen Zine also worked towards linking new writers with local writers’ resources and events. I produced 185 copies of Velveteen Zine, which were distributed at book, music and zine stores around Melbourne and sold for $3 each.
