Catalogue of Radical Zines

When it’s finished this page is hopefully going to be the most important on my blog, it comes down to why one writes, not only how you can improve the work you put out there, but the reasons you go into a project or event in the first place, and what ideas and tools you can bring with you to help you along the way.

I’m going to try and split it down into 3 categories but these are open to change:

  1. Having an experience in order to record events, (Studying)
    • This could be putting yourself on the ground to record research or media.
  2. Writing to record an event after the fact (Living well)
    • How to draw the truth out of a specific experience.
  3. Writing to serve a function, group together ideas (Practical Work)
    • How to draw together many experiences into one coherent idea, that can be used as a tool.

Any useful articles on the process can go into Creating Culture.
