/zēn/ – noun (informal); a magazine, especially a fanzine
A zine is similar to a magazine, but usually smaller in size and publication, and of the DIY variety. Tomorrow night is the release of a new zine, Skullmore, which is catered towards the creatives of South Dakota. Skullmore is a collection of art, poetry, music, short stories and feature articles on galleries and businesses that support the arts community. The zine will feature full-color artwork and full-color covers, setting it apart from the traditional straight-from-the-copier zines. The five different covers feature the work of [from L-R in the picture below] Mercedes Nelson, Zach DeBoer, Marc Wagner, Lindy Wise, and Sharon Wagner-Larson.
Exposure Gallery and Studios will host a launch party for the zine in their back gallery from 6-9PM, which will exhibit original works featured in the first issue. This publication is thoughtful, cohesive, and FREE! Combined with the free beer that Exposure offers at their First Friday show, this could be a pretty cheap date for all your romantics out there.
The zine accepts all submissions related to the arts, and is curated by several individuals within the Skullmore family. For questions or content submissions, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
