Making Zines // Reviewing Zines // Workshops & Activities
Enthusiasm is definitely a glass-half-full zine. The Norwich-based publication focuses mostly on the things which make its contributers happiest, such as letter writing, moving to new places and autumn. Written in a lighthearted, conversational style, the zine combines sunny monologues with more academic pieces exploring poetry, the problem of authenticity in rap music and G.K. Chesterton. Also included in the silver lining sweep are rainbows, stationery and things to love about the Isle of Man. But fear not, pessimists, there is also a “Negativity Corner” to dust off any blues. Here the writers reveal their top 5 turn-offs, for instance, men with only nine strands of chest hair. You have been warned.
