SHINY PEOPLE is the zine about people. We are a quarterly zine published in June, October, January, and March.
VOLUME I: WARMTH will be published digitally and in a limited 50 issue print run in June 2017. The zine's goal is to focus on people, not products, and feature personal stories, fiction, photography, and music. Each zine will feature the following:
50 Full Color Pages
The volumes of SHINY PEOPLE will feature 50 full color 8.5 by 5.5in pages from front to back. The zine will feature long-form writing, photography, fiction, interviews, profiles, and a playlist. We want to share the things young people care about, and let them tell you why they matter. You can guarantee that each volume of SHINY PEOPLE will teach you something you didn't know before.
Interviews & Art From Up And Coming Talent
We want to share and highlight the voices of young people and provide a platform for new artists to have their work seen and heard. Each volume will feature a six page cover story, as well as a variety of profiles and interviews with young writers, artists, and musicians from around the world. We will also feature 2 pieces of fiction in each volume.
The zine will feature tons of fun extras each quarter. We will include quizzes, horoscopes, crosswords, and stickers in each zine! The sponsors of the zine can also elect to include things like stickers, postcards, and mini art prints in their sponsorships. We only accept sponsorships from organizations and small businesses who support young people, and all profits go towards paying our artists and writers!
