2021 Rainbow Zine

Our 2021 zine is currently being created and will feature a selection of entries to our writing competition, and artwork submitted by students.

2020 Rainbow Zine

Our 2020 zine is a celebration of shortlisted writing from our Writing Competition. You can download the zine here

To print the zine as a booklet, simply go to your ‘Print’ settings, select ‘Layout’ and select ‘Booklet’ (instructions may vary slightly depending on computer and printer models).

Please note that some pieces of writing contain instances of violence, homophboia/ biophobia/ transphobia, strong language and other themes that may be upsetting to some readers.

How to be part of our next zine:

We will be creating another vibrant zine for 2022, celebrating your creativity! Get involved in our writing competition or send us a book review of your favourite rainbow book.

If crafts are more your thing, then get out the art supplies and create a rainbow book-themed A5 page.

Just cut A4 paper in half, and let your imagination go on that half-sheet of paper. There are no limits, as long as you can scan the paper and send it to us, you can dream up whatever you want.

Some ideas/prompts for pages:

  • my favourite rainbow books
  • something creative about a favourite character
  • rainbow books I wish existed
  • make up a playlist to go along with a book
  • write fan fiction together (pass the paper style) with a friend

When you are done with your page(s), please scan them and e-mail them to us at outontheshelves@insideout.org.nz.
