This week, we worked on creating our first and second drafts for our zine covers. The first draft was due on Monday and we critiqued it. I can confidently say that this was the first group critique that actually helped me. We all gave each other cool and warm feedback in order to make our second draft better. While we were in the group, we talked about what we wanted our zine to look like. We finally agreed on making a photography zine. We made a pinterest board together in which all of us added images that we could recreate. We’re actually planning on hanging out after school at someone’s house to take pictures. We also agreed on making it simple, but with strong words that would get our message across.
We had our second draft done by Thursday. Two ladies from MCASD came to give us critique on our zines. As a group, we had to create a google slides with our first and second draft. Most groups presented on Thursday, but since we ran out of time, we had to present on Friday. I actually wasn’t feeling well, and I was going to be absent that day, but I really wanted to get critique on my second draft by professionals. I have to admit that it was kind of rough at first because I worked so hard on it, but in the end it was worth it.
After going through all of this critique, I realized how important this project is. My group’s topic is feminism, and we have to take this very seriously. I’m really glad I’m being an advocate for this social justice topic.
