When did you start making zines ... and why?

Broke n’ Boujee was born out of a need for more accessible and affordable resources in the online D.I.Y communities. From being raised in low income communities, Anissa and Angie felt that they had learned many tricks throughout their growing up process that could benefit other folks who are also striving to thrive and live their best “boujee” life without that Boujee budget.

What is your favorite part of making zines?

Making zines is such an amazing outlet for both the maker and the reader. Publishing industries aren’t always so colorful or welcoming for most, and we believe zine making has created a whole other world for unique creators to come together and connect with one another, but also use zines as their own creative outlets! Getting an idea, writing it out, formatting it, and making it as perfect as possible to match our vision is always the best part. Our favorite part of making zines over all is definitely being able to have so many readers relate and love what we create. It makes us incredibly happy to know our work isn’t only helping us but it’s also helping and bringing lots of smiles to others!

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making zines?

CREATE!!! We pondered on creating a collective for a veeeery long time before launching “Broke n’ Boujee”; but now that it’s out, we totally wish it would’ve happened sooner! Our best advice is to go out there and do it!!! Like most zines we put out as a collective and individually, we’re not always sure if it’s a zine worth making and that self doubt always comes to play but it’s so important that we continue to create create create for ourselves, and of course it’s always nice when others enjoy it too. Don’t ever think your work isn’t good enough to put out there, it always is! Broke n’ Boujee wouldn’t be here if it hadn’t been for us finally taking that chance!
