This zine will be focused on Ace, Sabo and Luffy from One Piece.
✧ What is a side zine? ✧
A side zine is an additional zine with a complimentary theme that is sold alongside the main zine. We plan to create a digital-only side zine meant to compliment our main zine.

Content

✧ Will spoilers be allowed? ✧
Yes, spoilers will be allowed.
✧ Is ship content allowed? ✧
This zine will be ship free and wholly focused on the ASL trio.

Participation

✧ May I apply as a mod/contributor if I am under 18? ✧
No. All contributors must be 18+ at the time of application.
✧ May I apply for multiple positions? ✧
Yes, however you will only be accepted for one position. This will allow for more creators to join the zine!
✧ Can I share my work on social media? ✧
Creators may share and reproduce their works as they please, but we ask that you refrain from doing so until after all leftover sales have shipped.
✧ How will the moderators communicate with creators? ✧
Contributors will be notified of their acceptance through email and will receive a link to the zine’s official discord. All check-ins, final submissions, and updates will be sent through discord, so it is required for all contributors to have and/or create a discord.
✧ How will harassment be handled? ✧
The ASL Trio zine has a zero tolerance policy for harassment. If the moderation team notices instances of harassment or bullying (including the use of slurs, criticism of others for their beliefs, and general bullying), this is grounds to be removed from the zine and banned from all future projects. If other contributors are harassing you, we encourage you to speak up to one of the mods.

Financial & Production

✧ Will this zine be physical or digital? Will there be merchandise?✧
Pending the results of the interest check, we aim to create a zine available for both physical and digital purchase, and we would like to offer bundles also featuring a digital-only side zine, and varied digital and physical merchandise.
✧ Is this zine for profit or for charity? ✧
Sales permitting, the ASL zine will be for-profit. Our first priority will, of course, be paying for production and shipping of the zine and merchandise. Any profit on top of our in-built expenses will be divided evenly among contributors and moderators.
✧ How will contributors be compensated? ✧
All contributors are guaranteed a free digital bundle including both the main and side zine, and all merchandise that can be shared digitally.
Sales allowing, we will also be providing free physical contributor bundles with complimentary shipping.If we fall short financially, our next option would be to provide everyone with a physical copy of any product they contributed to free of charge.All contributors will also be provided with discount codes to ensure they can buy additional zines and merchandise at the cost of production.✧ Will there be leftover sales? ✧
Assuming we have leftover zines and/or merchandise available, we will be holding leftover sales and the dates will be announced through social media.

✧ PLEASE NOTE: This is a preliminary schedule and it will be filled out in more detail once the interest check has concluded. Dates may shift.
