Assignment #4 BRAINSORM THE ZINE

Now is the time! We need an idea. Please post 10 ideas by Wednesday so that we can start the 'zine brainstorm. You can include a concept description, what form it may take, etc. Not all your ideas need to be good.....but some of them should be!
AND- BE ON TIME! People have gotten lazy-coming to class late or on occasion, leaving early- please note that I count tardies as half an absence. We need to be in class working together to get this project finished and distributed by the end of the semester!
