Frequently Asked Questions

What's a zine?
A zine, short for fanzine, is a collaborative fanwork usually centering around a media, character, or in this case, a ship. They usually include page illustrations, stories, and poems, and are sometimes partnered with physical merchandise.
How many contributors are you accepting?
We're planning to accept around 20 artists, 5 writers, and 5 merch artists.
Can contributors have multiple roles?
Applicants will be able to apply for more than one role, however we cannot guarantee you'll be accepted for both.
Will contributors receive compensation?
Should the zine break even, contributors will have the option to receive a physical copy of the zine and buy merch pieces at the production price.
The zine's Twitter account has existed since 2021, and a previous interest check was posted in July. What's up with that?The zine's production was cancelled in the latter half of 2021 because of the former co-Head Mod's personal life. The zine's current Head Mod, Crow, was a General Mod on the project before it was cancelled. They've gotten the consent from both of the former Head Mods to revive this project.More to come!

Hi everyone! I’m Ivy. It’s my first time participating in a Genshin zine (and as a mod for one too!). I hope my graphics would appease our two fire adepti before I either get fireballs thrown at me or spooked to death by a certain mischievous lady (not a bad way to die though since my corpse would be in good hands ¯\/(ツ)/¯)
