    F. A. Q.

    ▶ WHAT IS A ZINE?
    A zine, or fan magazine, is an unofficial collection of art and written works, compiled in book form.

    ▶ WHAT IS THE THEME FOR THIS ZINE?
    The theme for Sex & Whiskey is a bars & alcohol. We will be including both characters being bartenders and characters meeting at a bar.

    ▶ WILL THE ZINE BE PHYSICAL OR DIGITAL?
    There’s a lot of factors riding on this — we would love to do a physical zine but what with the global supply chain crisis, production costs are at an all-time high. Currently this will be discussed after the interest check period.

    ▶ IS THIS ZINE FOR PROFIT? FOR CHARTIY? A COMBINATION OF BOTH?
    This zine is a for-profit zine.

    ▶ HOW WILL CONTRIBUTORS BE COMPENSATED?
    Contributors will be compensated with at least a copy of the physical zine (should we go physical) and digital zine along with leftover proceeds. However, should profits allow, we will try our best to make sure contributors receive the full bundle along with any leftover profits.

    ▶ HOW MANY CONTRIBUTORS WILL YOU BE ACCEPTING? CAN I APPLY FOR MORE THAN ONE POSITION?
    The number of contributors will be decided after the interest check. However, if you are thinking of applying, you are welcome to apply for more than one contributing position if your schedule allows you to.

    ▶ WILL MODERATORS ALSO BE ALLOWED CONTRIBUTE?
    Mods are welcome to contribute pieces to the zine if their schedules allow it. A mod contributing to the zine will not affect the amount of contributors we accept.

    ▶ WHAT ARE THE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS?
    All contributors must be 18 years or older.
    Specific requirements for contributors will be released in apps.

    ▶ WHAT SHIPS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE ZINE?
    Any ships are allowed so long as the characters involved are 20 years or older (Japan's drinking age).

    ▶ HOW DO I CONTACT YOU IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS?
    If you have any questions that haven’t been answered here, feel free to contact us through Twitter!
