Question How to convert simple zine to kindle format

Greetings everyone.

I'd like to take a simple literary magazine and covert it into a format suitable for the kindle. Does anyone have lesson on this you could link me to? Thanks.

If you need more info: Each issue of the magazine is divided into four sections, each containing multiple works. At the end of each work is an author bio.
Each issue would also have a new image/photo for the cover, but that might be too much for me for the kindle version. Thanks again!

You mean a paper magazine? You need to scan it, and then use an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program to convert it to text.

No, sorry, that's not what I meant.

It is an online magazine.

I want to know how to program a table of contents. And what method to use.

If it's a website, a Calibre "recipe" should do the trick. Ask for details in the Calibre forum here at MR.
