  • Share a digital copies
  • Ask about stocking in a local book, record, or coffee shop.

Zine Fests

Zine festivals are a great way to get involved with your local DIY community. Zines are typically sold or traded along with art and other media. Depending on the fest, other events will coincide such as workshops, speaker panels, readings, and more.
