If “zine fest” conjures up images of sad card tables stacked with badly Xeroxed, folded-and-stapled office paper, shake your head HARD to clear out the cobwebs; this two-day celebration will be nothing like that. Instead, works on paper (and even textiles) by almost 20 local artists, poets and writers will be displayed for ogling and offered for sale.

Artists like David Hoskins, Justin Luper, Adam LaVigne, Brandon Geurts and Tara Atefi will be cheek-by-jowl with established local zines like Is It Over Yet? and Tittie-Thyme; local live reading series Functionally Literate and Literocalypse will be on hand, as will scene sites Always Nothing and the Vinyl Warhol; and workshops on screenprinting, button-making and even how to make your own deodorant (yes) pop up on Friday. If you’ve always dreamed of achieving stardom and wealth in the exciting world of DIY publications, here’s your big chance.
