ASU Zine Fest

Repeats every day until Sat Apr 03 2021.

This event last occurred April 3, 2021

Calling all zinesters and zinestresses!

Join the ASU Library and the Institute for Humanities Research, in conjunction with the opening of the zine collection at Hayden Library, for the inaugural ASU Zine Fest, a two-day virtual gathering of scholars, makers, students, collectors and anyone interested in zines (pronounced zeenes).

Far removed from the mainstream publishing scene, zines are alternative publications that come in many shapes and flavors. These unique DIY print materials invite readers to an intimate reading experience like no other, exploring creative self-expression and artistic freedom while stretching and redefining the perception of knowledge creation and dissemination in the digital age.

ASU Zine Fest will bring together two days of presentations that explore “Making on the Margins” (Day 1) and “DIY Voices of the Community” (Day 2), covering topics such as chronic illness, queerness, punk poetry, feminism, Native zine making, small press comics, empathy and more. 

The keynote presentation, “Margins: Writing as Magic-Making, Self-Publishing as a Literary Tradition,” by Ariel Gore, the founding editor and publisher of the Alternative Press award-winning magazine Hip Mama, is slated for 7 p.m., Friday, April 2.
