Join us in the panel room of the Phx Zine Fest at 3:00 - 3:45 for Get Paid: How to Distro Your Work with Charissa Lucille of Wasted Ink Zine Distro.
You’ve done the hard part of creating a unique and wonderful zine. Charissa aims to answer the “NOW WHAT?” question. After opening and running a distro for almost three years, she has some tips and tricks on how to send your work to different distros and libraries across the United States. She’ll provide a list of different zine distros and what to expect while selling your work. She will answer questions about how to price items, how often to check in with a distro, and how to best set yourself up for success.
