"A zine - pronounced zeen - derived from magazine - is an independently- or self-published booklet, often created by a single person. Zines are customarily created by physically cutting and gluing text and images together onto a master flat for photocopying, but it is also common to produce the master by typing and formatting pages on a computer. The end product is usually folded and stapled. Zines can be printed and bound in any manner. Offset printing is a relatively common alternative to photocopying, though there is some controversy among zine writers as to whether professionally printed products may be defined as zines." -ZineWiki.com
PHX Zine Fest is an annual event that includes a multitude of people from all over the nation who create a culmination of DIY small press publications, comics, photo books, art and the like. Arizona has a lot to offer and we want to show it off! The event is a meeting place for people to celebrate self-publishing and that have a deep interest in the art form. This event allows us to share our zines with other zinesters and with the public. We aim to make this a very fun and informational day that includes guest speakers, music and paper. Lots of paper.
…and taco trucks, of course. Because we like tacos.
