Welcome to the 2019 NYC Feminist Zinefest!    
Thank you for bringing your awesome energy & thoughts, ‘cos you make it happen.

This is the 7th year of the zinefest, since it was started up in 2012. It’s been the inspiration for 4 other incredible zinefests – Massachusetts Feminist Zinefest (2018), Philly Feminist Zinefest (2012 + 2014), Feminist Zinefest Pittsburgh (2015), and Hamilton Zine Fair (2014, 2015, and 2016).

Why a feminist zinefest?

——-___———–> > > > ? ?   Why not a feminist zinefest!?   🙂 🙂 <<—————–

Zines are like the rush of vitality – of pure, home-cooked creativity…..of an emotion so big that it overwhelms you, leaping across pages of a booklet, as real as it was in your own chest. Zines are pure creation – all the choices, page layout/mix, everything – are 100% up to you.

We’ve seen zines with stickers all over ’em, with (real) toenail clippings inside (!), with Bible verses & then pages from someone’s diary…Zines can live forever, they tap into strange, electric power – the deeply personal, spit up into a collaged, unholy meld of inside & outside, private thoughts and public space. We love ’em because they don’t look “perfect,” the late-night mad scribblings, everything you want to say but somehow sounds better written down…

Zines are the voices of those who thrive beyond and outside of the margins. Where ideas erased from traditional media live on. We love what that space represents. We want to create more spaces that feel that way.
