Welcome 2 the 2018 NYC Feminist Zinefest!                                                                        Thank you for bringing your awesome energy & thoughts, ‘cos you make it happen.

This is the 6th year of the zinefest, since its founding in 2012 by Elvis Z. & Kate Angell. 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 – “Hey, I made a zine!” – of pure, home-cooked creativity…..of an emotion so big that it overwhelms you, and leaps out onto the pages of the booklet, as lifelike as it just was in your own chest. Zines are pure creation – all the choices, page layout/mix, everything – are 100% up to you.

We’ve even 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 voice of those who thrive beyond and outside of the margins. Where ideas that were erased from traditional media live on. We love what that space represents. We want to create more spaces that feel that way.
