What is a Zinefest?

First of all you might even wonder what a zine is! Well Cherry has lovingly put together a zine to explain. You might like to print it out and distribute it to your friends, here is a —> LINK and in brief:

” A zine (an abbreviation of fanzine or magazine) is most commonly a handmade, photocopied (or otherwise cheaply produced) small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images.”

So a zinefest brings together makers of zines to display and sell their work – zine prices tend to cover the cost of production and are a labour of love, not a for-profit business.

Often zinefests also include talks, displays and workshops.
