Zines are an important part of Portland's literary heritage, and we don't want that history to be lost! This special series of events features long-time Portland zine-creators and enthusiasts discussing zine history and sharing their experiences with independent publishing and with promoting homegrown literature in Portland.
We invite Portland zinesters new and old as well as zine readers and local culture enthusiasts to come reminisce, discuss and celebrate our culture!
