In celebration of the Zinester's Guide to NYC, St. Mark's Bookshop is hosting the ZG2NYC Zine-vasion, a zine-centric event featuring editor Ayun Halliday (The East Village Inky, and several of the guidebook's contributors)
How do you make a zine?
Why do you make a zine?
How did you get into zine-making in the first place?
What other zines do you read?
Where can I get my zine photocopied?
...How are zines distributed?
Where are zines reviewed?
Where can you go to buy zines?
How do you pronounce it?
And how can I find out more?
Be you a seasoned vet, a zi-curious newbie, or an unrelated browser in the right place at the right time, we invite you to join the contributors to the Zinester's Guide to NYC for a reading, Q and A, and open consignment session.
Bring three copies of your zine if you'd like St. Mark's Bookshop to sell it on a consignment basis.
And while you're there, don't forget to pick up (more than one) copy of The Zinester's Guide to NYC - an invaluable resource for New Yorkers, visitors, and art supply requiring, photocopying, bookstore haunting, highly participatory individuals of a low budget, zinely bent!

Ayun Halliday, The East Village Inky
Andria Alefhi, We'll Never Have Paris
Melissa Bastian, Anywhere I Lay My Head
Leslie Henkel (aka Dear Drunk Girl) The Tight Pantsy Drew Mysteries
