We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

We are happy to announce that the planning of Richmond Zine Fest for 2009 is underway! A date and venue have been confirmed! The Richmond Zine Fest will take place on November 6th from 7 PM til 11 PM and November 7th from 11 AM til 5 PM. This year the fest will be located in Gallery 5 at 200 West Marshall Street in the Jackson Ward neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia. We took into consideration all of the feedback that was given from the 2007 & 2008 zine fests and feel we made a really great decision with the new venue in reference to location, space, and mission.

When we were approached by Gallery 5 with interest into holding the zine fest in their facility, the idea was brought up to incorporate zines as an art into the First Friday Art Walk which is a largely popular event in Richmond. The evening of Friday November 6th will showcase zines in more of an exhibit setting. We also hope to include zine readings, music by zinesters, and a limited number of tablers on Friday evening. Saturday the 7th will be the zine fest you have grown to love in Richmond with many tablers, a lot of good networking, workshops, and fun.

More details will follow as we discover what 2009 has in store for the Richmond Zine Fest.

We know it is early but table registrations are OPEN!

Seriously, I wanna know about the weather too! I've been in Canada for the past 3 weeks and the weather has been freezing on a few of hte night and sometimes up to the 60's in the day! Traveling in October and November was a mess when deciding what clothes to pack!

I'm really excited about this too! I'll be there with bells on! What's the weather supposed to be like? I'm not sure what kind of clothes to pack. It's still short sleeve weather here in GA.
Well... Let's see... Saturday it was 80 and raining. Today it's supposed to be 54 and cloudy.

Richmond weather is super hard to predict. I suggest checking the weather online on maybe Wednesday or Thursday to see what Friday/Saturday is supposed bring.

As of now it is saying clear and lower 60s for the weekend.
If you donated your zine for our exhibit - you will probably see it in this lovely video blog done by MashUp for the Richmond Zine Fest:
