All of that will come together in just awhile, the organizers are rallying it all.

BREAKING NEWS: PHILLY ZINE FEST @ THE ROTUNDA SUNDAY NOVEMBER 13th! I heard it straight from the scheduler at the Rotunda... The secret is out, Philly!

When were they going to tell us?! Any closer to the date, I may have had other plans... So, where do we sign up?!

I emailed the organizers of Philly Zine Fest a couple months ago and have yet to hear anything. If it's not happening but you do end up putting something together, my friend and I (we run Electric Windmill) would love to table at the event! We're in Seattle right now but will be heading back east (we're originally from NJ), and if the event is anytime after late September then we'd be in! Also, I may be able to help with planning and set up and stuff. Depends on how soon we get back there, not sure what stops yet we'll be making on the way. Possibly Albuquerque Zine Fest, Twin Cities Zine Fest, definitely SF Zine Fest, and possibly Handmade & Bound in Nashville.


It's awesome that there are people in Philly who still want to see a fest happen! I thought it was so strange I couldn't find anything anywhere about a 2011 event, yet I heard so many good things about last year.

i'm jumping on this bandwagon to say that i'm interested in helping plan another zine get-together/fest in philly! i'm from lancaster & currently living in baltimore, but i totally believe PA needs more zine events!

Hey Philly Zinesters,

I was alseep just now and awoke with a amazing thought. It doesnt look like there is a Philly Zine Fest planned for this year so why dont we in the Philadelphia area have one of our own (not named Philly Zine Fest)?! Why wait to see if others are going to organize what we can organize ourselves?! I mean, there are 27 members. It doesnt have to be anything big. I am sure we can come up with something... I just dont want the Philly zine scene to die! Philly Zine fest is what got me interested in zines, I do not want to limit others from such a wonderful experience!

I haven't heard anything, but i'd love to be in a zinester group!!

Anyone know about Philly Zine Fest 2011? My attendence at the one last year is the whole reason I fell in love with zines. There has  to be one this year! Also, does anyone want to start a zine writing group that meets in person somewhere in Philadelphia? We can go to a coffee shop, talk about what we are working on.

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #4 in finished! inspired by all of the hard work put into the latest issue of hoax as well as the fact that i graduated from college today (and don’t know when i could print zines next), i decided to overexert myself and put out a new issue of my perzine in under 2 days. its fairly short at 20 pages & 1/4 size, but is super text-heavy! #4 is about actively staying single while queer and some reflections on coming out as trans* (particularly in the zine community). $2 US // $3 international (includes shipping), or trade! please e-mail youvegotafriendinpa(at)gmail(dot)com or click here for more info!
