a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I went to brooklyn a couple of weeks ago for the first NYC Feminist Zine Fest.
I will go ahead and admit that during zine fests, I have typically had a hard time staying in one place. Last year for Philly Zine Fest, I was all up in some organizing nonsense, and spent a fair amount of time going around to trade as well. It was a good time, I met a lot of really cool people.

ENCHANTED TIMES #5 is planned for Apr/May 2012, focusing on Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast and Snow White. Seeking artwork, ads, and small text snippets. Currently at least one story slot still open. Does not need to directly relate to one of the above tales - tenuous links are fine, and other stories will be considered regardless.
ENCHANTED TIMES #6 is planned for Autumn 2012, focusing on the Steadfast Tin Soldier, Thumbelina and…Continue

Reading: Infinite Jest, You've Got A Friend In Pennsylvania #6
Listening to: Saves The Day like it's 2006 up in this bitch
