What better time than the long cold winter for some self reflection, writing, research, and art? Come to the Wingnut on January 12th at 7pm during Open Hours to hang out, drink tea, eat cookies, and work on zines!
Zines are independent published documents frequently associated with DIY (Do It Yourself), punk, and various other subcultures. Some zines are comics, some are art, some have photos, some are personal stories, some are political, and some are informative. You can make your zine however you want to. They come in all shapes and sizes and styles.
There will be people available to give you advice and help with your zines. We will also have a variety of important zine materials available- from staplers to sharpies. We will also have the Approaching Apocalypse Zine Collection available for people to browse and get ideas from!
The Richmond Zine Fest won’t be until next fall, but making a zine now is a good way to stay a part of a zine community all year long!
