At least 2 Wingnuts will be reading from their zines at this event!!!!

Join the organizers of the Richmond Zine Fest (coming to you for the 5th consecutive year in October of 2011) for a night of sharing, laughing, and inspiration.

10pm on Thursday May 12th at Sprout, located at 1 North Morris Street in the Fan.

Sprout is graciously hosting this event, and will be open with beverages and snacks for sale.

We are having people read from their zines, because last year’s Zine Reading Potluck before the Zine fest was so much fun!
The Richmond Zine Fest is excited about the growing Zine Community in RVA.

We are looking for a variety of readers- from poems, to political, to anecdotal or personal, to whatever you have got. We will update this event with a list of confirmed readers over the coming week. Please email the zine fest if you want to read at:

The Zine Reading potluck at the Wingnut on Friday October 15th was a huge success. There were around 30 people in attendance and we heard from 7 or 8 different zinesters. 2 out of town zinesters as well as people old and new to Richmond read. Some of the readings were entertaining, some personal, some poetry, some spoken word, and some very political. They represented a good  mix of the types and content of zines. There were many yummy dishes- from vegan muffins to mac n ‘cheese’ to fake bologna sandwhiches.

It was really relaxing and pleasant to share food and stories with so many nice people. The Zine Fest organizers in attendance were really excited about the turnout. We hope this is just the beginning of the development of a supportive and dynamic zine community in Richmond.

It’s official! The 2010 Richmond Zine Fest will be on October the 16th at the Gay Community Center of Richmond from 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM! This is an all-ages free event to attend!! If you wish to rent a table please visit the registration section of our page. Also, the evening of October 15th we will be having a zine reading potluck at the Wingnut! So please get in touch with us if you would like to read your work to lots of fanzine fans the evening before the fest.
