check out the interviews I did at this year’s chicagozinefest!!!
My latest for red-wedge-feuilleton:
"What do vegan treats, political buttons and patches, intersectional feminists, and hundreds of pounds of ink and paper have in common? All were present at the 5th annual Chicago Zine Fest held at Columbia College March 14th through the 15th.
The event which was free and open to the public, featured 257 zine distros (collectives or individuals who self-publish for exposure rather than profit) and held a number of forums throughout the weekend including “Taking Up Space: We Do it for La Raza” by Brown & Proud Press, a Chicago based zine distro. And while zine topics, formats, and designs came in all variety of shapes, colors, and sizes (much like their creators), the most popular format seemed to still be the traditional 8.5 x 11 black & white photocopy format.”
