We are a quarterly zine- soon to be monthly- that features artwork, writing, photography, etc. by contributors from all around the world. Each issue centers around a different theme. Our zines our very interactive, including scannable QR codes, crossword puzzles, coloring sheets, and scannable codes that lead to Spotify playlists, made specifically for each issue!
I make photography zines. It is my way of organizing things I observe through deep appreciation of life on Earth!
My zine will introduce about the similarities between two cities: Tokyo and Portland, focusing on sustainable lifestyles I have experienced.
By sharing 12 keywords and photos to describe each similarities, you would realize how similar they are, even though these cities are located far across the pacific ocean.
I wish it brings you an affinity and interests for Asian cities and people who live there.
Price: $10.00 plus shipping

I'm working on my first zine and would love the guidance and just opportunity to be in the presence of other creators! My zine is a physical manifestation of the heartbreak I was navigating post-breakup. It's really best summarized as a journal/piece of my heart that I want to share (albeit timidly because vulnerability is scary! but usually always worth it <3 )
,I create zines that document the ups, downs, and hilarious moments in life. My zines are exclusively one page mini zines that I sell in themed bundles such as Art Life, Quarantine Life, Mom Life, etc. My mini zines are all micro sized comics that many find instantly relatable.
I try and create the sort of zines that I like to read: tender and honest and sorta rambling perzines, witchy zines full of spells, and DIY zines that teach skills.
In addition to creating my own zines, I also read and review the zines of others on instagram and youtube.
Canto Cutie is a juried art and literature zine run by three bilingual English and Cantonese cuties. Vermont-based Katherine Leung founded and curates the zine. Austin-based artist Tsz Kam is an editor. G is the Chinese translator. Canto Cutie is a place for artists and writers across the diaspora to collaborate and showcase their work.
Canto Cutie is a special space to celebrate our linguistic minority and pride. Our diverse diaspora has ties to Hong Kong, Singapore, Southern China, Taiwan, and beyond. Immigration, colonialism, and current civil unrest continues to play a role in our creative work. Canto Cutie is independently published in the United States and caters to a bilingual English and Cantonese speaking audience.
Intentionally slowing down, I deconstruct generational trauma as a first generation Asian American woman. I believe in decolonizing systems of oppression that define, restrict, and police our minds and bodies. My zines rediscover unapologetic ways to transform space for yourself in hopes of nurturing inner growth
My zines are mainly art and poetry collages. I enjoy writing about my culture, family and history.
I run ZuZu Cartoons! I mainly publish comics or prose with illustrations. My topics are super wide-range, and I consider zines a way to get my thoughts or smaller projects out there. I do everything from horror to autobiographical stuff, and most of my work has some metaphor behind it, even if it's a little silly. Morning Routine, my mostly-silent black-and-white piece, has a lot of allegory for anxiety, and I'm planning to release a new zine, My Imaginary Friends Weren't Nice, for PZF :) That one deals with intrusive thoughts.
Worried About Rent (WAR) combats the deep-rooted racial and economic exploitation in the Valley of the Sun, that now manifests as gentrification and displacement, by building solidarity with our neighbors. We believe that everyone deserves a roof over their head regardless of their financial circumstances, and we're organizing to fight for it.
We formed in 2020 and are made up of volunteers and led by tenants!
I am a new start up in Bisbee, AZ. I started Wolfe Den Studio in February 2021. I do graphic design, illustration, and comics. I've been making zines and distributing them for free since 2016. I've recently acquired a screen printing machine and plan to make homemade prints, t-shirts, and other merch. I'm very new to the scene, and I am networking and getting into other niches as well.
Which Witch introduces the concept of secular witchcraft and dives deeper into a few particular practices that they can learn more about and see if they identify with. Each entry includes some history about the practice, indicators on why that you might be interested in this particular path and how it might work out for you, and also recommended readings to further their studies.
Tucson Zine Fest represents a variety of creators from the Old Pueblo who make paper art. We will feature self-published zines, prints, and independent comic books. We strive to feature work from under-represented groups throughout the Southwest.
I make comics, zines, stickers, bookmarks, and prints! My comics are "The Sixth World", which is about Indigenous Futurism, and "Cat Witch" a fantasy lesbian story. My zines are "Monstrous Zine Volume 1" and "2", and they're black and white illustrations of monsters. As for the stickers and bookmarks, they feature more of my art, and the prints as well.
I have made different types of zines over the years, but most of them contain personal writings of one kind of another. At PZF I'm selling all issues (#1-7) of my Cat Party! zine series, which is an anthology of stories, essays, and comics about cats. I would also offer the Kytchyn Witche Guide to Natural Living, a zine I wrote with my friend Nadine. It contains recipes for DIY body care and household cleaning products as well as gardening advice.
Susurrate Press is an independent small press publishing a wide array of works including short run artist books, (fan)zines, literary fiction, non-fiction and poetry. They primarily produce work surrounding the idea of ephemeral and uniquely shared experiences, also working to elevate marginalized voices wherever possible. Lately, they have been particularly interested in content having to do with the ambient passage of time and the surreal nature of progress in a visual sense.
Susurrate Press also produces fan-bindings on a limited basis for authors, illustrators and readers who want personal copies of their works printed.
Stoner Zines is run by October Stoner, a queer, trans/nonbinary, autistic/neurodivergent, jewish, and disabled artist, zinester, and tattooer. Hirs zines focus on all those identities, with a few fun and random perzines and fanzines thrown in. It is really passionate about DIY culture and accessible education. The first zine that he made was "Transvestia" an ongoing series (now on a hiatus) that features voices of trans/nonbinary people around the world. The zine now have 15 (soon to be 16) issues published! With its increasing physical disabilities and moving into working more, ze has not had much time to create lately, but hopes that the 2021 PHX zine fest will help spark some more zines/creativity!
Through Shut Eye Press, I make zines, artists' books, prints, and literary objects using letterpress, Riso, etching, and other techniques. Shut Eye was born and still operates out of greater Phoenix, though projects and pieces have been written, formed, or printed elsewhere. While I'm often the writer and artist for SEP books, I really enjoy collaborating and sharing skills and resources with other creators.
Shut Eye Press is equipped with a 1911 Chandler & Price platen press, a Sigwalt 23 platen press, an Ettan MS-3 etching press, a RISO EZ390 stencil printer, a Glowforge laser cutter, a Challenge guillotine paper cutter, and other printing and bookmaking tools. Feel free to reach out with project needs and ideas!
I am an independent creator and I make comics that feature LGBTQ+ characters with stories that center around friendship and chosen family. The work I make has been described as vibrant and colorful. The stories are pulled from real experiences by either myself, friends or a mix of both. The biggest goal with my comics is to spread joy and showcase how wonderful queer friendship is.

Each student in ARA 498/591 creates an original zine related to the contents of the class, which focuses on queer theory and queer artists, activists and other cultural producers. The content and design of the zine is entirely up to each student.
