Pioneer Valley Zine Fest is a three day event that strives to bring accessibility to DIY zine making as well as supporting radical independent publishing. Our goal is to bring writers, activists, artists and community members together through sharing, connecting, and collaborating.
Zines, which are written in a variety of formats, strive to set importance on bringing literature, art, and politics out of a profit oriented industry. This lets information that is often exlusive to academic or privileged spheres available to a more general public. Zines offer a founding basis of Do-it-yourself “DIY” communities and encourage anyone to write fiction, non fiction, or anything else without the need of a publisher.
Papercut will be tabling at this on Saturday, so look out for our table!
