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.

The Wingnut now hosts a weekly craft night for anyone who wants to have a fun sober time creating crafts in a friendly environment. It takes place Wednesdays at 7. People bring the supplies for whatever they want to do, though folks also share. Projects have involved sewing, painting, drawing, shrinky dinks, beads, fliers, knitting, etc. If you want help with an idea you can come see if anyone has skills to share.
