The Oregon Hill community blog posted about the Richmond Zine Fest and had pictures of the Wingnut table and the Flying Brick table.

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.
