The Richmond Zine Fest organizers are again organizing a pre zine fest potluck and reading event the night before the zine fest. Last year’s potluck and reading was such a good time we wanted to do it again.

So Friday October 7th from 7pm to 10pm come join the organizers of the Richmond Zine Fest and both out of town and local zinesters to socialize and share food.

Last year we had a really great time with the zine readings that folks did during the potluck. So if you are interested please bring some of your material to share. This will be a casual event, but if you want to let us know that you plan on reading, please email us at richmondzinefest@yahoo.com

This event is FREE just like the zine fest, but please bring a dish or non-alcoholic drink to share! If you are able to label your dish for allergens (peanuts, dairy, meat, soy) even better! (more…)

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.
