The first event in our four-part #ORCityZineFest is the grand unveiling and tabling event aka the Oregon City Public Library Zine Fair! Meet with local zinesters, catch readings, and browse our brand new zine collection. Raffle prizes, light refreshments, and more!
— What's a zine? A zine is a self-published work typically with a small circulation that provides an avenue for anyone to share their writing, art, comics, etc. With origins in 1930s science fiction fanzines and the emergence of punk rock in the 70s, the format for zines has changed dramatically over time and there isn't one way to make a zine! Because of their low cost production, zines are especially important tools for amplifying the voices and stories of people from marginalized communities.
