Those wont to deem print as “dead” might find themselves thinking differently after attending the inaugural PHX Zine Fest, which takes over The Icehouse, 429 West Jackson Street, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 23.
The free-to-attend daylong celebration of DIY comes courtesy of authors Marna Kay (B-Sides Magazine) and Charissa Lucille (Fem Static Zine) — who also operate Wasted Ink Zine Distro, an East Valley zine exchange — and Brodie Foster Hubbard (Fair Dig).
Inaugural attendees can indulge in food trucks, listen to artist talks, and browse a pop-up library featuring handcrafted publications on almost any topic imaginable. (If you’re into it, there’s probably a zine about it.) Poet Joy Young will lead the panel discussion “The Zine Table: Gender in Transition,” and Amber McCrary, co-producer of Native American Feminist Musings, will host “POC Talk: The Creative Process Through a Cultural Lens.” See www.phxzinefest.com for complete schedule.
