Zines are handmade magazines with a long, rich history. They’re inexpensive, easy to make, and can be a useful project for adults and children alike. In use before the 1920s, zines are being created and sold or traded worldwide today!
UPCOMING WORKSHOPS & EVENTS
KENTUCKY FRIED ZINE FEST |April 11th
University of Kentucky School of Art and Visual Studies
236 Bolivar St, Lexington, Kentucky 40508
If you would like to make a zine with me, I’m going to have space on my table for my students. If you have never been to a zine fest, you are in for a treat. I am also running the collaborative zine – ITEM – so come play with me there, too.
Workshop: Zine Make & Take | TBA Anywhere in Kentucky
Looking for libraries, storefronts, festivals, museums,
makers spaces, or art-friendly cafes.
Contact me via email if you have or know of a location!
Come play with pen and paper. No writing, drawing, or zine skill required. Paper provided, bring a pen and a pair of scissors if you have them. I’ll go wherever I’m requested – I normally teach free, but appreciate attendees throwing into a tip jar that helps me cover supplies and travel expenses. Drop me a note if you’d like to host me for an evening workshop.
CURRENT ZINE CALLS
Three Dollar Squirrel | By writers for writers on the act, art, and process of writing.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND MY ZINES & MORE
ZINE MAKERS I LOVE
One of my favorite RPG-related zine makers. Slowquest’s Choose Your Own Adventure zine (above) in a monthly Zine-O-Matic package and fell hard. Check him out on his site and show him love on his Patreon!
MY ZINE COLLECTION
Just a small few of the zines I’ve collected over the years through local zine fests, the Zine-O-Matic monthly subscription service, and personal snail mail trades. (links to their creators coming as well as a BUNCH more)
