The Southeast Zine Fest will serve as a meeting place for zine makers, readers, and distributors throughout the Southeast, and the event will culminate in the co-creation of the first official Southeast Zine Fest Zine. The event is the first of its kind in the Carolinas, but we hope to attract people from all over the area, from Asheville to Atlanta to Miami to New Orleans and beyond. Through our communal zine, we hope to keep the independent and creative spirit of zinesters alive well beyond the event itself.

The fest will take place on October 20, 2012 at Redux Contemporary Art Center (136 St. Philip St.) in Charleston, S.C. This is a free venue, and that means that the Southeast Zine Fest is going to be a free event for attendees and for tablers, whether individual zinesters or distros. We'll also have a table for people with zines who can't come to the event (visit our website to find out more on how to get involved that way).

We’ll have speakers, workshops, demos, live music, food trucks, and more. Currently, Alison Piepmeier, author of Girl Zines: Making Media, Doing Feminism, is slated to speak. Workshops being scheduled even include one that will be kid-friendly, so bring the fam.

And besides good vibes, we'll also be creating the very first Southeast Zine Fest zine! Attendees will be able to submit a page of their creation for the communal zine, which we will print after the fest and distribute to our backers and within the Charleston community.

We hope you can support the Southeast Zine Fest, whether you register for a table, show up on Oct. 20th, or (most importantly in the lead-up) pitching in a few bucks so we can make this happen. We're hoping that this will be an event for Charleston's creative and DIY community for years to come, but we can't do it without your help!
