Zinester Directory Form
Zinesters have always had a hub of some kind, a way to connect to zinesters they know and have yet to meet. In the pre-Internet days, it was zine review magazines like Factsheet Five and Maximum Rocknroll. There's a grand tradition of zine fests, and even a few coveted zine-friendly book stores. Nowadays, you can find zines scattered all over the Internet!
We're collecting responses to create a public digital directory of active zinesters in 2020. We hope it can be used to find new zines by theme and location, promote distros and comp zines, and connect zinesters around the globe. It only takes about 10 minutes to fill out!
To be listed in the Zinester Directory, simply fill out this form! Encourage your zinester friends to fill out this form by sharing the link:
