CUNY Chapfest

The CUNY Chapfest kicked off yesterday, but today if you come out to the Graduate Center you can attend the DIY panel on zines–at 3pm:

Zines: Creative Non-Fiction on the D.I.Y.

Zines have many definitions, but as handmade and self-published print publications created and sold within a community, they undeniably offer writers space to express themselves, most commonly in short-form prose.

Panelists Alycia Sellie (Brooklyn College Zine Librarian), Ray Cha (FAQNP), Mikki Halpin (Eyresses, a zine on Jane Eyre), and Kerri Radley (Deafula) discuss all things zine, including: intentional community, privacy and anonymity, publishing in print in a digital age, the freedom of self-publication, print as a political act, and self expression. Moderated by Anne Hays and Kimiko Hahn of the CUNY Creative Writing Affiliation Group.

    I teach a writing class at San Quentin and want to give the men public exposure. Would a zine be appropriate to post their writings?
