Stay tuned for the full announcement of exhibitor stalls, talks, workshops and the celebratory closing party to come.

One of My Kind (OOMK) is a collaborative publishing practice led by Rose Nordin, Sofia Niazi and Heiba Lamara. Working together since 2014, OOMK make, publish and distribute books and printed works which arise from self-initiated projects. OOMK also commission new works by women artists and co-curate DIY Cultures, one of the UK’s largest annual independent publishing fairs. With a focus on self-publishing and education, OOMK founded and run a community Risograph printing press in East London, Rabbits Road Press. OOMK are currently residents at Somerset House Studios.
OOMK Zine is a highly visual, handcrafted small-press publication. Printed biannually, its content pivots upon the imaginations, creativity and spirituality of women. Each issue centres around a different creative theme, with more general content exploring topics of faith, activism and identity.
