(POSTPONED) Swansea Zine Fest 2020
May 9 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The second annual Swansea Zine Fest will take place on Sat 11th May 2019 in Volcano Theatre!
Swansea Zine Fest is a celebration of fanzines and DIY self-publishing. Come along to buy and swap zines and DIY publications from a range of creators from Swansea and further afield. Swansea Zine Fest will also include zine readings, craft space, free zine giveaways, and a chance to make your own zine.
· Free entry
· Fully accessible venue
· Open to all
A zine (pronounced “zeen,” as in “maga-zine”) is a self-published, small circulation, non-commercial booklet or magazine, usually produced by one person or a few individuals. Zines can include personal essays, political discussions, fiction, do-it-yourself tips, articles about music or movies, comics, poetry, reviews – anything under the sun.
We will be collecting donations on the day for Discovery, a Swansea-based charity that enriches the lives of the people in Swansea through volunteering. www.discoverySVS.org
