Q&A with Zine Market tablers Mujeres de Maiz

A grassroots, multimedia women’s activist organization based in Los Angeles. Their mission is to unite and empower women of all ages, colors, and sexualities by creating safe community spaces that provide art education, mentorship, art exhibition, and publishing opportunities.

How did you first get in to making zines?

 Mujeres de Maiz 1st zine was in 1997 — it was a way for us as womyn of color to share our stories, experiences, opinions, creations and imagination.  We were definitely inpired by the Riot Grrrl Revolution as well as the newspapers and magaiznes of the Chican@ and Civil Rights Movement of our predecessors in the 60’s and 70’s


What are some of your current or all time favorite zines?

Riot Grrrl Zines— kept it raw, feminist and real. Also some of the Zapatista Chican@ ones that came out on special occasions.


What kind of zines will people find at your table?

Art and poetry


Why do you choose to make zines compared to blogs or traditional publishing?

We have always done it DIY— and thing it is an important feat to see all womyn of color creating, publishing and distributing their own work.

Q&A with Zine Market tablers 826LA

826LA is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6 to 18 with their creative and expository writing skills, they’ve produced various zines and chapbooks with the work of local youth.

How did you first get in to making zines?

826LA started making zines in a workshop for high school students. Students approached us about doing a fashion zine, and it evolved from there into several different zines. We still do zine workshops from time to time at 826LA with students ages 6-18, but we are consistently publishing our student work in what we call chapbooks. These books are bound and published in-house at 826LA. They are small, zine-like books, and are full of student writing. They look beautiful, but also are easy enough for us to publish often.


What are some of your current or all time favorite zines?

All of the books that 826LA students publish! Some of my favorites of those are our books written by our English Language Learners about space, nature, and more.


What kind of zines will people find at your table?

They will all be written by 826LA students in our tutoring, field trip, and workshop programs. They are all whimsical, fun, and full of imagination.

Why do you choose to make zines compared to blogs or traditional publishing?

We publish zines and chapbooks while running a blog and publish books traditionally. Publishing chapbooks specifically are much easier and more accessible to us, and we want students to see that it is easy for them to become published authors and writers, and that it doesn’t have to be a huge, long, and selective process. Chapbooks and zines give our students the knowledge that their words have power and are worth publishing in whatever format is available to them.
