Zines! Comics! Arts! Crafts!
bostonzinefair.org

The Boston Zine Fair is a weekend-long event with the aim of bringing together zinesters, artists, small presses and other producers of independent media. The conference includes two full days of tabling and numerous hands-on workshops and discussion panels which give us the opportunity to learn new skills to use in our own creative enterprises, as well as to explore the importance of independent media in a corporate-owned world. The Boston Zine Fair is free and open to the public. In previous years the Boston Zine Fair (formerly known as Beantown Zinetown) has drawn hundreds of both local and national publishers, and has been a great way to build community and just enjoy each other's company.\

... what are zines???
For awhile it was short for Magazine but now has a broader definition: a small circulation, non-commercial publication of original or appropriated texts and images. There are e-zines, fanzines, etc & etc.
