Food For Thought Books, Flywheel Arts Collective and the Ladyfest Easthampton crew are coming together to bring you the Pioneer Valley Zine Fest/Ladyfest! a three day event celebrating DIY music and art in western mass!
Pioneer Valley Zine Fest/Ladyfest is a three day event that strives to bring accessibility to DIY art and zine making as well as supporting radical independent publishing. Additionally, we seek to celebrate musicians in the DIY underground whose gender identity falls outside of the dominate mainstream. Our goal is to bring writers, activists, artists and community members together through sharing, connecting, and collaborating.

Zines, which are written in a variety of formats, strive to set importance on bringing literature, art, and politics out of a profit oriented industry. This lets information that is often exlusive to academic or privileged spheres available to a more general public. Zines offer a founding basis of Do-it-yourself “DIY” communities and encourage anyone to write fiction, non fiction, or anything else without the need of a publisher.
REGISTRATION FOR TABLING IS CLOSED! BUT if you want to be put on a waiting list, feel free to email us!
