We’ve been plugging away at 2013 and the glorious events to come! It is with pleasure that we can now announce that we have four teen zine workshops confirmed this summer with various branches of the Harris County Public Library! Check out the details here and stay tuned for more information about the workshops.
If you know a teen who might be interested in self-publishing and creating zines, please spread the word. Thanks!
Also we’d like to remind you to get your zines ready for the upcoming Zine Picnic + Swap THIS SUNDAY April 1-5pm at MANDELL (not Menil) PARK! It’s going to be a lot of fun in the sun, so bring a blanket, food and bev, and a selection of your zine collection to swap and share!
As always, please feel free to email us with any questions or if you want to join our mailing list at You can also join our mailing list by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy to announce our official Zine Fest Houston 2013 Compilation names! All the submissions are fabulous and we look forward to seeing you all at the Houston Indie Book Festival, where we’ll be debuting the compilation (after many sleepless nights of layout and mockups and printing, we’ll be happy to be out in the sun again I’m sure) – Thanks to all who submitted!
Anastasia Kirages, Chris Engelsma, Chris Tebow Smith, Edwin Johnston, FUNWUNCE, Gabriel Dieter, Jarrod L. Perez, Jason Poland, John Forse, Lee Steiner, Lindsay Simard, Maria H., Monte Hayward, Shane Patrick Boyle
Coming Sunday, April 7 from 1-5pm at Mandell Park!
Bring your favorite dish/drink, blankets and zines to swap and share! What better way to spend a Sunday than eating great food, hanging out in the sun and celebrating in the joy that self-made publications can bring? This picnic is super casual, so feel free to bring your friends and/or family!
Don’t worry if you don’t have a zine to share. There will be tons of zines to browse and look at!
In addition, The Billy Pilgrim Traveling Library, a new Houston-based bookmobile, will be on hand during the picnic to accept zine donations to their collection!

You might think we were napping between October and now, but we’ve been busy little bees planning a great year for Zine Fest Houston!
