After three and a half long years, the OTTAWA ZINE OFF is finally back up and running!
What’s a ZINE OFF? Well, the gist of it is, you (one) make a zine by the day of the event, (two) print out a bunch of copies — there’s no wrong amount, but at least 15 is recommended!, and (three) swap with others who did the same!
It’s a great way to not only get your work out there and return home with a ton of free zines, but also to meet like-minded and creative people in the community (…and get the attention of the Pressed zine rack’s curator, hint hint).
The event is all ages and completely free (…though, it wouldn’t hurt to support our hosts by buying a drink or leaving a tip)!
To learn more about zines, view a list of topic ideas, or the event itself, be sure check out the event page on Facebook.
