The San Anto Zine Fest was organized by the creative minds behind the DIY publications CHIFLADAzine, La Liga Zine, St. Sucia and Yes Ma’am. It's a first in San Antonio — but this isn’t the organizers’ first zine-centered event. The fest’s organizers (Isabel Ann Castro, Natasha Hernandez, St. Sucia, Ana Ortiz, Isabel Ramos, Suzy Gonzalez and Claudia D. Cardona) have all taken turns traveling across the U.S., participating in some of country’s largest zine gatherings, like LA Zine Fest, Chicago Zine Fest and Zine Fest Houston. This time they’re bringing the celebration home, creating a space for local, regional and national artists to showcase their works. The festival lineup is jam-packed. Attendees can be sure to find a wide collection of works from independent publishers, creative designers, first-time and veteran writers and experimental photographers as well as panelists and speakers covering topics like zines for teenagers and parents, Latinas in the zine scene, and even a how-to class for those looking to create their own publication.
