NYC Feminist Zine Fest this Saturday, March 1st at Barnard College

Hi, Everyone,
    I recently joined this SIG and look forward to getting to know others in the group. I wanted to quickly pass along the information below about a zine fest that I saw on the Pratt SILS listserv that might be of interest to the group, especially those in the NYC area:

The NYC Feminist Zine Fest is back! In 2012, Elvis Bakaitis and Kate Angell launched the first Feminist Zine Fest - an event that packed the Brooklyn Commons to the gills. An expanded organizing team has worked hard to bring it back this year!
More than 30 amazing zine makers will come together at Barnard College to share their work. There will be zine readings, workshops, and of course oodles of fun and colorful zines.
WHEN: Saturday, March 1st, 2014 ~ 1pm to 6pm

WHERE: Barnard College (116th St and Broadway), James Room

It's free and open to the public.

Hashtag: #fzfnyc

Please help us spread the word by posting this info around the internet and amongst your pals!

Elvis, Jenna, Jordan, Rachel & Sari

Brian Cronin on the Comic Book Resources Comics Should Be Good Blog, has compiled a list of meta messages. These are messages where comics writers' characters reference the work of another comic artist's work or character. See Cronin's list on his Comics Should Be Good Blog original post!
