Chicago Zine Fest to Be Your BFF

The Chicago Zine Fest is one of many wonderfully free cultural offerings available to Chicago's reading public. This year's fest is scheduled for March 8 and 9 and will involve much of the programming repeat attendees have seen in the past like panels, workshops, trades, storytelling, readings, skill sharing, and more.

Zine Fest is requesting donations to ensure that things remain as free and dynamic as ever for 2013. There are about 33 hours left on the funding site, so if you're feeling inspired this is the time to make your move. Gifts for all donators are detailed on the fundraiser page and include zines, totes, prints, and even a free tattoo.
