We teamed up with New Women Space (a brand new place where women can collectively gather and shape the future together in Brooklyn) for our first New Women Print & Zine Fest on Saturday, November 12th from 12-6pm.
Brooklyn came out to meet the creators and browse an exciting, emerging line-up of women/trans/gender non-conforming-led zines featuring:
+ Got a Girl Crush - a blog and annual print magazine about women, by women, for everyone
+ The Bettys - Female-identified LGBT art collective from NYC tri-state area
+ Boys I’ve Kissed & Hated - a collection of poems about the adventures of a young woman fumbling through intimate experiences from her teens through her early twenties and explores the awkwardness and dissatisfaction with most of the young woman’s encounters through a comedic lens
+ La Motocyclette - a bi-annual independent magazine featuring stories and images from motorcyclists from all around the world
+ Math Magazine - an independent porn quarterly for open-minded adults
+ Metaphorical Fruit - quarterly zine that seeks to disrupt western art’s infatuation with the male gaze by publishing art by women about women
+ NO SHAME Distro - POC collective based in Philly & NJ who are interested in promoting zine writers and artists of color
+ Selfish - a team of women who want to share other women’s stories in an incredible way
+ Suffragette City - an annual DIY zine and community based in Brooklyn committed to promoting the creative and intellectual ideas of strong and outspoken women
+ Tom Tom Magazine - the only magazine in the world dedicated to female drummers
And works by Hayley Blatte of Troll Hole NYC, Lili Emtiaz, Pegacorn Press,Pretty Dirty Press, The Kitchen Witch and more!
