On Saturday April 11th, 2015, the Flywheel Arts Collective hosted the Pioneer Valley Zine Fest as part of the Easthampton Book Festival. Flywheel is a DIY music venue and arts collective that’s been around for 15 years. Zine-makers signed up to table their zines in participation with the festival.
Lucy Martirosyan, of NEPR’s AudioFiles, interviewed some zine-makers to develop a better understanding of what a zine is, and how the sub-culture of zine-making fits in with the do-it-yourself community.
