Calling all collage connoisseurs, glue stick gurus, and copy machine queens: The SF Zine Fest is back. This annual gathering of writers, illustrators, designers, and creators celebrates the do-it-yourself magazine, a form that’s enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Come meet some of the NorCal leaders of this underground form, check out some of the city’s best alt rags, and enjoy the distinctive zine subculture at this weekend-long event. Among the form’s favorite subjects are monsters, food, sex, dreams, environmental apocalypse, and riot grrrls. In other words, it’s home to the queer and the quirky. Take that, mainstream publishing! Don’t forget your X-Acto knife or your sense of adventure.
