Last month I attended the Women of Color Zine Symposium in Portland, Oregon. As you may know, our collection development policy states our emphasis on zines by women of color, which is why it was important for me to zoom across the country for a two-day visit to the whitest city in America.  It was great to connect with many email correspondents and Facebook friends like Cathy Camper, Emi Koyama, LaMesha Melton and Sugene Yang-Kelly and to meet a few new-to-me WOC zinesters.

The Madison InfoShop, a radical resource center in Madison, WI, is launching a digital zine library and oral history project. Get a summary and volunteer info.

If you were at Meet Me at the Race Riot earlier this year, then you had the privilegeof seeing Osa Atoe read from her amazing zine Shotgun Seamstress. She is now releasing all six issues as one box set. She's even throwing in a free mixtape! Don't miss this chance to own such an important part of  zine punk history!

Are you looking for zines on nationality and transition? Do you have any zines to add to the list? Click here to go to CUNY's blog to see Alycia Sellie's growing list of zines!

Everyone should take a look at Coloring Outside the Lines, a zine by women of color activists at UCSC in Santa Cruz available online!

Check out this blog post about zines on Black Pineapple, Adee Roberson's blog!
