If you’ve never really understood what a zine is, now is the time to learn.

An entire zine festival is coming to Calgary, as arts magazine Broken Pencil is throwing the first ever Canzine Festival of Zines and Underground Culture this Saturday.

The event will feature hundreds of zine, book, comic, and small print vendors to explore, a panel later in the afternoon, and an hour long workshop to end off the event.

Attendees will be able to trade, purchase, or simply browse a wide array of handmade publications, and even have the opportunity to sell their own work.

The panel is titled Zines and Self-Publishing as Resistance in the Digital Age, and will run from 3 to 4 pm.

The workshop will be led by poet and teacher Derek Beaulieu, the publisher of No Press, and he will teach participants how to create and bind a chapbook – material will be provided.

Admission is free, and all attendees will receive a free issue of Broken Pencils upon entry.
