Alt press fest 2020

This fall, Alt Press Fest returns for a week of live, online events. The 12th Annual Alt Press Fest will celebrate local zines and DIY publishing with readings from local creators, a virtual open mic, and a presentation from the Historical Graffiti Society.

You can also sign up for a mail-order mystery pack full of locally-produced zines, stickers, and other printed goodies — delivered straight to your mailbox! (while supplies last.)
