This is the second year we’ve done the Atlanta Zine Fest, which is an awesome event featuring many DIY artists, writers, and makers. The event is organized by Murmur Media, and held at Murmur Gallery, Mammal Gallery, and Eyedrum in downtown Atlanta. Jon and Zac joined me, and at one point we were able to recruit Naya, who sat in and wrote me a poem on the topic of “tattoo ideas” (hopefully she’ll join us again). Many of the poems we wrote were for other artists and zine makers, and I felt a good energy and inspiration from all the creative topics.
Last year we created an on-the-spot zine featuring poems we wrote that same day. This year, I decided to make a promo video, (look for it soon) so with all the camera work going on, we decided to skip the same-day-zine idea. We were able to produce a zine (though not from the same day) by curating some of our best poems from our first five events in 2010. These were available at our table, and will also soon be available online too.
Without further ado, here are photos from AZF2016:
