About This Page

The makers and distributors found across the tabs down below are noted here for additional interesting examples of the wide zine making world, but also, to serve as points of contact. There are lots of reasons why it's worth reaching out to folks directly-- whether that's because you'd like to learn more about how they got started with their practice, or you have works of your own to share, or maybe even because you find yourself wanting to distribute some zines yourself-- to your neighbors, your home, your local community center. In any case, it's always good to remember that you can talk to people!

If you have any questions not for makers or distributors themselves, or perhaps, feel uncomfortable doing so directly yourself, please do feel free to also talk to us at Ricker about what's on your mind!
