Upcoming Event: MidWest Zine Fest

The 3rd annual MidWest Zine Fest (MWZF) will be occurring in Urbana, IL on April 13th at the UC-IMC (202 S. Broadway). This event, peripheral to Mix IT Up! projects, features local independent artists and creators who create and publish their own print media. It will feature speakers, workshops, a movie screening, and plenty of zines!

Joe Coyle, who works with the Mix IT Up! juvenile detention center library project, will be presenting at this year’s MWZF on the topic of publishing, writing, and distribution by youth in the Champaign County Juvenile Detention Center. We look forward to hearing more about the project and are hoping to hear about some of the zines that youth have begun to do. The library is planning to partner with the People of Color (POC) Zine Project to distribute zines by youth in the detention center.
