Red Velvet and Catfish Koifish are two zinesters coming all the way from Memphis to be part of Tampa Zine Fest!  Here are some of the zines you’ll see at their table:

"Catherinette", by Red Velvet and Severity Chaste, is a combination manifesto and exploration of how to be a modern-day spinster. ‘Catherinettes’ were women who’d reached the age of 25 without being married; we’re two Catherines exploring spinsterhood in the 21st century. To us, that means independent, solitary ladies who love cats, books, boning, and solitude — and aren’t defined by their relationships.

"Where Are You Going?", by Red Velvet and Catfish Koifish. Written after a recent move to the South, this is an interactive zine for explorers of new homes. Intended for people who are new in town, this zine is also for anyone trying to figure out what to do with themselves when feeling unsettled. It’s meant to let you know that you’re not alone in seeing a new place for the first time, adjusting to a new job, encountering the local dating scene, and feeling all-around frustrated.

We’re still looking for tablers! If you are in the Tampa Bay area and make a zine, please table at the fest! We are trying to build Tampa’s zine community and we need your help!

Signal boost. I am sadder than sad that I’ll be out of town for this, but I’m hoping to have something done and out on a friend’s table.

Yes, please do! We’re hoping there’s enough interest so we can make this a yearly thing, so fingers crossed to see you in person next year!

As we gear up for the Tampa Zine Fest, and in honor of International Zine Month, we want to put up some reviews of zines people will have at the fest. So if you’re planning on tabling, and would like to get your zine reviewed beforehand, send us a message so we can get this arranged!
