Zine Archive

 

We have the longest running self-identified women of color zine in the nation. Our annual literary and arts “zine” (short for fanzine or magazine) is published in conjunction with the Live Art Show. Zines are a non-commercial form of independent media that circulate information and communicate stories that are often devalued in popular culture, public discourse and mainstream politics. The Mujeres de Maiz zines feature the original poetry, prose and the visual art of self-identified women of color. It is a platform for writers and artists of all abilities, from novice to professional from local to global.
