What is a tech zine?

Here are some of the things we include in our definition of tech zines: * educational explainers about computing * activist zines about harnessing technology for community aims * zines that highlight personal experiences with social media or mobile apps * graphic novels about a future with robots.

If you're engaging with some aspect of print and technology, we'd love to see your work! Apply here by November 1!

Over two days, the first ever New York Tech Zine Fair (NYTZF) will provide a platform for 20+ exhibitors and DIY publishers to sell and circulate their work in a supportive community. Join us as we showcase the ways in which visual artists, writers, engineers, technologists, illustrators, and designers are using the space of zines and similar DIY creations to examine what we consider to be “technology” and offer a fresh perspective on digital culture.

The NYTZF will feature a calendar of workshops, educational programming and social events. Sign up for our mailing list to stay informed!
