The fourth annual Brooklyn Zine Fest returns to grant wings to more than 150 talented but lesser-known writers, artists and publishers. Last year’s festival drew a crowd of more than 2,700 to browse the exhibitors' self-published magazines and attend panel discussions. This year's highlights include a student section on the second day that showcases budding zine stars and various topics like politics, photography, poetry and pop culture. On opening day from 1 to 3pm, a panel discussion helps aspiring zine makers find ideas and collaborators. Did you know that Roger Ebert fell in love with words because of his obsession with zines? So think of this festival as a way to start your creative journey!
