Who Are We?

We’re the Portland Zine Symposium, an organization that since 2001 has put on events to celebrate and support small press and DIY culture. We host and assist with events throughout the year, then every summer hold a two day free conference with tablers from around the world, free workshops, and much more.

Wow, the 2014 Portland Zine Symposium was such a success!

Thanks to everyone who came out for it, tabled at it, led workshops at it, contributed art or words or music to one of our kick-off nights, or helped with Zine Prom. We appreciated you all SO MUCH!  But this is no time to rest on our laurels!  We are already hard at work planning for the 2015 zine symposium, July 18th and 19th at the Ambridge Event Center in Portland, Oregon.  Amazing events like this don’t happen without your help though: if you would be interested in joining the organizing committee, volunteering at one of our events, or even running an event of your own, contact us at!
