Portland Zine Symposium / Exhibitor Interviews  / PZS Exhibitor: Sage Adderley of Sweet Candy Distro & Press

PZS Exhibitor: Sage Adderley of Sweet Candy Distro & Press

We’ll be posting short interviews each day with the many exhibitors tabling at the 2016 Zine Symposium. Come meet all of these amazing zinesters, Saturday July 9th at Ambridge Event Center here in Portland, OR. Remember, there is only 1 day of tabling at this year’s Symposium. On Sunday July 10th, you’ll find us hosting a Skillshare day at the Independent Publishing Resource Center. Keep checking in with the site for additional exhibitor interviews, workshop and panel schedules, and fun events leading up to the Symposium.


Where do you live?
I live in beautiful Olympia, Washington!
Share with us an image of you creating and/or your creative space. What is your zine-making process?
I don’t really plan my zine-making. I get an idea and just start writing. Then I print out the text and create my zine using a cut and paste format. Sometimes I match my background images to the zine topic. It just depends on what materials I have on hand. My zine-making process is pretty spontaneous.
How do you keep inspired?
Being alive and having human experiences is my inspiration.
If you could give your 16th year old teen self a zine, which one would it be?
It would be about taking care of yourself. Something that would have emphasized that being different is okay. Embrace the weirdness and the fat.
What are you working on for this year’s Portland Zine Symposium? Share with us some photos of your new work!
I’m working on a new issue of Fat-tastic! and Marked For Life. I’ll probably print them the night before the zine fest and staple them on the way to Portland …
