The festival is a chance to interact with artists, writers, photographers and poets (and sometimes these are one and the same). It's a fantastic feeling to connect with people who are passionate about what they're doing and want to share their ideas and stories.
Nothing gets us going quite like talking to someone who is passionate about their work. It doesn't particularly matter what the work is -- it's the passion we get off on. Hearing someone talk about their creative ideas gets our own thoughts racing.
Sadly, we missed Richmond Zine Fest this year but it's a September event and these days time seems to fly, so it's already on the L.C. calendar for next year.
