the world we can imagine
MidWest Zine Fest is designed to promote a vision of the world where we would like to live. This world is not ruled by commercial interests, publishing giants, sexist, racist, ageist, ability-focused, and/or trans*/homophobic individuals. Rather, it is a collectively shared and generative space wherein all peoples involved are respected and cared for. For these, and a number of other reasons, MWZF will not host zinesters or zines that hope to promote authoritarianism, hate, or mistrust among attendees. We look forward to working together to build the world we want and to continue to name our desires.
