COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: People of the Sun Distro Q&A for L.A. Zine Fest 2013

We’ve been in touch with Isidro Fox at People of the Sun Distro since last September. Fox sent their zines to be included in the POCZP archive last year and we recently signal boosted their call for more poc zines to share at this year’s L.A. Zine Fest.

Check out L.A. Zine Fest’s Q&A with Fox. Here’s an excerpt:

What’s the best thing that ever happened to you because of zines?
It seemed like every time I wanted to completely give up on writing, I’d randomly get an email from someone talking about how great my writing was, and how they’re surprised I’m not a real hot-shot yet. I always find that pretty funny, being that I honestly go through a lot of moments where I think what I’m creating is utter crap, and yet there are these people who think I’m the best and keep asking me to publish a book or something because the small amount of writing they’ve seen is a real tease. There’s also those people who find my writing through these zines, tell me I really cheered ‘em up, and though I know that can’t always last forever, I’m still glad I was somehow able to pick-up someone’s chin – if only for a night.

POC Zine Project will be at L.A. Zine Fest on Feb. 17! Visit our table and attend/support our multimedia reading and discussion at the fest. We look forward to building with you, people of earth! More details coming soon … <3
