LUMPS Zine is first and foremost and feminist publication. Our mission is to exhibit and share the work of female illustrators hoping to find a voice in the field. Through our publication we hope to contribute to the broader dialogue of feminist topics in regard to the field of illustration and other closely related fields.
The Lettered Streets Press
The Lettered Streets Press aims to publish work we love & want to see in the world. We aim to work with writers willing to work & be out in the world. We aim to work with writers who view publishing as a community, not as a means to an end. All profits from this press go back into the press. The editors make no money from this press. We are a collective of sorts, not a business. We publish poetry, fiction, essays, & hybrid work. These terms are relative. We like blurring. We like projects.
Chicago Zine Fest
The Chicago Zine Fest is an independent event creating an outlet for small press and independent publishers to showcase their work. Our goal is to make DIY zine-making accessible, highlight the talents of self-published artists, and give independent artists a chance to interact, and swap skills through tabling, community events, and workshops.
