Quaranzine Fest was a (cough…) viral concept to connect zine makers and patrons in this turbulent time of social distancing. On April 4th and 5th the hashtag #quaranzinefest was used over 2,200 times on instagram! (At the time of this posting it’s still going with 2,800 posts.) Zine makers from around the world posted, liked, commented, chatted, DM’d, and even BOUGHT ZINES!
