Why do you think independent publishing is important?

Independent publishing seems to be getting more and more important as the times progress. The attack on the media, on news, and alternative facts all make publishing independently, without censorship paramount.

What does the future of zines and independent publishing look like to you?

I think, to anyone that's been paying attention, zines have been becoming more and more popular. It seems like every major region across the country has their very own zine fest, Southern California having close to 10!
