|Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go - the name stands
for a small group of women who organize zine workshops & events
promoting empowerment through self-publishing.
GZAGG started in 2002 after a few women got together to present a workshop at a womens radical art event in San Diego.
The catalyst was Elke Zobl, founder of the Grrrl Zine Network. As a visiting graduate student from Austria, Elke networked with local zinesters in San Diego for her research. She hooked up with Margarat Nee, creator of Radical Pet, Oya, and Dogrrrl, Glue Magazine’s Claudia Lucero, Kim Schwenk, creator of Grrrl Noire and Cyclette, and Wives Tale’s creator Britton Neubacher. A few years later some had gone on to other projects, and Ari, writer of Metasynderine, joined the collective bringing her distro expertise.
