KC Zine Con #7

Welcome to KC Zine Con #7

KC Zine Con #7 is a hybrid event, with opportunities to participate both in-person and virtually. Join us on Saturday, June 11th (in-person) at Plexpod Westport Commons from 11am to 5pm and (virtually) at kczinecon.com for a zine convention celebrating small press creators and DIY artists in KC (and beyond!) This year’s beautiful poster art was designed by Ani Mal.
