Radical Southern Zine Archive Project

The University of Alabama is looking for submissions/donations for a new archive
that will collect zines from Southern authors, and zines about Southern experience.
This collection will be housed within the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library and
once cataloged will be available for any scholar or zine enthusiast looking for
research opportunities or just a nice afternoon read. This project began as the
brainchild of our students and staff who have been creating zines, using zines in
the classroom, and have a general love of all things zine related.

The goal of the collection is to gather together the work of individuals who are
writing in the South, writing about the South and zinsters who are Southerners
living across the world. It is our belief and hope that the Radical Southern Zine
Archive will help bring together the work being produced everywhere about the South
and house it where all can enjoy it. We want all those Southern perspectives so send
us your zines and let’s get this process started. If anyone has any questions please
email us and we will get back to you ASAP.

The official opening of the Radical Southern Zine Archive will take place in
September, and will kick off a yearlong celebration of the zine and the zine

community. We look forward to hearing from each and every one of you.

Send your zines to:
