Zinester Profile: Marta Lapczynski

One of the best aspects of organizing a zinefest in your own neighborhood is that it gives you the opportunity to learn of more and more zine projects being done right in your own backyard!

Such is the case with today’s zinester, Brooklyner Marta Lapczynski. Here’s her bio:

Marta Lapczynski eats, breathes, & dreams the DIY ethos. When she’s not coordinating shows or other community events at Fat Heart House where she resides in Brooklyn, she’s poring over the work of Fat Heart Press, her smallscale DIY publishing company & zine distro, scheming on the deconstruction of systemic oppression, wandering aimlessly through wooded areas outside of the city, nuzzling dogs, riding bikes, making coffee, or singing whimsical songs to no one in particular.

Marta, a fun canine friend, and zines!

Anyone either living in or visiting Brooklyn should check out Fat Heart House, which hosts DIY community events, including swap meets, skillshares, and music performances.

I'm a college reference librarian by day and a zine librarian by (Thursday) night. I created this blog mainly to share links that can possibly be useful to people interested in issues pertaining to librarianship, gender studies, New York City, zines, and a whole bunch of other topics! Also, in case you were curious, my blog's name was inspired by Gertrude Stein's book "Everybody's Autobiography."
