Zine Club Chicago Online: Crowdfunding Your Zines Edition with Special Guest Scott Russell Morris

This month, Zine Club Chicago is excited to welcome special guest Scott Russell Morris, who will be joining us from South Korea to discuss the pros and cons of taking your zines to popular crowdfunding platforms. Scott will present his personal experience from his six Kickstarter campaigns and share insights from other zinesters who’ve used crowdfunding. There will be a lot of practical tips and tricks to help you set up your own zine campaign and a brief brainstorming session to see if crowdfunding is right for your project.
Scott Russell Morris is the creator and editor of Magpie Zines, a zine about tarot, magpies, and found meaning. He is also a university professor, board gamer, and squirrel enthusiast. You can learn more about Scott and his work at skoticus.com and on Instagram @magpiezines
