Local (KC), personal, DIY, self-care, self-help, radical/political, identity politics (gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality,etc.) and feminist zines are the focus of this distro. Other things neither/nor has to offer are titles from Silver Sprocket, GenderFail, Eberhardt Press, School of Life Design, and Portland Button Works, used zines, Slingshot Newspapers and Organizers, and tote bags, t-shirts, and pin back buttons. Zines available at each brick and mortar store vary and are curated to serve each location's specific tastes and clientele.
Neither/nor is currently in the process of cataloging a zine library containing 1000+ zines! Check out the library database here! A portion of the zine library is being housed and is available to the public for in house use only at Soulcentricitea, go check it out! For access to the library or to volunteer to catalog the collection contact Jess at email@example.com
Neither/nor is owned and operated by Kansas Citian, Jess Hogan (they/them). Jess is a biracial (latinx/white) genderfluid/nonbinary/queer person who loves making, reading, trading, and collecting zines. It’s that love that led Jess to connect with other local zinesters and work towards putting on KC Zine Con for the first 5 years of it's existence! In November 2015, after the success and connections made at Zine Con #1, Jess' long time dream of running a zine distro came true!
The mission of Neither/nor Zine Distro is to be a source for novice and veteran zine makers/enthusiasts to sell their zines and support one another and to act as a zine destination/resource in KC year round. Zines can take many forms reflecting the individuals' vision. They are inherently empowering since the entire process (content creation, editing, layout, reproduction, distribution) is controlled by the artist. By distributing these unique creations uncapitalized voices are disseminated and elevated!
