What’s a ZAPP?

The Zine Archive and Publishing Project (ZAPP) is a volunteer-driven living archive of over 30,000 self-published materials. ZAPP is a DIY resource and educational center committed to supporting underheard voices from around the world, maintaining and validating publications outside the literary mainstream.

Founded in 1996 as a program of the Richard Hugo House, ZAPP is now an independent organization operating under the fiscal sponsorship of Shunpike.

ZAPP is dedicated to building a strong community of self-publishers and championing freedom of expression in Seattle and beyond.
