WHO:  DSTL Arts & Smiley Faze Productions

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ZINES YOU CREATE AND/OR WHY YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TABLING AT L.A. ZINE FEST 2016?: DSTL Arts is a 501c3 nonprofit arts mentorship organization that teaches, inspires, and hires creative, at-risk youth ages 16–21 years old. The LA Zine Fest gives our young artists the opportunity to showcase their work while also learning business skills as people invest in their art, their poetry, and their short stories by purchasing it, and even commissioning our young artists. Additionally, the founders and arts mentors of DSTL Arts have the opportunity to show their creative works through Smiley Faze Productions, with a focus on poetry and flash fiction publications. The LA Zine Fest 2016 will see the debut of a few new zines and chapbooks by DSTL Arts students and arts mentors, and we’re also excited to be able to offer custom-written poetry at our table for those who are interested. All proceeds from our LA Zine Fest sales will benefit DSTL Arts and our students, as always. Learn more about us at today!

Get to Know Your Zinester features collages of the 2016 Fest exhibitors.
