Alyssa Giannini (organizer of OZF 2015-2018) is a mover, a shaker and a zine maker. They have been putting out DIY guides and perzines under the banner of Craft or DIY since 2011. When they’re not tediously binding zines, they can generally be found tending to their plants, laughing at their own jokes, or behind the lens of a camera at the matinee punk gig.

Chelsea Baker (organizer of OZF 2015 and 2016) began making zines in high school, but didn’t know what a zine was until college. Since then, she has produced an impressively large body of work, primarily comprised of the Daily Comics she started at the end of 2008. In almost seven years, she’s never missed a day. Her other non-fiction comics cover subjects as varied as the genetic science of Down syndrome and a first-hand account of sex work. She spent several years as the director of the Olympia Comics Festival and squanders too much of her free time making cutesy faces at cats.
Chris Sabatini (organizer of OZF 2017) is a local cartoonist who self-publishes pamphlets every now and again. He is also running for mayor of Olympia in 2056. He almost never looks at the internet, but he’s not anti-social. He works at the library.
Naomi (organizer of OZF 2015-2018) lives in the damp and wonderfully overcast Pacific Northwest where they like to create things and take notes. They made a zine on accident in 2007 and have been carrying on ever since. When it comes down to it, all they want to do is dance.

Sage Adderley (founding organizer, 2015-2017) is a witchy mama of three humans and two cats. She is passionate about kindness, mental health awareness, fat activism, and the DIY lifestyle. Sage is the owner of Sweet Candy Distro & Press, Sage’s Blog Tours, author of Invoking Nonna, and writes the personal zine, Marked For Life. She is also the creator of the body positive zine, FAT-TASTIC! Sage was the brainchild for starting a zine fest in Olympia, thank you for your amazine ideas Sage!
