Lit Chat Interview with Daryl Gussin

#Zinester Talks Fanzines, Community

Daryl Gussin is a writer and musician who has been awkwardly standing around at punk shows for the last twenty-something years. Thankfully at some point in his late teens, he decided to become a little more productive and has been working on zines, setting up shows, and playing in bands consecutively since then. He's been integrally involved in Razorcake fanzine for the last seventeen years.


Get to know Daryl Gussin and his work at the Lit Chat Interview on Saturday, July 20, at 2 p.m. at the Willow Branch Library. If you can't attend in person, the interview will also be livestreamed (simultaneously) via Zoom. An audience Q&A will follow the 40-minute interview. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Willowbranch Library.

In 2006, Daryl Gussin became integrally involved in the Razorcake fanzine where he is currently the managing editor. His writing revolves around the honest, bittersweet, and ultimately triumphant aspects of counterculture and its flavorful inhabitants: The heartbreaks, the implosions, and the defiant victories. Community over commercialism, create and destroy.

Interviewer Lindsay Anderson is a prolific zine maker and self-publisher based in Jacksonville, FL. Since 2013, Lindsay has developed a long-running zine project, she has helped to organize the annual Duval Comic and Zine Fest (DCAZ) and recently launched a new quarterly zine Mischief on the River. She's passionate about creating from existing resources and making space for others to develop and showcase their own works.
