A con zine is the publication issued for a convention. Most con zines are prepared in advance with the editors asking for submissions from those attending the con and other interested people. The zine is then given to those in attendance who contributed, and are available for purchase from others. Con zines are often a more casual production than a regular zine in that the submissions are shorter and may or may not include stories, art and poems with lighter topics.
In 1977, con attendees got to see a zine put together before their eyes. See: The Cage.
