A lit-zine is a zine which is part of the literary underground culture. In lieu of making cold submissions to corporate publishers -- whose editors usually only deal with agented work, especially since the intense media consolidation of the past two decades -- literary zine writers are printing their own stories/novels and distributing them via the current "underground railroad," primarily through websites and A Reader's Guide to the Underground Press.
