Calling all zinesters, cartoonists, printmakers, crafters, bookbinders, and DIY creative-types everywhere!
Registration for the 2009 SF Zine Fest is now open... The SFZF is a great opportunity to sell, trade, or otherwise share your creations with the world. A relaxed, encouraging, and exciting environment, the SFZF is the place for budding self-publishers to meet other creative folks, take a workshop or two, and get involved with the terrific creative community San Francisco has to offer.
Here's some of the nice things we heard from exhibitors last year:
"... the vibe was great and everyone seemed enthusiastic and interested."
"Once again, you guys put on a great show!"
"We had a great time, we'll be back next year!"
What is the SF Zine Fest?
It's a FREE annual two-day conference for independent and underground publishing. Exhibitors come from all over the West Coast, and while the focus is on zines, all walks of DIY life are represented — comics, arts and crafts, literary presses, and more. SF Zine Fest was founded in 2002 by Jenn of Starfiend Distro.
SF Zine Fest 2009 is brought to you by the hard-working folks at Family Style, Miromi, New Lights Press, Monkey & Seal, and many other wonderful volunteers.

We are very excited to be returning to our new home at the San Francisco County Fair Building! The SF County Fair Building is easily accessible by bicycle (lots of parking right out front) and also by public transit: The N train and the 6, 16BX, 43, 44, and 71 bus lines all drop you off within a couple blocks of the Fest! Parking can be more difficult, the adjacent lot is for loading and unloading ONLY. There are some paid parking lots in the nearby Inner Sunset district.
"We did have to raise the fees this year due to increasing rental costs, but we tried very hard to keep the cost to you down - if you register before July 1 the fee is only $45/half, $90/full!"
