ABQ Zine Fest

The mission of the ABQ Zine Fest is to bring zinesters in the city together— to affirm the exciting and vibrant zine culture that exists in Albuquerque, and to foster a non-competitive, queer-friendly, ethnic-rich environment of creation in written, zine-ic form. Through an exchange of ideas, energy, skill sets, discussions and workshops, ABQ Zine Fest hopes to nourish the expansion of zine creation in Albuquerque, and to highlight the diversity of zine making.
Sign-up for their newsletter on google groups, like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. They’re on We Make Zines, too. If you’re a zinester, and you’d like to table about ABQZF, registration is open. Click here!

FREE RIDE UPDATE: SLC Queer/Feminist Zine Fest 2012

Hi y’all,

The submission deadline was October 25, so we are no longer reviewing applications from folks to attend the SLC Queer/Feminist Zine Fest on November 10. All those who submitted prior to the deadline and met the criteria will be sponsored, and have been notified.

We know this sponsorship offering limited who could participate (we’re 100% DIY and volunteer). We were only able to sponsor POC folks who could get to NYC on their own and we agreed to cover their travel to SLC and back to the NYC pickup point.

It’s clear that many of you in other states are interested in attending zine fests, and need help with covering the costs. 

We hope that zine fest organizers and zine librarians at academic institutions consider this need for future events and how financial hardship prevents some people from participating. By combining funding sources from different departments and partnering with the on-campus zine fest or community zine fest to do additional fundraising, it is possible to offer a few sponsorships.

We would especially like to see more POC attend these events. 

It’s important to build community and work through class struggle together. With that in mind, we will be offering sponsorship to some folks - REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY LIVE IN THE WORLD - to attend our first national poc zinester + ally conference in 2014. Stay tuned for updates.

<3

COMMUNITY: If you would like to see more zine fests and other DIY events help combat class struggle by working in sponsorships, reblog this post and add the name of the fest or event you’d like to see this happen at and why this is important to you.

If you have time, be sure to also contact the organizers directly and ask them to create a sponsorship program so that some folks facing financial hardship can attend and participate. We’ll do the same!

Love,

POC Zine Project

Report back from SF Zinefest 2012: POC Zinester Edition! *Pt 1 of 4*

On September 1, 2012, POC Zine Project’s Daniela Capistrano attended SF Zinefest, on a mission to meet zinesters of color. This is what she saw and who she found:

Woo! Made it <3 #sfzinefest

I was in San Francisco for work but wanted to find some spare moments to do zine research. I actually showed up at SF Zinefest one hour before it was over (eep!), so I didn’t have a lot of time to browse. I immediately went into crazy-focused mode and sought out zinesters of color - for personal enjoyment and also to get more zines for the archive.

Luckily, within minutes of arriving, I found Liz Mayorga of Spunky Cat Comix!

This awesome chica was there tabling with her zines, including her latest creation Monstrous Love Stories.

Liz with her new #poczine Monstrous <3

I actually knew about her because I ordered some of her older zines for the archives a few weeks prior to arriving in SF. It was a great coincidence that she was at SF Zinefest too! Here are some of her answers from our brief Twitter interview on @poczineproject:

Why she made Monstrous Love Stories:

Why the Latino Comic Expo is a great resource for her and other poc zinesters:

Why Liz loves making zines:

Live-tweeting Liz’s interview was fun but it was also distracting me from her creations, so we stopped at three questions and I browsed her table.

Liz Mayorga

Liz hooked me up with a list of all the poc zinesters she knew about who were at SFZinefest. This was incredibly helpful, because even though I couldn’t meet up with all of them that day, at least I have this list for following up after the tour!

List of poc zinesters at SFZinefest 2012

Liz also gave me a flyer for Latino Comic Expo. I can’t wait to attend next year for POC Zine Project!

Latino Comic Expo flyer

Big thanks again to Liz for pointing me to new resources and being so welcoming!

Daniela has to pick up the POC Zine Project Race Riot! tour vehicle now, so stay tuned for three more poc zinester profiles from SF Zinefest. We’ll post them later tonight and tomorrow!
