We loved the community spirit of TCZF 2017 and we hope you did too! So many thank yous to all the exhibitors, volunteers, donors, and everyone who was a part of the fest!! We couldn’t have done it without you. 💗
The organizers of the Twin Cities Zine Fest regret that that date of this year’s TCZF prevents attendance by those who observe Yom Kippur. When choosing the date of year’s fest, we had a very limited selection of dates available that did not conflict with other zine fests or MCBA events. When choosing dates in the future, we will do our best to avoid excluding any members of our community. We apologize for our oversight.
We’ve got some super fun workshops and activities lined up for you during this year’s TCZF on September 30th!
• 12:00 to 1:00 A Brief History of Comics: Guy Thomas presents a history of comics, from historical proto-sequential art to the modern day. Come learn about and discuss all things comic!
• 1:30 to 2:30 Doodle Jam!: Logan Kruidenier hosts a one-hour doodle jam! This workshop includes exercises that spotlight quick and easy processes to unblock your brain and create all kinds of art.
• 3:00 to 4:00 Mini Zine Storage Boxes: Carolyn Swiszcz teaches you how to make a slipcover box for your zines! Using found or recycled materials, you’ll walk away with a cool way to display your zines.
• Throughout the day Monica Edwards Larson will be demonstrating letterpress printing on the Sister Black (Bike) Press, a mobile printing and publishing studio.
We had over 125 people apply to table at #TCZF2017!! Far more than we had anticipated, and more than we have space for, unfortunately! If you’re on the wait list, don’t despair—there’s a good chance you’ll get in. There were two people who didn’t leave an email address on their registration form, so if you applied to table but didn’t receive a notification email, let us know.
Join us for the 2nd Annual Twin Cities Zine Fest bingo night benefit Friday July 14th at Seward Community Cafe! There will be prizes, food, and fun! $1 rounds, $5 blackout rounds. The evening will be hosted by The Fashion Ration‘s Aunt Fancy! All proceeds will benefit this year’s TCZF! Invite your friends at our Facebook event.
