Sell Zines at the Zine Sale (aka tabling) 2-5pm
Do you make a zine or maybe a whole bunch? Sign up for a half table space – approximately 3 feet x 30 inches – to sell your zines during the Zine Sale. There are only 20 half table spaces available, so sign up asap to secure your spot. Registration for tabling is $10, or if you sign up for tabling and the demo workshops in the morning, it’s just $15 for both!
If tabling (selling zines), additional information about your zine will be requested. Tabling spots limited, so sign up early to reserve your place. All tabling Zine Makers will have their zines featured on the Roach Social Zinefest page.
Learn new things at Demo Workshops with Local Zine Makers 10am – 12:30pm
This is a great way to spend your late morning. Each session is approximately an hour long. You start out the morning in one, then finish up with the other. When you sign up, you don’t have to choose which to go to, just $10 gets you into both skill building sessions. Or, if you are tabling, it’s only $15 to table and attend the demos!
Session 1: Collage with Deb Anders Bond
Session 2: Making Zines with Robert Stephens
Want to help out at the Roach Social Zinefest? That would be great! There are a ton of things that need doing. We need help with set-up and tear down, staffing the info table, hanging with folks while they draw portraits and make zines, table sitting for folks who need a break, and a bunch of other stuff. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a volunteer listing.
Spread the Word
We want as many people as possible to learn about and enjoy zines! It only takes a minute to help spread the word. Post, tweet, share anything about the fest – are you signed up for the demos? selling your zine? heading over for the sale? You can also print off fliers and posters and hang them in your favorite local shops. Just head over to roach-motel.com/zinefest/promo for web banners, poster and flier pdf, and details about the fest.
