If you’re in the Bay Area in August and are interested in homemade zines, be sure to put this event on your radar. The annual SF Zine Fest is a “free 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.” Their special guest this year is Xeric Award-winning cartoonist Andy Hartzell. If you’ve got something you want to share as an exhibitor, now’s the time to get your application in. Everything you need to know is on their site.
