Zine Fest Houston 2016 Compilation submissions are OPEN!

8 Mar

Hi zinesters,

Hope everyone’s 2016 is off to a good start!

We’re excited to announce the official call for submissions for the 2016 Zine Fest Houston compilation! Local illustrator, writer and comic artist Jessi Jordan will be our featured artist for 2016, and will be designing the cover for the compilation, among other projects. Thanks, Jessi!

The theme of this year’s Zine Fest Houston is going to be “The Year of the Ama-Zines”

  IN A WORLD… BESET BY HATERS…AN AGE OF CHAOS… WHO WILL RISE TO DEFEND PRINT CULTURE? Out of the mists of time, heroes will appear: IT IS THE AGE OF THE AMA-ZINES! Warriors of the written word, the drawn line, and clandestine workplace copy making have gathered for battle this year on the fields of publishing in this, THE HEROIC PAGE. What adventures will our heroes have? Upon what noble struggle will they stake their fate? FIND OUT IN 2016, THE YEAR OF THE AMA-ZINES!


You can view details on what to submit for the compilation HERE. The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 11. Please let us know if you would like us to send you the details in a different format for any reason and don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions as well.

We are really excited for Zine Fest Houston this year and hope you are too!

Zine Picnic + Swap!

5 Mar


Coming Sunday, April 7 from 1-5pm at Mandell Park!

Bring your favorite dish/drink, blankets and zines to swap and share! What better way to spend a Sunday than eating great food, hanging out in the sun and celebrating in the joy that self-made publications can bring? This picnic is super casual, so feel free to bring your friends and/or family!

Don’t worry if you don’t have a zine to share. There will be tons of zines to browse and look at!

In addition, The Billy Pilgrim Traveling Library, a new Houston-based bookmobile, will be on hand during the picnic to accept zine donations to their collection!
