Zine Fest Houston Compilation 2013
Zine Fest Houston is taking submissions for its 2013 compilation! Our theme this year is 'The Zinester's Guide to Houston' - Details and submission deadline info below!
The zine will be in black and white, with a full color cover. Each page will be 8 ½” tall by 5 ½”. Contributor credits and contact information will be featured in the zine as well, so please include with your submission a 1-2 sentence bio and your contact info.
We are hoping to get a microgrant to cover the cost of printing. If this works out, we will give away copies. If we do not get a microgrant, we’ll sell the zine near cost (hoping to sell it for $5 at most). All funds will go towards paying for printing, and any extra money will go towards promoting this year’s Zine Fest Houston and printing next year's sampler.
We are limiting the contributions to zine creators who have either tabled at a Zine Fest Houston, or live in Houston or the surrounding areas. We want to keep the zine focused on Houston, natch.
We want to have the zine ready for this year’s Houston Indie Book Fest. The deadline for submissions is March 10th.
What to submit
The concept of this year’s zine is going to be “The Zinester’s Guide to Houston,” with two sections separated into “Words” and “Images.” The “Words” section will feature writing and the “Images” section will feature drawing and comics. There is a 2 page maximum to keep the zine from being unwieldy.
We want the pages to reflect each contributor, so please do not submit incomplete pages. Pages should be 8 1/2" by 5 1/2".
We encourage you to make new work for this year’s zine compilation theme, but we understand that there are time constraints! :)
