Zine Fest Day 2!

Are you ready for more awesomeness! We are! Come join us at the SF County Fair BLDG all day from 11-6 to meet over 100 zinesters, cartoonists, printmakers, and other DIY creators... From the political to the personal, from tear-jerking tales to hilarious comic strips, from the arty to the earnest, we've got a bit of something for everyone!

Today's workshops, panels, and readings:

Bookbinding: Basics & Beyond
• 12:30 – 1:45
Ready to take your zines beyond the staple? Would you like to learn how to create blank journals or other small books? We will cover a variety of useful bookbinding techniques, including single-sheet folded books, single & double signature pamphlet stitch, stab binding, and more. Something for all skill levels! Materials included.

DIY and Small-Press Journalism
• 2:00 – 2:50
Small press journalism -- you know, like, on paper -- is enjoying a bit of a renaissance in the Bay Area as of late. Come hear this star-studded panel discuss the trials and tribulations (and the rewards!) of the small press as old media meets new. Bring your tough questions and notepads. Our all-star panelists include Susie Cagle (journalist, cartoonist, critic about town), Michael Stoll (founder, SF Public Press), Dan Archer (reportage cartoonist and Knight fellow at Stanford), Josh Wilson (proprietor, Independent Arts + Media), Antonio Roman-Alcala (founder, SF Arts + Politics zine), and Mat Honan (Longshot Mag).
