Category: CZF 2013 (page 1 of 5)

Want to see what you missed or relive what you didn’t?

We have a couple of things that you might find interesting. First off is the full transcript from this year’s panel, Writing about Health, Disability, and Accessibility in Zines: A Panel with Kerri Radley, Maranda Elizabeth, and Dave Roche, hosted by Jami Sailor. It isn’t pretty, but it is interesting. Also, enjoy the (bleep)s.

Second, we have a Prezi from the wonderful Jenna Brager, who led a In The Gutter: A Super-Quick Intro To Writing/Drawing Comics this year.

If you have anything you presented that you would like to share with us or if you know of something posted online from this year’s fest, please let us know!

Thank you and a post-CZF survey

All of us over here at CZF wanted to say thank you to all of the volunteers, exhibitors, attendees, panel members, readers, sponsors, donors, places to make copies, and anyone else that had anything at all to do with making CZF 2013 an amazing time. We will never be able to tell you how much it means to us!

The only way for us to make sure CZF keeps getting better is to hear what you liked and didn’t like about this year’s fest. We’d also love to hear any new ideas you have. We’ll be having an open meeting soon (more on that to come at a later date) and our email address is always being checked – chicagozinefest@gmail.com. But, while we’ve got your attention, here’s our survey.

It’s almost here!

We have more detailed information on locations, times, and accessibility on our CZF 2013 info page, so that should have everything you need to know.

We’ve been working very hard on this for a long time, so we really hope everyone has the best time at all the events they are able to attend!

Still haven’t figured out how to get here or where to stay?

Well, I guess you’d better check out the housing/rideshare post. Just add a comment and see if anyone can help you out…or maybe help someone else out.

(Posts must be approved, so there can be up to a 24-hour lag time for comments to be posted.)

Have a question?

Well, if it’s about this year’s zine fest, odds are the answer can be found on our updated info page. We have the skinny on parking, driving, and basically any transportation option to each of this year’s events. We didn’t include anything about private jets, but we figured if you were that rich, you probably have someone to figure this sort of thing out for you.

Let’s make some signs!

It’s a CZF tradition to meet up a few weeks before the zine fest to make some informational / directional posters to hang at the fest. Want to help us make some signs? There’s no artistic requirements! We’ll supply the materials — all you have to do is show up! Join us on Sunday, February 24th from 2-4pm at Read/Write Library (914 N. California).

Facebook event here!
