Call for CZF 2016 workshops

Each year the Chicago Zine Fest holds an exciting exhibition featuring hundreds of zinesters, distros, independent presses, and artists. But, we’re also proud to offer a slate of interactive workshops, engaging panels, and interesting presentations from our peers, community partners, and invited guests.

Are you interested in hosting a workshop? Do you have an idea for a panel or the know-how for an instructive session? Is there something you’ve always felt was missing from our programming? We wanna hear about it!

Send us your workshop proposals by Sunday January 31st by submitting this form. We’ll be in touch by the end of February regarding our workshop selections.
