We are opening tabling until early January 2017. If you are sure you’d like to table please get in touch as soon as you can. We hope to announce all the exhibitors by the end of January.
Tabling criteria: We may give priority to distros for full tables so please let us know if you’d be willing to take a half table. Please only book a half table if you can, so we can ensure as many people get tables as possible. Unfortunately we have fewer tables than last year, so get in quick!
Tables are approx 60cm x 120cm (2ft x 4ft) and you can book a full table or half table. If you want to share with someone in particular or you want to book together that’s cool, just let us know.
Tables are £10 for a full table and £5 for a half table. Don’t worry if you only have a couple of zines, there will be a communal table too which we will ask you to staff for a short while on a rota.
Payment will be taken via paypal invoices at the time of confirmation. In the case of cancellation, refunds on tabling costs will be be made after 1 April.
Artists, Crafters and Publishers
This event is a zine fest first and foremost. However, In recognition of the community links between zines, spoken word and poetry publishing, artist books, illustration, print and crafting, we have decided to open a limited number of half tables to artist book or poetry publishers, small press and crafters at the rate of £10 per half table. This reflects the higher pricing, cultural aesthetic, or for-profit ethos of a number of these media. Please apply with a link to your work and we will get back to you.
How can you tell if you should pay the higher rate? If you are an artist, designer or art/design student, if you call your work artist books, books, or chapbooks, as opposed to zines, if the majority of what you sell is craft items, prints, stationery or other ephemera, or if you plan to sell a majority of individual items at £4 or more each retail, these are all good indicators.
We support and value the zine scene for cultivating an ethos of not-for-profit, small scale, DIY publications and shared experience. We also encourage tablers and guests to bring free zines to leave on a free table, and be up for trading zines.
