Announcing Print & Resist 2014!

We are gearing up for the 2014 Print & Resist festival of zines, prints, posters, poetry, letterpress, and design!  The big news for 2014?  The Print & Resist Collective has booked a new venue for the event: the Central [downtown] Branch of the Madison Public Library!  We’re partnering with the folks who run the Wisconsin Book Festival, the Bubbler, and other fantastic resources accessible to the Madison community and beyond.  We are immensely grateful that the library is sharing their popular, versatile, and comfortable space with us for this year’s event.

We’re preparing to send out invitations to artists, writers, and zinesters in the midwest and beyond later this week.  In the meantime, we invite you to look at this year’s call-for-submissions on our 2014 Exhibitors page.

The event will be held Saturday, November 1st, from 11am to 5pm.  Applications for a table or workshop must be submitted by October 1st.  We’re excited to hear from you, and hope you can join us in celebration of everything print!

THANK YOU for all who participated in the first annual Print & Resist.  Stemming from a long tradition of Madison Zine Fest, this year’s event brought together printers, zinesters, authors, artists, and activists, from Madison, the midwest, and beyond.  We would love to hear your feedback on what you liked this year, and what we can improve upon for next.  Please send your ideas to madisonprintandresist@gmail.com, or comment below.

Special thanks go to student journalist Chali Pittman for writing an article on Print & Resist for the UW’s Badger Herald.  Her article can be found here.

We are also grateful for the folks at Helen C. White College Library who loaned us space for the event.

Our team has begun brainstorming ideas for next year’s Print & Resist, so please check back for updates!

Call for Participation

Madison Print & Resist is a day-long festival of zines, political print media, artisanal books, grassroots journals, and experimental publications. As a part of the Wisconsin Book Festival, and with roots in the former Madison Zinefest, Print & Resist will bring together more than twenty-five dedicated and celebrated artists, writers, and collectives. They will be offering table displays of their creations, collaborative projects, and community productions in the well-trafficked, comfortable social study room on the first floor of the Helen White College Library (600 N Park St) at UW-Madison, Saturday, October 19, 2013. The event runs from 11 AM – 5 PM.

We invite book artists, poster makers, zinesters, concrete poets, letterpressers, and activist designers to apply for one of a limited number of tables we have available. You will be joining confirmed exhibitors like Xexoxial, Pioneers Press, and Just Seeds. There is neither a table fee nor an application fee. We ask for a tiny 5% commission on any sales you may conduct at the event, and all the proceeds go toward future event costs.

Please send us a description of your books, your zines, your prints, your stickers, or what have you. What are they about? How are they made? Do you have a philosophy or purpose? Are you handling other people’s work? Some pics would be nice, too, but are not required.

Tables are shareable, so pair up with a friend if you don’t have enough stuff to fill a 4×6 table by yourself. If you have an idea for a demonstration or skills-based workshop, please let us know, we have tables for that as well. If you would be coming from out of town, we have no travel funds available but can help with finding free lodging for you.

Deadline for application is midnight on Sunday, September 15. We will get back to you by the end of Friday, September 20.

Applications or questions may be submitted by email to madisonprintandresist@gmail.com
