2020 Zinefest Postponed

We so appreciate your support and enthusiasm, and are heartbroken to share the news that we’ll be postponing the zinefest to a later date. We love the zinefest so much, and look forward to a future gathering. 

We reached out to tablers for feedback – and thank you so much to everyone who shared their thoughts! There was a sense of concern about large group settings, especially by immuno-compromised folks and those who care for children or live with older adults. Also, as you are probably aware, many schools, including Barnard College, have now canceled all on-site classes/events through the end of March. We’ll be in touch about ways to showcase individual zinesters on social media & online. Everyone puts a lot of work into the event, and we would like to help share out the zine magic. 

Finally, we’d like to acknowledge community resilience – especially those facing the challenges of compromised immune systems, mental health issues, ageism, and racism during this time. For those facing job instability, you have our support. 

Thank you to all again for your zine-y energy, and we look forward to sharing the zinefest postponement date soon. 

With warmth & appreciation, 

Elvis, Jenna, Kate, Lili, Pooja, and Suze

This email went out out to tablers about ten days ago, but it seems that it went straight to spam, so here it is, on the internet, for all to see:

Dear You,

Thank you so much for applying to table at the 2019 Feminist Zinefest. We had a wonderful response–160 applications, the most ever. While that is great news, signaling a tremendous investment in feminist zine culture in NYC and beyond, space is finite, so we anticipate not having enough space to accommodate everyone. The James Room at Barnard has room for 33 full tables (i.e., 66 half tables), but we will try to add tables in other rooms on the same floor to create more space.
