8th Annual Scranton Zinefest

$1,000 goal

Campaign created 2 months ago
The Scranton Zinefest is entering its 8th year in June of 2018. We are proud to bring such a unique event to Northeast Pennsylvania, merging creatives from a multitude of DIY art and writing circles. Every year, we gather people from areas such as Scranton, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, New York City, Baltimore, and Boston, establishing an epicenter of the curious and wonderful in printed media and handmade goods.

Along with the time, effort, and dedication of our volunteers who spend countless hours on logistics and promotion, this year, we also have the opporunity to host both a panel discussion and a renowned speaker to cap off our event. We are very excited for these two additions, but with limited funding, we hope to gather some funds from the community to help make process easier.

Your donation will aid in the coordination (offset costs for travel, room, and board) of our First Friday speaker (June 1, 2018), Julia Gorton. A 1970s no-wave photographer of punk rockers such as Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Blondie, Billy Idol, and more, Gorton was a publisher behind the scenes of the zine, Beat It! in her early years. She will be speaking on the production of zines and her experience in photography and graphic design. 

Additionally, your donation will go toward any additional set-up costs such as table rental, space rental, entertainment, promotion, advertising, printing, and more. It would mean the world to us if you would consider a donation today to keep the arts alive and well in Scranton.
