2021 Alt Press Fest Open Call for Zines and Zinesters


Alt Press Fest is a celebration of local zines and the folks who make them. Our mission is to support the Salt Lake City zine community and provide a platform for emerging artists to showcase their work and connect with others. This year, APF will celebrate its 13th year with events hosted both virtually and in-person at various City Library locations, throughout the week of October 10.

Zinemaking has deep roots in freedom of press, protest, and social justice. We know that art and self-expression flourish during challenging times and we acknowledge the importance of uplifting those who aren’t given prominent voices through mainstream channels.

In this spirit, this year we would like to share work from creators of historically marginalized identities by offering modest honorariums in exchange for zines that will be included in grab bags for patrons. These historically marginalized identities include (but aren’t limited to) age, ability, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, country of origin.

Whether you qualify for our honorarium or not, this year’s fest will offer everyone various opportunities to participate:

  • Zine Grab Bag
  • Open Mic & Zine Making
  • Teen Zine Extravaganza
  • Panel Discussion
  • Zine Trading Wall
  • Virtual Artist Gallery
  • Family Book Arts Workshop
