Denver Zine Fest E-mail List
Want to be the first to know about Denver Zine Fest happenings? Sign up for the DZF email list! Messages about the zine fest will be less frequent than this monthly newsletter, so it's perfect for out-of-towners who won't want to miss news about the zine fest, but can't make it to our other local events - although we'd love to keep you on this list too!

Our Facebook page is a great place to stay up to date on DZL happenings (besides this newsletter, of course).

Gentification Zine: 
Call for Submissions

Deadline: July 31, 2017
Submit to:

The Denver Zine Library is soliciting submissions for a zine anthology about gentrification in Denver. Submissions can include struggles, triumphs, moments of community, calls for help, or whatever feels right. We want this to be a place to pass the mic to folks who are most impacted by this issue, particularly people who have been displaced and/or have experienced homelessness, or who identify as queer, POC, trans or gender nonconforming, disabled, immigrant, or indigenous. Submissions can be written, but we also encourage art and other forms of expression.

We ask that submissions are emailed, but if you are unable to do this, you are welcome to drop it off at the Denver Zine Libary (we are open on Saturdays and Sundays between 11am-3pm) at 2400 Curtis Street (ring the bell at the 24th Street entrance).
