Artist Call – Bookish Beasts: zine and comics fest

BOOKISH BEASTS: Center for Sex and Culture is looking for zine and comic book makers!

After the success and fun of last year’s fest, we are inspired to bring together and try to grow the audiences of local zine and comics artists who make sexy books. Center for Sex & Culture is a fantastic multi-use space that is perfect for gathering local artists whose works need to be celebrated for their blatant hotness.

Bookish Beasts is a one-day zine fest for the creators of art, books and comics featuring content on sexuality, gender and erotica. We aim to give artists the opportunity to peddle their wares, and connect with local readers who love and collect adult material.

The zine fest is one day. Sunday, July 13th from noon to 5 pm. This event is free to the public, but you must be over 18 to attend.

CSC provides judgment-free education, cultural events, a library/media archive, and other resources to audiences across the sexual and gender spectrum; and to research and disseminate factual information, framing and informing issues of public policy and public health. Please consider donating copies of your work to the library and helping spread the word about this great resource. All of CSC’s books are searchable through Goodreads and CSC’s zine database:
