Inspired by regional DIY publishing festivals like the Buffalo Small Press Festival, the Brooklyn Zine Fest, and Toronto’s Canzine, Syracuse in Print is a day-long celebration of print culture, where local authors sell, trade, or barter handmade books, comics, prints, chapbooks, zines, buttons, posters, stickers, and other ephemera. Because Syracuse residents have gripping stories, remarkable histories, important arguments, and innovative ideas that simply need to be shared, throughout the year Syracuse In Print hosts zine- and bookmaking workshops in various Syracuse communities — Westcott, the Near West Side, Eastwood, etc. — all the while soliciting interest for the festival. The first event will take place in September 2015.

If you are interested in taking part, but are not sure how to make your own publication, sign up for a workshop.
