Prisoners Literature Project

Prisoners Literature Project at San Francisco Zine Fest this September!

July 2017  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

The Prisoners Literature Project will have a table – selling remnant books & giving out bookmarks – at the San Francisco Zine Fest on September 3rd!

The exhibitor list for the festival has just been announced, and includes hundreds of amazing creators, organizations, and other notables.

As for the event itself, founded in 2001, San Francisco Zine Fest seeks to advance the do-it-yourself ethos by fostering community throughout the Bay Area. In its annual festival and its accompanying panels and workshops, it celebrates and support independent writers, artists and creators, allowing them to share their work with an ever-growing audience in exhibitions and public events.

We look forward to seeing you at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park for Zine Fest on September 3rd, if you can make it!
