The 2024 iteration of Short Run will come with a slightly revised name.
With a plethora of zine fests and art book fairs being held around the country, we believe it’s a good time for us to commit our show solely to alternative comics/comix!! There are so many good comics being made all over the world and we want to double-down on what we do well, bringing you some of the best of what’s out there.
We know that some of the most innovative and exciting work in comics is happening in hybrid forms. Zines and art books with comic content, image + text story-telling, and graphic illustration will still be considered. There will be zines and art books that will fall into a gray area – that is why every application is carefully reviewed.
And remember: Short Run celebrates the art of storytelling and print books. Please limit the amount of stickers, prints, cards, or apparel at your table and do not bring games, jewelry, or other crafts.
Here is a list of other fairs/fests/shows, as well as resources, in Washington State.
Exhibitor applications will open again on June 1, 2024.
