Although SF Zine Fest is all about tables and tables of choice zines, comics, phenomenal DIY doodads, and more -- psst, be sure to read Laura Beck's article on making her very first zine -- it's also a great opportunity to learn from a bevvy of successful independent publishers and local scribes. This year's workshop and panel roster promises to have something for every zine geek, and then some. Behold.
2010 Workshops & Panels - Saturday:
No, You Do It: Spotlight on Jesse Reklaw
• 1:30 - 2:20
Special Guest Jesse Reklaw unveils his new publishing ethos of NYDI: "No, You Do It." Chronicling 20 years of experience with publishing, from photocopied zines to hardback books by "real" publishers, Jesse shares what he learned along the way about the business and theory of publishing; working with editors, distributors, and agents; new formats like websites, e-books, and print-on-demand; as well as the history of publishing and some thoughts about its future. Audience Q+A to follow.
Punk Tabloid Panel

In conjunction with the SFZF's first-ever art exhibition, the panel for "Punk Tabloid" will feature creators V. Vale (Search & Destroy) and John Gullak (Another Room Magazine). Moderated by Matt Wobensmith of Goteblüd, this panel discussion will focus on the history of these late 70s Bay Area large format zines, as well as the environment and process that produced them.
