Join EXILE for the 2017 Miami Zine Fair in partnership with University of Miami’s Special Collections and O, Miami Poetry Festival at the Lowe Art Museum. The Miami Zine Fair features over 150 local artists, writers, publishers, and activists gathered together on the University of Miami campus, with an educational symposium hosted by the University of Miami’s own Special Collections. Celebrate our city's dynamic print culture, and explore zines from an expanse of independent self publishers and small presses. Get to know local zinesters as you browse the fair, and enjoy live printing, performances, multilingual workshops, and events throughout the day.
It is free to attend and participate. Interested in having a table? Please sign up here!

Safer Space Policy: We welcome YOU.
The Miami Zine Fair 2017 is a Safer Space, which means the event is intended to be an experience free of disrespectful behaviors, words and actions. We want to insure that the Zine Fair is a harassment-free environment for anyone regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity.
During the events this weekend, we expect that our participants:
Respect the opinions, beliefs and identities of others.
Practice respect for others’ physical and emotional boundaries.
Always receive explicit verbal consent when taking a photo of someone else or crossing other personal boundaries.
Are responsible for their actions and aware of the impact they may have on others.
EXILE reserves the right to ask violators of the MZF’s Safer Spaces Policy to change or address their behavior(s) or language. If individuals violating the policy are unable to amend their offensive behavior, they will be asked to leave the event.
Our Safer Spaces policy is inspired by the framework of other zine fairs around the country who openly encourage inclusion and equality. We would like to credit the following for informing the Miami Zine Fair’s safer space: Chicago Zine Fest, Toronto Queer Zine Fair, San Francisco Zine Fest, Lexington Ephemera Fest, among many others.
Please note University of Miami is a smoke free campus!
The 2017 Miami Zine Fair is sponsored in part by the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the State of Florida.
