Short Run Comix & Arts Festival Returns

Seattle’s book festival dedicated to micropress publishing and graphic literature returns in November.  Approximately 4,000 people attend the annual free event at the Seattle Center.

The curated show is currently accepting applications for exhibitors. Applications will be accepted until July 31, 2019. Final list of exhibitors will be selected by the Short Run Board of Directors and the organization’s Advisory Board made up of artists and art enthusiasts. “This is a book festival, so be prepared to demonstrate that your table space will feature at least 75% books. Your prints, t-shirts, original drawings, pins, buttons, etc.. are welcome, but should take up 25% or less of your merchandise,” say the organizers. Short Run is committed to opening up space to new artists and publishers every year.
