Deadline Extension and Zine Availability FAQ

Can I have a deadline extension?

Okay, so we've gotten some great content already, but we also have some people who have asked for deadline extensions. After checking our schedules we've decided that we will be able to extend the deadline to May 15th.

If you've already submitted you can continue to tinker with your piece and resubmit it, but whatever we have by May 15th is what's going in the zine.

Also, please submit a bio with your contribution. This can contain pretty much whatever you want, but should include the name you want printed with the story. Other info could include email, Twitter, or website addresses, where you work or go to school, and how awesome you are.

Remember to send your submissions and bios to twofistedlibrarians@gmail.com.

How long should my submission be?

We don't have any strict guidelines for length, but try not to make it too long. If we feel your story is too long we will ask you to try to shorten its length.

Remember that this is going to be a half size (5 1/2" x 8 1/2", the size of a sheet of paper folded in half), so if you're creating artwork try to format it for that size.

How short can my submission be?

As short as you want! If you want to create something that's less than a page long, that's totally fine!

Where will I be able to get the zine?

So far there are three events where you'll be able to get a copy of Two Fisted Librarians.

June 27th - July 2nd The Zine Pavilion at the ALA (American Library Association) Conference in Chicago, Illinois.

July 13th - 14th The Iowa City Zine Librarian (un)Conference in Iowa City, Iowa.

August 10th - 11th The Portland Zine Symposium in Portland, Oregon.

We're open to attending other events, so if you think there's one we should go to let us know and we'll see if we can make it!

The zine will also be available to order online at some point later in the summer, we'll let you know when we have more details.

Do you have any other questions? Please send them to twofistedlibrarians@gmail.com.
