TCAF: Broken Pencil Presents: The Small Press Schooner

Broken Pencil Presents: The Toronto Small Press Schooner Room

As part of TCAF’s commitment to local Toronto and DIY artists, we’ve teamed up with indy/arts mag Broken Pencil and the editors of the WOWEE ZONK anthology to create The Toronto Small Press Schooner Room, an exciting new exhibition space at the 2010 Toronto Comic Arts Festival.

Due to limited available space at TCAF, The Festival and the members of Wowee Zonk will be curating Small Press Schooner — an area reserved specifically for local creators with a unique/DIY approach to comics.

While Small Press Schooner will be open for the entirety of TCAF 2010, those applicants chosen to exhibit will be divided between showing on either the Saturday or the Sunday of the festival. It is very important to note: If you are chosen to exhibit with Small Press Schooner, you will be doing so for only one day of the festival.This timetable will be compiled once all applications have been received and all exhibitors decided upon. All exhibitors chosen will pay a minimal fee of $10 for their space.

To speed up our process this year, we’re asking all creators, collectives, and self-publishers interested in exhibiting at the Small Press Schooner to register online at

Please note that registering does not guarantee table space at the TCAF/ Broken Pencil Small Press Schooner. Registration closes March 27, 2010. Exhibitors will be chosen by Chris Butcher and Wowee Zonk based on a number of criteria, so please be thorough in filling out the form below. We’ll be contacting everyone on or by April 8, 2010 to let them know if their registration and table space requests have been accepted.

If you have any problems or questions, please contact
