 6/3/2023 at Goofball Sk8boards and

You can participate at KCZC #8 in-person or online. Everyone who applies and is accepted will get a virtual table space on our online zinester directory, and we’ll be featuring both in-person and virtual tablers in the free program we distribute the day of the event. You can also apply to table in-person at the convention on 6/3/23.

Applications open on Tuesday March 21st. Once applications close, we will review the submissions and let you know if you have been accepted or waitlisted.

KC Zine Con is a volunteer-run organization that relies on your support to fund programming and our annual convention! Since 2018, we have been able to make table fees sliding scale/pay-what-you-can, and we are happy to say that this will continue in 2023.

Our suggested sliding scale* for table payments are:
Only a virtual table: $5 – $15
Half table: $10 – $20
Full table: $20 – $40

We will not be taking any table payments until application acceptance letters are sent. You will be notified by email if your application has been accepted mid April (exact date tbd)

*Please note that we will not refuse anyone for lack of funds, if payment is a barrier for you please reach out to us at kczinecon(at) This resource may be helpful if sliding scale payment is new to you OR if you are unsure what amount to pay <3
