I really wish I spent more time updating this site. I’ve been pretty good at staying on top of zine events and making updates to shops and zine distros when people get me the information. But, I still need your help with getting the information! I thought I would have more time to make posts about interesting zine happenings in art or education, but I just lack the time. I set up a google alert for zines but I keep getting things for some councilman in LA with the last name “Zine” and a bunch of things about “e-zines”, and we all know that e-zines aren’t zines. I also thought I would have more energy and be able to post more about the zines events I was able to attend. All ready this year I have been to The L.A. Zine Fest, The Chicago Zine Fest, The Brooklyn Zine Fest, and AmaZine Day. I’ll also be at the Portland Zine Symposium and the ABQ Zine Fest. I am one of the moderators for the We <3 Zines Tumblr. I’m not sure how I was added to that and I’m not even sure who any of the other members are, but it is a nice little space on Tumblr.
Currently, I just donated to Erin Fae’s Kickstarter campaign to help them get from New Zealand to Halifax, Canada for the Robert’s Street Social Centre zine residency, I’m very slowly working on the new book version of Stolen Sharpie Revolution but I haven’t had much time. I’ll be launching a kickstarter or indiegogo campaign for that in the next few months and before that I’ll be asking for your various photos of Stolen Sharpie Revolution to use in the promo video. More on that later. I’m also working on the calendar of activities for International Zine Month in July! I should have that done and posted in the next couple of days.
That’s it for now!
