I want to hear your plans for International Zine Month. I’ve been adding events into the 31 activities calendar. I’ll also be adding the activities to the google calendar. You do know about the Google Calendar of Zine Events don’t you? You can add it to your own Google Calendar and see when there are zines events all around the world! Let me know about your zine events and I’ll add them to the calendar.
Ok, a big reason I picked July for International Zine Month is because that was the month of the 24 Hour Zine Thing. I think it is an awesome project and everyone some at least try it. Did you know that you need to sign up to be counted? Go here and sign up to be a part of the 24 Hour Zine Challenge.
That being said, The Portland Zine Symposium is hosting their 4th annual 24 Hour Zine challenge. This awesome event is a fundraiser for PZS and works like a charity walk. You sponsor a participant (or participants!) and you only have to pay-up if the participant/s finish the challenge! If you sponsor someone for at least $10 you will even receive the zine the participant makes! I have taken part in this event for the past two years and have finished both times. I will be participating again this year at this event that will be held at the new spacious Independent Publishing Resource Center in Portland, Oregon on 21 July. I would love love love it if you could help out the Portland Zine Symposium and sponsor me, Alex Wrekk, in the 24 hour zine challenge. There will also be live cams to watch our sleep deprived scribbling….and also so that you can laugh at us.
There is a new issue of Zine World out! Zine World #31 is available for you to purchase and pursue zine reviews and find some good new zines to read. The cover is really cool and looks like a hidden object game! Also, have you sent your zine to Zine World for review? You should do that. Here’s the info on how to do that including this handy form to fill out so they get all the details right.
This is an interesting article about zines libraries from a Library School!
And to sum all this up, here’s a cute comic about how trading zines is rad.
Greetings! I have a few zine things for you this week:

-Can’t make it to Paris? Want to have your zines on display in Paris? Send them to the Fanzines! Festival. I really love all the photos of the mail they have gotten!
-Do you have an event to add to the Zine Event listing page? Let me know! Did you know that you can actually add the Zine Event Google Calendar to your own Google calendar?
