Zine News Round up

Greetings! I am now back in rainy cold Portland after spending almost a week in sunny southern California. I’m hoping I can head to a warmer climate for Presidents Day next year. You folks taking about the Hawaii zine fest, I’m looking at you!

L.A. was great! I got to meet lots of new and old zine friends. The space was awesome, on the second floor of a book shop, and the turn out was incredible! Seriously, the place was packed with people all absorbing the print goodness. There was lots of press leading up to the event and this is an interesting piece about the V.Vale and Henry Rollins talk that happened after the actual zine fest. You should read it.

The 2011 Revenge of print was so successful that they fine folks at Atomic Books are gonna do it again! Check out .

This weekend is the 1st NYC Feminist Zine Fest and I’m super bummed that I can’t be there. But, You can read articles here and here about it.

We have final confirmation on ZOE (Zine Organizers Event) This is an even that will take place the day after the Chicago Zine Fest. We are inviting zine event organizers and those that would like to start zine events to come and chat and learn from each other. It should be a great time.
