Now that I am for sures in Brighton for a while yet and have managed to tuck away a completed master’s dissertation I can finally return to concentrating on all that my sweatervest wardrobe endows: zines, zines, zines. I am eagerly piecing together a new queer, feminist, mental health perzine which will hopefully make its luscious ways to you before the end of the year. I just marked my calendar to head on over to the South East London Zinefest on 12th November. You may also catch me meandering awkwardly with a tote full of zines and a shy shuffle at the London Anarchist Bookfair. If you can’t make it to any of these and are still wanting to grab some of my zines, the on-line shop is newly restocked. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some zines to catch up on reading. Send me yours if you want me to make me smile!
In case you were feeling a bit in the pits about yet another gregorian calendar popping into the rubbish bin, here’s some zinester updates to tickle that geeky side of you into excitement.
Firstly, in all of my infinite tech savvy, I have managed to get to you lots of my zines, totally for free and accessible from anywhere in the world. Just go to the zine section on this website and get downloading.
The Graduating into Unemployment zine has gotten lots of really fantastic submissions which I’m in the midst of organising and putting into a beautiful compilation zine. There’s also still a chance of getting a piece of yours included, if you send it over to me asap.
I’m helping to organise the Brighton Zinefest, taking place on Feb 19 & 20th, which is set to be chock full of awesome workshops, zine stalls, music, and lovely zinesters. Contact us if you want to hold a zine stall or workshop, otherwise just mark it on your calendar and come check us out.
In my supreme zine excitement, Microcosm Publishing wants to stock my latest zine, Get A Grip! Plus, there’s a possibility that I may be getting inspired to churn out a second edition of the zine… so keep your eyes peeled ’till the next round of updates. See, so much zineing to anticipate in the new year, enjoy!
