a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Richmond Zine Fest 2009 is currently being organized and we're looking for a few more people to help be core organizers. Core organizers are responsible for the logistics of the event: settling on a venue, date (which is already somewhat settled), as well as figuring out how to finance and promote the event, and taking care of any other smaller issues concerning the Richmond Zine Fest.
We're currently a group of 4 or 5 women who are friendly and get along really well. We individually work on different types of zines (personal, poetry, anarchist, film). Meetings are currently held about once or twice a month (usually on Thursday evenings), and we usually hold more meetings in the last month or two before the Richmond Zine Fest. A lot of planning and discussion in between meetings is done via an e-mail list.
We need people who can bring new and reasonable ideas to the group, but can also follow them up. This is a group of volunteers. We work with an extremely limited budget, and rely entirely on fundraising and donations to put together the Richmond Zine Fest.
If you would be interested in helping organize the 2009 Richmond Zine Fest, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next meeting is Thursday, March 5th.
