a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Calling all ambitious zinesters! You're invited to the 4th Annual 24hr Zine Challenge presented by the Portland Zine Symposium and the Independent Publishing Resource Center...
Zines are awesome and July is International Zine Month! Get yourself one more zine finished for your PZS table, make some new friends over the dizzying madness of staying up too many hours, and help support the Portland Zine Symposium!
In order to meet the challenge, the PZS 24hr Zine Challengers MUST make a 24-page zine of an original, on-the-spot conception straight up to the final product in 24 hours straight. The zine should be of suitable size and technical difficulty so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters. The PZS 24hr Zine Challenge is brought to you by Portland Zine Symposium and the IPRC.
We will be providing some supplies (paper, glue, scissors, etc), snacks, and drink. Anything you can bring will help. Bring any supplies you normally like to make zines with that you just can't live without! Also, you might want to bring pillows, snacks, and blankets... This year, the IPRC has a bigger space than ever, so our 24 hours will be nice and roomy with lots of tables and even a couch and comfy chairs in the member's lounge.
We are also asking registrants for a $5 donation which will help us cover any costs for supplies and food that are not donated, so we can make sure you're well fed and fully supplied. The IPRC has two copy machines (one is now in color!) on hand to help you create your fabulous zine, available for 5 cents per side for members (trial membership is $25) and 10 cents per side for nonmembers. Color copies are 37 cents per side (though that price may change).
We will be providing coffee and some food during the event as well. Let us know if you are a local business that would like to donate to this event, which would also get you listed as a PZS 2012 Donor. So far, we have pizza, coffee from Stumptown Coffee, and more to come!
