We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

we just got the dates confirmed today! It's not going to be at the ballroom like past years, but at the Portland State Univeristy Gymnasium instead. Here's all the info you many need:

10th Portland Zine Symposium
August 28-29, 2010!

The Portland Zine Symposium includes workshops, panels, discussions, and raffles. As well as tables upon tables of creative folks trading, buying and selling zines. Admission is free.

The Portland Zine Symposium aims to create greater communication and community between diverse creators of independent media and art. This fun and free event helps people promote their work and to share skills and information related to zines and zine culture. Through workshops, panels and discussions, Portland Zine Symposium explores the role and effect of all types of zines.

There will be also be social activities in the evenings during the PZS, more on those as they develop.

I'm gonna Greyhound it cross-country with a suitcase full of zines, friendship bracelets, and paper cranes! I'll reserve a half table for the 28th as soon as the forms are live. Come find me and trade some zines!
This is totally worth going to if you get the chance!

Oh, if anyone is interested I have a zine about my bicycle trip from Vancouver (Canada) to Portland for the symposium last year. Let's trade!
2010 is the year. i finally do this.
Click Clack Distro will be there!! I absolutely cannot wait. I have never been to Portland and I am so excited to visit. Also, I am pretty scared that i won't want to leave. (Aside to retrieve my husband and dog.)
info on tables, donations, contributing to the program, etc... will be coming soon!
If you need any help promoting it in Seattle, feel free to hit me up. I'll be flyering and postering around town in early June for the NW Pinball and Gameroom Show already and could do it for the Portland Zine Symposium too.
I'm flying back to europe on august 30th.
It was on my plan to take the empire builder to hit the +50 hours train ride but to go and come back by plane is 60€/$100 cheaper so... I guess I'll be there. (I'm looking for a place to put my sleeping bag on August 27th & 28th night)
the toronto zine library + friends will be there! looking forward to it!
Super psyched! My boyfriend & I were planning to do a grand Pacific NW tour this summer anyway, and this is 2 days after my birthday, so I'm totally gonna be there. I won't be tabling, but I'm pumped nevertheless!
bump bump bump!

its almost PZS time!
me too! Last year was the first PDX Zine Symposium I attended, but this year is my first as an organizer and a tabler.
