a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Sorry if this seems self serving to post about, but I sort of see my project Stolen Sharpie Revolution as a community project and the more info I get from the rad zine community the better it will be!
Stolen Sharpie Revolution is a book I put together as a DIY giude for zines. There have been 3 printings since 2002 and I'm working on the 4th right now. I'm actually calling it Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2 because a lot has changed over the years and I had added a lot of new stuff. The printing has been delayed forever due to a large variety of things... usually money related. But I have the funds together now so here's where I need your help.
In the back of each edition of Stolen Sharpie Revolution I have listings of distros, stores that sell zines, zine libraries, zine events and more. I need you help because I can't really travel all over the world in search of illusive zine events (but that would be awesome!) I need your eyes and ears in the corners of the world to help SSR2 be the best print resource for zines.
I have pretty extensive listings as it is but the more the merrier. I would love it if you would mention shops or distros or whatever in this discussion thread and I'll let you know if they are included. Also, if you have a new distro let me know and I'll let you know the info I need to get it included in SSR2.
Thanks so much for being patient with me!
I think I already told you most of the things I know about through lj - though I don't think I knew about the Manchester Zinefest at the time - www.manchesterzinefest.org.uk, so that's one - but anyway I just wanted to say I definitely don't think you need to be afraid to use the forum to ask for help with SSR, it's a fantastic book and you can ask for as much help as you want wherever you want as far as I'm concerned!
Hey Alex... didn't know if you included me yet... but go for it. I should have everything up and running sometime in November. The Richmond Zine Fest was a big hit for me as far as i can tell.

There are many zine fairs each year but the biggest is held at This is Not Art festival (TiNA) in Newcastle, NSW. First Sunday in October there is a zine fair.
Hello, I cannot wait for this to be out and would love to be involved.
I have a webiste that basically sells zines, prints and other things. The zines are my main thing, would you like to add me so people can access some of my zines?
