We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

City Library Street Press workshop with Geoff Lemon 8th April

From the Man himself....

"As a writer myself, I can tell them about writing techniques and tricks, or I can focus on how to manage yourself professionally as a writer - that is, how to get you work out there, how to approach publishers and publication opportunities, and so on. I've published poetry, short stories, and articles, so I've encountered a range of different types of publication. And I brought my first book out last year, so that could also be a useful discussion.

I can also tell them about publishing from the other side of the fence, given that I have several years of experience working as a magazine editor and particularly as a poetry editor. This could cover both the mechanics of how to approach editing someone else's work, and the broader stuff of how to manage a publication financially and administratively - so, distribution, advertising, marketing, sales, grants, etc.

Then as a performer I've done a lot of work, including some pretty big venues supporting bands and so on, and I've won various competitions. So I could give advice on how to write for performance, on how to approach performance, and how to prepare for competition. And I've worked for a couple of years as a gig convenor, so again, I could talk about the administrative, promotional, and organisational aspects of running performances."
