a place for zinesters - writers and readers
A zine festival would be cool, but I think maybe best to start a little smaller, in view of the fact even the Perth artists and writers I know barely know what a zine is, and are more likely to pronounce it as though it rhymes with pine. Maybe we should hook into something with a built-in audience, because I'm not sure a stand-alone zine festival would attract anyone, except family and friends. For example, we could see about setting up a consolidated Perth zine table at the next Made on the Left artist markets?
Damn this stupid website doesn't notify you when someone replies to a discussion thread.
Anyway, I am up for Made on the Left, Sunday markets, music & zines, whatever. I thought, when you said it could be like Laneway, I thought you meant we would have that size audience and stall holders to fill the whole cultural centre, just for zines! that's why I suggested starting small. Now I see that wasn't quite what you meant anyway!
We probably should get together to discuss.
I agree we should plan well in advance, if only because it takes me ages to make zines, even back issues.When is the next Made on the Left?
Think I will see about selling Fergus at Cottonmouth on Thursday, I've always been too shy to enquire, but since they're going on extended leave, this is the last opportunity for a while.
