a place for zinesters - writers and readers
For all attending the Portland Zine Symposium this weekend: Please post your "haul" lists!
What zines did you get? (And maybe how can we get copies as well?)
I'm always interested in reading what people pick up at zine and comic conferences. It seems like two lists are never the same.
I'll be there with my zine, Miranda. I'm excited because I got a new issue done just in time for this. And also to see how things are different in the new venue, if more people show up. And I'm always interested to see who ends up tabling next to me.
and maybe get an impulse tattoo.
I'll be at the symposium! I'm an organizer and this is a busy week!I have (technically) our last meeting tonight and then a contingent of 4 UK kids get in tonight. Tomorrow we have the first reading for the Zines On Toast tour. Friday we have an open house and open mic zine reading at the Independent Publishing Resource Center.
Saturday is the first day of the symposium. The workshops are now posted here. Saturday night we have Zinester Feud! It's like Family Feud (or Family Fortunes in the UK) If you have a minute I would love it if you could fill out the survey we have here asking questions about ziney things. That way, even if you can't make it to the symposium, you'll have a hand in making it great.
Sunday is the second day of tables and workshops. After that...my band plays with other zine and comic bands: The Tagalongs and Fun Yeti .Steve larder from Rum Lad zine has been hanging out at my house until the Zines On Toast tour and we decided to start a zine band! We have three songs recorded and ready and a 4th and possibly a 5th to play at the show. The set is like a zine with an intro song full of excused for why the band/zine is late, a likes/dislikes song, a song about stealing copies and an outro song! I'm excited and nervous. This band is the musical equivalent to 24 hour zine!
