Stolen Sharpie Revolution: A DIY resource for zines and zine culture needs your help...

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 can't remember if I got an email about this and even if I responded... So I'll just give you some info now

It runs 12-5pm on the 1st Sunday of October each year. It's the biggest event on the zine calendar - tables are free for zinemakers. It's in Newcastle, NSW Australia. The NYWF is part of TiNA - This is Not Art, which runs at the end of September through to Monday, the day after the zine fair. TiNA has been going for 10 years

Hey Alex,

When I sent you some canadian zine stuff a while ago I included Wooden Apples in Montreal, but they just closed this week. Sad.

When is this thing set to print? I can't wait to read it!!!!
Well, now that I have they money to print it I don't have the time to work on it! I was busy with work like whoa during the holidays but now that things are starting to settle down I have been trying to set aside an hour or two a day to work on it.

Right now I have a 1,500 piece button order to get to.
