a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Gah, Ciara, you make it sound pretty cool...don't tease us, I'll eat my hat if I ever do anything like this...I only have, like, four penpals and none of them would let me stay with them (nor would you want me to, seriously, I mutter like a serial killer in my sleep).
Also, how incredible would it be to pack a tiny bag and be like: "right then, let's go!", I'm so used to having boxes of stuff, I could do with going somewhere with limited "stuff"
This is similar to how I'd adore to do one of those things where you go stay somewhere for two weeks and make zines every day, "zine residencies", is it? I tried looking online for those but came up with nada.
These threads really start to get confusing when people start deleting their profiles.
Harley, it is very bizarre the way we keep reading each other's minds these days. I'm actually in the beginning stages of planning a zine tour. I've been saving up my money to make it to the Portland Zine Symposium next summer, and then I figured if I'm gonna go that far, I may as well do a whole damn tour. I've got a few connections in western Canada, and four or five zinesters on board (well, we'll see if they're still all about it in the springtime) and I think it could be a pretty amazing time. I've toured with bands before, so I'm pretty adept at sleeping in vans and wearing the same clothes everyday. Nothing to it. If you're serious, we should get to talking.
Ever since I participated in the zine reading at TZL, I've been wanting to do readings like, every weekend.
