a place for zinesters - writers and readers
i've just relocated to canberra via melbourne via london, and noticed that the canberra zine fair is kicking off again... details as follows:
Calling stallholders for the annual Canberra Zine Fair, presented by the ACT Writers Centre and the Canberra Contemporary Arts Space from 10am-4pm on Saturday 9 April (during National Youth Week) at Gorman House Arts Centre. Book your table now on 62629191 or at admin(at)actwriters.org.au You must provide your name, contact number, email address, the title of your zine and the amount of space you will need (each tables is two metres in length.
i also understand the lovely vanessa berry will be running a workshop:)
i've been active in all things zine like for 10+ years now, and after a hiatus keen to get back into the swing of things. alas i won't be able to make the zine fair as i'll be in melbourne on the 9th april, however i would be keen to meet up with local zinesters, or get an insight into where one could pick zines, cheap places to photocopy etc...
I'm in Melbourne this weekend, not next. :( Darn. I wish I could make it there or to Canberra.
Sticky in Melbourne has half price photocopying for members:
