hey folks another zine launch to pop in your diary :)
YOU/Pony For Now Split Zine Launch VENUE Sticky Institute Shop 10, Campbell Arcade, Degraves St Melbourne, Victoria 3000 DATES: 12 Oct TIME: 6.00pm (60min)
'YOU' is a free weekly, anonymous, paper zine from Melbourne. 'Pony For Now' is a free, monthly, paper zine from Canberra. The two zines have come together as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival this year to produce a special split issue of both their zines. The zine is being launched at the Melbourne zine haven Sticky Institute. Canberra, Australia. It's not all about the politics! Beneath that 1970's facade (and between the roundabouts) lies a cultural underbelly that Nat, zinester of 'Pony For Now - The Canberra Chronicles' has been cut and pasting about, on monthly basis since January 2012.
this saturday (11th august) - someone (i guess me) will be launching my zine - pony for now (the canberra chronicles) issue 7. they'll be zines, music, vegan muffins & a raffle of an awesome canberra pack i've put together (gold coin - proceeds to sticky)... hope to see you there:
canberra zinestArs: nat ('pony for now - the canberra chronicles') & chiara ('rhetorical') are wanting to share the zine love and are inviting you - YES YOU - to the initial monthly/bimonthly canberra zinestAr meetup at Smiths Alternative Bookshop, 76 Alinga Street Canberra ACT 2601. SATURDAY 21st JULY. 12:30PM a monthly/bimonthly coffee catch up to discuss recent zine makes/purchases/ ideas... let's talk fanzines, politics, music, grrlll riot, art, comics, perzines, social theory... zine topics are endless..... an open event to anyone - zinemaker or not - there is more to technology than blogs, logs and microbits..... come along and get crazy with the gluestick!
we've a fb page - so spread the zine love:
Alice! You are definitely in the right place! Zine central in Melbourne is the Sticky Institute, at the Degraves Street subway (you get to it by going down the stairs on Flinders Street, the side opposite the station). They're open Wednesday to Saturday, 12 to 5 in the afternoons.
Polyester Books also has a good zine section. They're on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy. Open just about any time.
There are two main zine fairs in Melbourne, the Sticky zine fair - that's in, I think, February - and Page Parlour, the zine-fairish part of the Emerging Writers' Festival. Sorry, that's just happened. There are plenty of other markets, but if you chat to the good people at Sticky (also on Wemakezines) they should be able to help you, offer suggestions for other zine fairs - blog.stickyinstitute.com.
And for non zine related stuff, Melbourne is a pretty hip and buzzing and happening place when it comes to poetry/literary events. There's plenty of regular open-mic poetry gigs, readings, etc that I like to get to. Check out the site melbournespokenword.com!
Het, does anyone know about any cool zine shops, events and festivals in Melbourne, Victoria? I NEED SOMEWHERE TO GO AND SOMETHING TO DO!
Hey everyone, I've started a group for a travelling zine box. So basically I'm going to start up a parcel/box of zines that we'll send around Australia. When you get the box, you take what zines you'd like and replace them with more zines, then forward it on to the next participant. Check out my group here for more details and to sign up! x
Dear zinesters in Queensland... WAKE UP! Where'd everybody go? I just moved here to study from the States and it looks like the zine scene here died years ago! Hopefully it is just sleeping. This is a wake up call. Blow that dust off that tape dispenser, brush the cobwebs off those scissors, and lets get going, people! What are people working on, any festivals need organizing, any libraries looking for zines? I want to know! Send me a friend request.
I'm making a zine scene in my local area, a fellow zinester and myself have been spreading the love of zines with local young artists and to keep it growing I am starting up a Zine Library, it will live at Transit Lounge Caboolture (which is a non for profit youth arts organisation I work for)
We are just getting our collection started so the more zines we can add to it the better! If you would like to add to our collection please send your zines to
Transit Lounge CaboolturePO Box 159
Caboolture, Australia QLD 4510.
Include your return address and I'll send you one back (one of my own or another local zinester) to say thanks.
I'm launching my new zine with a party at Alaska Projects tomorrow night and you should all come if you are in Sydney. Check out https://www.facebook.com/WorldsOnly for more information!
