When is the Best Li'l Zine Fair? Do they have a web page with info?

Last year there was a zine fair in London at the Forest City Gallery...think it was in Oct or Nov.
Usually the London Public Library puts an indy type fair on in the spring where zines are invited.

Is there a place that lists all the zine fairs in Canada? Is there one in London, ON?

I'm getting back into zines, and does it ever feel good!

After a 2 year hiatus, I'm re-reading a bunch of zines and writing a new one about my love/hate relationship with the city of Ottawa, where I currently reside. But seeing as how much things change, zinesters and zines come and go and styles fall in and out of fashion, I was wondering if someone (or some people) could throw a fledgling, poor student a bone?

Would anyone be willing to swap their zine, for one of mine once it's done? I know it's kind of uncouth, but if you can take the word of a (somewhat) faceless internet Samaritan, it'll be worth the wait. I promise! You'll get gems composed like this about breaking onto the roofs of luxury hotels, almost getting arrested by Mounties for taking a photos and snow. Lots and lots of snow. Or I could make you a mix CD of sweet Canadian music. Yeah? Yeah!

All that to say, I'd like to read your zine.
If I've sold you, gimme a shout and we can trade addresses and all that.

Love,
-Christine Louise

For Lack of Better Words is my first quarter-size zine and it's a compilation of love letters, from me and for me. Making it was a project in appreciation and reflection and now I'm sharing it with you! There's not much more I can say about this one because I prefer to let the letters speak for themselves. There are some pictures in my album if you'd like to have a peak inside.
It's 40 pages, $2+shipping or trade.
