Hey guys. I'm from the Midlands also!! Check out my discussion on the SCREAM LABORATORY. Get involved! When and where are you guys meeting? Only in Birmingham until next week but will be back soon.

Doing my Masters at the moment in Architecture. Trying to use the method of zines for some of my work. If any of you guys are interested then let me know. Thanks.

It's not like we meet down dark alleys, we'll meet somewhere public.
Perhaps a cafe or something would be better?

Brum sounds good to me. What sort of place are we thinking? I could try to blag the room above the vic if people think that'd be good. Oh wait, Hannah said she's doing her GCSE's, I;m really not sure how these things work with youngsters nowdays. In my day it was okay to be reasonably tall.. are you tall Hannah? ;-)

Hannah- mytip for getting 'round parental issues is to tell them no more than they need to know, that yr off to town..

ummmm, I'm trying to think of non-licenced venues, but my experience of town doesn;t really include many of those places. There's that awful food court above pallasades? Or I suppose there's The Warehouse Cafe?

Lee, any idea?

Birmingham sounds good (as I am there :D)..though I'm not sure I'll have a zine to trade - maybe whip up some copies of my 24 hour zine if anyones interested (and if my parents let me meet up with some internet strangers - wonder how i'm going to get that one past them?)

I'm down for another one. We can all set ourselves deadlines to have new zines to trade completed for it!
Where this time? Birmingham?

Anyone got plans for another meetup, since I managed to miss the last one I wouldn't mind getting in on some zine love action?

Hi guys. Another midlander here (Birmingham) - I don't know how i managed to miss this group for so long. I' still a fedgling zinester - I did a 24 hour zine almost a year ago, loved it, but haven't done anything since - I'm starting to want to get into again (probably at the worst possible time - GCSEs coming up in May/June) but yeah...you'll probably see me around here.

Yes, I had much fun tymez.

I should've arranged to get more zines from you, Steve as I shifted 6 without trying on Saturday evening.

Nice to meet everyone, and thanks for the zines Matthew and Lee :-)
