I would like to announce the birth of the Monthly Manifesto. The Monthly Manifesto will be a free (and monthly!) publication distributed throughout Milwaukee. Currently we are open to submissions for our first issue "Manifesto of a Fool." If you would like to submit material (words and/or pictures, cartoons, ect.) based on this theme send them along to me at notanja@gmail.com for consideration. The deadline for this first foolish issue is March 23rd so that we can release on April's Fools Day. There is no fee for submissions either. That concept is so abhorrent that we could just about write a manifesto about it.  -Editors Anja Notanja and Jessica Poor

The Plant, Chicago is hosting a Winter Zine Fair on the evening of Saturday, February 23rd. We'd like to invite you to showcase your work and for those interested, to also perform a short live reading.

The Winter Zine Fair will be held at The Plant, 1400 W. 46th St. Chicago from 6pm to 11pm. Previous Open Houses and last fall's Monster Food Truck Rally brought 400+ attendees through The Plant!

The Winter Zine Fair will include Zinester Stalls, Lagunitas' mobile beer bar (Coming Soon to Chicago!), live readings, performances by local bands and jazz ensembles and several screenings of Self-Publishers of the World Take Over a documentary by Salford Zine Library's founder and curator, Craig John Barr.

The event is a fundraiser for The Plant, however, we hope to support other uniquely minded communities in the process. We feel that the courage and drive of a self-publisher is similar to that of Chicago's urban farming community.

Please review the attached floor plan to get a feel for the event space and the cost of renting a table for the evening. If you are interested in renting a table for the evening and/or reading at the Winter Zine Fair please contact Craig Barr at salfordzinelibrary@gmail.com .

I'm sending out a traveling zine envelope today. Message me your address in the next two hours if you would like to be on the mailing list. When you get the envelope you can trade out any zines in it. There just has to be a dozen when you mail it to the next person.

Is anyone interested in trading packages of zines?  I have quite a collection now and would be willing to mail 10-15 for trade.  I mostly have perzines, horror, and music.

Cool. If I do a kid friendly one, I'll send it your way. :)

I'm thinking about getting one of those Little Free Library boxes and filling it with zines instead of books!  Would anyone be interested in sending me a copy of their zine to put in it?  it would probably have to NOT be explicit, as kids would have access to it. 

It will probably be a few months before this project comes to fruition as I may have to do a indiegogo fundraiser to afford it!  But thought I'd put the word out.
