Hi! I'm Hannah and I've just moved to Southern Wisconsin from Kansas, and I really want to meet some like-minded people here! I enjoy thinking, quilting, animals, loud music and owning my teeny-tiny vintage eyewear business. You can visit my Etsy shop @ www.thayerpicks.etsy.com - Look at some glasses!!

 

I have not written a zine in several years but am writing one about transitioning to living in Wisconsin and how much it rules, and all the casseroles and cookies I've been making. So much cheese and summer sausage, I love this place!!

 

Have a good day!!

So I've been in Michigan for a few days for a visit.  If you live in Detroit I put a free copy of my zine Mirrored Mitten in the reading section of Astro Coffee.  Check it out!

Hi folks!

 

I'm excited that I'll soon be counted as a Midwestern resident of the US of A coming from that roughneck, urban hellhole known as NYC! (I can say that 'cause I'm actually a real New Yorker! :) )

 

Anywho, I'm happily relocating to the Madison, WI and happily discovered this neat  MeetUp Group for Madison zinesters that I wanted to share:

http://www.meetup.com/Mad-Zines/

 

And the creator of this group is also helping to organize the Madison Zine Fest on Oct. 22, 2011! Time/Location TBD.

 

For the zine fest, she is seeking an answer to the following question:

"Does anyone know any movies, documentaries, or shorts related to zines, comics, or diy type book art in general that we could suggest to have played at Union South theater during zinefest? They are looking for suggestions."

 

If you know an answer, just post it here!

 

Ciao,

SS

Hi Folks, I'll be teaching a course on zines at Western Illinois University this spring. I'm looking for zinesters who are interested in possibly coming to talk to my class, participate in a zine reading at WIU, and/or have students in the course read your zines and contact you. If you're up for it, you can send me a message here or email me at rebekahb (at) temple.edu. Feel free to pass this info on to other folks who may be interested. (I'll also post it to the Chicago zinesters site.) Thanks!!
