Conference Update!

SO! Lots has happened since I created this group...

 

Here is a new plan for a conference: Let's all meet up at the Wayside Center for Popular Education in the Blue Ridge mountains. It is a beautiful location and specifically tailored for radical organizing. We could meet up some weekend in the fall and talk about zines.

A major part of the conference would be getting Lips people together and working on opening chapters at Virginia Tech and Mary Washington. But, depending on who is interested we could also have other broader workshops.

Hello, fellow southern zine peoples! The 7th Annual Richmond Zine Fest is approaching. October 5th, to be exact. If any of y'all are willing and able to participate and/or attend, please do! More information is at and will continue to be added to our website: http://richmondzinefest.org. We'd love to bring your zines to Richmond, VA, if they aren't already and even if they are. And we simply love meeting other zine-makers and readers.

Sidenote: Activists and zine-makers in Richmond, VA, have so much love for the Wayside Center for Popular Education! <3333

I just finished putting together a zine that was two years(!) in the making:

Nashville Transit is about riding public transit during the early months of my transition. I basically journal-ed my experiences with street harassment and then typed them out, with very little edits/commentary. I also talk about the importance of public space and who has power in public spaces. 1/2 size zine with cardstock cover, cut and paste style, mostly text. Please get at me if you'd like to trade or wholesale: nervous.nelly.records@gmail.com or http://nervousnelly.storenvy.com/products/638932-nashville-transit-...
