Opportunity for a free festival pass + some expenses, to help do a fanzine workshop at Beacons Festival, 12-14 August near Skipton, Yorkshire.
Hi - I've just confirmed I'm doing a fanzine-making workshop over 2 days at this festival, and it's a pass for two people. Plus some money for food/travel (but don't get too excited about that - you'll still probably end up slightly out of pocket, or at best even).
I'm circulating it here as well as to my Newcastle-based comic-making friends in case you might be the perfect 2nd person! You need to be friendly and good at engaging people in drawing/typing/contributing papery contributions to a zine that I will then send contributors after the festival. You also need to want to come to this festival and be up for meeting me to help set up etc..
I will be able to find a friend who wants to come, & will help me do my thing, but I thought it would be good to share it with the zine community in case you would actually offer more specifically zine-obsessed creativity!
I'm on oldglen at gmail.com
and am generally pretty easy to get on with if you don't mind the usual zinester proclivities for coffee, DIY politics and shambolic interludes.

Hi, Im from Northern England and have run the horror fanzine Necronomicon here for ten years. I will be having a stall at the Bram Stoker International Film Festival in Whitby this year, a weekend of horror films and entertainment.
Issue 18 has just come out and its available on Etsy along with the back issues:
Just wondering if anyone here is going to/is aware of Slutwalk UK? A march against rape culture and victim blaming, which will be taking place in Birmingham in late April or early May.
If you want the details there's a facebook group:
And tumblr group:
I'm running a night at the Macbeth in London on Wednesday night, and am looking for zines and distro's for our zine table! If you'd like to come along (it'll be a nice zine-friendly social event with Djs, cakes and a mixtape exchange) then you don't need to ask, just turn up with your goods and add them to our table! We'll also be launching the third issue of Shebang Zine, so please come and say hi, even if you don't currently have any zines to offer.

Hey UK zinesters!
I'm helping to organise a Zine Fair in Oxford on Saturday 9th April, and thought maybe some of you guys might be interested?
It should be pretty cool - there's gonna be mixtape and zine making workshops, DJs & bands (good ones!), plus..yknow, zines...
The facebook page for it is here, and that has more info: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=189270527779053 - or you can contact me here or email ellisjonesATgmail.com
And yeah, we still have some stalls left, so if you're interested then get in touch!
Sorry to trouble you!
Not Lonely #5
A6 (quarter) sized, 40 pages, pretty text-heavy
The latest issue of my perzine focuses on the history of my relationship with the internet (including my first experiences of using it in a small-town library, its role in facilitating my partner and I getting together & why I no longer use livejournal or facebook); and my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder (including a breakdown of its definition, my own experience of its symptoms and a reflection on its validity - or otherwise - as a diagnosis). There are also handwritten intro and outros, a "guess the lyrics" quiz and some yummy winter soup recipes (suitable for vegans). It's partly typewritten, partly handwritten and was made cut and paste style.
Please visit this post on my blog for information on how to get a copy.
