fluff fest looks cool stephanos - for everyone else, it's a czech music festival and they have a fanzine workshop. they say:

One of the pillars of the HC-punk scene has always been and always will be the existence of zines. For this reason, we have decided to set up a library as one of the non-music alternative activities for the duration of the festival. library and reading room with all the printed material coming out of the scene that we can get hold of from their writers.

So we are asking for all the people who do DIY zines and want to support this project to send at least 1 copy (2 is better) of your zine to present and widen the spread of DIY ideas among people at the fest. We are interested in new and old, and even nostalgic editions, in musical and purely political zines, so even the uninformed can find out as much about the HC-punk community and DIY as possible. All the material sent to us will be available for the 3 days of the festival in a specially designated festival library. We hope that through this more people will be able to get to know more about the ideas of the HC-punk movement and this will also be a good chance for zine writers to present their work. Thanks to all of you who support this project. Please contact me on tomas@fluffmusic.com.

For the zine librarians in London/UK:
56a infoshop in London is relaunching its zine library at the end of the month. There is a weekend of events to celebrate this: a gig on Saturday 25th July @ Grosvenor, 17 Sidney Road, Stockwell feat. zine distros & queer bands. Sunday 26th July @ 56a info shop, Crampton Street, Elephant & Castle, there will be discussions & workshops including one on self-published comix, and networking between zinesters & zine librarians. This is from 12pm on, and will follow a breakfast at 56a, and of course, browsing of the zine library!!!

Its a "stuff I like to make" zine, so it has four step by step instructions (eg ATCs). I cant draw (!) so my illustrations are photographs. Anyway, I made a special ATC for the cover, just printed it out and my printer ran out of both black and coloured ink at the same time! Can't get to the store until Sunday to get new ink, so cant tell how it prints

well, what sort of content do you have?
In general I think simple, bold drawings make the best covers/
Comment by lynne mcfarlane on July 6, 2009 at 11:08am

Hi Elizabeth

I don't mind answering questions. I am a guest presenter on a radio show about comics and I focus on Zines and the small press. I do a collective zine myself, but I am happy to point you to guys who have been in the scene for longer and share anything I know. Email is dickonharris@yahoo.co.uk- no mob at the moment I am afraid as it got stolen.

Hi all, I'm hoping someone out there will be able to help. I'm currently writing my MA dissertation on the world of zines, and as I'm studying in Plymouth I'm hoping to bring my search close to home. Is anyone in this group from the west, making zines? I'd love to hear from you, and ask you some questions if you don't mind.
Alternatively, if anyone who doesn't mind being asked a few probing questions (on zines) but doesn't currently reside in the west wants to get in touch that'd be awesome too

Thanks awfully, look forward to hearing from you,

Lizzie
