Not Lonely #6
This issue of my perzine is largely concerned with a recent trip I made to Holland. I write about getting there (despite a fear of flying), exploring Rotterdam and Amsterdam and going to a fairytale-themed amusement park, the Efteling. I talk about differences between British and Dutch culture and wonder if I'd like to move over there. There is also an (unrelated) item about books I loved as a child, as well as the "usual" handwritten introduction. The zine was made cut-and-paste style with lots of different layouts, collages and photos from my Holland excursion.A6 (quarter-sized), 40 pages, pretty text-heavy.
The Malcontents' Book Club #1
The Malcontents' Book Club is like a book blog, only in zine form. Within it I review (often scathingly) 10 books, including fiction, memoirs and nonfiction. The zine is made cut and paste style with lots of different collages and layouts.
A6 (quarter sized), 40 pages, pretty text-heavy.
They're £1.50 each in the UK, including postage. Get them here!
I'd like to plug my blog Fox & Comet : www.foxandcomet.blogspot.com It's where I write about my zine Toastycats as well as other illustration work and art.
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:
