Leeds University Union
13th November 2010


Roll up zinesters!

Footprint Workers Coop, radical printing collective based in Leeds, are co-hosting a zine fair in celebration of 10 years of printing zines and all things radical, ranty and DIY.

The zine fair will feature stalls from a zillion zinesters, community action groups, radical campaigns and collectives, art exhibitions and workshops on zine-making, eco printing, workers cooperatives, cabaret performances, veggie/vegan food, and more!

The after party at the CommonPlace will be 10th birthday party themed with jelly, streamers, balloons and fabulous frolicksome bands, dancing, slam poetry and maybe even pass the parcel!

The zine fair is being organised as a collaboration between Footprint Workers Coop, Green Action - Leeds Uni eco-activist group, and others in the Leeds DIY/activist community if you'd like to get involved get in touch!

Looking for decription writers for marching stars distro! (www.marchingstars.co.uk)

I send you 4 or 5 zines for free (you get to keep them). You send me a description of the zines so I can use them on the distro website. Sound like a good deal? Email me at distro@marchingstars.co.uk

Issue 2 of "If Things Don't Alter They'll Stay As They Are" is ready now. It's better than the first I reckon, more to read. I write about men thinking it's ok to grope women on a night out, my expereiences of counselling, having children or not.

It's half size, 20 pages, B&W.

£1 with SAE or better still trade for zines or other lovely things.

Not Lonely #3 is now available!

Issue 3 is about the fine line between fact and fiction, not throwing things away, being pestered by dodgy men on public transport, (somewhat comically) failing at interviews, insomnia, the reality check of life after university and alternative menstrual products. It's part-handwritten, part-typed and made in a cut-and-paste style with lots of pretty backgrounds and vintage images.

I love trades! Or the price is £1 UK / £1.50 Europe / £2 Elsewhere. Please contact me via my page on here or email not_lonely_zineATyahoo.co.uk if you'd like a copy.

The 2010 Eurovision Song Contest Finals Are On Tonight
Are you excited? I bet you aren't!

I have made a zine about the event, telling you who I think is terrible (most of them), and who is okay. If you give me an email (tomorrowboy, gmail) I'll send you a PDF of it, but here's a link to some jpgs you can at least look at. Maybe you can print them off and make your own copy? (It's formatted for A4 size.)

(And yes, I wrote most of this drunk.)

The day after the london zine symposium, I intend to get the bus from newcastle to the beach and sand dune system that runs in an almost continuous line up to scotland. i will camp on the beach, doodle and drink coffee away from the city (unless it rains). This will become my next zine (probably a mini zine), and i would like you to be a part of it by giving me a post address (uk only) that i can send a postcard to.

I will just take a photo of some element of your postcard and include that in the zine so your effort is minimal to say the least!

It might be a doodle of a puffin, or a moan about feeling lonely, but it will be from the dunes, and the sand, and the early morning birdprints and seals in the water.

You HAVE to tell me by sunday 6pm or i will actually be living on the beach and unable to see your address! email = oldglen at gmail.com
(Say hi if you're at the zine symposium too!)

Hello

I've been away from Zines for a very long time and have just come back to it. I'm just printed (photocopied) the first issue of my new zine called "If Things Don't Alter They'll Stay As They Are'. In issue one is a 20 page half size zine, in it I ramble about my father (who has aspergers), family, drinking, sharing a bed with your partner and turning 30.

£1.00 with a S.A.E am happy to trade for zines or other stuff :)

I have finished the new issue of Not Lonely!

A6 (1/4 size), 28 pages.

Issue 2 is mostly about saying no to things most people say yes to. There are articles on the drinking scene and why I don't go to pubs/clubs and the personal and political reasons why my partner and I decided not to get married; as well a discussion of the ways I manage my mental health without medication and a nerdy article on my method of "getting into" new albums.

Please see my profile for details of how to get a copy.
