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/

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
