a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I am writing from a group of ladies who are organizing a Los Angeles Zine Fest in early 2012. We want to have a FREE event with 60-70 vendors from all over the country (and world even!) participate to celebrate zines in a way that Los Angeles hasn't embraced, on a large scale, in quite a while. We have entered a contest that will fund the idea with the most votes with a $2,500 prize and we need your help!
If you'd like to support zine culture and community by helping us create a fest in Los Angeles, here's what you can do:
1) Click here http://goodla.maker.good.i s/projects/lazinefest
2) Enter your email, make up a username and password
3) Click Sign Up to vote
If we win and get this money, we will be using it to: Making a FREE event, secure a venue for the Fest, rent tables and chairs for vendors, make sure we have insurance and security (if needed), screenprint posters and t-shirts, organize zine readings and bands to play either at the fest or around town to celebrate the fest, promote the fest, print our guide to L.A zine for fest go-ers. This is going to be awesome and we'd love the support!
You can visit us at www.lazinefest.com and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, ideas, and inquiries. Thank you for reading!

TEAM FALSE START
Hey Team False Start!
LA Zine Fest was the absolute favorite of a friend of mine who's been a long time Zinester... and I recently bought some of your merch online - a shirt and a tote bag (can't wait!)
Your event is a huge success! I'm starting a EUGENE ZINE FEST, in Eugene OR, USA
And recently started a thread asking about the business model (for legal and financial reasons) that these events take.
Could you share some advice if you had to deal with any of these hurdles?
Here's a link to that discussion:
It is much appreciated!
