Hi there! I'm organizing a Zine Fest at Sarah Lawrence College (in Yonkers, NY) and looking for stallholders and people to participate in the event! You can find the event posting here: http://wemakezines.ning.com/events/sarah-lawrence-college-zine-fest. I'm new at this (this is my first event) but I'm hoping I can make this fest really awesome!

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS

Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters?

Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre.

Specifically, we ask for:
1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino)

2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format)

3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format

4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words)

5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far)
a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1
b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2
c. S/trip-hop
d. Dream(pop)
e. Queer Punk
f. SANDIGmaan

6. A theme for 1 print year
Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year
a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving)
b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds)
c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach)
d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape)

THE FINE PRINT
1. Send all submissions to papermonsterpress@yahoo.com with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION
2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012.
3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;)
VIVA SMALL PRESS!

Hi, I'm trying to organise a workshop in Manchester (UK) in the new year and wondered if anyone had any advice or if anyone wants to get involved or send their zines to display? Ella

The Last Bookstore, 453 S. Spring St., Downtown Los Angeles

Hey fellow zinesters! Los Angeles is full of creative and crafty types of all disciplines, and we feel it's about time to show off our zines, comics and self-published awesomness. Join us February 19th from 11 AM - 5 PM on the second floor of The Last Bookstore at 453 S. Spring St., in downtown Los Angeles for L.A. Zine Fest 2012!!!

Not only will there be tons of amazing zines to check out and purchase, but DIY workshops, guest panels, and local bands will round out the fest on the first floor of the store. Best of all, it's FREE to attend, and super cheap to be a vendor!

Not local to Southern California? It's the perfect excuse to finally visit L.A.! There will be events throughout the city on Friday and Saturday of the same weekend.

Find out more about becoming a vendor here!:http://lazinefest.wordpress.com/how-to-apply/

Like us on facebook too!: https://www.facebook.com/pages/LA-Zine-Fest/126092794135808?sk=wall

There will be a number of pre-Zine Fest workshops, events and fundraisers happening all over Los Angeles, so keep checking the Facebook page, Twitter and blog!

Got an idea for an awesome zine-related event? Wanna be a sponsor or donate something to a fundraiser raffle? Just feel like learning more or helping out? Please contact us at LAZINEFEST@GMAIL.COM -- we'd love to hear from you!

Comment by Salford Zine Library on August 14, 2011 at 2:45am

Hi,

as you may or not know the library has an exhibition at Salford Art Gallery running from 15th October 2011 to 29th January 2012.


I am looking to show a film at the exhibition made up of short videos that contributers to the library have made of themselves. The video will explain why you personally self publish and about the zines you produce. To submit please email me your short talking head videos no longer than five minutes. I will compile and edit these together and add captions for the finished film. All are welcome to contribute to this project and I would like an eclectic range of zine makers to participate covering all the genres etc. 


So wherever you are making your zines it would be great to hear from you.
To submit Zines the address is 

48 LANDOS COURT

MANCHESTER

M40 7WT

UNITED KINGDOM


Kind regards


Craig
