"THIS IS FRANKSTON" A Community Zine Project
It's time we started thinking about collaborative zine projects!
At the January social catch up we discussed a few possible topical points about frankston city, and I think we should put these, and any others you can think of, together in the form of a community zine project.
The end result is intended to be a documented, real depiction of how frankston  is seen and lived in and what it means to by those that live/work/visit here. This zine will contain words and images drawn from our time spent in frankston: our experiences; honest and raw memories; celebrated and mourned positive and negative and perfectly ugly and conflictingly beautiful all at once - all of it!
Submission forms are available from local hangouts & the submission box is in the frankston libraries foyer. 1ST ROUND SUBMISSIONS DUE 31st MARCH.

THANK YOU to everyone that came along to the launch of THIS IS FRANKSTON yesterday! Special thanks to zinester comrade harps for reading for us from the zine. 

I'm really happy with the way it was received and hope that 'Is THIS Frankston?' will continue to show a diverse, current perspective and creative insight to Frankston life.

Don't forget to check out our tumblr:www.thisisfrankston.tumblr.com 
& remember to send your submissions for the page to: this.is.frankston@gmail.com 

PS. for those of you who didn't make it to the launch yesterday, there were a few copies of THIS IS FRANKSTON zine left in the Cube 37 & Frankston Library foyers.

You can check out the photo album of this community project, including pics taken of the launch here:

Not quite, but I'm somewhat close by and occasionally visit when I'm not busy with work and school. That said, I would be more than happy to help. If that's okay, of course.
