a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Opportunity for a free festival pass + some expenses, to help do a fanzine workshop at Beacons Festival, 12-14 August near Skipton, Yorkshire.
Hi - I've just confirmed I'm doing a fanzine-making workshop over 2 days at this festival, and it's a pass for two people. Plus some money for food/travel (but don't get too excited about that - you'll still probably end up slightly out of pocket, or at best even).
I'm circulating it here as well as to my Newcastle-based comic-making friends in case you might be the perfect 2nd person! You need to be friendly and good at engaging people in drawing/typing/contributing papery contributions to a zine that I will then send contributors after the festival. You also need to want to come to this festival and be up for meeting me to help set up etc..
I will be able to find a friend who wants to come, & will help me do my thing, but I thought it would be good to share it with the zine community in case you would actually offer more specifically zine-obsessed creativity!
I'm on oldglen at gmail.com
and am generally pretty easy to get on with if you don't mind the usual zinester proclivities for coffee, DIY politics and shambolic interludes.
