Are You Zine Friendly?

Alternative Press are hosting another awesome evening of  Zines, comix, book arts and poetry at our second Zine Friendly event at the foundry, in order to promote our new project, the Zine Friendly Blog! A resource for Self Publishers far and wide, we will be listing venues, promoters, stockists and events that are all “Zine Friendly”!

To celebrate this we are inviting small pressers everywhere to come down and promote their own work. For free! All we are asking is that people donate what they can, even a zine or two, to help Alternative Press to keep promoting the scene.

There will be communal tables with lots of space for self publishers to sell their work. Also, printmakers or those with large work are encouraged to use the walls as a spontaneous temporary free arts space where you can stick up your work DIY style! BYOB (Bring Your Own Blu-tak!) Also, we are inviting some zine distributors to represent as much of what is going on in the scene as we can.

We’ll be having a cake sale with free tea, Knitting circle, CD compilation lucky dip (just bring a cd of your own favourite music and take your pick!), free blank zines for you to use and a poetry workshop followed by some performances and a short open mic…

Things will kick off at 7pm until around 11pm.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

  1. Hurrah! Sounds great.

    (Oh, and I used Dave for printing a comic in the end – I’m holding off on the longer book for the moment – sorry, I’d forgotten to say thanks before, so Thanks Jimi!)
