Zines On Toast, Portland Zine Symposium… Zines! zines! Zines!
So, It’s August and the end of this month brings a bunch of stuff to a close. Here’s some stuff about some things:
24 Hour Zine Challenge:
I made a 24 hour zine about all of the post boxes I have had. There are short stories about who I shared it with or things that happened including Paul’s stalker that worked at the postal outlet! It is Brainscan 25.5 and I’ll have them for trade only at the Portland Zine Symposium and on the Zines on Toast tour. Fellow zine symposium organizer, Derek, reviewed Brainscan 25.5 on his blog Overglued.
On of the contestants did some interviews at the event. You can check it out here and see what we had to say.
The Portland Zine Symposium is August 28-28! There are no full tables left BUT there are some half tables left. So, if you are in Portland you should register your table soon soon soon. I think we are pretty close to having a full workshop schedule but there are few panels that could use some extra folks. I’d like to have a panel on Zine Ethics. If you or anyone you know would like to be on the panel let me know.
