So I am pleased to report I am back in stock with all issues of both my art/lit zine Ephemera and perzine Plaid Skirts & Converse, finally. Looking for people interested in copies, either by purchase or trade (I know I owe some people trades from forever ago and I'll be getting to all of those shortly). Oh, I'm also looking for submissions of whatever you want to the next issue of Ephemera (ephemerazine @ gmail.com). Sites are here:

Calling all comic artists, writers and zinesters! Do you want to hunker down in ZAPP, our zine archive, for a 24-hour marathon of zine-making, extreme coffee drinking and, perhaps, ghost sightings (you do know Hugo House is haunted, right)?

Free Zine programs @ the Library!

Hello darling zinesters,

This is just a short and sweet little plug for all of the zine programs that SPL is doing this summer, part of the Summer Reading Program! You can find a calendar with all of the events here:
http://www.spl.org/default.asp?pageID=calendar&trumbaEmbed=calendar%3Dcalendar_of_events__classes%26search%3Dzine

We're doing EIGHT Zinery 101 programs and the University branch is having zine drop in hours throughout the summer.

My branch, Capitol Hill, is hosting our Zinery 101 workshop on Monday, June 22nd. That's this coming Monday! That's soon! Lucy Morehouse (Ong Ong Press) is going to provide the entertainment and gummi snacks, as well as clip art, glue sticks, paper, pens and other goodies. It's a good intro to zine making, if you want to bring a friend who hasn't made one before. Of if you're just looking for a space to work for 2 hours, that's cool, too. We'll photocopy everyone's work so everyone will go home with their own little collection.

Registering would be nice of you, since we'll know how much stuff to prepare, but if you can't, don't sweat it. RSVP by calling the library @ 684-4715

WHEN: 5-7pm on Monday, June 22nd
WHERE: Capitol Hill branch @ 425 Harvard Ave East (behind the QFC); parking is available for free in the downstairs garage - neat!

Pilot Books
by Woodiness T. Scatological (mr_sadhead)

A brand-new bookstore specializing in local publications has just opened: Pilot Books.
It's located upstairs in the Alley on Broadway, 219 Broadway E.
It's owned and operated by a nice woman named Summer who is planning to open the tiny space up to art shows and readings, and who is selling locally produced books (and I hope soon she will have a selection of zines and comix available. She seems to be receptive to the idea of carrying local zines.).
Everybody who mourns the loss of independent bookstores in our area (after the passing of Fallout and Confounded) should check this place out.

seattle zine event?
by Mandy (mandypoet)
at March 29th, 2009 (11:09 pm)

Hello, Seattle zinesters. I was at a poetry event the other night--Untitled [Intersection] at the Phinney Neighborhood Center--and was giving away my zines, and people were really into it.  It got me thinking that it would be fun to be able to meet other zinesters.  I mostly just hang out at home making my zine.  Would anybody be interested in doing some kind of zine event, like a collaborative reading and/or opportunity for tabling, etc?  There is info about me and my zines here.  I teach up at Edmonds Community College, and it would be easy to get access to space up here, but I dunno if folks would want to head north.  The Phinney Ctr was a cool venue and even has a big parking lot.  Anyway, just throwing something out there if anyone is reading this!

Know any queer rural zines? x-post (if this doesn't belong/breaks rules, sorry; tell me&I'll delete)

Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but my friend Jenna (a.k.a. trashcan_chica) needs some help:

"does anyone know of any queer zines about living in rural areas or going to rural areas?

any help/pointing in the right direction would be amazing. i went through the whole Queer Zine Archive and couldn't really find anything.

thanks!
jenna b

p.s. i just got a wordpress site, sassyfrasscircus.com!"


Her (AIM) away message also says: "is looking for zines about/by members of radical queer ANTI-URBAN communities, so if you know of any..."

So please comment if you can help at all; thanks. :]
