(14 Robertson Road Bristol BS5 6JY, http://www.kebelecoop.org/)

A day of zines, workshops, tea and vegan cakes.

Hooray! Followed by yummy
Kebele dinner at 6.30pm.

We'd love for you to take part! If you're interested in having a table at
the fest, please send us an email to
bristolradicalzinefest@gmail.comanswering the following questions:
- Who are you and what do you do?
- Where are you based?
- What kind of zines would you have at your table?
- What's your price range? Would you be up for swaps?
- If you have a web page, please share it with us.

Deadlline for applications: 8th of January 2012.

Unfortunately because of limited space we won't be able to fit all the
stalls in, these questions will help us make a selection. Spaces will be
1/2 table each and we'll be asking a donation of £1 to £5 from stall
holders on the day. We're aiming for the Bristol Radical Zine Fest to be a
celebration of grassroots D.I.Y. culture!

if you'd like us to send you posters/flyers to distribute.
Love & rage,

London Zine Symposium

Happened the other week. The Radical Walking Group was cool and it was nice to see the people.

We did a stall with Pearl (Peach Melba) and got some new zines to distro including Adventures in Menstruating and Scratch That Itch.

Victoria Baths Fanzine Convention May 14 — stalls, speakers, film screening, tours, food, workshops

We aren't going to this either! But cool that Manchester has a zine event again.. Maybe next year..

The first ever fanzine convention to be held in the beautiful setting of Victoria Baths will explore the past, present and future of self-publishing through stalls featuring self-published books and zines to browse, talks, a film showing and workshops.

Manchester's opulent Edwardian water palace, which opened to the public in 1906 and closed in 1993, will be packed with events as part of the Future Everything festival.

To have a stall on the day, either as an individual zine or group of friends, costs £10. Apply by emailing Natalie.Rose.Bradbury AT googlemail.com.

All events in the building are free to enter, although donations are welcomed. Read more about the building at http://www.victoriabaths.org.uk/.

We got invited to a zinefair in San Jose

But we aren't going, coz my bike has a puncture and we aren't sure if they sell cider there. Here's the callout anyways...

CALL FOR ZINES: This is a call to all zine makers to have their zine shown in our 2011 ART OF ZINES exhibition at Anno Domini gallery. For over a decade A.D. has supported and promoted urban contemporary arts, performance & music and we believe zines have an important place in our efforts. Zines are one of the last frontiers for freedom of speech and creative self expression and we need it now more than ever.

We are especially interested in art, music, poetry, photography and other creative disciplines but are open to all zines in any format and content. Current and past issues are accepted, one copy of each is adequate. (If you choose, you may send zine multiples and/or promo cards and we'll put it out on the free counter for the taking.)

To make the exhibit a little sweeter, this year's zine show will be coordinated with the SubZERO Festival in our district which draws 10,000 - 12,000 people that enjoy the subculture artists, performers and musicians in our region. The festival takes place out front of our gallery doors in a three block area called the SoFA District. It's also the First Friday art walk with 20 venues participating. The exhibit indoors at A.D. will run for approximately 4 weeks.

Please note we do not return zines, nor will we sell them (they are just for exhibit and enjoyment purposes), but we do induct them into our zine library so they may live on.

We'd like to have all the zines for the A.D. exhibit in hand by May 21, 2011. Please email me to let me know you'll be sending us your zine, and feel free to contact us should you have additional questions. You are welcome to extend this call to other friends or forums you think will be a good fit.

The exhibition opening reception is on First Friday June 3rd, 7-11pm.

CALL FOR ZINE MAKERS: zine makers in the area are invited to be present to table / sell their zines within the SubZERO Festival (Friday, June 3rd, 6pm-midnight). Vendor fees for SubZERO is $125.00 but for zine makers that want to be a part of the communal zine dedicated area, it will only be $35 a spot, no other commission imposed. (A "spot" will be 1 standard table length.) You'll have to bring your own table/chair, we'll provide the space and lights for the evening. Please RESERVE your spot by May1st by replying to this email if you'd like to table.

peace, and thank you!
