Look at this excellent event coming up in May at the Women's Library:

Saturday 12th May 2007

12-4pm, Free

The Women's Library, 25 Old Castle Street, London

Zines are hand-made magazines which are made for love not money. Requiring few resources to self-publish- just a pen, a piece of paper, and a photocopier- zines are made on any number of topics,and showcase culturally innovative writing and art.

To promote the Women's Library Zine Collection (which collects women's zines and comics from the 1970s to the present day) we're organising a one-day zine fest on Saturday 12th May 2007. Focusing on the rise of the "girl-zine movement", this day aims to showcase women's talent in feminist and radical print cultures and to introduce lots more people to the wonderful, addictive world of zines!

Zine Fest! is free, but as places are limited please email moreinfo@thewomenslibrary.ac.uk or call 020 7320 2222 if you would like to attend the zine making workshop. All ages welcome!

Programme so far includes: zine-making workshop, talk by zine academic Teal Triggs,zine reading lounge, distro and craft stalls, Grrly Show film screening, zine history art exhibition, and tours of the library's reading room and zine collection.

I am so there. Possibly in some kind of riot project capacity - watch this space!
