zinefest excitement 

this is making me giddy with excitement and photocopying fumes:

Manchester Zinefest is a celebration of DIY art and publishing and suchlike. It's on Saturday February 11th at The Basement, 24 Lever Street Manchester, entry is free and
it’s going to be splendid!

All day there will be workshops, panel discussions, zine library, art exhibits, lots of distros, creative actions and plenty of wonderful zines to buy/trade/read etc, in the evening there's films and readings and open mic performance.

please come along and have fun, be inspired, maybe get involved. If you want
to bring zines to sell or trade or add to the library that'd be ace. If you have stuff but can't come on the day then the bookshop collective can sort it out for
you. The art exhibition is open from today and anyone is welcome to contribute by adding to it – just bring a page from your favourite zine and maybe a few words
about why it’s special

For more information and a programme see our website

Shameless self promotion bit: I’ll be running a workshop* on psychogeography and DIY mapmaking with Alex (boredinthecity) I’ll also have some goodies to offer, including (cue fanfare) twang, which is finally putting the first syllable into country two years after the launch party (my, we’re so postmodern) There’s a bunch of other stuff I’ve made too and I’m really quite proud of it – the haberdashery catalogue will be available on this somewhat neglected blog soonish so please take a look if you get the chance.

Glittery love and felt tips
