Got some free time on Friday night? We know you may be checking out the Chicago Zine Fest Youth & Exhibitor Reading at 826 Chicago, but, if you can, think about dropping by to help us put our COLLAGE zine together.
Why not meet at the usual Thursday time, you say? Well, your SPOCsters are still hard at work doing the dirty work of scanning, placing images, lining up text and all that tedious yet strangely satisfying layout work.
We’ll be meeting at Nicki’s from 7-9 p.m. to get everything collated, stapled and ready to go for Chicago Zine Fest the next day. There will be delivered pizza and you’ll have plenty of time to make it over to Zine, Lose or Draw. Carpools anyone?
Speaking of Chicago Zine Fest, we’re looking for interested parties to hang out at our table at the event from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 9. We’ll especially need folks to help selling our goods from around 4-5:30 p.m. while we’ll be participating in the Zine Scene workshop. E-mail selfpublishersofchicago@gmail to get on that.
Didn’t score a table this year? Bummer…..or not….because we’ll happily stock and sell your zine at SPOC table. All zines at the SPOC table will give 25% of their cover price back to zine-ful activities, so keep that in mind when pricing. Contact us and we’ll make arrangements.
