Hello and happy Friday zine friends!
We’re already on day three of International Zine Month, and I have a sneaking suspicion that it will keep carrying along at this rapid pace! But you’re never too late to jump in and join the fun. You can pop over here for the 2020 IZM list of daily activities by Alex Wrekk. (Pssst! Go here to download your own printable IZM 2020 poster!)
Also be sure to leave a comment and let me know if you’re joining in. I’ll keep a growing list on each post so we can all check out what each other are doing.
Onto day three!
The zine community is well and truly a versatile one! While it has definitely been sad and difficult to see so many in-person zine events need to be cancelled for the safety of everyone, a lot of people have picked things up and run with them in a new direction. The virtual direction!
Already this year there have been a number of virtual events and shows of the zine awesomeness variety as well as a few ‘zoom type’ group chat events for hanging out and getting creative. They’re popping up all over the place, but I’ve seen most on Facebook. I don’t know of any off the top of my head right now, but you can check out the resources page for a few places around the internet that may be holding virtual events or have connections to virtual events.
Of course, if you are holding a virtual zine event or know of one happening – please let me know! I’d love to help spread the word.
That’s me for today. Until next time, spread a little sunshine.
