I know that I haven't posted here in eons, but I just wanted to let you all know about this super-cool zine event that will be taking place in March.
The Boston Zine Fair is a weekend-long event with the aim of bringing together zinesters, artists, small presses and other producers of independent media. The conference includes two full days of tabling, an opening night show with live bands and readers, as well as potluck meals throughout the weekend. There are also numerous hands-on workshops and discussion panels which give us the opportunity to learn new skills to use in our own creative enterprises, as well as to explore the importance of independent media in a corporate-owned world. The Boston Zine Fair is free and open to the public. In previous years the Boston Zine Fair (formerly known as Beantown Zinetown) has drawn hundreds of both local and national publishers, and has been a great way to build community and just enjoy each other's company.
The Zine Fair will be held at MassArt on March 24-25, and you can find more information about the event here. I'll probably be there for at least part of the day on Saturday, so hopefully I'll see some of you there.
