Wow it's been awhile since I last posted, but I've had a lot going on. Moved back to Brooklyn (WOOT WOOT!) and am finally almost settled in. And a bunch of other commotion has passed. Now, onto Pete's Mini Zine Fest! I'm tabling there again with 25 other zinesters. In Williamsburg at Pete's Candy Store (it's a bar, not an actual candy store. Although it probably used to be). Saturday July 25th from 2-7p! Free admission! Booze! (the booze is not free though - it's a bar). 708 Lorimer St in Brooklyn. Take the L or G to Lorimer.
This year, PMZF is part of NYC Zine Weekend, which is part of International Zine Month! Other zine goings on:
Friday July 24, 8pm
Summer Zinester Potluck at ABC No Rio.
Free, but bring food to share and zines to trade. 156 Rivington St., Lower East Side firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday July 26, 2-5pm
Zinester discussion & skillshare at Bluestockings. Free, donation solicited
172 Allen St., Lower East Side NYCzinegroup@gmail.com
This was the aforementioned "other commotion." It's not right that artists keep encountering situations of working their asses off for something that has only a slight chance of happening. Sometimes, as in this case, the company will build you up and make you feel like you pretty much already have the job. It's like a big juicy steak (or tofu burger if you're vegetarian) is being dangled in front of you, and then it's SNATCHED away.
