NEW ZINES & AN UPDATE?

we have some new zines in stock and some old faves back in stock. we had a sweet care package from maranda containing copies of issues 36 – 42 of telegram, and we also took delivery of the latest issue five of sonorus, everyone’s favourite feminist harry potter fanzine!

also, the zine workshop that was supposed to happen yesterday at intra was sadly cancelled last minute due to the weather (lousy smarch weather) and it has been rescheduled to Saturday 31st March. (facebook event page)

updating this at the moment is a huge pain in the butt as our computer decided to die on Thursday (just in time for drag race all stars finale. i still haven’t seen it and i’m not sure when i will at this rate, the struggle is incredibly real) and typing on my phone is not great and wordpress isn’t the easiest thing to navigate on a small screen. still can dispatch orders just fine, don’t you worry. hopefully we’ll get a new soon and things can get back to normal, whatever that is.

ZINE COURSE PART 1 @ INTRA, ROCHESTER – SUNDAY 10th DECEMBER

hey i know this is a bit last minute notice but i’m helping run a zine course / workshop at INTRA tomorrow (sunday 10th december) with Confluence Medway (fb page) it’s the first of 3 sessions and they are free, but spaces are limited so please contact Confluence if you’d like to attend.


Sunday 20th December at 11:00–14:00
INTRA, 337 – 341 High Street, ME1 1DA Rochester, Medway

This is the first of 3 workshops which will guide you in making your own pamphlet or zine. This workshop will be introducing you to what a zine is, and starting to get contents together for your own zine/pamphlet. We will do creative writing exercises and create a group zine as an example. Further workshops will deal with laying out a zine and printing it. (Next workshops on Sat 27 Jan and Sun 18 Feb). Once you have attended these workshops you will be able to use the printing facilities in our monthly drop-in open afternoon sessions.
Places are free but space is limited, so message us if you want to attend.

SICK! ZINE WORKSHOP 9th JULY @ INTRA, ROCHESTER

this sunday (july 9th) we’re going to be lending a helping hand at the SICK! Zine Workshop at INTRA in rochester, kent.

SICK! LIVING WITH INVISIBLE ILLNESS – ZINE WORKSHOP

SUNDAY JULY 9th 2017
MORNING SESSION 10am – 1pm
AFTERNOON SESSION 2pm – 5pm
@ INTRA, 337-341 High Street, Rochester, ME1 1DA

REGISTER FOR FREE HERE

A workshop for those affected by invisible illnesses – guiding you to express yourself through words, images or collage to create a collaborative zine on this theme. Led by artist and printmaker Xtina Lamb, your contributions will be compiled into a small DIY publication – a ‘zine’, to be printed on INTRA’s Risograph machine. The zine will be available free to visitors of the Sick! exhibition at Sun Pier House in Chatham, Kent in August.

We’ll supply collage materials, typewriters (old school!), drawing supplies, glue, and will have lots of ideas to get you thinking about the ways you could contribute to the zine. Bring along any extra materials you’d particularly like to use to create the pages, or if you have sketchbooks or notebooks of writing – those would be great for the workshop too. But you don’t need to be a fantastic artist or an accomplished poet to take part, if you have experiences of invisible illness (either from your own ill health or those close to you), we would love to include your contributions.

Please choose the morning or afternoon session.
