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.“

ZINE COURSE PART 2
ZINE COURSE PART 3
if you can’t make this first session, you can still join us for parts 2 & 3 without attending part 1, however please keep in mind part 2 focuses on editing & layout and part 3 on printing itself so maybe start thinking of / making your contents in the meantime. need help, let us know x
hi everyone! it’s been a while. we’ve been here for the last four months, just not been up to anything new and being bad at self promoting existing things (what else is new?)
on halloween it was the distro’s 8th birthday! but we didn’t do anything to celebrate, oops. is it too late to do like a birthday sale? if it is, i don’t care cos here’s one = you can have 8% off your order with the code OOPSL8BIRTHDAY until the end of november.
and in other news i finally got around to updating the website and sorting out this small pile zines i had sitting around waiting to be added on the website for an unspecified amount of time (lets not talk about how long that is…)

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.
