I’m hosting the Sept meeting of the CHIPRC Zine Zine Club! We’ll be talking about Deafula #7 & Motor City Kitty #23 (which means conversations about things like accessibility + community + support + friendship, hell yeah). Bring some rad zines you’ve read lately to talk up, too!
Sunday, April 28th, 2013, 1:00pm - 3:00pm at ChiPRC
Now that CZF 2013 has come and gone, we want to hear your opinions on how the fest went, what we did well, and what we can do better for next year! Come share your thoughts about Chicago Zine Fest 2013 with members of your zine community, and also learn more about how you can get involved with CZF 2014! Find the facebook event here.
The open meeting will take place at the Chicago Publishers Resource Center (ChiPRC), an up-and-coming space that “strives to build community and foster creativity by providing access to the space, education, and resources necessary to create and self-publish literary and visual work.” Visit chiprc.org for more information, and to sign up for their mailing list!
—Out of Towners— Just because you can’t attend the meeting in person doesn’t mean we don’t want to hear your thoughts! If you have a few minutes (and if you haven’t already done so), please fill out our post-fest survey and have your voice heard! Post-Fest Survey: http://bit.ly/XpZNFM
