24 hour zine challenge -- kick off event this WEDNESDAY at the toronto zine library! [Jul. 26th, 2010|03:22 pm]
twelveohtwo zine distro
Happy (belated) International Zine Month everyone!

To celebrate, the Toronto Zine Library is participating in the 24 hour zine challenge and we would love for you to join us! We are hosting a kick off event this Wednesday, July 28th starting at 5pm and going strong until the Tranzac Club closes.

What is the 24 hour zine challenge, you ask?
A yearly event where one attempts to make a 24 page zine from start to finish in 24 hours. From initial idea right through to photocopying/collating/stapling your zine. More information, list of this year's participants and sign up can be found here: http://24hourzines.com/

(Please note that you dont *have* to register and/or send your zine in when its finished. We encourage you participate to whatever degree you are most comfortable with. Or, you are welcome to just come and hang out at the TZL and cheer participants on!)

Bring your ideas and if youre able a snack to share while we hang out, listen to music, and get a start on our 24 hour zines! Some supplies will be available (paper, glue, scissors, magazine clippings, a couple of typewriters, a long arm stapler) but please do bring your favourite or necessary zine making supplies. Conveniently, there is a 24 hour Kinkos a half-block away!

Also, similar to the event folks at the Independent Pubishing Resource Center (http://www.iprc.org/) in Portland Oregon held a few days ago, we will be streaming our 24 hour zine challenge event live! If you're unable to join us, bookmark http://www.ustream.tv/channel/toronto-zine-library-24hr-zine-challenege and tune in on Wednesday starting at 5pm EST and participate alongside us from wherever you may be.

Ok, to recap:

WHEN: wednesday july 28th, 5pm until close
WHERE: the toronto zine library -- 2nd floor of the tranzac club -- 292 brunswick st. just south of bloor. close to spadina subway station
COST: free!
WHAT: 24 hour zine challenge kick off
BRING: yourself, your friends, snacks, creativity, zine making supplies, ideas

Holler at us if you have any additional questions or concerns. We regret that the TZL is not a wheelchair accessible space.

[music |cbc radio one]

eep! totally forgot to post about this here. my apologies!

today is ZINE DREAM at the TRANZAC CLUB (272 Brunswick Ave, west of spadina and just south of bloor). it runs from noon-6pm. we'll be tabling with the distro. come by and say hi!

and make sure you go upstairs to the 2nd floor where the toronto zine library will be hosting an open house that includes a drop-in collaborative zine making workshop. its free!


ps: canzine is november 1st. we booked our table yesterday. i strongly encourage out of town perzine writers to register a table. the increasing lack of actual zines at canzine is kind of a bummer. so please come and represent! i can help with places to stay. get in touch if you have questions/need a place to crash/want to know more about canzine, transportation to toronto options, etc. http://www.brokenpencil.com/canzine

denver zine library closing -- hopefully only temporarily! [Jul. 2nd, 2009|01:50 pm]
twelveohtwo zine distro
reposting this from WMZ:

"It is with mixed emotions that we are announcing the temporary closure of the Denver Zine Library (DZL) which has been housed at The Other Side Arts on Platte St. for the past few years. There are several factors contributing to this temporary closure that we’d like to share with you. We have often found ourselves struggling to meet the demands of rent expenses, making us recognize that we cannot sustainably maintain our current location. Our core group of board members have also been taking on the role of volunteers, consistently sharing the responsibility of staffing the DZL every weekend so that it can remain open. Unfortunately, we have seen very few visitors, and while we know there is community interest in having a zine library in Denver, we want to make sure those same community members are invested in both visiting/utilizing the DZL as well as telling others about this incredible resource.
