this saturday (may 12th) we are hosting a little zine reading + zine workshop at coFWD in rochester! if you're anywhere near by, or willing to/can travel here, you should totally come! tukru & emma (of fanzine ynfytyn) will be reading from their zines and then pieces from some of their favourite zines! then we are gonna do a wee workshop with general talk about zines and show how to make them, including practical bits like layout ideas, making flats and printing tips. and we'll also make a little workshop compilation zine!
you can visit medwayzines.tumblr.com for more info AND zine related things, and there's also a facebook event page if that's your thing.
as the venue isn't a so called public space you'll need to book your place in advance, which you can do here. booking is free cos well, the cost of the workshop is going to depend a bit on how many people turn up! but officially it's £2+ donation on the day. you can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and confirm through there if the eventbrite page doesn't work for you for some reason. the eventbrite page also has the exact location and i will be emailing directions etc to all participants before hand.

i just totally copied this from the vampire sushi website (because i think if i tried to re-write it again i doubt i'd ever get this post out in time!) I CANNOT BELIEVE I HAVE NOT POSTED ABOUT THIS ON MY VERY OWN BLOG. what is wrong with me??
i'm super excited about the workshop but i am also so fucking nervous. i'm so scared no one is going to turn up, or that i will mess up and it will go horribly wrong and no one will ever want to make zines or anything. though i'm 90% sure it won't go quite that bad. i mean, not all of those thing will happen in one go. right? luckily i've got emma coming along to help me and she's run some zine workshops before at brighton zine fest. and i suppose nerves are good, and expected in such situation, right? i just feel so unprepared.. i got so excited though when i visited the space last month and booked the space & time. i really hope it goes well and maybe we can do it again sometime.
so yeah, if you're in medway area, or are willing to travel here this saturday, you should come!
