PDX Zine Symposium Next Weekend, July 24-26
The Portland Zine Symposium takes place at Portland State University this coming weekend, July 24, 25, & 26 (they like to rock it three days up there!). It's always a really fun show, and we're sorry none of the Zine Fest organizers can make it up this year... If you are in the area, we'd definitely recommend checking it out! Its a very diverse and DIY oriented show, with an emphasis on great line-up of workshops on everything from Radical Parenting (co-moderator Tomas Moniz will be leading a similar workshop down here at the SFZF) to a tour of the always inspiring Independent Publishing Resource Center, which has a new certificate program in independent publishing. PZS also does tons of fun events throughout the week leading to the show, from readings and dance parties to a 24-hour make-a-zine challenge!
