* Upcoming Fancy Tiger class *
Make a zine! - $10
Learn how to make a zine! This class is for people who aren't
really sure what a zine is as well as veteran zinesters looking for
new ideas. Taught by a Denver Zine Librarian, you will hear about
the history of zines and the local zine community, see several
options for zine layouts, and learn the mechanics of assembling a
zine. Come with some creative ideas and leave with a starter zine.
Class fee includes all materials. For more information about zines
in Denver, check out http://www.denverzinelibrary.org
1 2 hour class
Saturday, November 11th 4:30-6:30
At Fancy Tiger, 1 South Broadway
* Fancy Tiger class *
On October 14th, the Denver Zine Library taught their first zine
class at Fancy Tiger. Although we had originally hoped for more than
two people, this intimate class was perfect to help the students get
some ideas for a specific project they're working on together.
Denver, keep your eyes open for a new zine about being a single
mother! We look forward to working with more zine novices and even
veterans at our next class, Saturday 11/11!
* Other zine workshops *
The Denver Zine Library went to two sections of an Introduction to
Women's Studies at Auraria to explain what zines are and the many
ways they can look. Students in both sections got excited about
their class assignment once they saw how much flexibility can be
found in making zines. We hope to get some finished copies donated
to the Denver Zine Library. Thanks to Arlene Sgoutas for
introducting so many folks to zines!
* Pedal Powered Bike Tour *
Along with several other organizations, the Denver Zine Library
hosted a screening of several films as part of the Pedal Powered
Movie Tour. About 40 people came to watch short films addressing the
US-Mexico border. Filmmaker Bill Brown biked from Washington DC to
Boulder to screen the films.
For more information on the tour and descriptions of the films,

OTHER LOCAL PROJECTS:
Hi, this is Weston of Junktown zine. My girlfriend, Lynne, and I are planning on putting together a sorta' McSweeny's-style short fiction zine (or literary review if you want to make legit). We're looking for short stories from Denver, or maybe just Colorado, based writers for the first issue. In the future, we'll include writers from elsewhere and maybe have "themes" and whatnot, but for this first one, it just has to be fiction and you just have to be from Colorado.
And don't forget...
Visit the zine library located inside The Other Side Arts at:
