Other Updates & Information
· What has the Denver Zine Library been up to?
o Red Delicious Press: The Denver Zine Library did a zine workshop at Red Delicious Press (http://www.reddeliciouspress.com/) in Aurora in July. We had a fabulous time working with some of the artists at the printmaking facility and look forward to working with them in the future!
o Project YES: The DZL traveled to Project YES (Youth Envisioning Social Change) (http://www.project-yes.org/about.html) in Lafayette, CO and presented a short history of zines and created zines with youth.
· A message from fabulous zinester and co-founder of the Denver Zine Library (Vermicious Knid/Jamez)
As most of you know, I am moving once again. Next month I will be leaving Alaska (for a while, anyway) and moving to Maine to finish school.
This means that:
- my postal address is changing. I move out of my house in two days, so please don't send anything else here. I don't know the new address yet, but mail can always reach me through my mom: 108 Rte 30, Newfane VT 05345.
- my phone number is changing. The current phone number gets cut off tomorrow. If you need to reach me in the next week or so (in other words, before the wedding), I can be reached at Julia's parents' house. E-mail me if you want that number.
- my e-mail is *not* changing. You can always reach me here, and I check pretty regularly, even when I'm on the road. (That does not necessarily mean that I will respond quickly - in that regard, I am as bad as ever.)
Once I am settled in Maine, I will write you all again to give you the new info.

· Also, some folks from the Denver Zine Library (along with some local zinesters) will be traveling to Portland this year for the Portland Zine Symposium. Yay! See you there!
