Madison Zine Fest 2005
You are invited to the volunteer meeting for the Madison Zine Fest,
which will take place Monday, April 18th at 6pm in the SLIS commons on
the 4th floor of Helen C. White Hall (doors are to the left of the
entrance of College Library).
Please come if you are interested in lending a hand in the preparation
of the fest, if you'd like to be involved come October, or if you are
interested in promoting independent, underground or alternative
materials and publications. I am looking for help in promoting, funding
and programming this year's events and would love for this year's fest
to grow within the Madison Community.
The Madison Zine Fest is a collaboration with the Wisconsin Book
Festival, and both events are scheduled for October 12-16, 2005.
This year's fest already has a few exciting sponsors to announce, among
them Punk Planet, and the Madison Public Library. Out first confirmed
guest for the 2005 is Sanford Berman, who provides a great start to the
second annual event (for more info on Sandy, see:
An all-new 2005 zine fest website is in the works, and an email list has
been created. To add yourself to the list and stay updated with all the
latest, go to: http://madisonzinefest.org/mailman/listinfo/mailman
This event has many opportunities for group or individual involvement
and I welcome any suggestions or proposals for events, promotions or
resources. If you are interested in getting involved, but are unable to
make the meeting, please do not hesitate to get in touch, and please
feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
