I'm going to be London bound in June to put up an exhibition of the posters from Shape & Situate zine (#s 1&2) as part of the always-great Zine Fest! at The Women's Library...

(Blurb by Red Chidgey, organiser of Zine Fest! 2011)
Zines are hand-made magazines made for love not money. Requiring few resources to self-publish - just a pen, a piece of paper, access to a photocopier - zines are made on the fringes of journalism, art systems, activist scenes, and bedroom cultures. Basically, they rock.
We're super happy to confirm the 4th Zine Fest! to be happening at The Women's Library, London.
The Women's Library has a growing zine collection, covering the 1970s to now, which was first donated by the Ladyfest London 2001 collective.
The Zine Fest! event in June aims to showcase feminist, queer and women's media projects, hold workshops and discussion spaces, bring together loads of zine makers and stalls, and make connections between different generations of feminist publishing.
The event is free and open to everyone. We hope to see you there!
