Cherry Bomb Comics, the shop I run with a friend of mine, is organising the Zine Fair on Saturday 23rd. Cherry Bomb will be setting up two tables worth of our wares, as well as part of our reading library (currently tucked away in boxes in the garage since we closed our New North Road shop last year!). We’ll also be showing a couple of zine & comix related films, and there will be other zinesters there selling their stuff, such as Pinktricity, Radical Youth, Moonrocket Distro, Instant Intensity, Sweet Valley 69 and more…

As well as the Zine Fair, workshops will also be running alongside. These workshops are free and open to anyone. The timetable for the workshops is as follows:

11.30am: Cherry Bomb Comix talks to Wellington’s Space Thing about DIY social spaces
12.15pm: Moira from Moonrocket zine distro – zine structures, binding methods, pagination and more
1.00pm: Worse than Queer – women and queers of colour talk about “race” in alternative scenes
2.30pm: Self Defense
3.15pm: Guitar with Brenda from Stood Up (playing at Ladyfest on Saturday 23rd!)

All workshops will be held in the Cross Street Studios, in the library area (the Cross Street library soon to be revealed!) and outside.

So…if you live in Auckland come to Ladyfest! Here’s the poster:
