If you do not see your zine listed here but have already sent it out, or just completely forgot, send me an email at 24hourzines[at]gmail.com and we will work it out!
Things are beginning to wrap up around here for this year’s event. I have spent the day addressing envelopes, so if your zine is listed here your Participant Pin (pictured above) will be sent out on Tuesday. The sign-up sheet is open, so if you like to be an early bird go ahead and sign up for next year’s event!
Thank you to everyone who signed up, sent in their zine, organized or attended an event, and even the ones who attempted but did not finish. No worries! All that matters is that you helped to keep zines alive and going, which is what this event is all about.
