Congratulations to all of you for surviving the first week of the 2011 24 Hour Zine Thing! A few participants have already posted on the Facebook page about their finished zines, and I’m sure there are more of you out there sitting on finished zines! Please feel free to post pictures, ask questions, spread advice and help each other out!
Two events have been confirmed this week!
24 Hour Zine Thing at The Olympia Timberland Library with Gumar and His Magical Midi Band!
Date: 7/29/2011, 1:00 PM- 9:00 PM Location: 313 8th Ave SE, Olympia WA map Phone: 360-352-0595 Email: email@example.com
Your 24HZT challenge: to make a 24-page zine from conception to completion in 24 hours straight. Drop in to the library’s meeting room between 1 and 7 p.m. to use the library’s resources and work with zinester volunteers to create your zine. Supplies provided include recycled magazines, glue sticks, long armed staplers, typewriters, paper, and of course a copy machine. All are welcome to read at the Zinester Open Mike at 7 p.m., to be followed by an epic dance party with Gumar and His Magical Midi Band. All ages and levels of experience are welcome. Supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring materials to use or share.

from conception to final product in 24 hours straight.
Zines should be of suitable size and technical difficulty
so that this truly is a challenge for individual zinesters.
