We currently have 41 participants who’ve signed up – although remembering to sign-up does not preclude you from writing a zine. The sign-up is more for the camaraderie and opportunity to set an intention for the zine.

Much like an NPR/PBS fund drive, I know some people are driven by the Special Gift. We have a pin and zine for you in exchange for you finishing your zine and sending us a copy.

So, get your asses in gear! There’s enough time yet!

Last year was the first year that Shannon, Raven, and I handled the logistics of 24HZT, and I have to say, I think we’re learning. We should do something more exciting with the zines that show up. What if this year, we featured a new 24 hour zine or two on the blog each month? That will keep us craving the insanity until July rolls around again.

Any other ideas of what we can do to celebrate?
