I am very excited to hear about your visits to two great zine collections, Frances, and your conversations with other zinesters. This is so indicative of how opportunities often confirm or push us in other directions.
A week ago I went to a recently opened gallery in my town of Eastbourne, UK, to look at a wonderful photography exhibition. Afterwards, I spoke to the invigilator and somehow we got talking about zines. A few days later, I went to see the gallery programme manager, and this led to the idea of me running the first zine making workshop in the gallery, to be held in October! Amazing, and I’ll be posting about this later on WMZ.
