Cost: Free
Venue: Canberra Contemporary Art Space, Gorman House Arts Centre, 55 Ainslie Avenue, Braddon

Last year’s fair was really great, so if you’re in Canberra or able to get there we highly recommend it. Vanessa Berry will be conducting a zine work shop on the day. You need to book in advance to attend that, so direct all inquiries to the number above, or checkout the ACT Writers Centre website for more details.

Edit: Site updated today! We have issues of Doris zine back in stock! That’s Doris #21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27 (Thanks to Cindy’s enormous generosity these issues are priced 50c cheaper than when we had previously listed them. Thank you Cindy!) and copies of the wonderfully amazing, amazingly wonderful Doris zine anthology. Unfortunately, we have no copies of the latest issue, issue #28, of Doris yet, but we’ll get onto that soooooon… Also, we have added newish issues of Culture Slut (in the time it took for surface mail to get from Canada to Australia Amber made another issue): there’s another beautiful, full colour polaroid edition (Culture Slut #23) as well as the previous issue (#22), and the latest issue (#5) of Fight Boredom, extolling the joys of feminism, DIY culture and girl love. Usual disclaimer: there are no descriptions yet, but we’re working on them.

Yeow, we will be taking all these zines with us to the fair on Saturday, so watch out, Canberra.
