1. The next AmaZine Day is May 18th, register now!

Please join us for the 4th-ever AmaZine Day, a quarterly mini-zine fest held at the Independent Publishing Resource Center (1001 SE Division)! This AmaZine Day will be from 2-7 pm on May 18th. We’ll be serving up Arnold Palmers, Ninkasi beer, and having a bake sale. At 3pm, we’ll have a Single-Sheet Zine Workshop with Blue and, at 5pm, we’ll be having a Lettering Writing and Envelope Making Workshop with Joshua James and Sarah Geo. We’ll also be having readings and visual presentations, split into two short parts at 4pm and 6pm. Readers include Aron Nels Steinke, Alex Wrekk, Sarah Mirk, and more to be announced!

The event is FREE to attend, or sign up for a slice of table for $5 in-person at the IPRC, or at Portland Button Works. When you stop by to sign up, grab a stack of flyers to help promote the event! All proceeds from the event will benefit the Portland Zine Symposium and the IPRC.

2. 2013 PZS Tabling Prices Go UP in 1 Week!

As covered in our Tabling FAQ and in the registration you may have already filled out, on May 1st, tabling prices will increase to $50 for a large space for two days, $30 for a large space for one day, $35 for a small space for two days, and $20 for a small space for one day. This does not apply if you have both registered and already filled out a workshop application or made other arrangements with us. Read more here… http://www.portlandzinesymposium.org/tabling-faq/

3. Help us Flyer!

Help us get the word out about AmaZine Day and other fundraisers! Helping us promote is a great way to help Portland Zine Symposium and grow our community.

If you want to help, you can pick up AmaZine Day posters and fliers from either the IPRC in SE (1001 SE Division) or Portland Button Works in North Portland (1322 N. Killingsworth St.) We’ll have special surprise packs for those of you who stop by to help out to reward you! Helping up flier can also go toward complete your volutneer commitment for a five dollar discount on your 2013 Portland Zine Symposium registration.

1. Registration is open, but you probably knew that! It’s been thrilling so far…
We launched registration for tabling space at the 13th Annual Portland Zine Symposium on March 25th. The first few days, we had over 100 applications! PZS strives to be inclusive, so registration is first come, first serve (as long as ya got zines). We built our own registration forms for the new site using google docs, which has saved us a fair amount of money, but it also means that we send out invoices manually this year. Payment confirmations are manual as well. due to this do-it-ourselves approach and the fact that the organizing collective is all-volunteer, it may take a couple of days to get your invoice once you register. We have really appreciated everyone’s patience and excitement. Thanks so much for being apart of PZS! If you haven’t registered yet, we have at least 40 more spaces before we transition to having to start a waiting list. So, if you or a ziney friend haven’t hit up our site to reserve your spot, you might want to get on that! You can find the registration form here… www.portlandzinesymposium.org/register
2. The PZS Workshop Application is LIVE!

We finalized the workshop application for this year and we’re super stoked to see what workshops, panels, or discussions our community members step up facilitate. If you are interested in facilitating a workshop, panel, or discussion, just fill out the application. The PZS organizing collective votes on every application we receive, then we let you know. If you do facilitate a workshop, panel, or discussion, you’ll be compensated with a small tabling space for your work. Due to our budget constraints, we can only provide one complimentary small tabling space for any workshop, even if it is led by multiple people. We can also only provide only one small space per person, even if you lead multiple workshops. Check out the form here… http://www.portlandzinesymposium.org/workshop-application/

3. PZS is looking for a rad screen printer to do the 2013 shirts.


While we’ve used a few different screen printers over the years, we wanted to put out there to PZS fans that we are beginning our price comparisons for this year’s screen printer and open to new suggestions. As an non profit organization, it would be especially nice to find a screenprinteer that would be willing to donate at least part of the cost for a tax write-off and we, of course, can provide our Federal Tax ID Number. Beyond that, however, we’d really like to give our community business.  We’d also like to find a screen printer who would be willing to print on used shirts, do an initial batch before the main run (about 20 shirts, saving the screen for future printings after all our pre-orders come in for the 2013 design), and can print with white and black ink on red with care. The screen printer would be printing the incredible 2013 design (http://www.portlandzinesymposium.org/poster-art/) incredible poster by Asher Craw (http://ashersprogress.tumblr.com/). Please contact us at pdxzines@gmail.com if you are interested or know of anyone!
4. We’re always looking for more volunteers, get involved today!
Another new form up on our website is our volunteer form, which helps you figure out how and when you want to help out PZS and connects us to you. If you want to help PZS, we have a variety of opportunities for you to get involved. Check out the form here… http://www.portlandzinesymposium.org/volunteer/
