AmaZine Day Is Almost Week Away! — Sign up to table or help us promote…

This post is our newsletter from February 1st! Want to get these awesome newsletters delivered straight to your mailbox? Join our google group!
You’ve got one more week to help us promote and to sign up for the 3rd Amazine Day!

AmaZine Day is organized by volunteers from both the Independent Publishing Resource Center and the Portland Zine Symposium and is a benefit for both. If you want to help us out, we’ve made some special “Thank You” Packs and left them at IPRC for anyone with the free time and radness to help us flier and poster to promote AmaZine Day… There is s huge stack of posters and handbills for those interesting in helping us flier….

If you don’t have oodles of free time yourself, you can still help us out by sharing the event on your blog, website, or social network! 
The event is on our website here:
And on Facebook here:
There is also this short video you can share about the event here:

Just a few of the tablers we have signed up so far include Ms. Valerie Park Distro ( ), Pony Boy Press ( ), Portland Button Works ( ), and Gabby Holden ( ). Gabby Holden is also one of the zinesters that will be part of the love (or anti-love) themed reading at 5pm during AmaZine Day.

Want to be added to the ranks of tablers? Just head over to IPRC (1001 SE Division) and sign up for AmaZine Day at the front desk for just $5! There is still availability for tabling, but you’ve only got a week to sign up!

Now, as a special little freebie, you may have noticed our url looks different. That’s right, the PZS website is building a new internet home featuring our 2013 poster artist, which should be officially launched by Monday! Stay tuned…

See you February 9th!

With Respect,
The Portland Zine Symposium Organizers

Hang Posters for the 3rd AmaZine Day!


I snapped this photo of the volunteer packs that fellow organizer Sarah assembled for us to leave at the IPRC for anyone awesome enough to help promote the 3rd AmaZine Day by hanging up posters and distributing fliers around Portland!

We left a huge stack of posters and handbills at both the IPRC and Portland Button Works for anyone to drop by and pick them up (during open hours). If you can, we wanted to reward you for being apart of our “street team” with something most zinesters love… Sarah handpicked postcards, stationary pads, pens, pencils, and more to be assembled in these “Thank You!” packs. If you do hang up posters and distribute fliers for us, be sure to let us know by emailing us at and telling us what part of town you covered…. And be sure to grab one of these rad “Thank You!” packs!

In case you haven’t seen ‘em yet, here’s what the posters look like….
