It’s been about a year since we last posted on this blog. I’m sorry if you’ve tried to contact us or have been checking back but a lot of things happened just after our last post which has meant that the fetus and I have kind of disappeared from zine making and trading. I have though just finished a new zine which is pretty much about this disappearance (from my end at least)
Letters To A Sister, A5, 36 pages, bw & colour
So this is the zine. It has a colour cover and centrefold (not that kind!) and is pretty much a personal zine written after the death of my little sister last February. I’ve given some to Sticky for the 2012 Festival of the Photocopier (see below for details) and some will be going out to Take Care Distro but other than that I guess it’ll be a pretty small run. It has been a tiring year, and I feel as though the energy I had when I first started writing zines is pretty rapidly dissipating. If you want to trade though, please email email@example.com for my address (the PO Box expired while I was overseas and I was too late to renew it). I’ll be checking the email address again, I promise.
Check out Burbs Festival 2010 this weekend in Blacktown. Take Care zine distro will be there with an excellent collection of zines from all around, definitely worth a train ride
17th April, from 1pm and it’s FREE!
Blacktown Showground (Richmond Rd, Blacktown)
It’s easy to get to, but I thought I’d be a smart arse and put a map up for y’all.

Take Care Zine Distro will be officially opening on the 1st of January 2010. You’ll be able to buy a wide variety of zines and comics etc from them online.
Check out their site on the 1st of January takecarezines.org
I found some very exciting news this morning when I opened my google reader, a new zine distro is starting up in fair old Sydney town. Take Care Zine Distro will be the combined efforts of Emma D. from Flying Machine and Tim who plan to have a regular stall around town as well as a mail order system for buying zines. They are looking for zine makers to send them zines, so this is a big old call out to all of you zine makers out there to get posting.
Find out more info by e-mailing Emma and Tim at takecarezines(at)gmail.com

Most importantly, spread the word! Feel free to repost the info!
