The Rad Library needs your help! Please see the information below.
The Rad Library is seeking volunteers to help run things – we are a mobile community library that sets up in Hyde Park each Sunday between 1-5, you can find us either at the Pagoda closest to the stage or at the stage. As a lot of the original members have moved on we are frequently a little short of people to run it! So if you’re free on a Sunday just drop down and have a look at our collection of Radical books & Zines – yes, we have them too!
You can get in touch with The Rad Library by emailing the.rad.library AT gmail DOT com.

Interviews with about 70 zine makers, ex-zine makers, and readers from the northwest. Featuring footage of the Portland Zine Symposium, other zine related events, and activities bringing zine culture to life.

dotdotdash and The Perth Zine Collective invite you to submit to Fingerprint – issue 10 of dotdotdash!
Fingerprint is a special zine issue of dotdotdash. Rather than submitting creative writing or art to the magazine, you are invited to submit a zine.
Every zine in Fingerprint needs to be printed, drawn, scanned, inked or marked in some way with a fingerprint. This fingerprint can be your own or your pet’s. It could even simply be metaphorical. As long as it’s an image that relates, it will be okay.
Click here to check out the poster for more info on how to submit.
Submissions close 7th May 2012.

‘Look at us; we are, sincerely!’ is a new Perth-based single sheet zine looking for contributions!
The theme of the first volume is Horrific and Touching, hoping to print in either April or May of this year. Can you say something horrific and touching in just one sentence? ‘look at us’ is looking to have a section dedicated to just one sentence submissions. Feel free to email any you have to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can have a look at their Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/Lookatus

The Perth Zine Collective will be running a workshop at the Inglewood library on Friday as part of the Summerset Arts Festival. From the Summerset Arts Festival website (http://www.stirling.wa.gov.au/summersetfestival/library_events.html):
“Ever wanted to have your say and get your point across? Sure there are blogs, but zines are funky, retro, kitschy ways to explore your passions, your creativity and your ideas. The workshop will start with an introduction into zines, followed by making your own, and then reproducing and sharing them.”
Date: Friday 3 February
Time : 3.30pm – 5.00pm
Venue: Inglewood Library
Phone: 9205 7700
Ages: 10 – 16
We hope you can swing by, have fun and make some zines!
