This looks like a great opportunity for all you zine makers out there. I found this via Eleanor Cardwell’s amazing blog A Good Idea on Paper and her link to University of the West of England’s Book Art Newsletter (which is a wealth of information!!)
I am really going to push myself to make a new, special edition of The Wandering Uterus Zine for this deadline!! I’m thinking of a dreams really do come true topic, because that is how I feel right now–so happy!
Wouldn’t it be great to get 20 zines in the mail for only $10?!
