Mend My Dress Press’ Anthologizing Your Zine Workshop
Zinesters who have been creating for years and who have many issues of their zine may be thinking about compiling their past issues into an anthology in book format. But how do we sift through content, deciding what to (and what not to) include? What are the pros and cons of self-publishing? Mend My Dress Press authors will go over these questions though our experience and also offer tips on working with designers, promoting books and working with independent bookstores. (Please note: this is not a workshop on how to work within design programs, but will focus on content and strategy.)
1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
