"I'm Peter part of the zine symposium crew and separate to this years event on the 2nd and 3rd of April me and some friends are organising EGAKU - a zine/print/art/etc fair at Jaguarshoes in Shoreditch to raise money for the thousands of people effected by the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We are trying to get as much donated work as possible to sell at the event and raise as much money as possible. We have a lot of create creative people involved including NoBrow, Okido, Laura Carlin, Jean Jullien, Anorak Magazine and lots more flowing in. We are asking if any of you would donate any zines, prints, bags, books - anything. 100% of the money we make from this event will be donated to Japan. EGAKU means "draw" and "imagine " in Japanese. we hope that we can support Japanese people EGAKU ( imagine) peaceful future by EGAKU (draw)."

2. Submission Call: Library Love Zine!
The London Girls Rock Camp to be held in summer 2011 is hoping to put together a zine ahead of the event. If you've attended, volunteered at or otherwise been involved in a Girls Rock Camp in the past, organiser Kate would love to have your contribution! If you can think of anything related to the theme of teaching and learning music with girls and women you'd like to write, please get in touch. You can visit the Facebook page of Girls Rock! UK for more general information on the project here.
We're still figuring out how best to get (and keep) this blog up and running; and as news has been a wee bit slow recently we're going to start posting news round-ups fortnightly rather than weekly (until such a time as we have more news to report). Please continue to send us any news you have and spread the word amongst your zine friends!
