News Round-Up!

Happy easter everyone!  I hope you’re all enjoying the rest of the lovely long weekend with plenty of chocolate eggs!  This fortnight has been a fairly busy one in the UK zine scene, notably for the massive success of the London Zine Symposium last weekend, which plenty of people have written about on their blogs (see below)!  Spill the Zines has now made a flyer, some of which were distributed at the London Zine Symposium - if you want to print and distribute your own, here it is:  We’ve also been syndicated on, which is rather exciting.  Take a look at our re-blogged posts here.

Anyway, enjoy our zine news of the fortnight, and do remember to send us any news of your own for us to feature on the next blog update!
