2. Upcoming Events
- ShadowPlay’s fanzine evening: 30th November. 7pm til 10pm at Drink, Shop & Do in Kings Cross, London on the 30th November from 7pm-10pm. More information can be found on their blog.
- Girls Get Busy zine will be having their first ever exhibition next month, including lots of amazing live music as well as some great artists and zines. It takes place at the Shacklewell Arms in London from the 3rd to the 4th of December. RSVP on Facebook

3. Submission Calls
 - Creature Mag are calling for people to create a Movember Moustache character for a project in aid of Movember. The best ones will receive prizes!  Deadline: 30th November. Lots more info can be found on their website.

4. Distro News
- Marching Stars distro is off hiatus! The distro has also added 12 new zines to the site, as well as having lots of zines come back into stock. www.marchingstars.co.uk

5. A.O.B.
 - The Brighton Zine Fest Collective have disbanded, which means there will be no more Brighton Zinefests in the near future. This is very sad news, as BZF is one of the biggest annual UK zine events.  If anyone would like to offer words of support, or offer to hold their own zine event in Brighton, you can join the conversation on BZF's facebook page.
