Readers From Our First Quimby’s 24-Hour Zine Challenge Show Off What They Made 1/28

The folks who participated in our first 24-Hour Zine Challenge Jan 14th & 15th will show off what they made. Please note that spaces for the 14th and 15th are full, but we do encourage you to come in and hang out with us until we close a little later than we normally do on Saturdays. On the night of Sat, Jan 14th we’ll be open to midnight!

What was that challenge again? Here’s what we announced to get people to participate:

Perhaps you were not able to participate in the 2011 Revenge of Print Challenge by getting your zine or comic out. Or perhaps you need some encouragement. Do you work well under deadlines? Perhaps you’re addicted to the adrenal rush of zine crafting? Well, you’re in luck. The 24-Hour Zine Challenge is for you. Starting Sat, 1/14 at 7pm and going until 7pm on Sun 1/15 here at Quimby’s, we invite you to come in and make your zine within 24 hours. And we’ll let you crash at our pad. By “pad” we mean on our floor. We provide: paper, minimal scanner use, zine supplies such as a long arm stapler, some food, power strips, temporary free wifi. You provide: sleeping gear, ideas, stamina, your computer or typewriter (if that’s your thing).

We’re inviting folks who signed up for the zine challenge to show off what they made as this event.
