2011: Revenge of Print Pops Up Elsewhere Too!

If you’ve been following our blog you know that 2011 has been declared the Revenge of Print, because we’re all tired of “the end of publishing as we know it” stories. Revenge of Print is a campaign to get as many people as possible to self-publish in 2011. We’ve been seeing it pop up in a whole variety of places, and we stumbled on to some more places too!

Yes, there’s a group for it on Facebook. Yeah, it’s been Tweeted. But it’s also been posted on  Microcosm Publishing’s site. And now there’s a wemakezines group!

Maybe you’ve been putting off another issue of your zine. Perhaps you’ve never printed one. Why not commit? Pledge your allegiance to it Facebook. And yes, the irony of posting it there is not lost on us. But still! Announce it to the world so that you’re forced to zine-i-fy.
