The 2011 Richmond Zine Fest is going to be held on October 8th from 11amto 6pm at the Gay Community Center of Richmond.

Sign up for tabling this event is now live, at www.richmondzinefest.org

It really helps the organizers of the zine fest if people register and pay early. We have to raise 1500 dollars to rent the space, and it certainly takes the stress off if we know sooner how much to expect from the tablers.

If you are from out of town and will be looking for a place to stay, the Wingnut might be able to host you. You can take a look at our guest and house policies above if this is something that might interest you. Then please send an email our way at wingnut_collective@yahoo.com We would love to know how many people need a place to stay, and possibly plan some events for fun over the weekend if folks are interested.

Hope to see you this year at the 2011 Richmond Zine Fest! Tell your friends!

 

What to Expect When You Are Expecting… To Be Arrested
Richmond Legal Process Guideline for Anarchists and Others

This is an outline for some important things to keep in mind when embarking on any enterprise which may lead to police detainment or arrest.

This guideline is specifically aimed at folks who might be at risk for arrest due to the political nature of their activities – from protests to civil disobedience to other forms of direct action.

Even when it is no one’s intention to be arrested, the police state will do what it do.

Preparing ahead of time, mentally and logistically can make both those incarcerated and their support network a lot less stressed out.

This guideline is a work in progress and we encourage any suggestions or additions – let us know at wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

The 2011 Richmond Zine Fest will be on October 8th at the Gay Community Center of Richmond! We just confirmed the date and location.

Sign up for tabling and for workshops will all be starting in the next couple of weeks.

The Wingnut tables at the Zine Fest, and will have a couple new publications for this October event.If you are a friend of the Wingnut (or want to become one) feel free to get in touch about the Zine Fest. We should also be able to host some out of town folks to spend the night, as long as you are down with our  Guest Policy (http://wingnutrva.org/wingnut-guest-policy/).

It is a really great time, with lots of neat people locally and from around the country.There is still plenty of time to create your own zine to sell or trade or give away at the Richmond Zine Fest.

The Richmond Zine Fest could definitely use your support and participation this year, as the cost of renting the space has increased. We are doing our best to keep the table costs the same, but that means we have to make up the difference through fundraisers. The next fundraiser will be this Thursday, May 12th at Sprout (1 North Morris Street) at 10pm and will be a Zine Reading with 10 different zinesters sharing from their works!

What better time than the long cold winter for some self reflection, writing, research, and art? Come to the Wingnut on January 12th at 7pm during Open Hours to hang out, drink tea, eat cookies, and work on zines!

Zines are independent published documents frequently associated with DIY (Do It Yourself), punk, and various other subcultures. Some zines are comics, some are art, some have photos, some are personal stories, some are political, and some are informative. You can make your zine however you want to. They come in all shapes and sizes and styles.

There will be people available to give you advice and help with your zines. We will also have a variety of important zine materials available- from staplers to sharpies. We will also have the Approaching Apocalypse Zine Collection available for people to browse and get ideas from!

The Richmond Zine Fest won’t be until next fall, but making a zine now is a good way to stay a part of a zine community all year long!
