Update on the Year so Far

First semester went really well! We have a lot of new members. I know its hard to get everyone out to meetings but I'd say we've had a pretty successful beginning to the year.

Cut and Paste party in September generated some energy within the group. And Our trip to Canzine was interesting to say the least.

We have tons of zines made by group members now, thanks to our 2 week zine project! Congratulations to everyone who published their first zine this year :)

Coming up we will begin work on On the Cusp #2, and preparations for Gettazine in February.

If anyone is interested, we will be meeting in the zine library at 12 noon tomorrow for an hour or so to fix up the zine library, and discuss plans for Gettazine and next semesters schedule for the Sheridan Self Publishers. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend with their input.

If I don't see you tomorrow, hopefully I will see you at our last meeting. We will have one more meeting before Christmas and then it is right into Gettazine, full force.

Don't forget to sign up for the mailing list if you'd like to receive regular updates, or join our Facebook group!

We went over things to expect for this year. Meetings will be approximately every other week at 6pm on Monday (room to be announce depending on activity). We will have guest speakers, field trips, film viewings, 3 group zine projects (maybe more) and of course Gettazine 2009 will take place in February. There is more, too! You're gonna love it!

first meeting + :)

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to a new year at Sheridan, and a new, even more radical year with the Sheridan Self Publishers.

We are going to be doing a LOT this year. Group zines, individual zines, field trips, guest speakers, zine fairs and MORE! I am very very excited and I hope you are too.

I will tell you all about this upcoming year at our first meeting.

The first meeting will be very informal, I am going to let you know what to expect over the semester, and then we are going to pour over all the many many donations we got for the zine library over the summe r(200-300, i think).

This will give you a good introduction to what zines are, and hopefully get you all fired up for the year ahead.

THE FIRST MEETING WILL BE MONDAY SEPTEMBER 8, 2008 at 4:00 pm in room A137.

see you there!

If you have any questions, email back or call me at 905-510-1963.

Take care!
