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!
