 What a great zine fair! It was packed, our SagneZine stall had a lot of readers and a lot of people were charmed and amazed by the giant pair of googly eyes one of my fellow authors brought with (BEST stall merchandising ever, completely outperformed the free lollies for audience engagement and conversation-starting, highly recommend). Thanks to a particularly late Saturday night and an early morning print run before the fair, we had 3 new zines available for the first time, 2 with variant art editions.

The weather, contrary to predictions, was not torrential rain after all, just uninterrupted sunshine over the harbour, very light breeze that picked up a bit in the afternoon but didn't carry any of our little zines off with it, thank goodness.

Our editor-in-chief went to the panel and enjoyed it immensely - she reported the panel topic was about the inception of the MCA Zine fair, its complicated relationship with the Sydney Writers Festival, and included the founder of the fair as a panellist who spoke frankly about how the fair was basically stolen from them after a successful first year (incredibly high-stakes drama for the zine scene).

Happily for mostly everyone else, one of the consequences of stealing a zine fair is you just end up with another zine fair somewhere nearby, hence next weekend is zine fair #2, Other Worlds, at Marrickville Town Hall. Come and say hi if by some fluke you are in the neighbourhood! By happy coincidence I am also in the neighbourhood (Inner West more like Inner Best right?) and will be helping run the stall again. Also we'll have more new zines for your reading pleasure!
