The fair will be the final day in what's set to be a HUGE zine event, spanning 5 days, and including:
- The "Publish You" book launch, which includes submissions from tons of small press folks & zinesters, and also aims to act as a manifesto and discussion of the contemporary small press scene.
- Are You Zine Friendly? A chance for all those involved in small press to meet up and trade and sell their wares, along with music and general fun times. Even those who are zine-less are welcome to join in the celebrations and to hopefully go home with a goody bag of zine swag!
- Spoken Word Night Out! Taking a step away from the printed page, this night will see poetry, zine readings, story-telling and other performances from artists working in print media.
- Collaborama! A jam-packed BEAST of a zine event, Collaborama is a combination of zine, comix and small press stalls, a bbq, film screenings, workshops, performances and talks, and the chance for people to come together to create a collaborative zine for the day.
And to top it all off, Sunday will be the second Alternative Press Fair, a chilled-out day of perusing stalls selling comix, zines, poetry, radical literature and arts; a great ending to what's set to be a fantastic event!

Hope to see you there!
