Publish & Be Damned on today!

It totally slipped my mind to write an update this earlier in the week, but self-publishing fair Publish & Be Damned is on TODAY, starting at 3pm (til 8pm) at Oxford House in Bethnal Green, London. Here's the lowdown:

"Surveying a wide range of independent local, national and international publishers of magazines, fanzines, journals, diaries and periodicals, Publish and Be Damned celebrates publishing as a creative and critical space for presenting artists' work. As with previous years, the fair celebrates experimental approaches to making and distributing the work of artists, writers and musicians outside of the commercial mainstream. In addition we will have room dedicated to performances and talks throughout the afternoon."

Handmade Brighton

Calling all Brighton-based creatives and craft-lovers! If you need a space to sell your wares, or want a peek at what other crafty folk get up to behind closed doors (without having to trawl for hours through Etsy), Handmade Brighton is here to help. The new monthly event aims to gather together local hand-made craft and fashion sellers, showcasing new talents and providing a space for everyone to meet and greet and buy original, handmade goods without the hassle of Internet fees or commission.

The event will be taking place on the 4th October downstairs at the Komedia, North Laines, and in addition to the craft stalls, there'll be live music, have-a-go workshops, bar, cakes and refreshments available from the Komedia cafe.

If you'd like to be considered for a stall or would like further info, email (the organisers advise booking stalls early to avoid disappointment). More info can also be found on their blog:

Off to sunnier shores...

Just a quickie to let you all know that we're away on hols from now 'til the 13th, so any orders made between now and then won't be posted out until the 14th. We're not ignoring/forgetting you! Both issues are still available and as always we NEED to get rid of them, mainly so I can have a corner of floorspace back in my room (I think the carpet's changed colour), and also because printing costs quite a bit & we're still far from the target for Issue #3. To complete (or start) your mini collection of Shebang zines, pay a visit to our online shop: MMM RETAIL THERAPY

Bon Voyage!
