April 21st, 2009 · post by Fred Goodsell · Make a comment

Members of the Last Hours collective are also involved in putting on the London Zine Symposium, an annual event celebrating small press and independent publishing.

This years symposium is now less than two weeks away and is set to become one of the biggest small press events in the calender.

The organisers say:

This May the London Zine Symposium is entering it’s fifth year. Born of humble beginnings in 2005, in a squatted social centre on Gower street, it has grown from having 15 stalls, a couple of talks and a few hundred people, to this year where we have over 50 stalls holders, a full day of talks, workshops and if the buzz on Facebook is anything to go by expecting over 1,000 people to attend with zinesters traveling from across the UK, the USA, Spain, France, and Germany in order to attend.

Workshops and talks range from how to run a zine library to an examination of the rise of the zine festival and how to organise one. As well as this a range of almost 60 stalls will be pedaling their wares including Active Distribution, Stolen Sharpie Revolution, Corndog Publishing, Morgenmuffel and of course Last Hours.

London Zine Symposium 2009 will be on Sunday 3rd May 2009 between 12-6pm at The Rag Factory, 16-18 Heneage Street, London E1 5LJ. Entry is free.
