Info. about some of the tablers at this year’s fest, what they will be tabling, and anything else they thought you should know.
Focuses on zines that are about Anarchist theory and practice, in regards to philosophy, self-sufficiency skills, and anything on the periphery. Will occasionally have magazines, books, or documentaries/videos. Usually ask for monetary donations to match costs of printing, paper, or dvd’s (anti-profit overall though…will consider zine/literature donations in exchange).

LEAVE YOUR MARK BOOKMARKS – L.Y.M.B. is a new project that I started in attempts to connect readers in a unique and creative way. All the bookmarks are FREE and handcrafted. Recipients of bookmarks are asked to mark their page from time to time and reflect on their reading experience. They are invited to send their reflections toa website/blog where they are reposted for others to read. Though it launched only two months ago, bookmarks have found their way into two countries, four states, and six bookstores, encouraging people in all these places to leave their mark.
and ACHIEVING AVALON LANDING: ISSUE #1 – Achieving Avalon Landing is my first zine. It spawned from a blog where I post creative non-fiction from time to time. A.A.L. started out as an exercise in pursuit of original thought, but became a collection of stories about people and experiences that have confirmed, challenged, and changed my perspective. A documentation of personal observations, this zine is less about me than it is about the characters I’ve encountered along the way.
