6pm – 6.30pm: Natalie Bradbury on her zine Shrieking Violet

Manchester writer and self-publisher Natalie Bradbury will share the ‘do’s and ‘dont’s’, joys and frustrations of making a fanzine, as learnt through her experiences of editing, designing and producing print and online zine the Shrieking Violet. Started in August 2009, the Shrieking Violet was originally conceived as an alternative guide to her adopted city of Manchester, and has now featured writers, artists and photographers and general enthusiasts from all over the UK, sharing their enthusiasm for topics as diverse as public art, architecture, Esperanto, maths, bees, swimming pools, wild food foraging and wooden rollercoasters. She will trace the Shrieking Violet’s development over the course of the 20 issues published to date, discussing design hits and misses, production and distribution (both physical and online), as well as spin-off collaborations and events such as the Manchester’s Modernist Heroines project and the annual Victoria Baths Fanzine Convention.

6.30pm – 7.30pm: Self-publishing and DIY Culture:  discussion

Following on from Natalie’s talk, Bradford Baked Zines organisers  Loosely Bound will host an informal discussion on self-publishing and DIY culture, with  individuals and groups who self-publish, including art collective Black Dogs, Natalie Bradbury and others. All are welcome to  contribute and share experiences, ideas and questions around DIY publishing.

Both events happening at Bradford Baked Zines, 13 Market Street, BD1 1LN. No need to book. All welcome
