Yeah, there’s been a few “adverts” of this type on RA lately. For goodness sake, I wish people would provide a short explanation/description of what it is they’re advertising, and not make the assumption that people will know. Also, as pedantic as this may seem, capitalisation in the title is important and gives it impact. “Zine Fair!”, as opposed to zine fair. Given this is the first ‘zine fair’ in “goodness knows how long”, a little bit of background would have gone down a treat. There is nothing in your advert that makes me want to go, tell my friends about it, or forward (by email) to ten of my enemies, sorry. Oh, look at that, a wikipedia link that tells me more about ‘zine’ … thanks, I think.

2. to buy above items (and to talk to other people interested in indie and DIY publishing).

Hey jools … thanks for the info, but I’m confused.

1. What’s a “zine fair”?
2. Why do I want to go?
