Canzine Festival is this Sunday

The annual Toronto Canzine festival–a celebration of zine culture aimed at young and innovative magazine creators and enthusiasts, but of course open to all–is coming up on Sunday, October 23 from 1-7pm at the 918 Bathurst Centre (so named for its address, 918 Bathurst Street).

Organized by two-time NMA-nominated magazine Broken Pencil, the festival lineup includes an array of fun, crowd-pleasing events such as speed pitching (contestants have two minutes to pitch a book proposal to a panel of judges), author readings and a panel discussion on mental health and zine making. See the full line-up on the Pencil website or on Facebook.

And hey, the Vancouver Canzine edition is also on the horizon, November 13 at the Ukrainian Hall.
