Canzine and the One Two Punch Pitch! :comments

Wow, it’s been a while since I updated the blog. So lots to tell you about. The main thing right now is that Canzine is coming up fast. It’s this Sunday. Canzine is the annual festival of zines and alternative culture my magazine Broken Pencil puts on every year. This is one of the best lineups we’ve ever had: 200 zines registered, 6 readers, 6 comedians…if you’re in Toronto or nearby this weekend, I heartily recommend you check it out. It is awesome. Complete times, place, and schedule for the day is here.

Also we still have some spots open for the One Two Punch Pitch event happening at Canzine. For this spectacle, contestants get two minutes to pitch a book idea in any genre or format. Then the three judges – myself, Michael Holmes of ECW Press, and literary agent Samantha Haywood – each have 1 minute to respond. The best pitch wins a Broken Pencil prize pack worth $150 and, who knows?, maybe even a request to see that manuscript in somebody’s in-box pronto. To sign up for this, email your pitch to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

So that’s it for now. After Canzine I promise to get back to regular blogging and update everybody on the Peep book, new articles, and the general ups and downs of my existence. See ya Sunday I hope!

I went camping with a ton of my friends at a local campsite. We had like six tents full of people, but no one really did much sleeping. We went hiking, had a campfire, and played games and talked. It was really cheap and everybody had a ton of fun. Just be sure to bring a LOT of different games and activities. Oh, and food. smilefacebook backgrounds
