I've got lots of markets around Manchester lined up at the moment. Still no zine fests (yes I'm still missing them so much) but hopefully soon. Till then, catch me at:
♥ 29th May 2022 – Ancoats Pop-up X KAMPUS / collection code ‘KampusMay29’
♥ 11th June 2022 – Levenshulme Market / collection code ‘LevyJune11’
♥ 2nd July 2022 – Levenshulme Market / collection code ‘LevyJuly2’
♥ 10th September 2022 – Levenshulme Market / collection code ‘LevySept10’
♥ 24th September 2022 – Levenshulme Market / collection code ‘LevySept24’
You can order in advance online and collect for free to save on postage. Just use the collection code (as above) as a coupon code on checkout. I can also order most books in for you – email me (or reply to this) to organise this.
Ps. I'd love to do some zine clubs / queer craft clubs again, but I'm struggling to find venues. Any intel please HMU.
Recently I started a Ko-fi membership at ko-fi.com/penfight - where you can support my work and get digital treats in exhange. Treats include downloadable printable zines, resources, exclusive sale codes and giveaways. (FYI Ko-fi is basically like Patreon without the hefty fees).
The more people sign up, the more time I'll be able to dedicate to offering more rewards, and will also allow me to do things like keep updating the zine events calendar, and making accessible formats of Pen Fight Press zines.
I had the pleasure of reading a preview copy of BAD GAYS, and it officially launches on May 31st. I still have a supply of these great tote bags and other swag that will be going to everyone who orders a copy from me while stocks last.
I bloody love this book. If you have any interest in queer history, I think you will too. Learn about the history of homosexuality and it's construction as an identity through queer villains and baddies. It's available for pre-order here.
