About the Symposium

The 7th annual London Zine Symposium will be a day celebrating zines, small press, comix, radicals can DIY culture.


First stalls confirmed for 2011



With just under six weeks to go before the big day we’re happy to announce the first confirmations of stalls for the 2011 London Zine Symposium. 2011 will once again see over sixty distros, collectives and individual sine makers selling their wares on the day. This year we have people coming from Finland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Italy and across the UK. It’s going to be an amazing spread of different zines to pick up. You can see full details of the first confirmations at

We’ve also announced the early details of our workshops, walks and talks. The Anarchist Teapot are returning to feed us all, and Past Tense are once again going to be running their popular radical history walk around the East End. You can see full details at:
