Unfortunately the opening guest speaker on Friday 20th July – George Hardie – isn’t going to be able to join us after all, so zine and comic creator Holly Casio (originally scheduled to talk later in the day) is now going to open the conference with a discussion of her own practice making pamphlets about Bruce Springsteen, as well as a more general discussion about the music zine scene.
Holly has created a number of titles including Me and Bruce, Taking up space, Cool Schmool, Bite Me: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Zine, My Mad Fat Zine, UK Zine Librarians, BruXcore, I love Food Network and Dancing in the dark. She was also in the band The Potentials – a Buffy the Vampire Slayer themed group – so will also be talking about the crossover between music, comics and Buffy fandom…
