READERSVOICE.COM aims to collect a few interesting reading tips. ZICS, the Zine and Indie Comics Symposium, was held at the Queensland State Library in Brisbane recently. It was like a small-scale comic con, where comics creators could hire a table and sell comics they’d made or had printed professionally. It'd be great to see other festivals include a large section where writers could simply hire tables to show their wares. It'd be good exposure for both unknown and more established artists and writers, and more readers could find something interesting.
