Attention zinesters! 

You’re cordially invited to join us this coming Saturday September 13th from midday, when we’re hosting the annual Yuck ‘n Yum Zine Fair at Abertay University’s luxurious Hannah Maclure Centre. 

Up there on the top floor penthouse plaza we’ll have an array of zines, exciting events, coffee and comfy sofas, all bathed in glorious sunshine*.

*Sun may not be shining.

We’ll present a Q&A with the creators of the venerable football fanzine 'The Final Hurdle', when creators Martin Manzi and Steve Malone will talk about the longevity of the zine and how they’ve chronicled the trials and tribulations of being a Dundee United fan.

There’s also live music from the Plastik zine boys Kieran and Joe, bringing experimental twinkliness to the masses.

Manning the stalls will be a mass of red hot zine talent that includes Honey Press, StArt Magazine, the Anti Social Writers, Plastik, Alex Hetherington, Paul Milne, Jessica Taylor and Peony Gent, amazing risograph zines from the renowned Brownlee brothers, and some international flavour from Klaus Pinter and his zine all the way from Vienna. Yuck ‘n Yum will host a stall too! 

All this is happening from 12 to 5 for free, so it’s a must. Be there! 


Lots of love,
Team Yuck 'n Yum xoxo

Yuck 'n Yum - ZINE FAIR CALL OUT!‏

The annual Yuck 'n Yum zine fair returns for a third year! This year taking over the entirety of Dundee's HMC as part of the Dundee Doors Open Day weekend on the 13th of September (Sat).

We have lots of exciting talks and presentations lined up and there will be live zine making on the day!

We also have some amazing folk signing up for stall holding on the day. And we wondered if any of you delicious Yuck 'n Yummers fancied getting involved?

Stalls are 5 bucks. They're 3ft long. And we'll be open from 12 - 5 for the public. With hopefully much footfall from the Doors Open events.

If you have work, but perhaps not enough to host a stall, we'll be curating a YnY stall; with various works from those who cant attend. For this, we take a 10% commission on all sales. And unsold items will be returned, if provided with a s.a.e for the correct postage.

Either way, pop the date in your diary and come on down! Updates will be imminent!

Lots of love,
Team Yuck 'n Yum xoxo
