International Zine Month: what I want to do this July

Because this is the 4th year I’ll participate in the activities proposed for International Zine Month 2015 by Stolen Sharpie Revolution, I’d like to change the program a bit for myself. I’ve already done most of the activities, so I don’t feel like repeating everything again. izm2015posterHere is a list of things I’d like to do this July (including some already mentioned in the original program, here on the right ->):
