I was lucky enough to recently tour Portland's Independent Publishing Resource Center -- a zine-maker's co-op that provides a lab for self-publishing zinesters who can come in and use the center's computers, printers, copiers, and fantastic letter-press workshop. They offer courses in zine-making (especially in the use of the letter-press, which produces really handsome materials). Membership is a sliding scale of $45-$100 year, and the Center also sports a multi-thousand-volume library of zines that you can use for inspiration. It's just upstairs from Reading Frenzy, the stunning zine store. Link
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
