Here’s what happened at Canzine Vancouver 2018:



1pm – 7pm – The Global Zine Project, a hands-on exhibition. Zines, chapbooks and underground printed artifacts from around the world. Come explore underground scenes from New Zealand to Zaire! (Contributions to the exhibit are still welcome.)

4pm  The Vancouver Noir Small Press Resurgence: Inequality, drugs, Is Vancouver the new Noir capitol of North America? A panel with Sam Wiebe, John Belshaw and SG Wong. Learn about our panelists below!

SAM WIEBE is the author of the Vancouver crime novels Last of the Independents, Invisible Dead, and Cut You Down. Wiebe’s work has won an Arthur Ellis Award and the Kobo Emerging Writers Prize, and he was the 2016 Vancouver Public Library Writer in Residence. His short fiction has appeared in ThugLit, Spinetingler, and subTerrain, among other places. He is the editor of Vancouver Noir


S.G. Wong writes the Lola Starke series and Crescent City short stories: hard-boiled detective tales set in an alternate-history 1930s-era “Chinese L.A.” replete with ghosts and magic. A Whistler Independent Book Awards nominee and Arthur Ellis Awards finalist, Wong speaks 4 languages, usually only curses in one of them, and is based in Edmonton, where she can often be found staring out the window in between frenzied bouts of typing.



John Belshaw makes his home in Vancouver’s East End where he writes history, reviews a bunch of books, messes about with fiction, and teaches online. He’s the co-author (with Diane Purvey) of Vancouver Noir: 1930-1960 (Anvil, 2011) and editor of Vancouver Confidential (Anvil, 2014).
