In recent months Ive had several inquiries from Eastern Federation clubs asking for a list of hobby related publications that have a calendar of events that can be used to publicize club shows and swaps.
Heres the list which I have. Remember, most of these publications have a 3 - 4 month lead time so youll have to get your information in to them early enough to meet their deadline.
