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.
Include date, place, sponsoring club, name and address of show chair or contact for info. Some also allow space for listing of speakers, admission and show times.
