A year ago a SPOC was born. After several weeks of labor, planning and advising, a group of zinesters, artists and publishers gathered to make a brand new community.
Quite a bit has happened since our first meeting. We’ve made three zines as a group: Fire Dogs, Ghostly Stories and our COLLAGE zine. We ventured through salt caves and drank pink punk cosmos. It’s been a good first year of life and it’s time to celebrate how far we’ve come.
Won’t you join us on FRIDAY, APRIL 26 from 7-9 p.m. at Uncharted Books to look back fondly and gaze forward as hopeful as a pioneer prairie dog?
Our raucous extravaganza will include:
– a zines in review performance,
– state of the SPOC updates,
– town hall question/answer session,
– and, of course,CAKE and PUNCH. We finally get our first sugar!
Join us afterward for drinks in the of-the-moment Logan Square nightclub hub.
We’re looking for readers for the evening. Did you contribute to one of our zines or just have a hankering to get up and spit your truth? E-mail selfpublishersofchicago@gmail to get on the roster.
