Hey, it’s been a while. Remember us? We’ve been super busy tying up loose ends for the Stamens & Pistils Spring Zine Tour and getting new stuff planned. We have a June Clancy’s reading slated for Sun. 6/22 from 7:30-9:30 over at our old mainstay Uncharted Books in Logan Square. Theme TBD.
Confirmed Readers Include: Paul Durica, Ingrid Haftel, Elisa Shoenberger and Nicki Yowell. Want to get in on the action? Contact us at selfpublishersofchicago@gmail and we’ll let you know if we can find a spot for you!
In other developments….
PDX Zine Symposium: SPOC will be headed back to Portland from July 12-13 for the Portland Zine Symposium in Oregon. We’re also working on a workshop on community for zinesters for the event. Huzzah!
Looking Forward: Running SPOC is amazing and rad in so many ways but also super time consuming. It’s important to all of us to keep it running and strong as a viable community but that takes a lot of energy to be sure. If you’re itching to get involved in something, (I know we’re all spread thin so no sweat if not), please get in touch. Esp. with blog posts, Facebook, organizing, emails etc. And if you have an idea for a workshop/party/event and want to take the lead on it, let me know! I’ll get it all set up.
