1) Submissions for Artwork for the 2010 Portland Zine Symposium are due today! Go here for more info.
2) I will be reading with a host of portland zinesters and small press authors at Powell’s Books in Downtown Portland today as part of Smallpressapalooza! The event starts at 5 but I won’t be reading until 9pm. Go here to see who all will be performing.
3) I’ll be performing so late tonight because my friend Caleb is coming in to town and I’m going to go meet him at the airport! Caleb is one of the lovely people I met while I was in Halifax at the Anchor Archive Zine Residency I’m really excited to show him my city! We plan to take trips to the coast, and to the Riverhouse plus all sorts of bicycle adventures in Portland.
The past week has been filled with large button orders, laser printer woes that has me chatting with tech support for hours, a sick animal in the family, cleaning house, small cuts and minor injuries to my hands and fingers, practicing for the reading at Powell’s, and Paul and I celebrating our 13th, 6th, and 4th anniversaries.
It’s true! The 1oth annual Portland Zine Symposium is happening August 28 & 29th!
We are still looking for submissions for artwork. Go here for more details.
I’m on shift at the IPRC tonight where I made some tiny fliers with the 2010 Portland Zine Symposium dates on them to send out with orders and send to stores and zine events because we are still waiting on choosing the artwork.
The real awesome news is that someone in Spain offered to translate Brainscan 21 into Spanish! I have never had my zines translated so this is exciting. They will have two people working on the translation on the other side of the Atlantic and one of my friends here is going to proof it too. I’ll also have copies for distribution when they are done!
I have had a lot of weird/exciting/puzzling/fun correspondence this week and I can’t really blame it on the full moon because that’s tonight. Speaking of the full moon, Paul is working tonight so Full Moon Dance Night has been moved to tomorrow night. My awesome friend Caleb in Halifax sent me two Cub 7″s that I have been looking for forever so they will both be making rotations tomorrow evening.
