Just in case you can’t wait for two weeks until An Ilse Content Anthology, by Alexis Wolf, officially goes on sale (premiering at the Portland zine symposium August 11-12th), you can pre-order it now from the Etsy shop. Books will ship August 10th.
I hope all is well out there, whatever you may be up to. We’ve been running around like banshees trying get An Ilse Content Anthology finalized and to the printer. On that note, we all got the first proof a few days ago and are SO excited for the last round of changes to be made so we can get them in hand! Here’s a sneak peek:
It looks pretty awesome so far!
We’re also getting ready for some pretty cool events. The first event on the bill is the Portland Zine Symposium, August 11 and 12th and Refuge. We’ll have copies of all our current titles, including the first print run of An Ilse Content Anthology, and a pretty good collection of new zines from both Neely and me as well. It’s going to be great.
The next event is a reading in Olympia at Orca Books on August 15th at 7PM. Alexis will be reading from An Ilse Content Anthology, and Neely will be there as well, reading from Mend My Dress: Collected Zines.
We’ll be wrapping up our events in August with a reading at Left Bank Books in Seattle, on August 17th at 7PM. Please join us for a night of per-zine readings including Alexis reading from An Ilse Content Anthology, Joshua James Amberson of “Basic Paper Airplane,” and Frances Farmer of “In Tension.”
We hope to see you soon at one (or more!) of our upcoming events.
Happy International Zine Month,
