Chicken-Head #42 will be out in a week or so, I just finished folding 1000 copies. Fun!

Join us May 18th, 2013 for the Fourth Annual Riverside Do-It-Yrself Print Fest. 1-5pm. FREE

Zineworks and the Blood Orange Infoshop have collaborated on a day to celebrate Inland Empire and Southern California DIY print culture. Come spend the day with zines, screen-printing, readings by local writers, and a zine lounge library for browsing.

At 5:30, join us for *DIY: We're Doin' It*, a short documentary about women in the DIY culture who organize and create for their communities. Afterward, we will host a short Q & A with the director Maria A. Yanez.

I think the problem has been corrected with the event page. The poetry afternoon is from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, featured poets Luivette Resto and Conney Williams will read some of their most recent work, then anyone is welcome to stand up and share their work poetry or otherwise.

Hey Seite, thanks for the tip! I'd like to check out the event page, but it isn't working. Can you post the details here?

Thanks guys! I'm also going to find a lit/poetry open mike and read some of my zine stuff there. Maybe the LA zinesters could meet up at a reading at some point!

Oh my bad. Thanks for the clarification!
