American Library Association Conference Chicago ALA 2013

The experience at the ALA Conference began like a zine fest, as I set up my Junk Drawer table and displayed my work.  But soon people began stopping by who were entirely unfamiliar with the zine scene.  I was unprepared for questions from one gentleman who asked me how I made money from zines, and if I knew how many of a particular issue would sell.  These were people from more of the business side of public services.  I realized that it was important to connect with these…

Midwest Zine Fest 2013

It was a good first time for me at the Midwest Zine Fest in Champaign Urbana.  (Or, as craigslist calls it, "Chambana.")  The fest was on the Urbana side.  I drove down with friends Nicki and Meghan from SPOC -Self Publishers of Chicago, and they had a table.  I had my Junk Drawer table, which was actually two old card tables I brought.  Other Chicago writers making the trip included…

Chicago Zine Fest 2013

I met some…

Chicago Zine Fest 2010

It was super cool to be at the Chicago Zine Fest. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Junk Drawer table. I'm glad people enjoyed playing "Guess the Odds & Ends." I only wish I'd had more time to spend at all the other tables. There were so many great zines and zinesters there. Feel free to write your comments about the zine fest, junk drawers, or anything from the zine fest weekend. Looking forward to next year.

"Junk Drawer" Zines in Artist Made Books Exhibit

Three zines from my "Junk Drawer" series will be part of an exhibition of artist made books at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. There will be 13 other artists and writers featured, and from what I've seen, most seem to be pretty accomplished. And then there's me, with little photocopied, stapled zines. Nothing fancy, but somehow they're in an art exhibit. Well, I'm just glad that zines are being recognized along with other "art books," as they call them.

The show takes place… Continue
