Some Updates

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years and developed some solid resolutions for 2012. I wanted to share some updates. The next Writers Showcase at New Visions Studio and Gallery will be held on Saturday, Jan. 14 at 7 pm. The venue is located at 201 Vine Street, and there is free parking in front of the gallery. We had a wonderful turnout during the first event back in November, and I’m hoping for the same or even better this time. Next week, I’ll post a description of all of the readers involved. It will be a solid mix of poetry, non-fiction, and fiction.

I also want to mention that I have a poem, “How I Remember Her,” published in the new issue of Evening Street Review. This is a wonderful print journal published out of Ohio. Check it out here.

Finally, I want to share an update about ZineFest 2012. Last year, the organizers received a county grant that basically paid for the event. This year, the county received even more applications, and unfortunately, ZineFest did not secure any grant money. The organizers are trying to raise enough funds to secure the venue for a soon-to-be scheduled June date. They are seeking donations, and if you can help out, that would be much appreciated. Feel free to email them at scrantonzinefestival@gmail.com. Any support would be much appreciated. Last year’s event was a huge success and brought in writers, artists, and zinesters from across the East Coast, and I hope the event keeps going.

That’s all for now. Happy Writing, Happy New Year!
