There is yet another wonderful literary/art event happening in northeast, PA this weekend. Stop by New Visions Studio and Gallery in Scranton for the third annual Scranton Zine Fest this Saturday. The event begins at noon and will feature dozens of zinesters from as far as MA to as close as Wilkes-Barre. The event will also include art for sale and a poetry reading beginning at 5:30. The featured readers include Rachael Goetzke, Steve Keating, Maggie Craig, Stanton Hancock, Jim Warner, and I.
At some point in the day, I’m taking part in a panel discussion on publishing. Maggie Craig, a novelist, will discuss self-publishing, while I discuss the traditional route of publishing through literary magazines and small presses. It should make for an interesting discussion, especially for writers seeking to get their work out there.
