If you’re around northeastern, PA this weekend, then I encourage you to come out to Scranton ZineFest. Since it’s creation a few years ago, the festival has grown to include more artists, zinesters, poets, and this year musicians. It has become an inclusive festival over the last few years that does its best to include a variety of art forms and media. The free event will take place Saturday from 1-7 p.m. at the Tripps Park Community Center, 2000 Dorothy St. in Scranton. This year’s event features artists from all over the East Coast, including Maryland, Philadelphia, Richmond, DC, and artists from far away as Chicago. For a list of the artists and zinesters participating, click here.
There will also be live music throughout the day and a poetry reading at 2 p.m. I’ll be reading, along with Rich Howells, Alexis Belluzzi, Rachael Goetzke, and David J. Bauman. For a list of our bios, click here.
If you want more information about the festival, then check out this article The Weekender just published.
A big thank you to Jessica Meoni and her partners in crime for organizing this whole thing for yet another year.
One thought on “Scranton ZineFest”
Reblogged this on The Dad Poet and commented:
Brian Fanelli has made the two blog posts I wanted to make this week, so I’m just going to point your reading glasses in his direction for the information about ZineFest in Scranton this weekend where I will have the fun of reading with him and several other poets. He has all the information here, including the ZineFest home page, the schedule and a link to our bios, so check it out and if you are in the area, by all means, please drop in this weekend!
The other post he made is about his being the featured poet for June in the journal Contemporary American Voices, where I have the honor to have three of my poems appear with his work. More on that in my next post!
