2018: our year in review
We’ve published two issues, and started supplying Buddy to Kilgore’s, BookBar, Innisfree, and Quimby’s. Issue #3 is our first perfect bound issue and first to be available online. We added several new Editors from across the country (see our Masthead). We participated at Denver Zine Fest in June and Zines & Cereal in December, both productions of our friends at Denver Zine Library. We’ve started our BookDrive by making our first donations to the Mental Health Center of Denver. We held our very first reading event (our first anniversary) in October at Innisfree in Boulder.
May we (and you!) continue to grow and do great things in 2019!
Happy New Year and “keep writing…”

Buddy considers any topic or style, but we are also a safe space for writing about mental health and social issues. We’re also building on some community involvement. See our “About” page for more info.
