2018: our year in review

Photo by Shivkumar Dharmoji on Pexels.comWe’ve published two issues, and started supplying Buddy to Kilgore’s, BookBar, Innisfree, and Quimby’sIssue #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…”

    Yay! I donated—it’s the very least I can do since postage is so expensive, not to mention running a zine! Thanks again for the 2 beautifully produced comp. copies of Buddy & for the personalized Buddy pen – I love using it because it reminds me I was published in Issue #2 – an honor.
