The excitement and chaos of summer is in full effect. I keep thinking things will slow down, but it just doesn't seem to be happening. Two things before we go any further:
1. Alexis Wolf (of Ilse Content zine) and I are fundraising for a collaborative zine project and interactive Northwest tour! We have a Kickstarter where you can pre-order zines and get some book/zine packs to help us offset the costs of the project. Any support you can lend is so appreciated.
2. We're giving away two Fan Club memberships on our Tumblr! You just have to reblog the post to enter to win a zine in your mailbox for the next twelve months.
