Workshop this weekend and other news

 I'm teaching a workshop this Saturday that I'm really excited about. The For The Birds Collective has put together a series of events (as part of the seventh annual BIG SHE-BANG) and this particular day of workshops will focus mainly on the written word. A full description of all the workshops can be found at the For The Birds website or on this little flier below.

Saturday, August 27th 2011
1PM – 6 PM
WORD Bookstore
126 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, NY 11222

2PM The Printed World: Self-publishing, promotion, and the many means in which to get your ideas out with Caroline Paquita of Pegacorn Press
A workshop addressing different methods to create printed works (zines, comics, chapbooks + more) that covers some of the most commonly used printing processes. A brief history of self-publishing will be discussed, as well as topics such as materials, layout, different printing options, binding, and distribution. While there will be a focus on producing works in a more “low-fi,” hands-on fashion that utilizes common or easy to find materials, people familiar with self-publishing may learn of new ways to address common issues that often come up in the production side of printing their own work.

 Other big news? Well, I quit forgetters after we returned from our European tour in June. That's my "official statement" for now so please don't bother to contact me with questions concerning my decision, particularly if you write for internet music sites. A longer critique of my experience in this band (and the culture that has surrounded it) as a queer ally and feminist minded lady will come soon- but only after I get some of my own personal projects done.
