Listening party / fundraiser / zine hangout

You know the EFZRR loves zines, but did you know that we love tapes too? This & That Tapes has just put out a compilation album to benefit Womanly magazine, with all proceeds going to the organization. Womanly provides accessible health information to women and non-binary people through visual and literary art.

Come to the party and hang out, listen to music from the tape, and read zines from our collection. You’ll be able to purchase a tape and a copy of the magazine at the event.

The artists featured on the album include: Interminable*, Lauren Napier, Attia Taylor, Inletts*, REMOTE/CONTROL*, ConcernedApe, MC Lars, Tall Tall Trees, little stray*, Avery Cerulean*, and Emily Bate*.

* Philly artist!

If you can't make it to the event, you can buy a tape or digital download at thisandthattapes.com

Hosted by the EFZRR. Contact me for the address.

Zine Workshop @ The Soapbox

In this three-hour workshop at The Soapbox Community Print Shop and Zine Library we will talk about the history and culture of zine making and punk community before diving in and making our own zines. Before beginning we’ll look at a wide variety of handmade publications from The Soapbox's library for inspiration, then warm up with writing exercises and creative brainstorming. You will learn at least one simple but clever paper-folding technique to use that day and in your future zine publishing endeavors. All materials—glue sticks, stencils, clip art, colored pencils, glitter, and more—will be provided.

The Soapbox is located at 4700 Kingsessing Ave. in West Philadelphia. The workshop costs $35, $30 for members. There are many benefits to membership so be sure to check the organization out!

Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

Come do your holiday shopping at this pop-up shop at The Monkey & The Elephant coffee shop in Brewerytown! I’ll be there on Sunday, December 2 from 12-5 selling books, zines, prints, cards, and other paper goods by local artists.

The Monkey and The Elephant is a job and life skills program that seeks to equip youth who have aged out of foster care with the tools necessary to make the transition to self-sufficient adulthood. It’s a wonderful program, and proceeds from the sales of this work will support these young adults in transition.

There will be a variety of sales and other holiday fun going on throughout the Brewerytown neighborhood that day, so come check it out!

July-brary at the East Falls Zine Reading Room

📚 We have a great big collection more than 1,200 zines we'd like to share, so we're declaring this the month of July-brary. 🌙

About half of the collection is cataloged, which is helpful if you're looking for something specific. If you'd rather just browse the shelves, that works too. We have personal zines, comics, zines about gender and feminism, zines with pretty drawings, silly humor zines, zines about monsters and animals, DIY how-to zines, and many more. 

Drop by anytime between 1-4pm on Saturday, July 21st. 

Message me for the address.

Fun-a-Day Show

I will be showing my project at the group show, which is organized to encourage people to make one thing each day during the month of January. I've participated in Fun-a-Day Philadelphia for a few years now and it's always rewarding and, yeah, fun.

Come hear the West Philly postpunk band Rabbits to Riches, the delicate folk songs of Potential Gospel, and the work of poet and fiction writer Oki Sogumi and poet and arts journalist Amanda Silberling. You'll get a sneak peak of Joe Carlough's music/video work in progress, and Katie Haegele will debut her new zine, "Dear Everybody."
