Shall we compare zines to a summer’s day? April is National Poetry Month, which is the perfect time for us to celebrate zines and chapbooks focused on verse. Whether the poetry in your collection is serious, humorous, rhyming, or free verse — get out your favorite chapbooks! And if you self-publish your own poetry, we would love for you to read from your work, too.
Grab the poetry zines that make your heart sing, BYOS(nacks), and join us on Zoom for Zine Club Chicago Online: Poetry Zines Edition at 7:30 p.m. CT Tuesday, April 26!
** RSVP required ** We want to make sure that our online Zine Club Chicago events are a safe space, so we won’t be releasing the Zoom link publicly. If you’d like to attend, please email email@example.com to RSVP by 9 p.m. CT Monday, April 25 (the event before our event). We’ll email you the Zoom link by 5 p.m. CT on Tuesday, April 26.
Zine newbies and longtime enthusiasts alike are always welcome at Zine Club Chicago, the city’s only book club-style event for people who read zines. This free monthly series is produced by Cynthia E. Hanifin and sponsored by Quimby’s Bookstore. Anna Jo Beck designs our monthly flyers, created our logo, and made our Zine Club Chicago Shout-Outs site, where folks can peruse and recommend zines we’ve discussed at our events: https://zineclubchicagoshoutouts.spread.name/
