Oral history of These Days

The good folks at Meet The Presses invited panelists for the Indie Lit Symposium to record a video about their press. So! Here’s a quick oral history of These Days issues one through six. I wish I could name everyone who has contributed and submitted, so I’ll do that here.

Thank you to Andrew Blackman, Avonlea Fotheringham, Bardia Sinaee, Ben Ladouceur and Scott Lemoine, Cameron Anstee and Jenn Huzera, Dave Currie and Jen Baker, Ellen Chang-Richardson, Erin Maxfield, Gail and Lawrence Blackman, IAN MARTIN, jesslyn delia smith, JM Francheteau, Jordan Chevalier, Justin Million, Kate Maxfield, Ksenija Spasic, LN Woordward, Mark Sokolowski, Nina Jane drystek, Owen Hewitt and Gabrielle Forget, Peter Gibbon, Sam Cronk, Sara Maxfield, Sneha and John Madhavan-Reese and their three daughters, Tanya Decarie, Vanessa Davies, and Zishad Lak, for your contributions and your support.

These Days @ Indie Lit Symposium Nov 29

I’ve been invited to the Indie Lit Symposium‘s panel on magazines and journals! I’ll be joined with the good folks from CAROUSEL Magazine, Filling Station, and Augur Magazine. I’m absolutely honoured to be included on behalf of my little zine, and I cannot thank all my contributors enough.

The Symposium runs Nov 26 to 29, and it’s all free. You can register via their website. My show’s Nov 29 at noon Eastern, so sleep in if you can, make something good, and settle in with us.

Those are good questions and I have no answers for them.

the indefatigable rob mclennan interviewed me as part of his ‘Ottawa small press fair at home.’ You can read the whole interview here.

This whole endeavour has all brought me back to my roots, photocopying and stapling black and white art together and just getting it out there. It feels great.
