POC ZINE PROJECT — POC Zine Project's report back from C.L.I.T FEST 2012 + zine giveaway!

POC Zine Project's report back from C.L.I.T FEST 2012 + zine giveaway!

Julia B. aka War In A Dress read for POC Zine Project from her new zine Suburban Jamerican Fancy at this year’s C.L.I.T FEST at the Reform Church in Highland Park, New Jersey on July 13, 2012.

Here’s what Julia shared:

Reading at C.L.I.T. Fest was great! I was a little self-conscious about reading, since I haven’t made a zine in a long time, but it went well. I sat on stage to read, and in that intimate space it felt really comfortable. A couple people came up to me after I finished to talk, so that was good… who doesn’t like friendly strangers?

Bummed that I didn’t have the chance to see the entire night, but I had an awesome time while I was there. Really enjoyed 3Jane and Aye Nako, the two bands I got to see, and it was great to meet Rachel and Sari (the folks behind Hoax Zine) and Cristy Road (Glad to know I’m not the only one whose middle school perspective shifted thanks to Green Day’s Dookie album!).

The energy there was great; the enthusiasm of the organizers and the attendees for the folks who came through showed, and I think that proves well that if you really want to see the kind of art/music/writing/whatever you’re into, coming together with like minds and creating an event can be really rewarding.

If you weren’t able to attend and wish you could have experienced Julia B.’s reading live, we’ve scanned and uploaded Suburban Jamerican Fancy for you to read and download online. Julia describes it as “a brown suburban weirdo’s ways of escape.”

Enjoy!
