Issue II


Due to uncontrollable circumstances, the release of Issue II has unfortunately been delayed, but because mind and body are strong, we have had a quick turn-around, and the rescheduled reception for Issue II is this Thursday, February 11. The time and place are the same; Atlas Cafe 3028 W. Armitage ave., 8-10 pm. Please feel free to bring friends to the reception, Issue II will be available for purchase.

In other news, the LSLR is now exhibiting on a Tumblr site:

This site will feature internet-tidbits of note, but also submitted original work in the form of photo, video, animation and audio. Really anything that can possibly be posted on a tumblr site is what we're looking for. Please submit these works to along with your name and cross-streets.

The LSLR is also in talks with Lynn Stevens of the blog Peopling Places to host an outdoor literature and music festival in Logan Square this spring. Details will be posted as they develop. Be sure to check out Lynn's blog which focuses on urban development of the milwaukee ave. main drag in Logan Square.

Issue II will be available through this site shortly, and at the four shops where you can currently find Issue I: G-Mart Comics and Wolfbait Boutique in Logan Square, and Quimby's Books and Myopic Bookstore in Wicker Park. We hope to expand our readerships base and venues for retail, so as the journal is available in more places, those detailes will also be posted.

Thank you all, and I hope to see you on Thursday!
