We’re pleased to announce that issue Three of Watchwordhas made it off the presses and into the hands of some lucky people!
The issue contains the work of twelve pioneering writers whose pieces range from the forthright and ironic to the oblique and sinister. Sounds like delicious summer reading to me! The artwork in issue Three displays a bold cover and a striking centerfold by Oakland artist Tony del Rio. To check out a sampling of writing and the cover artwork for the issue, please visit: http://watchwordpress.org.
Also on our website is information about our forthcoming soiree at 4001 Studios in Fruitvale to launch this issue–we hope all you local folks will join us for the party and for readings by contributors Jenny Bitner, Meg Hamill, and Sam Tsitrin. The event will take place on Wednesday, July 31st at 7pm, 4001 San Leandro Street, #29, Oakland…just three blocks from the Fruitvale BART station. More details to come…
