It's almost Fall...

A sneak peek at Lisa Luck's original design for our Fall 2012 issue cover. Read more about it on Lisa's blog, Hello Lisa.
...and that means our "Peace, Love and Happiness" issue is almost out! In celebration, we are going to be putting up some other "sneak peeks" of what we have in store, including some beautiful illustrations by new C.L.A.P. contributor Molly Butterfloss and a look at our interview with the amazingly talented tapestry-ist Erin M. Riley.

C.L.A.P. contributor Ryn Gibson and I are also going to be featured on this week's Culture Queue on Radio K talking all about C.L.A.P.  and the upcoming issue. You can tune in at 6 pm this coming Sunday, or check it out later once they get it up on the archives. Through the process of doing the interview, I learned that Molly Harrington (now Hilgenberg)'s piece on going braless was a hit, that C.L.A.P. processes typically are connected to getting drunk and that I need to find myself a meaningful, well-paying job (don't we all?).

And THAT means that some of the totally awesome events we have been looking forward to for months are almost here. Events like...

Come check out the unveiling of our Fall issue, get your hands on a copy (hot off the press!) and check out tons of other sweet self-publishers. The event is FREE and takes place from 12-6 at Powderhorn Park in Minneapolis this Saturday, September 22nd.
