On the Intersection of Media and Community
Monday, September 15 at 7 p.m.
Modern Times Bookstore, 888 Valencia Street (at 20th), San Francisco, 415-282-9246

This year, PM Press published my pamphlet called, "Become the Media: A Critical History of Clamor Magazine." The booklet is largely about my experience working on the project, and some observations about what our strengths and weaknesses were - and what lessons I hope others will learn.

One of the key motivations of Clamor was to support community -- both by providing a forum in which progressives and radicals could share, strategize, celebrate, and criticize, as well as providing new voices access to a media outlet.

Please join me for a talk on the intersection of independent media and radical communities. I'll talk for a few minutes on the history of the magazine, and then contributors from throughout our seven-year run will speak on their experience with independent media and the current work.

Special guests include: Julia Serano, Eric Zassenhaus, Rachel Fudge, Gordon Zola, Cole Krawitz, Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz, Dorian Katz, Andrew Stelzer, and others TBA!
