Konvention Korner

Where have we been all your life? Candidly, that's between you and your pastor. But we can speak to our absence the past 3.5 weeks. The entire Krew has been realigned from their regular tasks to prepare material and materiel for the 14th annual Portland Zine Symposium. This has been a time-consuming but rewarding process, though not without its challenges--most notably the ordeal of briefing our table representatives, the inattentive Chris Peebles and the mercurial BLENKO. Another hiccup occurred when GRECH used all of our marketing kollateral to build and subsequently burn an effigy of FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler. As luck would and usually does have it however, we found a solution thanks to Gabe Gabriel's acumen as an archive spelunker. He managed to dig up some old promotional items from a previous iteration of The Kreation Korner that, although a tad outdated, will spread the word of our Kause at the Sympo nonetheless. If you're in or around PDX the weekend of July 12 & 13, stop by Ambridge Event Center in the Lloyd District and see us! Until then, enjoy these gems Gabe stumbled upon during our preparation efforts:
