Memories Into Memoirs

Writers workshop returns to Las Vegas

Pick a memory, any memory. Climbing a tree at age 10. The fender-bender you tried to hide from your parents right after you got your license. Walking along a dirt road beside a field of wildflowers under a vivid, kaleidoscopic sunset.

Lions, Dead Cats and Snakes, Oh My!

Flash Fiction contest winners

The Flash Fiction contest results are in. And this year, our beloved readers / literary virtuosos went decidedly anthropomorphic and animalistic. Sure, the prompts we provided included a rattlesnake and a deceased feline, but the bite you brought more than answered the call of the wild (including a couple of great ditties about civilized lions and cancer-stick-sharing birds and fish).

Feature

Romancing the Novel

My snootiness was in full flower as I drove to the Esther Bone Memorial Library in Rio Rancho. I was on my way to a panel discussion featuring three New Mexico-based romance writers: Celeste Bradley, Doranna Durgin and Alice Duncan. It didn’t help that I was stressing out about being late to something I’d already decided wouldn’t teach me anything. They’re not for serious people, I thought. They aren’t real books. I pulled into the parking lot and hurried into the building. Although full of preconceptions, I secretly harbored a small flame of hope that someone would redeem the genre for me.

Burque zines unite!

A small magazine, people

We’ve got some really great zines in this city. If you don’t know about them, or don’t know where to get them, come to the zine reading tonight! If you’re too lazy to read, or don’t like to, that’s okay tootonight people will read to you!

Those who want to read from their zines, or even from someone else’s they love, are invited to email cellardoorgifts@gmail.com and get a spot. Everyone else is just invited to come check out some new issues of various tiny mags.

These readers are confirmed so far: Erik Gamlem, Marya Jones, Mike Smith and Lisa Barrow

There will be snacks, and a big special announcement about the upcoming Albuquerque Zine Fest. People 12 years old and up, please!

Some new zines I already grabbed

Hitting the streets this week is the latest “Wig Wam Bam,” the zine of local music and nepotism put forth by sometimes Alibi contributor Captain America. This one will review about six months’ worth of shows. Pick it up at Cellar Door, Winning Coffee and Low Spirits. Also hot off the press is the new Nightly Noodle Monthly, a brochure for the inside of Eva Avenue’s brain. Snag it at Winning, and other places she might put it.

(Special thanks to my hand models who both have very good-looking faces that were not useful in these shots)

Zine Reading
Thursday, June 16, 7 to 10 p.m.

Feature: Contest Winners

Thanks for Flashing Us

The winners of our Flash Fiction contest

Entries started pouring in as soon as we announced this year’s Flash Fiction contest. It was like that closet you haphazardly throw things into, without order, squeezing the door closed with your body weight to cram in all the stuff without a proper home. Toppling stacks of paper and files, bits of yarn, nightmare flickers, battered toys, love letters, unused sports equipment, dream diaries, lost hopes, failed romances―it’s all in there.
