ZYZZYVA’s Summer Celebration

July 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Hosted by Oscar Villalon. With Zyzzyva contributors tba.

Come join the staff of ZYZZYVA and special guests as they celebrate the journal’s milestone 125th issue outdoors in Kerouac Alley. Featuring short readings from past and recent contributors, this gathering will be a chance to toast the community the journal has built around itself since 1985 and celebrate ZYZZYVA’s editorial legacy. More details soon!

Reflecting the values that make San Francisco a cultural beacon, ZYZZYVA publishes a literary journal defined by its risk-taking and egalitarianism, and by its focus on inclusivity and excellence. With each issue, ZYZZYVA offers a meaningful consideration of the most urgent ethical concerns of our time, in part via themed issues on topics ranging from resistance, the border, and art to the environment, labor, and technology. We create substantial space for poetry, nonfiction, interviews, fiction, and art from an array of voices, resulting in a lively, thoughtful conversation in print, online, and in-person, across genres and generations, answering the need for a unique kind of engagement.

This event is made possible by support from the City Lights Foundation. To learn more visit: https://citylights.com/foundation/
