Help a Local Zine Support Low-Income Cancer Patients

Due to my recent hiatus, I never got a chance to publicize last Friday's release party for "Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore."

Happily, Baltimore Brew has posted full video coverage at the event. (Thanks to William Hughes for the video)

If you missed it too, don't worry, you can still pick up a copy at Atomic Books, one of Baltimore's best local bookstores for zines and fun books of all kinds.

William P. Tandy, the zine's editor, is also a cancer survivor who has written about his experiences for the zine.

Every year since his chemotherapy ended in September 2007, he has volunteered to support the St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation's "Swim Across the Sound", a daylong relay race that begins in Port Jefferson, NY, crosses Long Island Sound and finishes in Bridgeport, CT.

The event is this Saturday, August 7th.

Donations can be made here.

And if you are interested in submitting your own polished essay or bar-room sermon from a stool, you can send your article (100 – 2,000 words) to as an attached Word document.

This is great cause! I need to tell some of my fellow writers about this!
