Over on our Facebook page we've posted two albums of photos (albeit crummy iPhone-quality photos) from Makeout Creek's recent visit to AWP in Denver, CO. Hit the links and you should be able to check them out, even in spite of the Facebookiness of things. Also: above is a jpeg of one of the signs we made to advertise the Makeout Creek table, with Issue Four cover by Oura and line art by Aaron Johnson.
The first album features all the readers from the Diode/Makeout Creek reading at the Jones Theater in the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, organized by the wonderful Patty Paine. If you enjoy harshly-lit out-of-focus photos, this is the album for you! Above, poet Abayomi Animashaun.
The second album is a bit of miscellany from the floor of the AWP bookfair. Above, Issue One contributor S.E. Smith ("Advice for Fur Drill Novices").
