  • The Writer's Block 1020 Fremont Street Las Vegas, NV 89101 (map)

An interactive reading and workshop with Burn Black Zine Distro & Tenderspeck, with special guest Ashley Ferro.

In the Spring of 2010, Burn Black founder, Rory “Bee” Britt's close friend, Melissa Lynn Williams passed away suddenly at the age of 23. Melissa, a self-proclaimed healer and visual artist captured people’s hearts and minds by allowing their trauma to be released in her presence. Burn Black was then created in her spirit as a space not only for her artwork to live on but her memory as well.

Each issue contained a collection of raw and powerful stories from people all over the world on how they turned trauma or tragedies into personal triumphs or life lessons. Part personal essays connecting people, part fanzine, part pop-culture outlet, Burn Black became unique publishing endeavor—“a zine with a heart.”

Burn Black #6 The Love Issue will focus on interviews with podcasters, essays on love, and as always the same great columns—including ‘Let it Bee’ by its awesome founder!

Join Burn Black and the Las Vegas Zine Library for an evening of shared stories and workshopping. Attendees are encouraged to bring along a journal, and some of their own work.
