Jack & Gin Fundraiser Success

Thank you everyone who supported the Jack & Gin fundraiser with their presence, prize donations, and raffle ticket purchases. With your help, we raised over $400 to assist with production costs for our upcoming  issues!

We had a great turn out filled with Kerouac School students, faculty, alumni, and friends. The gin and tonics were flowing, the prizes were plentiful, and our open mic featured impersonations of Ayn Rand, Jack Kerouac, and our upcoming Lenz lecturer Gary Snyder. I personally won a free yoga class and a signed copy of Anne Waldman’s The Iovis Trilogy in the raffle drawings. Score!

Here’s a few snapshots of the fun:

Poetry and Prizes!

Now we editors must get back to the proofreading process so we can get this awesome issue in your hands. Be sure to check back here for details on our release party in early 2012!
