Forum Magazine Presents…Fiction and Poetry from CCSF at Lit Crawl 2013.

For the first time ever, Forum Magazine will have a presence at Lit Crawl!  Our readings will take place at the Latin American Club (3286 22nd St.) from 6pm to 7pm, and feature artists from our Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 issues including Charlotte Hull, Real Lapalme, Seth Luther, Natalie Saunders, John Silverman, and Jerome Steegmans.

If you don’t already know about it, Lit Crawl is a citywide event during which venues such as art galleries, bars, bookstores, bowling alleys, cafes, community spaces, restaurants, stores, and even police stations host simultaneous live readings around the city in just over three hours.  In some cases, artists can show up to read their fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and more at these venues to live audiences from their areas.  (Hint: Look for the ‘Open Mic’ listings!)  So whether you’re an artist, a connoisseur of art, or both you can get something out of it.  Each and every event is free, though they will be accepting donations and every little bit helps! 

For more information, please follow the above link.  We hope to see you there!  

Post-Apocalyptic Top 3

Post-Apocalyptic is a big genre right now, especially in current television shows and movies.  From zombie outbreaks to alien invasions, post-nuclear attacks to worldwide technological crashes, and even natural disasters that destroy modern civilization – you have access to your favorite end-of-the-world scenario in many forms.

However, when recommending post-apocalyptic as a genre, what are your top 3?  I will happily start this, though mine are all visual in form (but it takes talent to write a good screenplay or tv show episode, as well):

1)      Falling Skies (tv show)

2)      Elysium (movie)

3)      The Road (movie)

And the final season of the television show Fringe is definitely a close fourth.

But enough from me, what are your top three?  Please, comment below to let us know.

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
