Over the weekend, we distributed the latest print edition of Electric Eel at Book Fort, a literary arts festival held annually at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. The cover features an excerpt of a poem by Roya Marsh, the author of the collection dayliGht, which we’re publishing in April 2020.

Volume 002 also includes an excerpt from High School, the forthcoming memoir by Tegan Quin and Sara Quin,


poems compiled by Aleksandar Hemon from the gaffes of Donald Trump,


comics by Chicago zine makers and illustrators,

Other things in print:
“I can see each moment passing by.”
“No sunglasses can hide the tears of top famous clown.”
“In dreaming meadows I cease to exist.”
