InSight: Quail Bell Magazine
Richmond has a rising star for arts, literature, and culture coverage: Quail Bell Magazine. The mag is online but also features an in-the-flesh print version called Quail Bell Express. Their line-up of editors, writers, art directors and social media gurus all fall within college age range, which is a boon to their publication. The vibe is serious yet youthful, with a sense of commitment that hopefully translates to longevity. (Too many art zines come and go in this town.)
Sunday, February 19th brings an opportunity to go get acquainted with Quail Bell and its writers. Chop Suey Books will host a reading, Imagimania, at 5pm. Free but donations are welcome.
