Facebook event as msg? Sure!
Here's an event I made on Facebook called Laurie's in Toronto:
Admittedly it's cheeky to make an event for this, but it's the only way I could see to select everyone I know based in Toronto and send a message.
"fS girl here, coming to TO for the magazine conference next week (Tues-Thurs). Due to the mail strike, if anyone wants a subscriber copy of filling Station Issue 49, send me a msg and I'll bring you one! I could install myself in a central place of an evening for the purpose. If you don't have a subscription, you can purchase one online at www.fillingstation.ca/subscribe real easy. They're just $15 right now for our spring promo. Sure, nonprofits can do promos too, but unlike Honest Ed, we lack the lighting budget. Remember, we're the magazine with the cleanest restrooms.
Also, are there any readings going on? If so, please be welcome to spam me. I know about AvantGarden on Tuesday night, but unfortunately our Digital Editor gets in during the reading so I won't be able to make it. I'd love to come hear some lit while I'm around and blog about it for fS!
I don't get to big smoke often so I thought I'd ask around. Hope you don't mind the event invite! Thanks for reading."
Natalie Zina Walschots just let me know about the Literary Death Match on Thursday June 9th, so I'm planning to be there! If you want an Issue 49 and haven't yet bought one from your local indie bookstore, come on down to the Death Match and find me. I'll carry a few on my person at all times, cause hey, you never know when you're going to need a filling Station! p.s. While we have the cleanest restrooms across 5 provinces, please don't use fS *as* a washroom. It reads much better without sepiatone.
