There is an upside to the Zoom/zombie era: an independent arts publication can gather its far-flung contributors in one location to celebrate a new release. So please join the writers and editor of the newest edition of Zoetrope: All-Story as they read stories, illuminate the editorial process, and discuss how such productions presage the collaboration-in-isolation that defines creative output today. Maybe other stuff, too. BYOB.

Founded and published by Francis Ford Coppola, and a four-time winner of the National Magazine Award for Fiction, Zoetrope: All-Story is a quarterly, print-only publication of short fiction, art, and essays on film, each edition of which is designed in its entirety by a leading artist. The Fall 2020 edition was designed by the acclaimed filmmaker Kelly Reichardt (Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff, Certain Women, First Cow) with never-before-seen tracings and drawings.
