This year’s issue includes interviews with various established writers, satire writers, featured comic artists, such as: Dave Eggers, Aimee Bender, Maddox, Robert Hamburger, excerpted art from Paul Hornschemeier, and an excerpt from Dwight Yates’ new book of short stories. The issue also includes a chain story by UC Riverside creative writing professors Dana Johnson, Michael Jayme-Becerra, and Chris Abani.

This issue also features the work of upcoming undergraduate writers and artists of UCR, many of which will be reading at the event. Those who attend will not only be able to purchase the new issue for $5 but will also be able to purchase past issues as well as a copy of Dwight Yates’ new book, "Haywire Hearts and Slide Trombones."
