We’re heading to Tokyo to begin working on a project with good friends of our Matthias Wermke and Mischa Leinkauf. While we are there, we’ll be collaborating with Booklet Library to do a small release party for the current issue of Megawords at the Shibaura House.
If you are in Tokyo, please join us!

Megawords is in the reading room of a great project in Cairo! Some info:
In an economic climate marked by the demise of the publishing house and book- store, artists, writers, and designers are self-producing low-budget, limited editions of experimental publications, and distributing them through their personal networks.
“In Print” begins on Sunday, February 5 at the Townhouse Galley. A room in the gallery will serve as a reading room where visitors can continue these cross-disciplinary discussions over a cup of coffee, and consult a curated selection of publications. Through these interactions and discussions, “In Print” hopes to create a platform for the further development of an independent, artist-driven publishing scene in Cairo.
Temple University Libraries’ Urban Archives and Megawords Magazine are partnering for a screening as part of the Zoe Strauss: Ten Years exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. All films are drawn from our television news collection and are loosely inspired by the work of Zoe Strauss, Megawords and the PMA itself. All footage where the gaze of the news camera puts you in touch with the rituals, traditions, places and challenges of Philadelphia and its residents over three decades. Some material has screened at previous UA screenings and some is new.
Advance tickets are free (but with a $3.50 service charge) here:
You could also come to the PMA earlier to reserve a seat with no charge.
