[PANK] hosts a thing it calls Invasions, sometimes reading, sometimes party, sometimes happening, that it might show something of its varied faces to the world, vent some of its pent up cacophonies, gnash its sharpened teeth in good company. Sometimes we collaborate with other magazines, presses, or literary arts organizations, other times we fly solo. Regardless, Invasions are great fun and happen too infrequently. Contact the editors if you’d like more information or want to get something going in your fair city.
